Excerpt: Internal linkage on power switch broke after a few years, cheap plastic. I find juice extraction on fruits to be very effective, I tried compressing the pulp and was not able to extract any significant additional juice. Cleanup, I dont care, just take the parts outside and use the miracle of the garden hose.
Pros: Extracts a lot of juice. Powerful, sharp blade. Doesnt clog easily
Cons: Breaks after a few years. Pulp tends to accumulate in machine and not the container.
Excerpt: I've just started juicing, and wanted an inexpensive juicer that would give me a good experience. Bear in mind that I have no point of comparison with other juicers, as this is the only one I have used. My experience: it makes juice--easily, quickly and without much fuss. It does not leak or spray. It comes apart/goes back together easily. Power seems adequate. I wish the feed tube were slightly larger.
Pros: Fairly quiet. Most parts rinse clean easily. Does the job. Seems well-made.
Cons: Pulp ejector gets clogged easily. Lots of parts to clean.
Excerpt: MP80 is no very efficient. If you want to juice occasionally it would be OK, but not for those intending to improve health and seriously juice. Two weeks of every day juicing and blades are dull and no longer efficient. Hard to clean--lots of little nooks and crannys that collect mush. Obvious that inventors NEVER actually used it or they would have molded the body shape without those collection spaces.
Pros: great for occasional juicing--safe
Cons: not very durable, can't order replacement blades, too hard to clean
Excerpt: My wife thinks I am a freak of some sort. If we decide to buy something like a small appliance for example, we can't just go to a store and buy it, no. I have to fire up the computer and collect reams of data on the products in order to pick the one I want. However, I didn't do that with the Braun juicer. It was bought in our pre-computer days. A stroke of luck maybe. We bought the juicer in 1991. It is still running as well as it did the first day we used it.
Pros: very sharp cutters, strong motor.
Cons: collection cup a little small if you want to do a larger amount.
Excerpt: I was given a Moulinex centrifugal juicer some months ago and quickly fell in love with the whole concept of juicing. After a long period of daily use, the Moulinex literally flew apart into pieces and I looked for a replacement. The Braun MP 80 was the only reasonable model I could find in local retail stores, and I was too impatient to order something by mail.
Pros: inexpensive, readily available, easy to assemble and use
Excerpt: I bought this juicer based on what a friend of mine had to say about it. I had seen her use the juicer several times. She told me how easy it was to use and even let me give it a test run before I went and bought my own. I was very impressed with the performence of this juicer. I like to make my own fresh juices. I dont like drinking the store bought stuff with all of the additives and preservatives. I have been using this juicer for 3 months. Using it is very simple.
Excerpt: I wanted to buy a juicer for my sister when I was visiting her in a small town in Maine, and the Braun juicer was the only one they sold at the hardware store. When I got it to my sister's house, I really liked the way it juiced leafy vegetables and just about anything (my Krups juicer, which I have at my home, doesn't do a very good job with soft fruits and vegetables, so the Braun is superior to the Krups in that regard).
