Summary: I live in Southern California and enjoy oranges given to me by my neighbors. At 88 I do not care to hand squeeze or use a manual citrus juicer. This juicer also provides a device to keep pulp from your juice . It cleans very easily and does a very thorough job of extracting the maximum juice.
This model is essentially a reincarnation of a 220V juicer ...

Summary: This model is essentially a reincarnation of a 220V juicer that I have used for 20 years(!) until it suffered a "heart attack" recently. I tried to replace it with the MPZ22 model,which unfortunately is a 110V piece of equipment,using a transformer but I was unsuccessful. The transformer I used did not provide adequate amperage. I returned both products.
Summary: Too large. Too many pieces. Some pieces too flimsy. Does solve the problem of the long dribbling spout. Juices very well. It is a nuisance to have to buy a transformer to be able to use it on 110 volts. Still it seems the best that I can do to replace an old Braun that had everything right. After a week's use I threw out a juicer of another brand. I guess I'll keep lesser Braun.
Summary: Bought this unit in 1988 from AAFES catalog while living in Morroco (it's a dual voltage model) and use it, on an off, to this day. Not sure about its lack of torque as it seems to work well with oranges, limes and lemons. Also we've never had a broken tines in the strainer. At times It will plug with pulp with certain types of oranges, but generally seeds stay out of the spout.
Summary: I have a 110V model, but they share the same parts other than the base. Rather than messing with the hard-to-order components, I decided to order the entire thing. The old 110V unit has worked flawlessly for two decades, but there is some sign of wear on the cup and rotating components.
