Excellent kitchen appliance by Braun it's a real shame they're no longer available in the U.S.A.
9 December 2011
Summary: I actually was lucky enough to find the last few of these machines in new condition that are actually 120 volts (that WILL work in North America) and so far so good (I got it on 12.N0V.2011). My juicer was manufactured in Spain (if anyone is concerned with the country of manufacture). The machine is easy to wash and clean and it's made up of the motor base, the juice container, dust cover, handle lid, cone, and the top lid.
Summary: Note, this rating of 5 stars was for the last model of juicer by Braun, the MPZ-6 model. I wish this newer model was USA compliant bc. the last juicer I had by them lasted 10 years. It was so easy to clean with just water, sturdy, & reliable. It didn't break the bank either. Ho Hum.. I'll have to find another brand. If you are looking at this model, and compliance isn't an issue, I would put my bets on this.
Summary: Since I moved to the US 5 years ago, I had been looking for a good citrus juicer. First I owned the usual Oster and it was too simple (no pulp control), then I bought a fancy but awful Cuisinart CCJ-100 Citrus Pro Juicer (even the 2 amazon stars it gets are too much) that I returned. The BRAUN MPZ9 is wonderful in that it is: - Functional: Juices well and quickly.
Strainer is not well designed whilst mechanics are good

Summary: Whilst the mechanics of this unit are very good, and I bought this because my old Braun juicer had had its day but performed extremely well, a major design flaw here is that there are only small holes in the center of the unit to let the juice run through and if you want the smallest pulp setting, all the pulp and juice gets trapped on the perimeters of the strainer.

Summary: simple and very functional, it does what it has to do, juice oranges and filter the pulp as much as you wish. I also juiced some limes and it worked perfectly. there's one slight "problem", when you assemble the 3 parts again after washing them: you have to put the upper part carefully back on, since it sometimes feels like it's going to brake (and maybe it won't, but better to be careful).
