Excerpt: Two of our favorite small appliances are from Breville (countertop oven and espresso machine), so when I was disappointed by others, I broke down and spent the money on this juicer. It's pretty fantastic! The no-drip spout works like a dream, the whole thing is easy to use, a cinch to clean and it gets every last drop of juicy goodness out of the oranges, lemons and meyer lemons I've tried so far.
Summary: It came with only 1 strainer and about a dozen little plastic c-clips that I have no idea what they're for. The new juicers are advertised with 2 strainers, so I just assumed the rebuilt one would have 2, but it was in new like condition. The juicer leaves a lot of wet pulp in the strainer. I use the back of a spoon to squeeze the pulp to get a little more juice out. But, I do love the fresh squeezed juice. I won't return it, but I wouldn't buy another one, either.
Excerpt: The top part fell apart and was not able to be fixed -- it made the juicer worthless. For the price a disaster. I liked the lip that kept the juice from dripping. But it was a pain to clean as well. Do not recommend this item.
Excerpt: We love the build quality of this juicer (and our Breville espresso machine). I wouldn't worry about the $200 for the machine - it is the constant supply of fruit you'll need! We enjoy 4 cups of freshly juiced oranges and grapefruits each morning, and juice a lemon for a couple of days of fresh lemon juice for our tea. This juicer is extremely sturdy the stainless steel parts are beautifully made. You can't go wrong with this if you are serious about juicing.
Summary: This is a top quality juicer. I have had 3 different citrus juicers. This one really knocks all their socks off. Removes more juice and pulp than any other I have owned. The metal screen for removing pulp from juice does build up quite a bit but I have found that if you just run the juicer without an orange in it you will clear much of the build up. Overall I am very happy and I use this daily.
Summary: Okay, do NOT buy a refurbished one!! Just go ahead and buy a new one. I received mine and it did not work upon arrival! I must say Amazon quickly refunded my money and so I ordered another one thinking surely it must be a fluke. Well, it arrived broken also!! Who checks these out? The motor hummed, but did nothing! So, I returned it again and went ahead and ordered a brand new one this time! I do love it, but I am worried about it being a quality product at this price.
