Summary: The brand is reliable, the price is right and it works okay, but still I feel like I made a mistake. Maybe it's because it's difficult to always get the pulp setting (light/med/heavy) the way I want it, and occasionally the juicer will slip and the juice spill on the counter instead of the glass (provided by user). Juicing is not automatic, and perhaps I press down too hard on the fruit.

Summary: if u juice a lot... u might want to invest in a manual heavy duty/commercial press... with this.. u have to constantly clean it each time u juice... and if you juice more than 2-3 oranges at a time u need to clean it so that it will drain properly... for $30... which in my opinion is quite high.. esp. if you use i it a few times a day.... it gets laborious and tedious having to clean it that much and after a a month or two of usage the motor starts going to sh*t..
Summary: It works as it should. It's a good citrus juicer however the parts are of poor quality. I used it for less than 6 months and some plastic piece broke off from where the spout connects to the base. It would be nice if the spout and base were one solid piece.I had to reorder the part from cuisinart which cost 14 with shipping and tax. If you are going to juice more than say 6 lemons, plan on cleaning the ream as it will over flow with the pulp/seeds.
Summary: I purchased a full carton of lemons (about 200 lemons) for a recent photo project. Rather than let them to go waste afterward, I purchased one of these juicers. During the length of time it took for a NFL game, I sat and watched the game and processed the case of lemons through the juicer. I ended up with about 6 quarts of fresh juice with the right amount of pulp for perfect lemonade, portioned it into useable quantities, and put it in the freezer.
Summary: well, I ordered it in February and used it every day without problem. But yesterday it started on its' own when no one was even in the kitchen! And just like another reviewer described, if it's plugged in, it won't shut off/stop running. Really useless now. Even if all the lemons are halved and ready to go, it splatters all over in the moments I take one lemon off and put another on. So 5 stars for when it worked and 1 star for lasting only 7 months.
Excerpt: For the price, a great citrus juicer. It can juice anything from a small citrus fruit to a large grapefruit. Pros of this juicer are; the custom pulp control setting, auto-reverse reamer, and the final spin which really gets all the juice out of the pulp left behind. The cons are; the pulp tin fills up incredibly fast, it does not come with a pitcher or glass. It is dishwasher safe but I always hand wash and it comes clean fairly easily.
Excerpt: I don't drink much juice, but when I do I like it to be fresh so I purchased the Cuisinart CC3-500 Pulp Control Citrus Juicer. This juicer is very simple to use. I mainly use this juicer to make orange juice. I set the juicer for low pulp and place the orange on the reamer. It automatically starts moving once I press down. The juice instantly starts dispensing from the sprout.
Summary: I have a large commercial juicer that I use for high volume from the fruit trees. I bought this for the times I need fresh juice in small quantities for a recipe or just a glass at a time. It's only been a year and it no longer spins. The motor got loud and then it died. Whether it's the bearings or the motor itself just burning out, it should be expected to last more than a year. I do not recommend.
Summary: I use my juicer 7 mornings a week to make 2 glasses of orange juice, approximately 8 fl. oz. each. I use between 3 and 5 oranges. The reason why I got this juicer is because I used to own the Tribest CS-1000 Citristar Citrus Juicer, and it was really difficult to keep clean with a lot of nooks and crannies. I even bought little brushes to get in there in detail. Too time consuming. I wanted something a bit easier to clean.
