Summary: Received this as a gift a few years ago, something I really needed. It is an absolute piece of junk. Applying even moderate pressure on the spindle causes it to stop rotating. The top tray which catches the pulp is a poor fit on top of the juice container and it regularly falls into the container. The container is thin plastic and it expands outward allowing the top tray to collapse. This results in all of the pulp falling into the juice.
Summary: As the instructions say, if you have to run this juicer for more than one minute at a time, do it in 15-second bursts. It's a cheap machine, but if all you want to do is make a couple of glasses of o.j. in the morning, this is perfect. I like being able to regulate the amount of pulp, and clean-up is a breeze.
Summary: I love this little juicer! It has 2 center pieces for larger or smaller oranges. And, it also has the ability to control the amount of pulp desired in your juice. The resevoir holds ample jucie. Works like a charm and has for more than a year. I would definately recommend this jucier and do not know why it hasn't gotten better reviews.
Summary: I was given this as a gift by a friend who knows I squeeze my own lime juice and was looking for an electric juicer. It's been noisy, but effective. Failed today with both a flash and a pop after beginning the second lime. I'd be surprised if it handled more than 50 limes in its life. When I finish this review, I'm ordering a juicer attachment for my Kitchen Aid mixer.
Summary: This product isn't very sturdy. It also doesn't work well on larger citrus fruits. Mine literally broke into pieces when I waas trying to remove the piitcher from the base after very few uses. Not impressive at all.
Summary: "LOUD, INEFFICIENT, AND FRAGILE are the only ways to describe this machine. This is by far the worst product I have purchased. I thought Amazon stocked "quality" merchandise. Not this piece of junk. I have owned it for a few months, only used it a handful of times and the handle snapped right off the unit while trying to assemble it. It probably cost Delonghi all of $1.35 to make this entire product. They probably spent more on the packaging of the machine.
