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: I have a Proctor Silex juice squeezer that is probably 30 years old - it is the best! But do you think I could find one like it??? everything today is so complicated. I finally found this juice squeezer and bought it for our friends in Florida for making Margaritas. it is the BEST>!! So, yes, great Margaritas and easy and uncomplicated juicing. NO NO NO, not for all that new fangled juicing - just nice lemon and lime juice instead of squeezing by hand.
Summary: I received this juicer as a gift. After only a few months, the handle broke off of the bowl. I contacted DeLonghi to buy a replacement part, and they wouldn't help me out without my providing a date of purchase. I told them to assume it was out of warranty and simply sell me a replacement bowl, but it wasn't until several months later that they finally informed me that this model was discontinued and they would not be able to sell me a replacement bowl.
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.
