Summary: First, I'm not a healthy-eating juicer with a need for a machine that can do large batches, all day, every day. My needs are much-much less demanding than that, I need to be able to juice some fruit and/or veggies occasionally for recipe additions or just to have a little juice instead of tossing...
Save a little more money and buy the next level...

Summary: I bought this item about 3 years ago. I'm a very very casual user of it. Actually last year I didn't use it. The problem with this juicer is that when you juice carrots you'll see how many carrot pieces will end up in the waste container.
Summary: I bought this at Kmart to see if I liked juicing and how much effort it would be. Be aware, since this is so cheap it IS a beginners juicer. If you want a super high quality juicer you have to pay a lot more for that so don't be surprised when you have wet pulp and have to cut your carrots in half.
Summary: I got this juicer thinking it would be a good starter juicer,to see if it was something I wanted to spend my time doing. I did not expect it to produce dry pulp but I didn't realize that I was going to be spending SOOOO much time working to make a little juice and a ton of wet pulp.
Summary: This massterpiece sounds like a leaf blower in the kitchen and started to stop after only a few gallons of carrot juice. I literally have to slap it to get it to work again. Disappointing for the money.
Summary: Although I didn't buy this from Amazon - a friend gave it to me when she got a better juicer - I've used enough to let everyone know that this isn't a great choice. It juices quickly and is fairly easy to clean, but it doesn't extract as much juice as it should.
Summary: First- I can't eat fruit, so I'm only talking about juicing vegetables. The second qualifier- I am comparing this to my old HB Health Smart juicer that I used for 6 yrs before the motor wore out. This was purchased on 12/7. It is 12/31 AND THE MOTOR IS WORN OUT!
Summary: The juicer is okay for every day use. I have a lot of lefovers from carrots that did not turn into juice. So I make carrot cakes out of them, FYI. The best thing about it is that is gets assembled pretty easily; it takes a little effort, however, to get the grinding piece off.
Summary: I brought this on my self. I knew I shouldn't have bought this juicer, but the price was good and I was curious about how it would work (since no one on any of the sites I went on rated this), plus I am a first time juicer.
