I actually really like this juicer

Summary: I actually really like this juicer. I have been reading all of the negative reviews and they all seem pretty dramatic. This is inexpensive as far as juicers go and you get what you pay for. That being said, it certainly does the job I need it to do. It's noisy and a little messy, but that is to be expected. It does not take me "three hands" to take apart and it is actually quite easy to clean, albeit a bit time consuming.
Summary: For a $30 juicer, I wasn't expecting much, but this juicer is a great bang for your buck! It's compact and fits right in my kitchen cabinets with no problem (about the size of a normal blender). You do have to cut your fruits or vegetables to fit through the feeder- you can't just go throwing whole apples in there- and leafy vegetables such as kale should be rolled up to be fed through.
Summary: I will not be buying any Hamilton Beach products, not only did I used the juicer twice but it was hard to take the lid off plus the lip to close the lid broke off easily, cheap plastic cover, not worth the money or the time invested in it.
Summary: I was worried at first about the low price on this juicer, but it is a great deal! I used it every day for almost a month and hasn't disappointed me at all. It is a pretty extensive clean up process, but I think all juicers are that way.
