Not very good....
2 weeks ago
Summary: I bought the unit recently and have used it about 4 times. Pretty sure I will be returning it. The unit is easy to assemble and disassemble and runs very quiet. Cleaning isn't difficult but you will have to clean every piece of the unit which includes the lid, pusher, filter, receptacle, and pulp collector each time. If you clean it immediately after use it should be pretty easy, although, the filter takes some time.
Pros: good price easy to assemble and dissassemble
Summary: I've had my juicer for 3 years (2 in actual use) and I've never had any problems. True if you are juicing a lot of veggies at once, keep your eye on the waste receptacle as you will need to empty it as well as rinse the blade. Its just about caring for your appliances, sometime good things take a bit of work. DO: Clean your juicer immediately, it makes clean up sooo much easier.
Pros: great product producing good juice not too many parts to clean awesome recipe book
Cons: if you don't clean it immediately food sticks.
Summary: This is a great juicer. My wife and I purchased our first juicer about 7 years ago and broke it after about year because we over-tightened the pulveriser wheel. We purchased a second from COSTCO and have been using almost daily for the last 6 years. What a great design - they did their homework on this unit. I am an engineer and appreciate a good product in this day and age of throw away junk.
Summary: My original intent was to buy a blender to start making juice. However, I saw this product next to the blenders and the box sold me on how easy it would be to not have to peel or core the fruit and vegetables first. I was disappointed when I discovered the spout is only tall enough for short glasses, no chance of putting a large glass or thermos under it. Fruit actually shot up out of the feeder tube before I could cover it.
Summary: I bought this after I saw it at a friend's house. I purchased the SAME EXACT MODEL however, it turns out they changed the design from when my friend bought it. Before, you were given a tool to unscrew the blades easily and then you could pull out the strainer. Now the blades and strainer are combined into one piece and it's "locked" into place by only force.
Pros: looks nice
Cons: -taking apart parts to clean -clogs -not good for leafy veggies like kale kale gets wasted -juice can spill into motor casing
Summary: I did some digging around before I bought this juicer, and I'm very happy with my purchase around a month ago! I had a budget and, while a $300 masticating juicer would be nice, this centrifugal juicer does just fine. Some points to keep in mind: This juicer is best at hard fruits and many hard veggies. Oranges, apples, cucumbers, and carrots are some of my favorite things to juice so far. This juicer has a metal filter inside.
