Excerpt: The Jack Lalanne Power Juicer would make such a cool gift for anyone who enjoys freshly-squeezed juices, or anyone who is simply looking to reep the benefits of a healthy diet! This machine is just one of the coolest kitchen appliances out there, if you ask me!
Summary: Owned for only 4 months and motor burned out....called and was advised that the model had been discontinued so they could not replace the motor. Then they proceeded to try and sell me a replacement juicer. This is such a scam. There is really no warranty as they always say the model is discontinued - plus if they had a replacement part it would cost a fortune for shipping both ways (return defective and ship new equipment.) Do not purchase from this company.
Summary: I purchased this unit in 2011 and used it for a few months. It was OK, but put it away until recently. We may have used it for a few months, but not much more than that. I pulled it out last month during a juice fast. The motor stopped working, it was dead as a door nail. I called customer service and had to give all details about the time of order, dates, order numbers, etc. In the end, they ordered another unit (motor) for me which I paid another $29.99.
Summary: I have this juicer, it is such a mega hastle to clean and not worth the effort in the first place. I got rid of a previous juicer as I thought this one would be better, very wrong. It is huge as well.
Summary: It worked fine for my juicing needs for awhile, but one turn too tight of the blade and you have just broken the plastic threading from the motor and completely disabled the whole machine. It seems bizarre that the juicer would be all metal except for the pivotal piece that connects the motor and blade. I would fix it if they offered an upgrade to a metal part, but I'm not going to replace it with more plastic and wait for history to repeat.
Broken when I received it and have to pay $60 to replace it!

Summary: Today I purchased a whole bunch of fruits and veggies to juice and found that my newly arrived juicer is already cracked and doesn't work. The only way to get it fixed is to pay $60 through the warranty. I would never suggest buying this juicer.
Summary: I have had my juicer for over 10 yrs.I have used it a lot.I just now am looking for a new blade as I juice beets and ginger which is hard on any blade.I never have wet pulp, its always dry. I have r.a. and don't have a problem with cleaning it. I think people have a problem cause they don't read instructions.For instance, the basket has to be cleaned upside down and not from the inside, you can use a soapy dish rag or sponge or a soft brush.
