Summary: We used this juicer everyday during the wintertime. It does a fantastic job with lemons and limes and seems to remove more juice from those fruits that I have been able to with any other method. It seems to do a good job with smaller oranges. Due to the smaller size of the reamer, it does not easily remove as much juice from larger oranges, grapefruit and other large citrus, but I am still pleased with this juicer.
Summary: The juicer was sent to me three weeks ago free of charge as a replacement of another (terrible) model by Krups that broke down and for which I spent several hours of sending it back and forth for repairs. At the end Krups kindly replaced it and I am naturally positively predisposed. Trying to be as objective as possible, I can say that I enjoy using this model, in particular the pressing lever, and the easiness of cleaning.
Summary: I like this unit. The only problem is that when processing a large number of oranges, the unit gets very hot! I have to let it cool down for about 2 hours before I can process another batch of ornages. I wish there was a more "robust" unit avaialble.
Summary: This seems to be the best citrus press ever. My wife has pain in her hands because of arthritis but she can juice lemons and grape fruit easily and without any pain. We had the Cuisinart Citrus Press before which we are going to return as that has caused my wife a lot of pain because of the manual pressing and maneuvering required to get the juice out. With Krups she doesn't have to do anything except press down on the handle and the krups does the rest.
Summary: I had tried a cheaper citrus juicer that lasted barely a month. I make a lot of fresh OJ, and often will juice several pounds of them at a time. This unit makes quick work of it and is relatively easy to clean. My only complaint is that it doesn't come with a stopper on the drain, so it required more cleaning of the bottom catch pan. I thought the stopper was just missing, but customer service said this model doesn't come with one.

Summary: Most citrus juicers have about 30 watts--the most I'd seen previously was 80, the lowest, 15-- and I had a plastic one that lasted almost three decades, so you may consider this KRUPS juicer to be precious overkill. I used the old one on rare occasions only, however, and tired of having to throw away much of our annual crop of "Improved Meyer" lemons from a dwarf tree (barely 3' x 3' at 20 years, but extraordinarily prolific).
