Summary: The juicer started well, unfortunately after approx 3 weeks the motor blew. We were making 2/3 juices a day during this period. When it worked it was great. Disappopinted. Unfortunately couldn't recommend due to limited life span.
Summary: Positives are that juicer is quick and looks smart enough to leave out on the counter top. Downsides are 1) that the the juice quality was poor - the juice wasn't as strong, looked quite pale in comparison to my previous juicer and also had the outer skin of the fruits / vegetables in the juice.
Summary: I have bought my first Philips HR1871/00 Avance Juicer on the 10th of January 2014. I used it for the first time the coming Sunday and it worked brilliantly. However, the next morning the machine suddenly smoked and stopped working. i had to return it to Argos and same thing happened to the next 3 juicers i had. Same thing happened today and I just decided to get my money back and return the machine. It's a waste of money.
Summary: A great product that I bought in a bid to be healthier. Easy to use with a handy jug that fits right onto spout. Takes whole fruits easily and even pineapple chunks with skin on! It makes a lot of juice and is simple to assemble and quick to clean which is a bonus! It is fairly big though so takes up a bit of room in the kitchen. All round, excellent!
Summary: I bought this product because it was recommended by Jason Vale (Juicemaster - who I think is great by the way). I started my 5 day juicing diet - and on day 3 my juicer started to stink and smoke filled my kitchen. I took the juicer back and got a new one. A few days later I was juicing an apple & some spinach and yet again smoke and an acrid smell filled my kitchen. I took it back and purchased a Heston Sage instead.
