Summary: When it worked it was great. It produced lots of juice and was very easy to clean. But after just 1 month it gave up and we've had to send it back. The same has happened to friends who bought this model and recommended it to us.
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: The juicer was great while it worked. Squeezed the majority of juice out quickly without oxidising the apple juice to a murky brown colour that you get from some juicers. Managed to clean it in about 5 minutes as well. All in all it seemed a good juicer. Unfortunately just like the Breville juicer I bought prior to this it broke within 3. Weeks. The motor just died on me.
Summary: I would love nothing more than to be gushing about the fabulousness of this juicer. Our relationship started so well. Juicing every day and loving every minute. Bright eyes and a bushy tail. Until it started bellowing smoke and fire however - and nearly burnt my kitchen down. As I type I am (again) on hold to the Philips Customer Care Department. I situation I have been in nearly every day since the 1st of July when the juicer decided to go boom.
Summary: Used exactly in accordance with instructions on average twice per week for 3 months. The motor burnt out after 3 months of use and there is no guarantee or option to return. A very expensive mistake.
Summary: I bought this juicer to follow the Jason Vale juicing programme. Twice now the juicer has cut out and blown my fuses. I have advised by the Customer Service team there may be a problem with fibrous items such as pineapple, beetroot and ginger. If this is the case, then, in my opinion, it is not fit for purpose. I am, however, waiting for a response from a Phillips engineer.
Summary: Wow! Just received this juicer and tried it out several times with different recipes and I'm really impressed. I'm lucky to own a Green Star masticating juicer which I bought about a year ago because it is the gold standard for extracting the most amount of high quality juice from fresh leafy greens but I was finding that I just didn't have the time or energy to use it every day. No point in having top quality juice just once in a while.
Excerpt: Пользовалась этой моделью с октября 2011 года, не могла нарадоваться. По прошествии 2,5 лет закончился а) гарантийный срок б) идеальный сок. То, что теперь льется из соковыжималки, назвать соком сложно. Скорее, это некая взвесь сильно измельченого продукта в соке. Цитрусовые соки еще более или менее терпимы - через пару минут всё это дело расслаивается, и под толстым слоем пены-пыли-жмыха долгожданный сок. Но это тоже жутко неприятно.
