Summary: Poor quality motor. I used mine for the first time today. I was able to juice about 25 very small lemons with it taking breaks in between so I wouldn't burn out the motor. However that is exactly what happened. If your looking for a single use and throw away juicer then this is for you.
Summary: This doesn't seem like the sturdiest thing in the land, but it has worked to make orange and grapefruit juice. It is loud and doesn't always go in the direction I like. I've been using this (sporadically) for the last 1+ year and it seems to be losing its juice--excuse the pun. It is easy to clean, now that I know how to do it (the top 2 pieces snap apart) so you can get all of the pulp out.
Summary: I used it for about an year already and it still works. I agree it is build cheap and have trouble dealing with pressure. But really what do you expect for 16 bucks? It works for me, I make juice a few times in month. And I don't feel like investing a lot money in juicer.
Summary: I bought this item in 2010 and the glas broke after it fell from my hand. This item is fragile but the second time, I bought this again as this was much cheaper than the other products and overall this is a pretty good juicer. Make sure you handle the glass jar carefully.
