Summary: When we first received the Waring PCJ218 Citrus Juicer, my wife was very impressed with it. When juicing the fruit (lemons and oranges), it made a high pitched whine that was somewhat annoying, but it did a good job juicing the fruit. There was no indication of overheating the motor, even when juicing a bucket of fruit. However, three months later it died. The reamer still turns with no load on it, but as one attempts to juice a piece of fruit, the reamer stops turning.
Summary: First use it was making a screeching noise, thought this was normal. Noise continued and got progressively worse until it completely stopped working. Only used it 8 times. Can't believe it only has a one month warranty. Not impressed!!! Do not recommend this juicer!!
Summary: This is the noisiest home appliance we own, and it won't be here long. Holes in the strainer are too small so most of the juice is lost unless you enlarge the strainer slots. But the big problem is noise, and it should come with some form of hearing protection for anyone using it or in the same room. It is completely unacceptable.
Summary: We have fruit trees and needed a citrus juicer that could hold up to a lot of grapefruit and oranges. This juicer does the job. It took me a bit to figure out that with it running I could use a fork to gently move the pulp allowing the juice that it is holding to flow on through. Just have to be careful not to catch the tines in the strainer slots.
Beware teh LOUD Screeching sound that comes from this machine.

Summary: Just received my Juicer, opened it up and the first thing I noticed is that it is "stainless" only in color, the housing seems to be plastic. when I turned it on I was amazed at how loud it is, its louder than my blender at full speed. then I started to use it and it squeals at a high pitch, its a ghastly sound. I will be returning it.
Summary: The juicer actually works awesome. But unless you are deaf, I don't think you'll enjoy using it. I've worked in professional kitchens for ten years now, and this is the loudest, most annoying sound I think I've ever heard. Remember in "dumb and dumber" when he says "wanna hear the most annoying sound in the world?" That's instantly what I thought of.
Summary: Has great power but the gears are plastic or nylon, after 2 months of normal use the gears stripped out and the unit is dead. Maybe the commercial model has better guts but this juicer is garbage, I've had 20 dollars units last me 2 years, this one 2 months..
Summary: Works well, easy to clean. Sometimes I do a lot of citrus in a day, like a box full. When I put the half citrus on this I have to hold it down and squeeze it in on the sides, kind of roll it over to the side etc to get all the juice out but we get there.
Summary: I picked this citrus juicer based on 99 other reviews and am glad to write the hundredth one. If you are looking for a way to juice oranges and are willing to spend a little bit of money for a quality product then do not hesitate to buy this one. I have had this juicer for more than a year and everything about it exudes quality. In the past year I have regularly juiced oranges during the citrus season.
