Rated 1 out of 5Â by netqueen7 Piece of junk
I bought this juicer several months ago. Within the first couple of months the spout fell off the front. I tried putting it back on, and it worked for a while. Then the motor started making a funny noise. Then the spout flew off while I was juicing something and blew juice all over the kitchen. It is difficult to clean and started falling apart right after I got it.

I do not recommend the Bella 5-Speed Juice Extractor. I was highly disappointed. My first attempt at making juice with the Bella - horrible. Juice was very gritty and pulpy; I even had apple skin in the juice (that's the whole point of juicing, nothing but the juice). Hardly any of the byproduct went into the deposit container. Most of it was stuck in the top of the juicer and under and around the area with the blades. I cleaned it, and gave it a second chance. Same exact thing! I have seen a nice juicer in action, so I knew what it should look like when finished, what the juice should taste like when finished, and how easy the clean-up is supposed to be. This was far from that. So I cleaned it a third time and went to the store and returned it that same night. I now own that other juicer and am very happy with it.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by lorirc First time juicer
I have never juiced before. So it took me awhile to figure it out. I has quite a few parts, in my opinion. I tried several fruits, and they all were juiced well, "chopped" or whatever word I am supposed to use! The speeds were great, and helpful in telling me what fruit needed what speed. It really works well. My only issue was cleaning. It was hard to get some of the fruit out of certain spots. But not enough to keep me from buying it, this is a really nice juicer!
Rated 5 out of 5Â by kb27540 Easy to use and clean
I only have so much counterspace, so an appliance has to be worth that real estate! I have never used a juicer of any kind before, so I can't compare this to others, but I can say that I am satisified with this product. It was easy to assemble and use right away. I have been happy with all of the kinds of juice I have made so far; I have also been happy with the pulp (don't throw away the pulp -- great for quickbreads, etc.). I also like how easy it is to clean.
