Rated 1 out of 5Â by Carfer Poor quality and functionality
I bought the newer version of this juicer, the HEJ200 (Image 1) and I'm really disappointed with my purchase. This appliance presents a lot of design errors, which lead to serious problems while being used. To begin with, the motor is extremely noisy and it can easily wake up everyone at home. Second of all, the jar spout (Image 2), which in the box is referred as "easy-pour spout" is everything but easy... it has the worst shape I've ever seen.... when being leaned , instead of pouring the liquid into a glass (Image 3), it starts dripping down the wall and you lose all of it. Also the strainner has some serious design problems... it might help to control the pulp, but when you're going to wash it, it's almost impossible to take it out by yourself... you might need four hands in order to release it (image 4). And now the built-in cord wrap, that's the best place you could have thought to store dirtiness: the compartiment has a flange on the edge that makes it impossible to clean Image 5). Finally, the jar material is extremely delicate, almost as an egg shell, and with just two months it's already broken on one end (Image 6).
I've always purchased this brand for this specific type of appliance, but honestly, your new designs seem to be much worse than the old ones... instead of improving them, you are making them more complicated and less functional.
