Rated 2 out of 5Â by S&G Poor design
Several design flaws. Unless you are using a large pitcher, tall enough to be right under the juice,r be prepared for a big mess. This could have been solved by a) having a larger grid to contain the pulp, b) designing the body of the juice extractor in such a manner that the spout could be closer to a smaller pitcher or container. It seems to have been conceived for individuals with 3 hands: one to hold the fruit, one to hold a glass and one to hold the stand mixer so that it does no go backwards when you are pressing your citrus... A horizontal (instead of vertical) juicer would have been certainly a better, albeit more expensive, and less messy idea.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by Lisa juices I like this juicer, but there is a grease problem
I get bulk supplies of lemons and oranges and like to squeeze and freeze for use later. Once I'm set up, it goes along great and in no time my work is done :) The last couple of times I used it though, oil kept leaking and spraying from the gear shaft. I had to continually keep wiping it away to keep out of the juice.The grease leaks right where my juice is expelling. Can this be corrected? Would replacing the gear shaft fix the problem? When buying my KitchenAid mixer and additional parts, I felt I was investing in the best tools available. I would like to salvage the tool but do not want grease in my juices. Can you help? If we can resolve this issue, I would definitely recommend this accessory to friends and family.
Rated 1 out of 5Â by Jojo Worst juicer attachment
I returned to store after trying this attachment. Very awkward position to hold fruit for juice and juice runs down your hand . Half of juice wasted. I spoke with kitchenaid staff a while back that juice mechanism should be on top not sideways. Need to apply too much pressure to extract juice. Very tiring on hand to juice in this configuration. All juicers have ream on top not sideways. Kitchenaid needs to reconfigure this attachment!
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Kcdeb Does the job quickly!
When juicer arrived I couldn't wait to use it , we have a lemon tree with tons of lemons so this will come in handy. I halved 12 lemons and went to work , it juiced these lemons with ease very quickly , the basket caught the pulp it needed to be emptied after about 6 halves tray comes out easily so no problem.
