Rated 5 out of 5Â by WooHDE Worth the money
I have been looking for an affordable juice extractor, and this thing works! Granted that I only owned it for about a week and used it for about two times (so I don't know how long this lasts), but it was great from the start. It has 5 speeds based on what kind of vegetable or fruit you want to put in. What is really great about this design is the filter disk to reduce foams (you don't really want to drink the foams).
The only two bad things I didn't like are that the size is very big. It cannot be conveniently put on the counter top and not expect it to take up a huge space. The other thing I didn't like is the metal mesh filter with the blade. Because it makes the pulp so fine, and the metal mesh filter is very fine too, it takes a few minutes to clean it, even with the brush provided.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by juicingmama Great juicer!
I have owned this juicer for three months now. I use this juicer several times a week. The juice comes out smooth without a lot of foam. This is a great machine for the money. This juicer is easy to clean as long as you do it right away. I would highly recommend this juicer. The large opening is perfect. My four year old now only wants "fresh" juice. This is a great way to sneak in extra veggies for the little ones. I should warn you though, once you start juicing with this machine, chances are you will become spoiled and never want store bought juice again.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by JRC1976 Easy to use, easy to clean
In my fight to get more fruits and veggies into my families diet, I purchased this juicer. SO easy to use! Apple juice for the kids with no added sugar or preservatives, and I can add a carrot or two and they will never know! sneaky, sneaky. Love the speed dial - lower speed for softer produce, and higher speed for higher produce. Comes apart easily to clean, and has included a cleaning brush to really clean the blades and filter basket. Juice is very smooth with not a lot of foam.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Anyarobyn Finally! I found a good juicer!
I've tried so many, many juicers over the last few years, and most of them frustrated me, or didn't work right. This one is great!
Make sure to adjust the spout to the biggest hole opening--other than that, everything is straightforward. The pusher works perfectly (unlike some other juicers I've had), the mesh basket works perfectly, as the pulp is very dry (meaning it got lots of juice out), and the pulp actually goes directly into the handled bucket for it (unlike some other juicers where it piles up on the inside of the top cover). It has lots of power and is a well-designed unit.
All juicers require a fair bit of cleanup--that's the nature of juicing. I find it helpful after rinsing off the parts, to take a paper towel and give a wipe under any rims, in case I missed an area.
Cuisinart--you impressed me!
