Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

Juice anything from an orange to a carrot in the sleek and powerful Magimix 14112 "Le Duo" Juice Extractor.

The Le Duo Juice Extractor is small and stylish enough to leave out on a work surface all the time (which should encourage you to get your daily dose of juice), and the powerful motor does a good job of juicing just about anything.

The juicer bowl fits over the base and locks firmly into place; there are no latches or arrows to remind you how to unlock it and it does lock very firmly so you need to push hard to get it off again. The spout on the side lets the juice pour straight into a jug or glass–-though it's not quite high enough to fit a pint glass under.

There are two attachments that fit on top of the juicer bowl: a press for citrus fruits and a juice extractor for any other kind of fruit. The citrus press has a large cone for grapefruit and a smaller cone for oranges; limes and lemons are a little too small to juice effectively but the press is strong enough to let you push down firmly on an orange to get all the juice out.

The juice extractor has a fairly narrow feed tube so you'll need to chop apples and pears into quarters. Push them down the feed tube and the juice pours out almost immediately; the grater shreds the fruit finely and centrifugal force pushes the pulp up against the fine mesh at the side, straining the juice into the bowl. It copes well with fibrous produce such as pineapple, melon or even ginger, and it filters out pips, stalks, skin and seeds. The weight of the motor stops the juicer moving around unless the basket gets really full, and the speed of the motor presses the juice out of the fruit, leaving you with fairly dry pulp to scoop out.

Cleaning is the tedious part with any juicer and you do need to scoop out the pulp before it dries on, but the spatula fits perfectly into the basket so you can get the worst out very quickly. All the removable parts are dishwasher safe if the pulp does get stuck on; even the spout comes out of the bowl if you need to clean it so you're ready to get juicing again quickly. ––Mary Branscombe

When my cheap juice extractor eventually broke after many years of constant use I decided to invest more money and purchase a Le Duo.
Within months hairline cracks had appeared over the motor housing, the main collecting bowl and the citrus press.
I am now on a second Le Duo (which is even worse) for it still has developed hairline cracks but in addition pours the extracted juice not only from the spout but from around the base of the bowl, which leaves a mess on the work surfaces.
The Le Duo looks good and does do a great job at extracting juice but in my opinion is not designed for regular use.

These juicers are pretty heavy geezers so if you are serious about juicing you need to keep the thing out on a worktop and accessible for everyday use or else it will gather dust in a kitchen cupboard. It works well, not too noisy (the baby doesn't mind it) and seems to give out a heap of juice leaving very dry residue in the basket which must be good if I'm to believe all the nutrition is in the juice not the fibre.
Speaking of the basket, if you are a greedy beast like me and like a good few glassfuls at each go (I'm talking a pint or more here depending on what you're juicing), you may need to empty the residue basket mid juicing as it can get pretty full round the edges and vibrate horribly across the worktop and leak a bit.
And don't chuck away the spatula to clean out the basket either as you'll need it handy to scrape out the leftovers to your compost heap before giving it a wash. You have to do this part pretty quick as if leftovers dry up then it's fairly ugly to clean all the nooks and crannies in the basket when the leftovers have cemented themselves to everything.
On the design side, it would be easier to dismantle if someone had the foresight to put some grooves or handholds onto the thing to get a good grip to pull it apart. This was a real down point initially as it was very stiff until used a bit. Now I've got my own technique but ask anyone else in the household to take it apart and they'd probably fail miserably. It is not at all intuitive and no guides or arrows are to be seen on the juicer itself to help out.
Yes, I could have bought a juicer that took a whole apple in one go without having to chop it into quarters to fit in the feed tube but this is not really much hardship.

Verified Purchase
This machine is virtually the only juicer not to be sourced in China these days. As a result, there is abundant plastic and a proven motor on this Burgundy made machine. Apparently after many years it has benefited from a minor redesign - which took away an existing feature (the on-off spout), so that this singular advance in product development leaves the machine dripping although less likely to require replacement parts. This might justify the increased warranty (12 years on the motor and 3 on the rest of the machine).
This centrifuagal juicer works differently from virtually all of its peers (rather like an accessory juicer on food processors). Most juicers hurl pith and skin over the top of a sloping filter into a basket. The Magimix keeps everything within its vertical overhanging walls. The positive result: less to clean and clearer thinner juice. The negative result is that although juice is longer lasting and doesn't seperate into layers of sewer-like sludge, the juice is less tasty and the machine becomes unstable if you try to juice too much at a time.
The sieve/grater is heavy and well made, although it really should have been redesigned to come apart for cleaning - as it is difficult to remove detritus from the overhanging assembly. The motor is reasonably quiet although not nearly as quiet as other induction rivals although it appears to have much torque and doesn't slow under load. Unfortunately, the filter/sieve assembly is not dynamically balanced - resulting in unecessary noise and uneveness even when empty. The feeder is primitively narrow and pathetically constricted for a machine at this price level, making it necessary to cut fruit etc into small segments. The absence of a feeder hod is utterly unforgivable in a machine at this price level.

I have this juicer and also the coolie attachment that sits in the sieve and forces soft fruit out through the sieve to make thick coolies. I love it find it easy to clean using the spatula and one of those long handled nylon bristled washing up brushes that Ikea sell. The whole top assembly goes in the dishwasher once a week and the stainless steel bottom wipes clean. The citrus press is ok, it works better than a hand press and means I don't have to have too machines or to skin the oranges before juicing, it gives orange juice with just the right amount of pulp. To get mroe from you press gently move the citrus press back and forth , it has give built into the design. This juicer suits a two person household, makes 2/3 very large glasses without needing emptying. If I'm juicing more I simply tip the pulp out into out into a bowl by the juicer, carry on and at the end put the lot in the bin. I'm a fan... Tip once fininshed tip juicer towards the glass, a little will be inside and place a small shot glass under the spout stopping drips landing on the work top
