Rockin Juicer dressed in Black!,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lloytron E5201BK 1.2 Litre Citrus Juicer (Kitchen & Home)
I only paid £12.90 for this product so wasnt expecting it to be up to much but just so long as it got me through a 10 day Master Cleanse where i had to juice 8 or 9 lemons a day i would be happy. It got me through the cleanse and is now whizzing through Oranges that its juicing for my breakfast like theres no tomorrow. Reading that back it sounds as if its doing all the work on its own but it is kinda like that .... you cut the fruit in half then gently press half of it down on top of the juicer and it just works. No strength or pressure needed it just does it.
Pressing down for 5 or 10 seconds then releasing the pressing down again for 5 or 10 seconds releases something in the motor and the juicer turns the other way, clockwise to anti clockwise, its fabulous!! The direction change is the reason you dont have to do any work because the juicer gets all the bits it missed the first time round just by changing direction. Every once in a while it doesnt change direction but im guessing that this is something to do with cogs not meeting at quite the right point - my quad does this sometimes and i have to rock it gently backwards and forwards a couple of times to click it into reverse - with the juicer just lifting to stop and pressing down again usually does the trick. I wouldnt even say this is a fault with the product because it was £12.90 for goodness sake!!
I also like the gadget on the tray that catches the pips and 'bits' that allows you to open the filter up to allow bits in the juice or close the gaps to stop the bits from falling in the juice. Gaps are too small to allow pips but as i really like 'bits' in my juice it is an added bonus for me. I did try it closed with Oranges for my son, who is now studying in Singapore for 9 months and who is sorely missed, and the only problem was that after one orange you had to get rid of some of the bits as it was clogging up the top - not really a problem and just goes to show its working as it should.
Cleaning is just a matter of running it under the tap its as easy as that!
I love my little black juicer - it rocks!!

After reading reviews here at Amazon I was thinking of purchasing the Philips HR2737/70.
But after looking at the specs, I decided on the Lloytron. It is on order. In the meantime, thanks for the tips Saxi :-)

Thanks for the tips Saxi, I'm just about to start a Master Cleanse and sounds like this ticks all the boxes... better hurry as there is only one left!
