5.0 out of 5 stars Well-designed Juicer, 11 Jan 2009
The Magimix Le Duo is a great centrifugal juicer. This is my second juicer, bought Christmas 2008. My previous one was okay but this one is better.

There are two versions of the "Le Duo". This one is cheaper (approx 25 cheaper), and the only difference is the more expensive one has a chrome base. Both versions have the same upper sections which are made of tough plastic and stainless steel, so the extra money merely pays for cosmetic appeal.

This juicer works slightly differently to my old one. The old one had a juice jug and a pulp collector. The pulp would come out somewhat damp retaining some of the juice which you were intending to extract. The juice jug would hold frothy juice.

The "Le Duo" works better. The pulp is collected inside on the surface of the centrifugal spinner. It stays there until you use the scraper arm to remove it straight into your bin. The pulp comes out drier, because it has been spun around more. It is more efficient (you get more juice per vegetable) than the typical centrifugal model. I noticed that there is less froth with this "Le Duo" compared to my previous juicer. (Froth = air introduced into the extracted juice, which isn't desirable.)

There are less parts to clean with this juicer than the typical competitor. The juice goes straight from the pouring spout into your drinking glass. There is no pulp collection jug. In all you have 4 juicer parts to clean (plus your drinking glass, and the scraper). It takes up less space in your kitchen than a typical alternative.

You can juice a variety of fruit and vegetables with this. For instance apples, pears, carrots, celery, cucumber, oranges, lemons, ginger and broccoli are all suitable.

Avoid things like banana, avocado, wheatgrass, spinach or leaves. This type of juicer wasn't designed for juicing them. (Avocado and banana are better handled in a smoothie maker).

One of the better centrifugal juicers available.
