So far, so good,
This review is from: Powerful 2.0L Whole Fruit Juicer/Smoothie maker - 800W Power! (Free Cleaning Brush)
I bought this to get rid of all the wind fall apples. Theres only so much apple crumble, pie, cake, sauce...etc that one family can eat! I spent two days making about 15 litres of apple juice, and will probably use this for other fruit and carrots
This is a lovely item, easy to use and assemble. Comes apart well for cleaning and seems robust. HOWEVER, I don't think it will stand up to abuse or over use. I roughly chopped and cored apples before hand as I didn't want bruised/damaged fruit in the juice. I found the juice was good fine quality and pulp relatively dry, you do get a fair amount of foam on top of the juice that I discarded
I did find myself having to rinse out the components and empty the pulp collector of the juicer afer every jug full. Which I didn't really have a problem with because of the ease of dismantling and rinsing. If you don't do this and you are using very pulpy/stringy fruit, I can see there would be the potential for over heating - you need to keep an eye out for signs that the blades have bunged up and stopped slicing or the sieve is blocked. The blades in the juicer are very fine as is the sieve, so by the time you have made a jug of juice these components will need cleaning to avoid over heating.
This is a juicer and not a food processor, so if you want something that just micro minces fruit to a pulp so that you can drink it then this is not the item for you. If you want a fine juice with no bits in it, then this item is great for those purposes, but you do need to observe sensible practice and good hygeine and rinse after use, otherwise you will have issues with it.
One last point - make sure the side clips have 'clicked' into place audibly or the juicer won't work!
