This Philips Juicer gives you all the juice without the fuss thanks to its patented micro-mesh filter and powerful 700 Watt motor. The extra-large feeding tube easily takes whole fruits and vegetables, so you don`t have to peel, core, de-seed or chop first anymore. The versatile motor with two speeds can handle hard fruit as easily as soft fruit, and because the pulp container is so large, you can make more juice in one go.
Patented micro-mesh filter
The patented micro-mesh filter squeezes out every last drop of juice--just two apples make a full glass of fresh juice.
Extra-large feeding tube
Thanks to the extra-large feeding tube, you don't need to de-seed, core, chop or peel most fruits first. The juicer easily takes whole apples or carrots, for instance.
700 Watt motor with two speeds
The smooth, versatile 700 Watt motor has two speeds so you can select the ideal speed for juicing hard or soft fruit.
The Philips Juicer has dishwasher-safe parts. You can either rinse all of the removable parts under the tap or put them in the dishwasher.
Made from anodised aluminium
The Philips Juicer is made from anodised aluminium, a stylish finish that won't mark or stain and which will keep its looks over time.
2 litre pulp container
You can make more juice in one go thanks to the 2 litre pulp container.
1.5 litre juice jug
The stylish 1.5 litre juice jug comes with a detachable foam separator for clear or cloudy juice.
Please note that although the Philips juicers are very robust and built to last, it is advised that you allow the motor to cool down between juicing sessions as this prolongs the life of the motor. There is also no brush with this model.

Top Customer Reviews
In the end, I decided to plump for thiss Philips machine, as it had quite a few good reviews, and it looked good (my thinking being that even if it wasn't great it might look good on the work top!).
So I was delighted when I got it for many reasons:
1. It makes great juice (and rather the jug supplied allows for a generous amount of juice). It makes very light work of apples, oranges, strawberries, grapefruit, carrots etc. It is surprising how much juice you get out of one apple. When I was researching, I wondered how much preperation was required... With this model, the chute is big enough for whole apples and oranges, but they recommend that you peel the oranges first (apparently the skin is very bitter), but other non-citrus fruits need no preparation whatsoever.
2. It isn't as loud as a jet engine (it's actually only as loud as my kettle - at the most).
3. It is farily compact - It only takes as much room as the kettle (maybe a little bit more), but I have a tiny kitchen, and it has fitted in no problem.
4. It's dead easy to clean and doesn't require a PhD to put it back together. It is very simple to put together, and the supplied brush for the metal thingy that mashes up the fruit is very handy indeed.
5. It gets every drop of moisture out of the fruit leaving only dry pulp in the pulp container. I had read in other reviews that it doesn't get every drop of juice, but my one certainly seems to.

The package includes a good recipe book by Jason Vale (who recommends this machine) and extensive instructions from Philips, which also makes suggestions for recipes. Once assembled the juicer looks good, but its main feature is the simplicity of the design. It breaks down into 4 large parts which can be easily rinsed under a tap, to clean off the pulp of the fruit. In the past, juicers have been very difficult to clean; but this one is very easy indeed.
Once assembled, it is simplicity itself to use - you just push the fruit down the large feeding tube at the top. Instructions say you can put in whole apples - this works, but is quite slow. I found that if you chopped them in half, it's much quicker and easier. Generally it works better if you chop things into pieces - but even allowing for this, the whole process is just a few minutes and you have fresh juice.
In place the unit tilts to one side, which is where you place the jug provided, to hold the juice. This is a nice, clear plastic design with an insert that allows you pour the juice into glasses without taking the foam from the top. Overall, the system worked very well and seems to produce excellent results - very pleasant with some ice, on hot summer days.
Given that it's currently selling for half price on Amazon, this has to be a top recommendation for this kind of thing. It certainly looks very good and it works quickly and efficiently. But what really sells it, is how easy it is to clean. Having owned and given up on previous units that sat unused due to such difficulties; it is very pleasing to discover something that has overcome all those problems, to make quick and easy juicing.
Its well made and the design is fit for purpose. What's good about the design is that it's easy to use and assembly / disassembly is very easy. Even without the manual. It's like doing a jig saw with only 10 pieces - quick and easy.
Before you buy it though you will need to take a step back and work out if you really need it. For most people a blender would be a better choice. For the liquid-y meals we make 90% of the time we use a blender and 10% juicer. Cleaning it out can also be a pain - a real pain - very messy and it takes a while.
You don't get much juice from fruit and vegetables, even the watery ones but this really does remove a maximum amount of liquid from your food. Very impressive indeed.
If you are going all organic and are not buying fruit and vegetables when they are on offer its going to cost quite a bit of money. If you have set aside a heathy budget for fruit and vegetable juices and are well aware of that, maybe you have had one before then I would highly recommend this.
Just made sure though that you take your time with the juicing and don't jam in the food fully and process it at full speed - it's not an industrial heavy duty machine. Rather than doing it continuously until the food has been processed it's best to do it in 3-4 second "bursts" as it puts less pressure on the unit and is likely to last much longer.
