5.0 out of 5 stars To Juice or not to Juice..., 23 July 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
It's difficult to compare juicers, they all juice to some degree, some juice badly and others juice well, but are a chore to clean. I've had many juicers from Moulinex, Heston and also Philips. My current one was a Philips 1861. This one is the HR1863. This one is slightly less bulkier and part of the Viva collection. From what I can see this is the direct replacement for the HR1861 (as it is being discontinued).

The first thing you will notice it fits in with the slightly expensive range of juicers. It does juice very well, the pulp is dry and the juice extracted is quick. So, as a juicer it is great. Just as good as my existing Philips and it looks good as well. I generally juice carrots, celery, all types of fruits and the machine has handled them well. The pulp left behind is dry and you can tell the juicer has done it's job. I generally throw the pulp in the garden as I'm not one to throw it in the bin, I believe in letting it decompose naturally.

But, as a juicer I give it top marks, it does a great job. Now, the important bit, the cleaning. I must say that some thought has been put into cleaning the unit and this unit is actually easier to dismantle and clean than before. So, I just get rid of the pulp and quickly clean it and it only took a few minutes by hand or just rinse lightly and stick it in the dishwasher. All the parts are dishwasher safe and after I removed them from the dishwasher and re-assembled in a few seconds and I was done ready for the next juicing session. So, I am/was very impressed, this newer version is allot easier to clean and all the parts clean very well in the dishwasher. Another manufacturers, (which I wont mention) juicer the mesh never cleaned well in the dishwasher this one actually came out as new (albeit it is pretty new, but there was no pulp stuck to the mesh in anyway).

Now, assembling and disassembly is very easy and it makes my life allot easier if you juice 3-4 times day. So, easy cleaning was of vital importance to me and this unit is easily cleaned and I am juicing again with little fuss. Juicing is as good as other units, I guess they all now use the mesh, so the centrifugal force extracts allot of the juice just leaving the dry pulp behind.

Excellent unit and I do believe this will be the no.1 best seller for Philips, I really do. It's reasonably priced and very robust,. Oh, and it looks chic (If you could say that about a juicer). It really is that good.
