I've been looking for a manual juicer just like this one for years, but the prices have always been too high. This price is affordable for a brand new juicer. The packaging was good, double boxed. When I first took it out of the box, the lever was extremely hard to move up and down, so I put a little white machine grease on the shaft and now it works fine. It's also nice that the funnel and the part the fruit sits on is removable for easy washing. The whole unit is good and heavy metal so it stays put during operation. A very nice machine--I recommend it. Get it before it's sold out. Thanks again overstock.com!
I was slightly hesitant when buying this juicer because it wasn't a well know name brand. But I must say it works like a charm. I've used it just about everyday since I bought it. I originally bought it to juice pomegranates for making fresh smoothies in the morning. But since I've been drinking a glass of fresh squeezed orange juice nearly every day, buying a box of oranges from *****. So far I've juiced limes, lemons, oranges and pomegranates. Just a note, the extra large items don't get juiced as well. I aim for med/large size fruit. The couple real large items didn't get squeezed as well. So I'm sure their might be an issue with grapefruit. But from my research you get a juicer that does one or the other (large items or med/small items). This one fits me perfectly. Plus the price was great.
I would have given this item 5 stars but there is a fault in the design. The issue is the handle would not remain up-wright. If you are not careful it would come down on you and for a short person, you would definitely club by it on the head.
This is an awesome well made juicer. I could not have survived the pomegranate season without i! It is stable and has a long enough handle to give you leverage. The only thing I would change is to make the base a little taller so I could fit a bigger jar underneath..but they may have done that so it would be more stable. Great juicer!
This juicer is not as expensive as similar models, does a great job juicing most size oranges, but is a little awkward to clean. The removable pieces are quite easy to rinse and wash but I lay the entire thing down in my kitchen sink to scrub the inside of the piece that presses down on the orange skin--because it does need to be scrubbed each time it is used. I use my kitchen sprayer to rinse and then set the whole thing on a paper towel to air dry. I use this almost every day if I am able to buy oranges by the box at my local produce place.
This is a very good juicer, however, it tends to leave a lot of the orange oil in the juice giving it a slightly bitter taste. I guess that means it works *too* good! : ) We have a big Valencia orange tree in our back yard and every year we harvest between 150-200 lbs of oranges for juicing. So far this has been the only juice press that has stood up to the rigors of pressing 200 lbs of oranges!
We were looking for a juicer to use poolside, this one sounded perfect and it is! Very easy to use and clean.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. good quality, very sturdy!
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? description of product is spot on.
I'm a retied Chef and have used Juicers like this for many years with no complaints until now! I think this Juicer might be worth the price but am unable to give it a try because it came with NO Instruction booklet/owner's manual! My roommate has owned several restaurants all over the world and he looked it over and says: there are several parts missing and it is completely useless/worthless! =( I will be contacting customer service and sending it back for a complete refund!
