This is by far the best juicer on the market and the only one that I know that also makes smoothies as well. The build quality is superior and it is easy to use. It is expensive even for everything it does, but when you see and feel the quality you can understand why. Breville always makes high quality products. I also think that an item of this price and quality should have at least a three year warranty, but this only has a one year warranty from the manufacturer.
