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!
