I was a little hesitant to purchase a refurbished juicer but love Cuisinart products, so I did. This juicer is a wonderful buy for the price! Clean up is unbelievably easy. Someone had given me several bags of oranges, and I juiced all of them in little time once this juicer arrived. Putting the juicer together and taking it apart for cleaning is extremely easy and only takes a few seconds. This is a wonderful product at a great price. You won't regret the purchase.
