It is a quick and powerful juicer but it spits out a lot of fruit and vegetables chunks that are not juiced. The pulp also contains a lot of liquid, so one has to rerun the food chunks and pulp through the machine again to get close to the maximum amount of possible juice out. The reason why I wouldn't recommend this product to a friend is because there are better juicers out there that extract more juice the first time around. I was disappointed with the juicer because it didn't do its job as well as I thought it would for such an expensive juicer.
this is my third juicer, each on is better then the next! the first ones motor was slow and noisy; it took a long time to get my juice and the pulp was very wet. the second one i was really happy with, "juiceman", had it for close to 20 years, but it burned out a couple months back :( but my joy is ten fold now because as good as the last one was, this was is totally AMAZING! the power and speed are 100 times as fast as my last one, it cleans up sooo much faster, it almost rinses itself off. the screen is easy to clean with a nylon brush on the outside first then the inside. there were a few little chunks of carrot that didn't get juiced, but not that much, i just took them out and fed them to the dog and the little bit of pulp went to the worms so all are happy. i made 4 glasses of juice in about one minute. had all the carrots, celery, and apple all washed and ready to toss in. thank you overstock! the storm in the east cost slowed the delivery, was expecting it on valentines day but it came on the 17th. that's ok, "hungers the best sauce" as my husband says, he's right! i think anyone who wants to juice should start with this one. it is worth every penny! thanks dad for this wonderful gift!
Love this juicer. I have had other high end juicers in the past but this one is far better than any I've used before. I love how fast it juices hard veggies and the wide opening allows larger vegetable pieces. The only drawback is that you don't get a lot of juice out of the leafy greens. You get some but I know other juicers can give more. Overall it's an excellent juicer. Easy, quick and quick clean up.
I will admit that I was downgrading with the unit, so my expectations are probably a bit off from someone that is buying a juicer for the first time. I grew up with a mother that loved juicing back in the 70s and invested in a Norwalk, the Cadillac of juicers. That unit is a 2 part process that first created the pulp which is placed into a muslin bag, and then is placed onto a hydrolic press which then extracts the just without any impurities, foam or "chunks". I have inherited this machine, and it is equivalent to what you get at a juice bar. That said cleaning that machine is a beast, and super time consuming so not great for daily juicing. I ordered this Breville because the reviews seemed solid, and I figured worst case scenario, I could press the pulp myself if needed... Which unfortunately, is exactly what happened. This juicer is very high powered, and rips thru veggies in no time flat. Cleaning this machine is a dream, and is very easy to make large quantities.. all of these are pros. The Cons are that the juice is somewhat thicker than what would would get from a retailer. Also, the juice has a foamy consistency, which I hate, so I needed to go the extra step of using a micro strainer to get rid of all of that thick foamy particles left in the juice. .. it was also messy, and made the process twice as long as needed. Again, this is a preference issue, so if you don't mid a thicker product, you would not be bothered by this. Out of curiosity, I took the pulp from my last juicing session, and placed it on the press of my Norwalk, and I ended up getting a full 18 oz of excess juice.. that is a ton! After needing to strain and repress my pulp, the overall time it took to get the desired consistency of juice I wanted ended up making me realize i should have just used the better unit in the first place. In the end, I would say if you are new to juicing, want something fast and easy, and don't care about wasting some of your produce.. this is the machine for you. If you are buying all organic product, and don't mind making larger batches that you can store a few days at a time.. I would recommend buying a masticating machine instead.
