The Breville Juicer is heavy is but is made in a handsome stainless steel design which matches my other kitchen appliances. Comes with a brush to assist in cleaning the mesh basket component - which was smart move on Breville's part because I've had other juicers in the past where this brush would of come in real handy. Very easy to use & clean up. I almost always hand wash the components each time I use it but the parts are dishwasher safe. I try to juice on a daily basis so this machine makes it all the more possible -- highly recommended!
