I am very happy with the juicer. It is easy to clean.The only issue I have is that some pieces of carrots or apples (I use it mostly for those) are not shredded completely. I like to make a salad to mix the juice with the shredded parts and I have to remove the bigger parts. We love the juice and salad, and our dogs love to eat the dry veggies left overs. For the price is well worth it.
