*It's easy to take apart and wash, and the relevant parts are even dishwasher safe.
*The glasses are very nice (if a bit thin), stackable, and bigger than I expected. They're the highlight of the product, actually. (Update: Both glasses spontaneously broke within months. They weren't dropped or otherwise subjected to any trauma that I know of. One developed a mysterious hole near the bottom, and the other suddenly developed a large, leaking crack near the bottom.)
*The juicer cone is not very aggressively constructed. I found that I really had to push hard and wiggle the orange around a lot to get it going.
*The juicer does not turn very quickly. I think using a manual juicer would be just as quick.
*Though this juicer is 100 watts, it bogs down and strains if you push very hard (which it cautions you to not do).
*The "cyclone function" does not come anywhere near to extracting "all" the juice from the pulp, as they claim. It's only a little faster than the regular juicing speed, and it did pull out a bit more juice, but I was still left with a heap of sopping pulp in the strainer.
*Because the performance of this juicer is really not much better than a manual juicer, it might seem that it would be useful only for someone who would be juicing a lot of fruit at one time. But, per the instructions, you can only use this juicer for three minutes before you should stop and let it cool down to "room temperature." (I never sensed that it was getting hot, so how could I tell when it had cooled?) Given how long it takes to juice a single orange, you might be able to juice two oranges (one glassful) at the most before having to wait.Read more ›
This citrus juicer is exactly like the small glass hand citrus juicers that my mother and grandmother used in the 50's and 60's, except with a motor! I personally love simple basic kitchen things and this juicer is very simple. The quiet motor is completely sealed in the base. The top has the old style wedge shaped form that the halved orange, grapefruit, lemon or lime sit on. All you do is hold down the fruit half on the wedged form, and it spins the juice out, just as if you were twisting it on the old fashioned hand held types. There is also a dome cover that you can place on top of the citrus fruit half, and when you push down on the dome, the motor spins the rest of the juice out of the pulp at a higher speed. Pushing on the fruit half or the dome is actually the on/off switch. If my mother or grandmother had this in the fifties and sixties they would call it a wrist saver!
I use this juicer more on a weekly basis, than daily. If oranges are on sale, I'll make a full pitcher of orange juice. If lemons are on sale, it's lemonade. Grapefruit juice is delicious as well- not to mention a great calorie burner for anyone wanting to keep their weight down. This juicer is limited to citrus fruit only- it's not a juice extractor which juices everything. We had a juice extractor years ago, and they are very expensive and harder to clean than this simple basic juicer. The few parts are easily removed and cleaned in your dishwasher or by hand. There are no sharp parts to clean.Read more ›
I went about looking for a replacement and it seemed as if Braun was no longer a good option for me. After agonizing over which juicer to buy (and I truly did agonize over the decision), I finally settled upon the Bodum Bistro 2 speed electric juicer.
As it turns out, I made the right decision.
I read another review that stated something along the lines of, "Although this juicer has a 100w motor, it's not really that powerful and I can stop it from by turning by pushing too hard." Well, while some people *could* stop the motor if they really tried, for the most part, that's not going to happen. I have not stopped the motor, or even slowed it, by using it as designed. Sure, if I grab the spindle, I can stop it while slightly hurting my fingers. But the point is that it's a 100 watt motor, which *is* among the most powerful in class. I can't imagine that most could stop or slow it under normal use. So with all due respect to the other reviewers, I think that their remarks are misleading and don't let those comments worry you.
This juicer juices oranges and limes (I also use it for fresh margaritas) very fast. The juicing cone's shape is less sloped and more pointy than my Braun's and it juices quicker and better.
It also has a stainless steel strainer (or whatever you call it). Seems quite durable and looks a lot nicer than plastic.
The 2nd speed does indeed extract extra juice from the separated pulp.Read more ›
