This review is from: Cuisinart CJE-1000 1000-Watt 5-Speed Juice Extractor (Kitchen)
I just got this juicer yesterday,and tried it this morning. After reading some not so good reviews, I was impressed with this machine. I used carrots and apples to start. I tried to get the whole apple in the shoot, but it was to large. I don't know where all these juicer commercials are getting their produce, but mine were average size, and wouldn't fit. No problem. I cut them in half. To my supprise, one got stuck in the bottom of the shaft. I stopped the unit and removed the piece. I cut them in quarters and started again. It worked fine. I found the reason the half apple got stuck. The shaft has a pyramid V shape at the bottom to keep the feeder bar from spinning when the unit is on I guess. Not necessary in my opinion. This is a well built unit. Stainless Steel and black. The pulp was dry, although there was a substancial amount after 10 carrots and 3 apples. It made 3 cups of juice. The anti froth ring does what is supposed to. I like the adjustable knob for the juice spout. You can close it to keep the juice from dripping out. This is a quiet but powerful machine. When you push the on button, it kicks a little to the left, but after that it doesn't move like some reviewers have claimed. The 1000 watt motor and 5 speeds is great. Low RPM's for soft vegi's, and fast for carrots and apples beets etc. Cleaning is very easy, although there are a few places that are hard to dry. Under the lid mainly. I got this a Kohl's yesterday. It was half price at $99.00, but I had a 30% off coupon, and it was $69.00. Such a Deal! I am going to buy another one today for my daughter if I can find one for $69.00. Buy this juicer! You won't be disapointed.

Thanks for the post. I'm going to keep my eye on the sale ads a bit closer. I know Kohl's regularly sales appliances around holiday times and with a 30% coupon that'd make a heck of a deal even with some of the negative reviews that are on here. I'd much rather spend $70 on a juicer than 200+ especially if i am unsure how often i will use it.

If you like it so much why only 3 stars?

My original review was 5 stars, but after using it several times, I found that the pulp was a bit to wet and the juicer did not get all the juice. I only paid $69.00 .It sells for way more now. Would I buy it again? I don't think so. There are much better juicers for less money. Hope this helps.
