Let's address the Elephant in the room first...
If your suction is failing. clean your counter top! Make sure all surfaces are dry. And, make sure the bottom of the juicer is free from debris, food chunks, pieces, etc...
In my experience, after using this now for about just over two weeks, every single day, for every juice, I believe that people complaining about the suction either were starting with a dirty counter, a wet counter, or a wet bottom of their juicer or else they decided that they had to be Arnold Schwarzenegger and power through their produce!!
I know someone who takes this juicer on road trips, on the airplane, to weekend getaways, and even has stuck it to her car!! And since it is lightweight and manual, taking it international is a breeze without needing to get an electrical adapter.
On to juicing....
The best advice I have is simply "less is more."
Half a chute or a quarter of the chute full of produce can get munched up in just a few seconds vs filling the entire chute full and then having to force everything down.
I slice the apples into quarters and do 1 quarter at a time. I did 6 pounds of watermelon (rind and all) but I did them each slice by slice. During that entire process it did not come off the counter one time. For greens I do one or half a head at a time, sure. I juice one stalk of purple kale at a time. I stick carrots in with the small end down and proceed to crank away.
If you get physical with it, and force it, it can pop off.
I haven't turned on my electric juicer since this one arrived. From beets to carrots to purple kale to apples and spinach. This is now the only juicer I use.
I don't wake the baby during nap time!! My Breville Fountain is so loud that a sleeping baby in the living room would be woken up. Not now. Not with the manual juicer.
Clean up is a breeze...
I munch through an apple in less than two minutes (one quarter at a time) and I am able to clean the juicer in 3 to 5 minutes, depending on what I put in there.
Compared to my electric...(**Side note here** My electric helped me to lose a lot of weight, from 252 to 181! So, I do like it. However, had I known about this juicer two years ago, I would have gotten it. The price is right and the yield is better. I would have gotten more out of my fruits and vegetables.)
As I said, I love my Breville Fountain, don't get me wrong. But it is wasteful (compared to this one). Sure, it powers through an apple (a WHOLE apple, without needing cut) in seconds. Then, I have to take the wet pulp and have to either throw it out, find a use for it, run it through again or just accept that the pulp is wet. Or... I simply do an apple in this mean juicer and VIOLA! The pulp is very dry. It takes about 2 minutes, maybe 3 and the clean up time is fast. With the breville, even for one simple apple juice, it then needs to be taken apart, the screen washed, the pusher, the chute, the catcher, the side of the juicer, the pulp catcher washed out and or the bag it was caught in tied off and disgarded, and then the little spout, and the remnants around the lip of the juicer. All in all, and truth be said, if I grab 2 fuji apples and juice them in the manual one and juice them in the breville and then clean up both completely, the manual one produces more juice and is completely cleaned up and done before the breville.
Use your noggin...
I hope you enjoy this as much as I do. As I said, I apply the "less is more" philosophy. When I first got it I filled the chute full, and the produce got stuck. Instead of getting upset. I experimented and quickly learned that one or two pieces at a time being pushed down is faster and easier. This baby munches right through and produces a bunch. -- This is my experience.
I have juiced over 60 ounces at a time with this little juicer. I'm loving it! Everyone is different and each of us will find pros and cons. I look for the pros and they far outweigh any cons I found. And most of the cons, were quickly repairable / avoidable once I put my thinking cap on.
The Chef Star manual masticating juicer for around 20 bucks on Amazon is the best $20 I have spent juicing!! And to top it off, cleaning takes about 3 to 5 minutes!
What do you juice?
Several of us in juicing groups on Facebook have now purchased this juicer and started a group on that we call littlemeangreenjuicer We share tips, ask questions, post pictures, videos, and more. The group is completely devoted to sharing experiences and giving tips on and about this juicer. Feel free to swing by and and ask questions, share your stories, ideas, pictures, videos, etc... or to see all of ours.
Kids, adults and just about everyone can use this juicer!
The elephant has left the room... spend the few dollars and improve your overall health! It is much easier than dropping $150 to $400 for a juicer that you may or may not use more than a month. My 5 and 4 year olds love to crank the handle and make their own juice. It's a fun way to introduce healthy consumption to the kids.
Update June 2015 - this thing is great. The suction method of fastening it to the counter is actually very reliable. It hasn't gone flying across the counter yet despite applying some force to the crank during juicing (wheat grass in our case). It doesn't require a great deal of effort to get good results. We borrowed our friend's super expensive electric juicer. It cost many times more wasn't much faster, a bigger pain to clean, heavy, big and difficult to store. And being a huge nerd, I did a comparison. Weighing an equal amount of wheat grass and the resulting juice by weight and believe it or not, this little manual plastic guy outperformed and the juice wasn't warmed up like the electric unit did.
We went into this comparison test expecting to be swayed and convinced to bite the bullet to invest in an expensive electric juicer. Nope, we're sticking with this little guy. To be fair, it does require some effort. We do trade places cuz your arm gets a little tired after a few minutes but it's first world problems people. Live a little.
Go ahead and get one. We highly recommend it. We'll be juicing this weekend.
I HATE this thing... I went from a 2 star to a 1 star.
What a piece of garbage. Don't waste your money.
Little thing to share that works for me...
1) Place the grass horizontally in the hopper. Feeds through much neater than when it's just thrown in. No blade left behind!
2) Juice the pulp! The pulp is a little wet after the first run. Run the pulp through 2 more times you'll get a little bit more juice out of it.
I haven't had any issues with the suction cup. If I had to find a complaint it would be that there are so many individual parts to clean, but this is not an issue for me. Oh and at times there is a high pitched squeaking noise when the juicer is straining to turn.
