This is small enough when turned sideways to leave on the counter and it doesn't take up as much space as my old juicer. It also is more efficient, producing more juice, and more and drier pulp. What I love is the extra large feed spout, which means less slicing up fruit and vegitables before putting them into this.
You can spend a lot more than this on juicers, over twice as much, but the end result is the same. This gets plenty of juice out, and it's easy to clean, which is an important consideration, as some juicers can be difficult.
The pulp catcher snaps out easily, and rinses out cleanly. While this is dishwasher safe, I find I don't even need to put it in the dishwasher usually, since I just rince off the pulp catcher and blade and easily reassemble it in a couple of minutes.
This has two speeds but I always use the high speed. It's a super powerful machine, 900 watts, and juicing just takes a few seconds with this, unlike my old machine which was more like a wood chipper grinding away. This does it's job almost instantly. They've come a long way in juicing technology apparently. And this looks really nice too.
Do I recommend this juicer? You bet I do! You can spend a lot more, but why would you when you can get such a compact, attractive, easy to clean little powerhouse like this. And I like the brand Krups, which is known for high quality.
One recommendation to save time on clean-up is to use a plastic bag around chute where the discarded vegetable mush goes (instead of using the plastic receptacle) that you can toss instead of wash.
Let's talk counter space. We have none, so our juicer lives on a high shelf that makes it a bear to get down to use. For regular use, you definitely want countertop with easy access to the sink. If you plan to use this at least 3 times a week, it deserves a spot on the counter - see dimensions comparison below.
Comparison to Breville BJE510XL Juice Extractor which is in a similar class and currently about $50 more on Amazon new or $20 less remanufactured:
Both have good power and ability to pulverize hard and soft vegetables/fruit.
Both have similar number of parts to clean and reassemble each time.
Speed options. Krups has High and Low. Breville has multiple and allows you to adjust for soft to hard fruit/veg.
Assembly/disassembly . The Breville picks its parts break points more thoughtfully. For the Breville, the juice collector (round thing with spout which holds the filter basket with the sharp blade) is separated cleanly and easily from the drive shaft which reduces the risk of you accidently cutting your finger on the blade trying to wiggle it out. For the Krups, the spout of the juice collector is inserted through a hole in the base which requires more wiggle to disassemble (see parts photo).
Clean-up. Both are a pain as expected.Read more ›
Overall, good for an occasional juicer but not if you are going to be regularly juicing. You might as well get a slightly more expensive juicer and save on pounds of produce you buy.
Cleaning is painful. Too many parts.
But it has never given me any problems in functioning so far.
Recommended for occasional juicers who juice fruits more than vegetables.
Assembly of the juicer is a snap, with easy to read instructions, and in no time I was ready to start making fresh juice out of fruits and vegetables. I started with the staples, apple and orange juice. Both were easy to make and tasted fresh. Next up I am going to make tomato juice to add to my soups and stews and I am anxious to try beet juice.
This isn't a smoothie maker, so you can't really include anything that doesn't juice easily. Fruits like bananas and strawberries won't work so well; you need something with a lot of juice. Because the juice isn't pasteurized, you should drink it immediately, just like you'd eat a piece of fruit that you'd already bitten into.
The juicer is dishwasher safe except for the juice collector, so easy to clean - I also hand washed it when the dishwasher was full and it wasn't much of a trial. I clean it right after use, as recommended.
I would recommend this machine; it is easy to both use and clean. It's a fantastic luxury to have fresh varieties of juice at any time, and well worth the effort to get this little juicer running.

I returned this item. I was disappointed in the power, juice output was not the best, and design made clean up more intense than other brands. I was hopeful but disappointed.Published 11 months ago by Amazon Customer
