Simple to operate and easy to clean, this mechanical device quickly and easily presses juice from all citrus fruits. It's made of enameled iron so it's heavy and stable and has suction feet for further insurance against sliding during use. A three-step process--lifting the handle, placing half a fruit on the conical strainer, pulling the lever--is all that's needed to produce a flow of juice into a container on the cup rest beneath the juicer's head. The strainer and basket are made of 18/10 stainless steel. Like the plastic cup rest and the cone that presses against the top of a fruit, the strainer and basket remove with a twist and are dishwasher-safe. The housing wipes clean with a damp cloth. Shapely and compact, the juicer measures 10 inches high, 8 inches wide (including the handle with its rubber grip), and 11 inches deep (including the handle). It carries a lifetime warranty against defects. --Fred Brack

I allowed myself to be seduced by this juicer's unique good looks and vendor propaganda regarding its sturdy cast-iron construction.

Well, I juiced exactly _3_ 3-inch diameter oranges. On the 4th orange, a critical cast-iron piece on one of the 2 right-hand hinges broke.

Other review comments concerning difficulty of cleanup are accurate. I would add that the metal strainer has edges that seemed quite sharp, making cleanup potentially dangerous.

I would not recommend this juicer under any circumstances.

Given the reviews posted earlier, I approached this machine with some trepidation, expecting difficult operation, inconvenient clean-up, and poor juice. I am pleased to say that none of this occurred. I have had my juicer for 2 weeks now, have pressed over 5lbs. of oranges, and enjoyed a gallon of gloriously fresh juice. It was easy to squeeze and easy to clean-up. However, consider the following points before puchasing.

1. You absolutely must have some upperbody strength to exert the required force and control the lever action. While my wife had a bit more difficulty, she was able to squeeze the oranges just fine. Also, operation may not be comfortable for left-handed individuals, as the lever is on the right-side of the machine and your free (left) hand must rest on the top of the unit to prevent excessive force from jolting the machine.

2. When rotating the lever, do so SLOWLY, as rapid motion can lead to spraying juice from the orange, loss of control of the unit, or both.

3. Do not use the machine for 1 glass of juice. You'll spend less time and effort using a simple plastic pulper over a glass.

4. Do not use this machine for 1 gallon of juice or more. If you're making that much juice, consider an industrial automatic model ($2000 and up), or just get used to that juice out of the carton.

5. Be sure to read the directions before using. It really helps to know how all four removable pieces attach/detach when cleaning up. Clean up is as simple as rinsing/wiping with a sponge and replacing into machine. Really takes no more than 15 seconds.

6. Leave the machine on your counter if possible. Your lower back will thank you.

7. Purchase good quality juicing oranges.

I bought one of these, and it was a total waste of my time and money. It looks cool, it looks sturdy, but trust me, it is horrible. Because of the way the handle is positioned, the thing tips over (or tries to) EVERY TIME YOU USE IT.

Save yourself some aggravation, and just buy the OrangeX mid-size commercial juicer. Same company, but a MUCH better product. I've had one for several months now, and LOVE it. Yes, it's bigger. Yes, it's more expensive. But it'll do what you want - juice your citrus quickly and easily, with super easy cleanup.

This juicer is not weight balanced. When you pull down the handel, the juicer wants to turn over. Causes a messy scean trying to make sure it does not flip over. Also did not get any instructions for using the juicer with it's many parts. Had to learn by trial and error, still not completly sure I am using it correctly.

I've had this little guy for over 5 years and still works great. Granted I only use it a couple of times/month but I'm starting to drink more juice. It is also a gorgeous piece of equipment.

I've read that some people tip it over....I don't see how. It's never happened to me. I guess if you pull very hard there is that possibility but that will happen with any appliance with a handle that isn't anchored to the counter top. I simply pull down on the handle slowly and it pulverizes the orange leaving nothing but juice. It's actually a very satisfying task for some reason...it just feels good.

This is a unit for making 1-4 glasses of juice. If you frequently need more juice than this you may want to get a heavier duty juicer or an electronic unit.

Clean up is nothing. Take the extraction cup out and attachment and give it a 10 second hot water rinse and you are done. The top plastic piece (covers the top of the fruit) easy turns and slides out. This and the round piece for placing your glass/cup to catch the juice may need to be rinsed every few uses. The edges are thin and somewhat sharp so handle with care.

My only knocks on this is that the unit is quite heavy so you are not going to like moving it around but that is part of makes it so cool. Also I find on occasion if you are handling oversized fruit the clearance between the extraction cup and the top of the unit which crushes the fruit is a little tight and you have to mess with a bit to place the fruit in there. Both of these are minor things.

I love mine

I was cautious based on the other reviews but decided to go ahead, and am very glad that I did. I find that this little guy fits perfectly into my routine; I squeeze predominently lemons and limes, and quickly discovered one little trick - cut off the thick and sometimes buldging ends that citrus fruit can develop; this allows the fruit to fit evenly within the press, and you will have no trouble pressing the arm down to express all the juice.
