Philips understands the common barriers busy homemakers face when juicing at home - a lack of time, space and nutritional guidance, not to mention extensive washing up. Boasting all the time-saving and innovative features you need to make home juicing as healthy, tasty and convenient as possible, Philips has designed the new Micro Juicer as the perfect solution for every day juicing from fresh fruit, seeds and vegetables. You can now squeeze up to 90% of the whole fruit into your glass, for a juice full of vitamins and other vital nutrients (Based on internal tests on 1000g each of grapes, apples, blackberries, strawberries, tomatoes, watermelons, oranges and pomegranates).

Juicers produce different quality juices. There are really 2 key areas to judge a juicer on it's juice quality.
#1 Some juicers produce a higher amount of juice per food item. You can tell by the drier pulp that is extracted.
#2 Some juicers produce frothier juice and warmer temperature juice - 2 signs of lower quality because the air and heat are evidence of the oxidization of nutrients. A faster spinning juicer (centrifugal) will often produce more heat and froth, which is why the masticating style juicer (slower, chewing action) creates better quality juice.
In terms of these 2 key areas, this Philips does an alright job producing dry pulp and an excellent job with low froth and low temperature juice. The slow masticating action is excellent and on par with my other masticating juicers (Omega and Champion) and superior to my $40 Black and Decker (centrifugal style) in terms of low temperature and low froth. However in terms of pulp dryness, the Philips does product noticably wetter pulp than my Omega and Champion... but not as wet as my Black and Decker. To get more descriptive, if I run the Champion or Omega pulp through the juicer a 2nd time, the extra juice extracted is minimal and not worth the work in most cases. I like to run the pulp of the Philips through the juicer 1 time to get extra juice out of it. Running it a 2nd time and I get hardly any juice. One extra run of the pulp is sufficient. Now, on the Black and Decker, I run the pulp twice always and sometimes 3 times and still get juice out of it. The 4th time the juice isn't flowing any longer on my foods.
What is my final opinion of the Philips? First, this juicer has a much smaller footprint than my Omega and Champion juicers (less counter or shelf space). Yet it is taller, which usually doesn't matter at all in a kitchen. If you have a small kitchen this is a benefit - otherwise size doesn't really matter. Second, this juice is very easy to clean. The parts unhook quickly and there is no screen to brush. Cleaning the screen always takes the longest time of any part to perform (why I recommend the brush). For these 2 reasons, this is a great juicer.
The one area that this juicer can be improved is in the juicer department. Please don't misunderstand me, the juice quality is very good. This is a good juicer to own. But does it out perform the highest rated consumer juicers (Omega and Champion) - no. It's close behind them but not quite at the same level.
If you want the best quality juice, then go with Omega (not the Vertical Auger style - it is not good for leafy greens), Champion or Green Star (never tried it but people do like it). If you want cheap and easy, go with the $40 Black and Decker. It's an incredible deal - especially for someone curious about juicing. If you want quick, easy and small... and want very good juicer, then this Philips is a wise choice. If you want the very best that money can buy, the get the Norwalk Press.
You juicer can perform well for many years with proper care. First, always hand clean the juicer pieces. The heat in a dish washer can damage the plastic and cause it to warp and eventually crack. A warped part will create a loose seal and cause leaks, and misalignment which can render a juicer unusable unless the pieces are heated and reshaped. Also a dishwasher's strong detergent can discolor your juicer parts.
To wash the juicer I recommend using a bristle brush and warm water. A bristle brush works much better than a cloth when removing small bits of carrot or strands of kale.
An easy way to clean your juicer, especially when in a hurry, is to place the parts in a sink of water (or a plastic bucket or dish washing tub) immediately after juicing. Then when you have time later in the day to brush clean the parts the food particles are already soft and loosened, making it easy to brush the juicer parts clean. If you let the juicer parts sit all day with the food bits still in place, the bits will dry and stick to the juicer parts - requiring hotter water and more brushing to break them free. Think of it like soaking a pan - same logic. I do not recommend using hot water to soak the parts because of the risk of damage. A little soap and the brush will take care of the cleaning.
-The juicer is easy to put together, although the first time it took a bit of studying the picture instructions.
-The juicer is easy to clean, literally takes less than 5 minutes to take apart and rinse.
-Easy to use, the auger takes down most ingredients with ease, meaning you can juice just about anything. (I still have not tried nuts).
-Sleek and modern, takes up very little space and looks great in the kitchen.
-Suboptimal yield, I can get at least 25% more juice out of the pulp. If you are concerned about getting the most of your produce, this is very time consuming.
-Small feeder tube, although this looks to be standard on these types of juices.
Here are the yields I got as a percentage of weight of the product. Pictures attached as well.
Carrots: 33% (and these were soaked in water for over 24 hours)
Green apples: 70%
Spinach: 47% with foam, 41% after discarding foam
