It's really not too bad. It comes with a pretty good brush that you can use to scrub the metal components. It does have one problem area where the juice funnels into the cup and it's pretty difficult to clean this area. Dealing with vegetable and fruit juice I recommend if you get this product you clean it immediately after you use it. The high nutrient content of the juice can cause a buildup on the juicer if you do not do a good job of cleaning the juicer. However, I enjoy this product very much. This was the first and only jucier I have purchased so I am not really too experienced.
