I've been wanting a juicer for a while but everyone always said it was a beast to clean and so much work involved. After reading tons of reviews, I finally decided to go with the Breville Cold Fountain and it was well worth the money. So simple to use and clean up is a breeze. Definitely nothing like what I've heard abojt juicers. The trick is to clean the juicer as soon as you're done juicing and to use the included brush on the mesh filter!
