I suppose it's okay. But it could (should) cost less.

I've been using this juicer for a few months now and it has served its purpose well. It has been used primarily for juicing oranges and grapefruit, and the CitiStar hasn't had any mechanical problems, thus far. The reamer consists of two parts: the lemon / lime insert which fits in the larger, outer piece. For a fifty dollar machine that's only made for juicing citrus, it would've been a nice surprise if the reamer was constructed of heavy-duty glass, but unfortunately they are both made of plastic. One of the main reasons that I chose this juicer is because of its sturdy, metal strainer, and it does a good job of keeping most of the pulp out of the juice. Also worth mentioning is that the juicer comes with a (plastic) dust cover to help keep it clean when it sits on the counter or inside the cabinet, and it's been noticeably effective. Another useful design feature is the juicer's wide base and rubber feet which keep it steady on the countertop while you're using it. However, the collection bowl's drain is tiny, obviously designed to keep pulp out of the juice, but it has a tendency to get clogged quickly -- which means you must stop what you're doing, take it apart and clear the pulp out of the way. About the warranty: Seeing how this juicer gives me an impression of lasting durability, I think it should have longer coverage. Tribest is well-known for their industry-leading warranties, and I cannot understand why this juicer is only covered for one year. Would I recommend the CitriStar? Yeah, I guess so. I would be more likely to strongly recommend the CitriStar if it cost less, especially when you consider what you're getting is actually a machine that is mostly made of plastic with very limited juicing capabilities.
