After doing a fair bit of research I finally decided on this press juicer as I didn't want anything with a motor that mightn't last. We expected it to be heavy and it is. It is slightly taller than I expected and being a 5ft tall woman it's easier to use on the kitchen table rather than on the counter top and I've to use quite a bit of force to fully depress the lever when juicing. It presses oranges and grapefruit well. The pressing unit strains out the pips and the larger pieces of flesh from the fruit but if you also don't like the stringey bits or the pulp then you'll need to strain the juice further. I have used it almost every morning since I purchase it and while I'm a bit of a tight schedule what with getting to work I've still time to juice an orange and enjoy a small glass of freshly juiced orange juice (or of grapefruit/orange mix) each morning. Two things to note. The chrome cap that actually presses the fruit has quite a sharp edge to it so it is wise to be careful when extracting the lower part of the pressing unit for cleaning. Also, the paint that has been applied to the cast iron rubs off around some of the nuts and tiny black dots or shavings of it can be found all around it on the table and a little on the pressing unit itself. It is easy to clean - a rinse with warm water straight after use has been sufficient so far with mine. A good buy, reasonably easy to use, does what it's supposed to do but the larger one won't fit in a any standard press so you need to be prepared to leave it sitting out when not in use but it looks good so that's ok.
I've been through a few lever actions in the past year, and they generally haven't been much good. This product however is in a different class. The weak points with the majority of units on sale is the fact that they are too light weight and after a few months the thin gauge material is distorting. I know that this will not be the case with this unit. It is built like a battleship! The unit weighs in excess of 10kg and the cast iron construction will last. Parts that come into contact with the oranges are removable stainless steel, which allows them to be washed. This is a excellent product which i would recommend!
This is a fantastic piece of kit, it is heavy duty whilst still looking stylish and unlike my chrome one (which was the same price and completely flimsy) u do not have to out in any strong arm work to squish the oranges!! Now to the most important bit!!!! The customer service from this company is of the highest iv ever dealt with on amazon (or anywhere else for that matter!!!) I had a problem with Royal Mail and they responded so quickly i couldn't believe it!!! All to often you hear about shoddy customer service but this company deserve 10 gold stars!!!! Buy with confidence they go above and beyond!!!!!
I had this on my Wish List for ages. Then my wife said she'd like ideas for what I want for Christmas so I asked for the Winware Juice Extractor. It arrived extremely well packed, which is just as well as it weighs a lot. The juice extractor is very well designed and built and getting daily service providing freshly squeezed orange juice every morning with my breakfast. As other reviewers have mentioned, it's quite tall so won't fit under kitchen wall cabinets when in the open position to load and clear away oranges. However, it works so well I can live with that as it just needs sliding clear of the cupboards when juicing. If you are looking for a high quality juice extractor and you're reading this, you've found it - go buy one and look forward to lovely fresh orange juice whenever you want it.
This juicer is first class. Quality product. Great value. Impresses all my visitors, they love squeezing their own juice at breakfast time. Have used for oranges and pomegranates with excellent results. However, I must add, the customer service provided by Winware was outstanding. After I made a stupid mistake with my address (in Spain), they went above and beyond to ensure that my package was delivered swiftly and to the correct address! They kept in touch with me throughout. I have know idea if Winware is a small family business or a large faceless company, but I can tell you that in this day and age, to be treated so well was refreshing. I would recommend this product and this company without hesitation.
I was a little dubious when buying this item as I was undecided between the electric version and the manual one. Having done a little bit of research for a few days before buying, I found this to be not only what every review before mine said, but much more. Its built like a powerhouse, looks stylish, easy to use, simple to clean and hassle free, providing probably the tastiest orange juice I have ever tasted in my entire life. There's no bitter after taste and as much as I look for something negative to say about this item, I can't find one thing that I don't like about it. This is my first every review on any item I have every purchased online since I started buying online a good 7 or 8 years ago, and I just wanted anyone looking for the perfect orange juicer to feel confident knowing that I am probably one of the most critical people you could meet and yet I couldn't find anything to criticize about this item. Probably the most perfect purchase I've ever made for use in the kitchen. Oh and it also seems to have the wow factor as everyone who walks into the kitchen and sees this always asks about it when nothing else is every mentioned, and we have a very nice kitchen with lots of gadgets, but this seems to be the eye catcher above everything else. Perfect in every way
This heavy duty press does what it sets out to do, Im very satisfied with the performance. However the manufacturer in china seems to have no quallity control, the first one i got had white paint on the handle and the cup was missing. Winware was excellent in handling this and shipped a replacement. So great product if it is assembled correctly. No issues with black paint falling in the juice here though, even if I suspect that it might happen.
This juicer works so well and you can get a lot of juice from it. It's quite heavy and you need to put it on a surface where it won't move around when you put the leaver. it extracts the jouce with just one ut and is easy to clean
