It sucks....the life out of every fruit and veg!
Overall the product is outstanding for the job I bought it to do. It certainly compensates any regrets I have about parting with so much money for a juicer...oh, and the textured aluminium. I mentioned above that I only just decided to purchase the product because I let the market decide for me. Was there a demand for this particular item compared to other juicers. When it made its debut, I wanted to see if it maintained its price as a reflection of the quality, and if the product was selling, what stores/internet shops were selling it. Now I have it, and I'm satisfied with my choice.
What are the strengths?
I've been using the juicer/compressor everyday since I purchased the item (5 days ago). I only decided to buy the product now because I did have doubts. Those included 'will the juicer draw out everything from the fruits and veg I use? or will there my liquid residue left in the pulp which would be a waste unless I squeeze it out myself?', 'If I'm going to spend this much money on a juicer, then it had better perform like an athlete that never retires' and finally 'what if I purchase the item, and I find I'm not using it as often as I thought because the product didn't turn out to be what I thought it would?'
The answer to my first doubt : It turns the pulp into powder! I took a handful of the pulp, and it was a little moist, but the pulp crumbled out of my hands as I sprinkled it. So yes, the juicer sucks the life out of carrots, apples, oranges, berries, you name it. I make use of the pulp too! neighbours of mine feed the pulp to their pets. It makes great rabbit food, bird food,
What are the weaknesses?
It's a bit bulky- when in use, the juicer takes up a wee bit of surface space, but I do have a small kitchen.
Pulp won't fall - a lot of the times, the pulp gathers pretty quickly in the lid, and not into the pulp container. My solution is tapping the lid so the pulp falls.
I'm not to keen on the textured aluminium - This could just be my personal preference, but I'll wait and see what others say about it. to be sure to wipe the body from excess juice, one must wipe with the grain of the aluminium (horizontally) as opposed to the more natural circular motions, orelse it feels like you're sanding down your sponge/cloth.
Value for money (average) - despite the praises I have given the juicer, I have only been using it for 5 days. If it performs as I believe it will perform, then I may change this comment in the future. But until then, the price reflects the 'trendy' aluminium design just as much as the mechanics and performance of it. So if you're looking for something that jus
