I just bought this juicer and have only used it a few times. I spent well over six months reviewing different juicers before finally settling on this one. It was affordable and I liked the multi-purpose aspect of it. I was blown away the first time I made juice. I couldn't believe how easy it was. I was also expecting a machine that was noisy. I was pleasantly surprised at how quite this baby is. It is considerably quieter than my Blendtec.
I have not used it for anything other than making juice so I can't speak for it's other features. Once I learn more about how to use its other features, I will give them a try though.
I prep my food ahead of time so from start to finish, it took me less than 10 minutes to have a huge glass of juice (24 ounces). My favorite so far is what I call my liquid salad: spinach, celery, cilantro, tomatoes, lemon, wheatgrass, barley, sunflower sprouts, carrots. MMMMMMM!!! I could actually taste each and every ingredient, which was a surprise for me. I really did not expect to be able to taste each ingredient.
Clean-up is a breeze. A quick rinse to get rid of particles and then a once over in hot soapy water and you are done. I would highly recommend this juicer to anyone that is looking for something easy and versatile. I love it
