Uncomfortable in a kitchen
Likes tools that cut time, easy maintenance, simple to clean up.
I have tried the fast and slow grinding juicers, but this juicers is by far, the best.
It has two screen baskets. One for juice with minimum pulp and the second one with full pulp, or maybe closer to a sauce, because when juicing apples with the large holed basket, you get apple sauce. Either way, using the small holed basket, or the larger holed basket, the amount of juice that is actually juiced is at least 2x more than the other juicers, I have tried. I have had it for about 1 year. I use the juicer about 3 to 4 times a week. I like the clean up. Soap and water and a bottle brush to clean the screens takes about 3 minutes, tops. Nothing has broken yet.
Not much to break.
You have; the main body, the main basket( you see in the photo's with the two spouts), a cage basket (that has built in wipers to take the 'mud' away from the outer side of the inner screen basket). The the inner screen basket ( 2 types). The grinder that rests on the metal nub from the motor (the grinder piece is heavy pastic, or possibly ceramic, due to its beefy weight). Then you have the top part. All pieces have a dot to line the parts up, except the grinder. Just rotate it around until you feel it drop into place, as the motors' nub shaft it rests on is square.
This product has forward and reverse. I rarely use reverse. When the unit is on, it pulls the carrots, celery, etc. into the unit. If I feel something is lodged in the input/feeder tube, I use the plunger that comes with it.
With the other juicers I have tried, the plunger is 'the' essential tool to ram the veggies into the juicer, here, I rarely use it. The opening is suffiecent, as we all have knives to cut the veggies down to size and toss them in. The average carrot and celery stick, no cutting is required. The stringy part of the celery jams, or gets compressed in the waste outlet. Remove the outer strings before you toss it in. It will be the least preparation you have to do with this unit. If you leave the strings on, the celery will NOT stop the juicing function, it will only affect your total time to clean up, as now you must surgically remove the packed in frayed celery strings. A #2 Phillips (star) screw driver releases the screw holding the rubber stopper, thus relasing the celery pulp.
Not many parts with this unit asociated with the juicing function. When I make the super fine apple sauce, I core the apple, chop the apple, into (top view, looking down) 6 piece pie sections and toss them in with the skin on. The apple skin does not make it out to the apple sauce. It is ported to the refuse port basket.
I recommend this to friends all the time. The price is worth it.
