Got this juicer as it was half price at Argos, and had ok reviews. It does what it says on the tin, it juices fruit and gets plenty out of it too, the only problems are it's messy with the pith and any seeds have to be taken out first - even from grapes which can be painful. It's also noisy and can only be on for 5 mins at a time otherwise the motor will burn out apparently! It's prefect for lazy Sunday mornings to have a fresh juice (with yoghurt and honey is nice) where it can be cleaned straight away - if the fruit dries on this especially the filter it is a nightmare to clean. For the price we paid it's fine, If you're thinking of spending £50 pay a bit more and go for a better model!
When reading this review was not surprised the pips should have to be taken out, as my previous juicer insisted. So this was kind of a negative point but not a showstopper. Having bought the juicer, the manual mentions nothing about taking the pips out, and I haven't.
The five-minute time limit was unexpected, as my last juicer's manual had twenty minutes, but this time the manual concurs. Five-mintues is plenty of time anyway.
I also paid, £25. Sold!
