I bought this at Argos for £25. This being my second juicer after returning the Argos XB433 (do not buy!). For £25 it is a great juicer. With only a 600 Watt motor it is not as fast as the other more expensive models, but definitely copes well with all types of fruit and vegetables.
The rotating mesh is a good size so it can extract as much juice as possible. The pulp is quite dry and collected nicely in the side pulp collector.
It does leak though very slightly on the fastest setting. This is due to the vibration and high air pressure created by the rotating mesh which sucks in air from the side pulp collector and blows it out of the juice dispenser. On the faster setting using oranges, the juice does splash slightly coming out.
From one orange I managed to extract just under 200ml. To maximise the juice extraction you have to plunge the fruit slowly.
Cleaning is easy. The pulp container is easy to dismantle. Two catches on the lid easily removes the lid to be quickly washed. The rotating mesh pops out with a little effort but does require some scrubbing to remove the tiny bits of pulp stuck in the blades. Then the main container lifts off the motor base easily.
The motor is quite noisy but not much different to a blender or similar appliance. It is quite difficult to store due to its size, but I just leave it on the kitchen counter.
I would definitely recommend this juicer and would not doubt its juice extracting performance against other more expensive models from Breville or Philips.
