The juicer has its pros and cons.The pros:
It is very easy to clean. The central basket pops out easily. Empty the contents, wash and reattach. Very straightforward.The cons:
Unlike many other centrifugals it doesn't spit out the pulp into any seperate basket, this means that the more you juice the more frequently you will need to empty the basket. A little bit annoying, but is really not a problem if you are looking to only juice about 2 decent sized glasses worth of juice in one go.Really the biggest negative point is not specific to this juicer, it's more a problem with all centrifugal juicers - they just don't get as much juice and as much goodness (the vitamins and minerals in the juice) out of fruit and veg that other types of juicers do. If you are looking to take juicing up seriously I would advise you to look at masticating juicers. Be warned that you can expect to pay more than you would for a centirfugal but will be getting a better product. Try looking at the l'equip visor to start with- it's as easy as it gets to clean (cleaned and put away in a minute guareenteed) for starters... but only worthwhile if you're serious about juicing.
Conclusion:Overall it's a good juicer and a quality brand- better than any you would find on your average high-street, in my opinion one of the best centrifugal juicers you can possibly get in terms of build, ease of use, efficiency and reliability... but suffers from the fault of all centrifugal juicers- it just isn't as efficient as other types of juicers (but this isn't a problem unless you juce large quanities on a daily basis- you would never notice unless this was the case!) Definately as good a juicer as you're ever likely to get in this price range, and well worth the money.
