*(After five months' use, the on/off switch and safety locking mechanism on this juicer developed a fault. When switched on, sparks were visible behind the switch and there was a strong smell of burning. Also, and potentially dangerously, the motor was able to run, despite the lid not being...

Fresh juice every morning

May be tempted to try grass juice

Every morning I wake up to the pleasure of my buzzing machine. He is French and very powerful. He looks smart and has a very solid sturdy body. He takes everything I feed him although he does like me to cut it up into chunks. He is fussy though and likes to be hand fed. I am of course talking...

“Juicing it up in style”

published 02/12/2001

Reliable, quiet, powerful

a bit pricy

I’ve had this neat little machine sitting and working in my kitchen for a few weeks now, and it does still get used at least twice a day. With winter approaching I decided that vitamin-packed fresh juice was the best way of keeping those sniffles at bay (it’s a lot more convenient to...

“TASTE MY JUICE”

published 08/05/2002

Practical, durable, efficient

Hard work to clean

A couple of years I had a bit of a craze where healthy eating was concerned. At the time, I often read articles in newspapers and magazines about the health benefits of increasing the amount of fresh fruit and vegetable juices in your diet. Freshly squeezed juices can offer a natural remedy to...

…expensive!

Meet ‘Le Duo’; my long lasting reliable, quiet yet powerful French partner…….. The thought of drinking your own freshly prepared juice squeezed from a variety of common and exotic fruit or vegetables according to your choice, packed with vitamins and full in taste sounded...

“SUPER JUICE”

I awoke one morning with an unrelinquishing desire for something fresh and fruity. The thoughts of dragging myself down the stairs to my fridge, only to be faced with the usual offerings really didn’t appeal. It really was time I bought myself a machine that could satisfy my desire. My...

low capacity basket means large quantities are fi...

The juicer has its pros and cons. The pros: As centrifugal juicers go it is extremely efficient at getting juice out of practically anything you throw at it and the motor is very good and will last a very long time. This jucer comes with a citrus press attachment which sits on the main basket and...

No pulp extraction (although see review)

It used to be "eat five portions of fruit & veg a day", Nowadays our soil is so dreadfully depleted in Minerals that this is simply not enough. The answer is to juice between meals! I have had my Le Duo now for about six months & bought it after researching all there was about juicing & juice...

Centrifugal - squeezes maximum juice out

Needs emptying frequently

I requested this juicer for a present after reading a good review in a magazine. It was to replace my aging Kenwood juicer which I felt never extracted all the juice as I was always left with wet looking pulp. The juicer has two tops, one for extracting juice from fruit and veg and the other is a...

Excellent juicing, heavy duty motor

Parts are not dishwasher proof at normal cycles.

It has been an absolute joy to own this machine, which was bought as a replacement for a Kenwood juicer. The Magimix LeDuo works like a large centrifuge, spinning the fruit at high speed and extracting the juice through tiny holes in the outside of the spinning drum. The simple design makes it...

Compact on your counter, & good juice yield.

A little awkward to clean - but worth it!

After trying a friend's juicer, I decided I had to have one myself. After extensive research online, I went for this one, and was definitely not disappointed. Although it was tempting (as a first-time juicer) to go for a cheaper model, it would have been a false economy. Having spoken to other...

This is the best juicer going in my opinion, some people moan its hard to clean, well they must be very lazy people indeed, as i have it down to a fine art now and can strip it down clean it and reassemble it in 5 minutes flat , and it would take you longer than that to go to the shops and buy the juice,ive had this one 6 years and just bought a new juiceing drum for it as it gets used evey day without fail,if you are buying a juicer my advice is buy this one

“One Powerful juicer”

published 08/02/2001

Long lasting, hard wearing

difficult to clean.

At around £100 this is an expensive juicer but I challenge you to wear it out. Other juicers I've used have burnt out over a period time. I doubt this one ever will. It is a weighty beast with a direct drive motor of unquestionable power. They guarantee it for 12 years!!! It has a citrus...

my best buddy owns this juicer. we have found that cleaning up after youve had the juice takes all the fun out of using it. the delicious pure clear juice this machine produces is drunk in seconds.... you will be at the sink for ages trying to get all the stuff out of the filter. the juice is...

I Love this juicer! It was bought as a wedding gift and I have been using it ever since. The juicer comes in a variety of colours including hot pink! I went for the conservative white. The only downsides are the cleaning (which I have now perfected) and it doesnt juice mangoes very well - but all...
