    Having never owned or operated a juicer, I wasn't entirely sure I would be able to make good use of it or be confident in cleaning it after use. I am pleasantly surprised and happy to announce that this little device juiced carrots just as easily as cucumbers and cherries, and was SO easy to clean for the next juice. The instructions included are simple to read and understand.

    I am new to juicing and people that juice regularly are telling me that masticating juicers are the only way to go and a real cost saver because of all the juice you get out of it compared to a regular juicer. This particular juicer is REALLY super easy to clean. It really does what it says it will do and, for beginners like myself, it is something that will help you want to continue on your juicing journey because of the ease of use and cleanup of the product.

    This juicer is not only super easy to use, but it is also super easy to clean and reassemble. Two things stood out to me on this unit. It's very quiet while extracting juice, and it has a pretty small footprint for what it does. It's nice that it is black, and it really does do a fantastic job of juicing just about anything you can think of.

    This is a great juicer. Clean up is super easy. Have tried grapes and carrots and it was great. Look forward to trying many more combinations. Comes with a small recipe book. It has a sleek design and does not take up a lot of counter space.

    If you're interested in making your own juice this is great for beginning. Easy to clean, easy to maintain fast to put together and break down. This unit is a bit pricey and doesn't warrant most people money's worth more when you know what's going in to your body.

    I have had juicers before and this one is good. It fits a need at the moment. Down the road I may spend more as this is more of a need. However for just me and no one else a few times a week this is just fine and clean up isn't as bad as others.

    I have had the jucier for about two days, I like the small footprint and the easy cleanup. Setup was a breeze though the easy setup diagram is a bit confusing. The unit has an LED to indicate if assembled correctly and will not even work if not assembled correctly. The jucier does a decent to above average job on what it has suppose to do but entails some extra effort on your part. The items to be jucied must be cut into small enough size to be worked on by the jucier. The entry chute is also small, so takes multiple times to put stuff in to get sufficient juice production. I think it's best for a single person or couple as the container for juice is not very large and so seems better suited for a small family. My other jucier's container is much larger but takes up a much larger counter space and much more difficult to cleanup. I can clean up the unit in under 3-5 minutes, maybe less if I really try. I take a star off because as others said even the precut store bought fruits and vegetables have to be cut smaller to FIT in the unit's entry chuteI also felt some spray from the point of entry as I pushed the fruit into the machine as it began masticating the items. I think the small footprint is great for those with limited kitchen space but it does take longer to get sufficient juice due to this size.

    Price Point Way Off

    From the first time I used this thing, I felt like I had paid too much for it. It does have a nice, attractive, space saving, sleek design, but it's just ok as far as juicing goes. I don't like that you have to hold the self cleaning button while it's working, and it only works for a few seconds before automatically stopping on its own, so if u want to do that longer, you have to keep letting go, pressing and holding again for the few seconds it works until you're satisfied. It is cute, but I'm mad I waited too long to return it. Definitely not worth $300, it should be half that at best.

    Have to cut already cut fruits/veggies

    I think that having to cut already pre-cut fruits/veggies kind of defeats the purpose of a juicer. I understand that in order to make the unit small, some sacrifices had to be made, but I'm sure that the entry point could have been made larger without having to increase the juicer's footprint. There's a standard size of pre-cut fruits/veggies. I think if this standard size would have been taken into account, then the juicer would have turned out much more useful. Other than that, the juicer works well, like any juicer should but clean up seems a bit more involved than what one would think from reading the marketing.

    Cleanup is Simple, Juice Needs Straining

    The slim design makes for easy storage on the counter or in the cabinet. I thought the drill would rotate faster but it still extracted all of the juice AND most of the pulp. The "sieve-free design" probably makes for an easier cleanup, (just rinse it off) but that just gives you an extra step (and an extra dirty dish) to sieve the juice separately if you don't want the pulp. I wouldn't recommend this for first-time juicers, but it's good for those who make juicing a lifestyle. It's all about preference.

    So easy to clean

    I've never had a juicer before. But I figured why not. I unboxed it and got it put together pretty quickly. Read through the manual and picked out some recipes to try. I headed out to the store to grab some fruits and veggies. It was super easy to juice everything, and it did an amazing job of grinding every last drop of juice out of my ingredients. The absolute only con in my opinion is having to cut things up so small to have to fit in the chute. An opening maybe twice the size it is would be really helpful. Cleaning is hands down as easy as they claim. You take the grinding shaft out and simply rinse it off. It's a breeze! The device takes up little shelf space and does a great job. I recommend it to those who are really into juicing.

    The Phillips Masticating Juicer was easy to clean, easy to set up and easy to use. We made the "Farmers Market Juice" with a handful of strawberries, 1 apple, 1 cucumber, and 2 carrots... it tastes great! It made 20oz of juice. Can't wait to try it on our lemons once they are ripe for homemade lemonade. Perfect for those wanting to add veggies or fruit to their diet. Much better than store bought juices with added ingredients.

    Sleek and Modern Plus Easy To Clean!

    This juicer is a wonderful product. At first, all the parts seem a bit much to clean every time, but it really doesn't take long at all. The unit isn't messy at all. The juice produced is nicely strained and there's hardly any pulp which I really like since I'm not a fan of pulp. There's a juice cup and storage lid so you can make quite a bit of juice at a time. I look forward to exploring and creating different combinations of healthy fruit and veggie juices.

    Very good juicer

    This is my first juicer (aside from the old-fashioned hand-juicers my grandparents had) so my experience is a bit limited. Unpacking and assembling the juicer is very easy. It snaps together in a way that makes sense, but the instructions are provided if you need to refer to them. It took maybe two minutes to put together and plug in. It comes apart just as easily! As far as making juice goes it seems to do a very good job. My wife and I tried a few recipes we found online. Mixtures of carrot and celery juice, limes, pineapples, apples and strawberries. The juicer seemed to grind them all and extract quite a bit of juice without any problem. There are mixtures of pulp and fruit left in the machine, but it's a much smaller amount than what I was expecting. Unfortunately, it wasn't exactly "no mess" but more "very little mess." There was definitely some bits escaping--mostly from the feed tube. Not a lot, but enough that if you're a clean freak it might bother you. If you're a clean freak the best part of this juicer is how easy it's to disassemble and clean. As mentioned it comes apart quickly and easily, which makes cleaning it a breeze. For things like this I generally hand wash, but it's described as being dishwasher safe. Overall this juicer does the job and is easy to clean. If you're very into juicing this should do the trick!

    Finally, an Easy to Clean Juicer

    I've had juicers in the past, and they all worked fine, but they all suffered from the same issue: they wer hard to clean. That isn't the case with the Philips Masticating Juicer. It can be cleaner in just a few minutes, which means you will be a lot more likely to use the juicer. In the past, cleanup has always caused my juicers to go into disuse. The other issue I've had with past juicers is that they take up a lot of counter space. The Philips Juicer is very slim, meaning I can leave it out. This is another great aspect to this juicer, as I would forget I even had my other juicers since they weren't out where I would see them. Juicing is a great way to eat healthy, get your fruits and vegetables, and this is a juicer you won't regret having.

    First Time Juicer

    This is my first experience with a juicer and I really like the ease of use with this juicer. Out of the box it requires a few small easy steps for assembly. (I hate that the directions only show pictures.) Once assembled, I cut up some fruit and started juicing. I've heard of some juicers being really loud but this one is not loud at all. It works really well. Clean up is one of the best things with this juicer. You just take out some of the parts, rinse, and you're done. It is very slim so that it can fit on your countertop without taking up a lot of space (although I will store it somewhere else). I'ven't had any other juicers to compare this one to, but after using it a couple of times I would recommend for a first timer.

    Excellent Home Juice Extractor

    I chose the Philips Avance Collection Masticating Juice Extractor as my two sons go through an incredible amount of store bought juice. While other reviews I'd read online appear to suggest that this juice extractor doesn't get as much juice as the reviewer expected, I'ven't found this to be much of an issue. It really depends on the type of fruit you place into the extractor. The juicer comes with a really helpful recipe book and its a lot of fun trying out the recipes in the book but I've also had a lot of fun just making up our own recipes. Simple apple juice was amazing, it tasted like the apple cider we get at apple orchards in the holidays near where we live and yet we can make it at home. Assembling the juicer is easy, just follow the simple steps outlined in the manual and cleaning it's also exceptionally easy. All the removable parts can be placed into the dish washer or washed by hand. Once you have put the juicer together a few times there is no need to keep the instructions nearby, it's easy to put together again. Would definitely recommend this to any family, especially with kids that go through the store bought juice as quickly as ours.

    When our juicer arrived, we were very excited to get started making our own juuice combinations! Upon opening the box, all the pieces and parts were separate and needed to be put together. No big deal as it's pretty simple and the instructions do a decent job of illustrating what needs to be done. I expected the juicer to be bigger, but was pleasantly surprised by it's compact design. It fits nicely on our counter. This juicer is amazing. I extracts every last bit of juice from whatever you feed it. For my test run, I cut up some apples and fed them to the juicer, peels and all. The juice was delicious, there were no chunky bits or anything. When I went to empty the refuse bin, I was pretty amazed to see how little of the apple was left. It was like it had been reduced to apple dust, lol. Fruits with thin skins (any skin that you eat) go right through it. Thicker skinned fruits, like oranges, need to be peeled. When using oranges, make sure you get rid of the white pith otherwise your juice may taste a little bitter. Cleaning is a breeze. Everything comes apart easily and rinses clean in a snap. All in all, this juicer is everything we wanted and expected it to be. Philips makes quality products and this juicer is nothing less. Buy with confidence.
