    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.

    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.

    My first juicer

    As far as juicers go, I'm a newbie. Knowing that my wife has been trying to convince me to juice for a year now, I decided to try this out. I must say it is pretty impressive. It is pretty easy to put together and even easier to clean. We tried a variety of fruits and veggies and the thing I noticed the most is that there were no strings, pulp or residue in the glass after mixing the fruit. I expected there to be something, but it was all captured in the bin below the juicer. It is also surprisingly quiet for a juicer in my opinion and pretty easy to use. It even comes with a small pitcher that can be used to store your concoctions in. It also came with a recipe book, but most of the fun was just throwing different things in the juicer just to see what it would taste like. I must admit, I liked our beet, carrot, orange, ginger and honey mixture the best. Didnt sound great when we were doing it, but I've had worse. All in all, I think this juicer is very well built, easy to use and quite fun. The only thing I would be apprehensive about is the price, but as I said, I'm new to juicing so maybe this is in line with a quality machine. I gave it four stars because of the price, but other than that I would recommend it.

    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.

    Juice Everything

    The Philips Avance Juice Extractor is amazing. Assembly is simple and the device is easy to use. Performance: I've very impressed with the power of the Phillips Avance Juicer. Everything I've added to the juicer (including bananas, kale, spinach, carrots, nuts) has turned out wonderfully. Style: I particularly appreciate the style of the Phillips Avance. It looks great in the kitchen, and goes great with my other appliances. The sleek design is not only awesome to look at, but it makes handling the appliance easier too. Maintenance: Cleaning the Phillips Avance is a breeze. Within minutes the entire unit can be disassembled, cleaned, and reassembled, ready for use. The LED indicator lets you know if something is not attached properly.

    I started a juicing detox program, and this product is an integral part First off, the directions are kinda weak. You will fumble around for a few minutes since they are not complete, but it is fairly easy to figure out The vegetable chute is fairly small, so you will have to pre-cut the veggies down smaller than usual to get them to fit The unit is not very loud, operates smoothly (little vibration), and the end product is near perfect. I had the same drink made fresh before by a specialty grocery store, and I actually thought that my home batch was better at a fraction of the cost Clean-up us very simple, and the units plastic parts only stained a little from the turmeric. Overall this was a very sound investment in my families health

    this juicer is fantastic. very elegent design, simple to clean and even easier to use. it's a lot quieter than I was anticipating too, which is a plus. the opening isn't very large (due to its narrow design), so anything larger than than the thickness of a banana would need to be cut up.

    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.

    Upon pulling this product out of the box and setting it up use was easy. Following the instructions and recipes I was making good tasting fresh juice. The only thing o don't like is that it takes several fruit pieces to make a cup. You can modify the drinks any way you want once squeezed. Like adding yougart, milk, and or sugar. Still it is easy to use.

    Decent Juicer

    The philips juicer was easy to assemble with the included assembly guide. The quality is very good and feels like it will last a while. It is easy to use as well and the no drip spout works very well. We had a very low yeild on carrots and beet but worked really well with oranges. We did not find it easy to clean as a lot of stuff was left sticking on the mast which had to be completely diss assembled to clean it thoroughly. One of the advantages is the small footprint and the modern looks to fit into any kitchen.

    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.

    Wheezing the juice

    I love this juicer just not the time it takes to make it, I just can't see taking a star or two for that reason though. I did however take a star off for the mess, ready below. First off the manual is right up there with put together furniture manuals, horrible. It's not really needed anyway as the unit is pretty straight forward and simple to use. Super sleek, sold and compact makes this a great addition to our small appliances. Clean up is simple and easy so far. I have ran about four different concoctions through it and all have cleaned up easily. The juice recipe book that's included has some great ideas and I tried two of them, we loved them both. Plan for spending about 30 minutes or more in prep and juicing before you get to enjoy the fruit of your labor. Most things need to be cut up pretty good to fit into the fill slot and not much fits in there so it is time consuming. Not very noisy either. My biggest and really only complaint was the mess it makes on the counter and surrounding area (yourself and the floor), it would be nice to come with something better to collect the juice into, maybe with some type of chute or higher to the spout. But other than that this baby pulverizes whatever you put in it. Does a great job getting every last drop out.

    First time juicer

    This is the first juicer that I actually owned. My sister is an avid juicer and I figured that might as well give it a shot. From taking this juicer out of the box and assembling it was extremely simple! It took be no less than 5 minutes to get it ready to juice. Compared to my sisters juicer, the Philips needs the produce to be cut into much smaller pieces to go down its chute. It is nicely compact but it is a bit loud (but its to be expected). Very easy to disassemble to clean. I didn't have any issues with a mess or cleaning. The juicer holds up to what Philips says it could do. Good job!

    A Modern Juice Extractor

    I have been using various Juicers/Blenders over the years. I was particularly excited to get this one as this is a Masticating Juice Extractor/ For those of you unfamiliar, this utilizes something similar to an auger to slice the products into little pieces and crush them as they pass further along the auger. Based on the yields I got, I would say it is fine. Not to bad but not crazy awesome as well. Overall I was satisfied with it. Pros: -The juicer is easy to put together, although the first time it took a bit of studying the picture instructions. -The juicer is easy to clean, literally takes less than 5 minutes to take apart and rinse. -Easy to use, the auger takes down most ingredients with ease, meaning you can juice just about anything. @@@@@@@@ I still have not tried nuts). -Sleek and modern, takes up very little space and looks great in the kitchen. Cons: -Small feeder tube, although this looks to be standard on these types of juices.

    The Philips Avance Collection Masticating Juice Extractor is just amazing, simple as that. I received it at 3pm and by 330pm, I had my first glass of juice. Assembly is quick and painless, I do recommend giving the parts a quick was before use though. I grabbed some green apples right away and cut them into slices and cubes to test which way was better. Well, it doesn't matter, this thing just eats fruit up like nothing, peels and all. I then tried oranges, pears, kale, and zucchini, all went through without any issues. The juice is pulp free and my kids are in love, I have not seen my kids drink that much juice in a long time. The pulp that is left over is almost dry, the Phillips juicer does a great job getting as much juice out as possible saving you money. Pros: Quiet Fast Assembly Easy to clean Little waste Compact design Looks good Great quality juice No more pre bottled stuff for my kids Fast juicing Cons: None! I highly recommend this juicer, I am hooked on this, never thought I would be.

    Efficient Juicing and Easy Clean Up

    This juicer is efficient and easy to use. Overall, I like using it and it seems like a good value for the price. Here are the pros and cons that I have found by using the juicer. Pros. First of all, it's easy to use. It takes a few minutes to figure out how everything fits together but once you get used to it you'll realize that the design is made for easy cleaning. Once assembled, it's as easy as chopping up some fruit or vegetables and putting them in the juicer. Another nice thing about this unit's that it's very compact. It's thin design is easy to store and doesn't take up a lot of precious kitchen space. Overall, it's high quality, sleek and sturdy. Perhaps the most important aspect of the juicer is that it works well! Although I am always shocked at how little juice you get from most fruits and vegetables, the juicer seems to extract almost all of it. The non-juice portion collects below the juicer and you can see and feel that it's dry, meaning that most of the juice is extracted. I tried carrots, celery and apples. They all worked well but what I noticed about the apples is that the juice varies depending on the type of apple. I used a softer apple and the juice was like apple sauce. I then used a crisper apple and it was much more like an apple cider (very juicy). Cons. The only negative about this juicer is that it doesn't process a lot of volume. The feeding tube is very small and fruits and vegetables need to be chopped into fine pieces in order to process. While this isn't a big deal if you are making drinks, it just means that it will take a long time to process large quantities (like when I harvest my garden). I think tomatoes will work great but for the harder fruit that needs to be cut up and de-cored it could take a lot longer. I should also note that, while this juicer cannot process a large volume quickly, it's worth it for the tradeoff between its size. Overall, the juicer is high quality and well designed. It's super easy to clean so you can use it for small quantities or daily without having to worry about a lot of cleanup. It literally rinses clean in less than a minute.

    A Good Mastigating Juicer

    • My Best Buy® Elite Plus MemberElite Plus Member

    1. packaging and assembly firstly the packaging, it is slim and does not make it feel like it is a full sized juicer. that's a good thing the instructions are very straightforward, I just looked at the pictures to assemble it and did not even have to read the instructions. it comes with 2 bins, on for collecting the juice and the other for pulp. 2. Making the Juice. I do have a jack lalanne juicer which I use regularly before getting this, my son loves fresh juices (Oranges). So I have to say that I am comparing a centrifugal juicer vs a masticating juicer. Now, for those who do not know what a centrifugal juicer is that these types of juicer operate at very high speed, they crush the produce and push them against a porous wall where the juice the flow through the pores and the remains of the fruit is collected in a containter. Masticating juicer push the fruit through a crusher and then the juice is separated from the fruit and flows into a container. they operate at low speed and they also have a small opening vs a larger opening on the centrifugal juicer. Now using the Philips Avance Juicer, I tried first with apples and I have to say that I got a lot more juice as compare to the jack lallanee juicer so I have to believe that mastication is not just a gimmick Next I tried some carrots, I did have to put in a little more pressure as compare to the jack lallane juicer but again the quantity of the juice was pretty good. 3. Pros and Cons Pros - - more nutrients are retained and more juice extracted - tastes better much better as compared to the regular centrifugal juice - you can store the juice longer - cleaning is easier, much better than the centrifugal juicer cons - - the feeding tube is small as compared to centrifugal juicer

    The Philips Avance Collection Masticating Juice Extractor works well. I love the slim, lightweight design which allows for versatile positioning in several kitchen areas. However, the smaller size does force a little bit of extra prep time of the ingredients to get everything small or narrow enough to put through the juicer. Not that big a deal, but a bigger unit might be preferable to some. The machine is loud but not nearly as noisy as some other juicers I've used, and operation is simple. The included recipe book is nice, but I was able to create a number of wild combinations using the juicer without worrying about portioning, taste viability, healthiness, etc. Ginger everything, I say! A plus is being able to make your drink directly into your glass and not worry about the mess with the drip stopper spout. The parts are easily detachable and simple to reassemble. Cleanup isn't as quick as advertised (I think a minute is quite a reach, especially for some ingredients), but it's easy enough to not be burdensome over several uses if you can plan for the cleanup ahead of time. The first time I cleaned this was a little bit of a headache. Overall, this unit's a great juicer for on-the-go or quick energy drinks, especially for people short on kitchen area and want a well-designed, no-frills machine. Just leave time for cleanup. Full disclosure, I was provided this item for my honest, unbiased review.

    Sleek and Quiet Juicer, but Messy Aftermath

    At first impression the juicer looks sleek and very modern. It looks nice in the kitchen and it's not very big, so it doesn't take up a lot of space. I put in the kitchen island next to my other kitchen appliances. The juicer comes with a manual (which is terribly written) and a juicer instruction book so you can create new drinks (great help!). Putting it together wasn't complicated although there are 8 pieces to put together. I've never used a juicer before but this was a nice one to start with, I made juice w/ apples, oranges, and pineapples. It was delicious. Although it does get messy. I never knew how much fruits goes into a single cup of juice. The cleaning wasn't hard, used hot water and soap and it was good as new. It was a bummer about all the pulp left behind but then again that's the norm w/ juicer I guess. I like this juicer, its compact, sleek and it does its job. I would recommend to anyone. I'll be using this for my spinach, pineapple, and apple juice in the mornings.
