    A Modern Juice Extractor

    Posted

    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.

    So far really good. We use a couple times per day with no issues. Clean up appears difficult at first, but the unit comes apart easily and is easy to rinse and wash. Very compact, so takes very less space in the drying rack. Extracts excellent fresh juice from basic fruits. No issues on carrots, potatoes, or other hard type of vegetables. It blows through fruit, although I don't think we've tried banana or mango yet. Very easy for first time setup and use. Super light weight and easy to move from one place to another. Forward button helps in extracting the final juice left over in the machine. The pulp gets accumulated very neatly in the collector. The juice collector's lid is very helpful for pouring the juice into cups or glasses. Overall, an excellent product for the juice lovers. I don't find anything negative in the product so far. Would definitely recommend this to my friends who are willing to pay a little extra for fresh juice.

    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 was not 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.

    I welcomed this juicer as I was excited to see what it can do! Firstly, it’s smaller than I anticipated because in the past, I’ve seen juicers that were much larger. Putting it together was an easy assembly. Thereafter, I tried a banana and strawberries that I had on hand. The juicer cannot take massive chunks at one time; therefore, I had to really cut my fruit up into finer pieces which was a little more time consuming than I’d liked to have encountered. Nonetheless, the result was well worth the cutting of tiny pieces because the machine produces a really good fruit smoothie! I didn’t experience no strings from the fruit or excess particles. I would recommend this to someone who likes to make smoothies and other drinks on a smaller scale.

    Juiced!

    There are plenty of in-depth reviews so I'll keep it short and sweet for you. It's good but it's not perfect. As others have mentioned, the main gripe is that the entry point for fruit is pretty small, so it takes quite a bit of work compared to bigger/heftier juicers, but the physical footprint space it takes up is a lot smaller. Also, read up on masticating juicers vs centrifugal, as there's a difference in the process that may affect taste and quality. However, it works really well. It juices. If it's in your price point, it's not bad to get among other options, but maybe wait for it to be on sale.

    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!

    Overall it could have been a better juice extractor. However, there are certain things makes it hard to give it full rating. So many small pieces in the augur mechanism that makes very difficult to clean the unit after each use. You have to really cut fruits and veggies into smaller than medium pieces. All those extra efforts of cutting and then hard to clean parts makes me think twice before I use it again. I like carrot juice a lot and "Avance" made me disappointed - it doesn't even extract 50% of juice from carrot. All other veggies and fruits I have tried so far get at least 80% of juice out of it. Overall, I am not fully impressed with Philips - Avance Collection Masticating Juice Extractor.

    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.

    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 have 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.

    The Philips Avance Juice Extractor is amazing. Assembly is simple and the device is easy to use. Performance: I have 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

    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.

    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 haven'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.

    I am new to juicing and wasn't sure what to expect with this product. There are many different types of juicers out there so it can be a little overwhelming at first. When I received the product I was excited to try it. It was pretty easy to assemble and clean after using. It's not bulky and looks very modern to go with any kitchen. I do like how it has a drip stop function. Cons It's easy to lose the detachable parts. I have never used another juicer but I feel like a lot of the juice was still in the pulp. You have to press down firmly feeding the machine with vegetables. Otherwise overall I would give this product a 3.5 out of 5 stars. I would recommend this to a friend who wants to start juicing.

    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.

    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.

    I've had this for about a week... Pretty easy to assemble and take apart I like the LED safety light, it lets you know if its assembles correctly, and as a safety feature it wont work if its assembled incorrectly. The "chute" that you put the fruit into seems small, you have to cut up pieces pretty small to fit in there, it would have been nice to have a bigger "chute". The juice container is small, i think this juicer is made as a single serving type, I'm not sure of the exact volume it holds, but it isn't enough for more than 1, maybe 2 people.

    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.

    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 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.
