    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.

    Well made, but poor setup documentation

    I was looking forward to testing the unit, but was disappointed when I first used it. Putting it together seemed easy enough, however when I plugged it in nothing happened. I tried again and again over a couple days. I reread the instructions multiple times and googled how to set it up. I was about to give up and started messing with the container that catches the juiced leftovers. You have to push it in until it clicks or it will not work. The directions inform you that several other parts will not work if not properly installed but I do not recall seeing anything about making sure it clicks when inserted. I bought several oranges to have freshly squeezed juice for breakfast. Two large oranges and a half a pack of strawberries barely made a 16 ounce cup. The unit seems sturdy and does what it is designed for well once you get it working. It may work well for some but for me it is too much work and costly to use. I prefer to buy my juice already made and save the cost and hassle. If you have the extra time and money to throw away, it will get the job done.

    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.
