What our reviewer says...
When the box arrived I was worried about the size of this juicer and wondered if I'd actually have room for it. It is a large machine, however, due to it's design and it's brushed stainless steel exterior it looks very sleek and stylish on my worktop!
Putting the juicer together was really straight forward and the instructions were simple to follow. The juicer isn't heavy despite it's size so is easy to move around. Rubber suckers on the base are effective in holding the unit in position whilst juicing.
The juicer was very effective in juicing fruits/veg and I was amazed how much juice you could get out of vegetables! The advice is to remove bits like hard rinds and large stones that you wouldn't eat but apart from that everything else can go in! I was surprised how wide the feeding tube was and because of this it allows you to be able to insert large fruits and vegetables whole, without the need for pre-cutting. A great time saver!
The juicer is very innovative in its ability to immediately prepare two kinds of juice. If you prefer a smooth and clear juice and someone else in your family prefers a thicker one the unique FiberBoost technology lets you choose between the two in one touch! The constant speed of the motor for both the high and low fibre speeds ensures a consistent texture of juice, no matter how hard or soft the ingredients you are using.
The juicer comes with a lidded jug that fits neatly into the dispensing spout and is ideal for stopping any spillages.
A juicer is never going to be the easiest kitchen appliance to clean, and in the past I'd owned ones that take upto 30 minutes to thoroughly clean! However, this juicer features unique QuickClean technology, which enables you to clean the device in just one minute. After juicing you can use the pre-clean function to rinse away leftovers from the lid and sieve. This feature is a godsend and really does work! I found it especially useful to rinse the juicing elements between sessions if you are doing different types of juices. It also works well to get rid of a lot of the debris, before either hand-washing or being put in the dishwasher. The only part of the juicer I found needed a little extra attention when cleaning were the sieve blades - although this was easily solved by using a sponge to wipe the sieve clean worked well. The pulp is collected in the unit for easy disposal.
Overall I think this is an excellent juicer. The thing that impressed me most was the design and style. I don't usually like kitchen gadgets being out on my worktop however this juicer has stayed out because it looks so sleek. All the juices that I've made have been really tasty and a nice consistency. Having a juice in the morning has become a healthy and easy addition to my morning routine.
