      Disadvantages

      Makes squeezing pleasing.

      We can choose from a wonderful range of juices on the supermarket shelves these days. If something's capable of getting juiced you can probably buy a carton of it - sweetened, unsweetened, smooth or "with bits" and probably in various blends with other juices.

      This is good; but there's nothing like the "real thing", is there? At breakfast - and indeed at any other time of the day - freshly squeezed orange juice is as sublime as freshly ground coffee and freshly baked bread. It smells good, it tastes good and I could easily be tempted to believe that it does you good as well.

      For this reason I have a citrus juicer in my kitchen: namely the Braun MPZ6

      This isn't one of those big things with a hopper in the top that you tip a load of fruit in and simply put your jug or glass under the spout. It's a small, compact machine with a 350ml jug sited beneath a cone which agitates when you press down upon it with your half of an orange, or whatever. So in fact it's very much like an old fashioned, glass, manual juicer, except it's powered and there's somewhere capacious for the juice to flow.

      The powering has some subtlety to it in that, as I say, it only activates when you press down, so it doesn't waste power (and, anyway, at 20 watts it hardly guzzles juice, as it were) and you have a lot of control over what is happening. It also alternates between turning clockwise and anti-clockwise, so that juice is extracted more efficiently. In addition, there's adjustable pulp control, which means that you can make it pulp faster and slower.

      The cone and the jug are easy to remove and to clean, and there's a rigid plastic dust cover.

      The jug is scaled so that you can measure the quantity of juice you are collecting.

      The base of the unit allows for the cord to be wound, should you not need the full length, or for ease of storage.

      What I like about the Braun MPZ6, like so many of the things in my kitchen, is that it is not too big, so not only does it not take up too much space on my worktop, but also I can put it away easily. It does its job efficiently, simply and is easy to clean.

      Some might pull a face at the fact that it is limited to citrus fruits and that there is some, albeit small, effort involved i.e having to hold the fruit in place. Yet surely this is the beauty of the thing: I'm getting a healthy drink packed with Vitamin C and taking exercise at the same time. What could be better?

      They seem to be selling for around £24.00 at the moment. You can also buy replacement plastic jugs for them, should you need one, retailing at just over £7 online. And I was impressed to see that Braun still sell replacement jugs for some of their older models. That's the kind of thing that, as a consumer, I find reassuring in a company: there's some commitment to their customers and faith in the longevity of the products. I've had mine for over ten years and the fact that they're still producing the same machine with perhaps only one or two small tweaks, suggests that it's been popular and that there couldn't have been too much wrong with it in the first place.

      Firmly recommended.
