“ Brand: CookWorks / With Pulp Ejection „
I bought this juicer from Argos, it was a bargain at £10. I didn't want to spend a lot on a juicer as I wasn't sure I would use it regularly and I was worried the novelty would wear off!
I found it to be a good juicer that fitted my basic needs, although the fruit did need to be chopped so it would fit in the feeder. It produced a fair amount of juice and handled harder vegetables (such as carrots and beetroot) well.
It was a bit of a hassle to clean but probably not any worse than other juicers.
Despite being happy with the ease and value of the juicer it broke just after I'd had it a year. It was not a mechanical fault however, one of the plastic clips that holds the top portion to the actual juicing bit snapped and it would not work without being clipped on properly. I was very disappointed as up until then I found it to be a good juicer and excellent value for money.
The Cookworks Juice Extractor is a great entry-level juicer, for someone who wants to try juicing without risking too much outlay.
The juicer operates with a centrifugal mechanism, which is adequate for juicing most fruits and more solid vegetables such as carrots. It does struggle with leafier vegetables, for which a more powerful or masticating juicer is ideal.
It is fairly noisy but no more so than most juicers or blenders.
This juicer does tend to leave some un-juiced parts behind with the pulp, so does perhaps not get the maximum juice out of fruit and veg.
On the plus side it is relatively quick and easy to clean. This is a serious consideration when buying a juicer as some can take so long to clean after each use that they might just put you off juicing for good.
If you have heard about the health benefits and taste factor of juicing and want to give it a go, then I would recommend this product as an excellent first-time option.
We bought this juicer from Argos for £10. The deal was very attractive, so it was impulse buy. I have used cheap £5 toaster from Tesco and it was 3rd in Top 10 list in WHICH magazine. So, cheap doesn't always mean bad quality.
Out of the box, it looks quite good, with unique design. The blade is not as large as other pro juicer, but similar to other £40 models. The build quality is at acceptable level looking at its price. It also came with medium sized cup with measurements, and bowl to feed fruit continuously to the juicer.
I found it very very useful with carrot juice, grapes juice and Apple juice. Though I feed that higher end models can do better with apples.
I never managed to get this working with Orange, and it doesn't come with Orange juice extractor, but I wouldn't expect it for £10. I purchased separate Orange extractor for £2.
Overall, it is excellent value for money, if it is not upto the pro standard.
