Disadvantages: Noise is loud, to much packaging
I absolutely love the taste of freshly squeezed orange juice and dislike the processed juice you get in the cartons from super markets. I have never found a brand of orange juice that i like or that tastes good or real. I only ever drink fresh orange juice first thing in the morning to accompany my cereal and i count that as part of my five a day fruit. I had a hand juicer before but took a lot of time and effort to get half a glass. My mother bought me the John lewis CCJ100JLU juicer when it was on sale.
John lewis CCJ100JL juicer cost £15 reduced for £25.00. This comes packaged in a white box with the exact picture of the juicer on the front. Inside the juicer and contents are individually wrapped in plastic, i felt the plastic packaging was a bit over the top and once i had unwrapped everything i has a compact box over flowing with clear plastic bags.
The instructions that come with the juicer and easy to read and take in.
The juicer is a nice compact size and does not take up too much room on my kitchen worktop , it measures roughly as being 11 inches tall and 6 inches wide. It is made from stainless steel and has black plastic trim around the base and the neck. The lid of the juicer is clear and twists on.
Cable comes out the back of the juicer near the bottom of the base, it is a good length around 16 inches more that enough to reach a socket or at least in my kitchen anyways.
The juicer is very easy no real setting up just plug in, cut oranges in half and take the clear lid of and all set to go. When the clear lid has been removed there is a small white cone shaped lump of plastic that sticks up this is where you place the orange and press the big round button in and the cone starts turning. There is one one button on the juicer and its for turning it on and off.
When the juicer has started turning its loud like a vibrating sound but the juicer machine stays still its just the noise of the cone going round.
The juice and pulp go through small slits in the cone but the seeds are left in at the bottom of the cone where its deliberately curved up to catch them.
You have to hold the orange on as the cone turns but don't need to use any pressure nor does it take long to juice around one and a half minutes per slice of orange.
Once you have used a few oranges you just slide open the drink spout and the orange juice trickles out , just put a glass under to catch the juice first.
Cleaning is simple because the cone comes out and can be hand washed or put in the dish washer. The outside doesn't really get dirty but i take a damp cloth over it after each use just incase.
I love the juice i can make although the winter oranges are not as tasty but still good enough. You can juice any citrus fruit in it not just oranges.
I love this juicer, its stylish and easy to use. I highly recommend it.
