Advantages: Easy to use
Disadvantages: Only citrus fruits
We have an actual juicer, one that is big and works fast. But that one needs a lot of cleaning and if I just want a glass of fresh orange juice there is no point in mucking up the big juicer when ewe have this simple to use easy to clean citrus juicer. I just cut on orange in half and press it flesh side down on to the juicer. Don't expect loads of juice from this machine it's just like those old fashioned glass citrus juicer the only difference is it turns inside the fruit rather than you having to twist the fruit back and forth yourself. The juice trickles done into the base ready for you to pour out into your glass using the little spout. This will work well on oranges, Lemons, limes, and grapefruit. And I add a little lemon to my orange juice for that little bit of zing. I don't need to add much pressure it is more a case of holding it in place and pressing down gently. It makes a bit of noise but not too much. If i happen to apply too much pressure I can hear the motor struggling to turn. The power cord is long enough to stretch across my counter top but you do need to be right by the power socket.
This can not be put in the dishwasher but the parts wash up easily in the sink. The motor part doesn't get dirty and you must NOT put this near water as it is the electric part. If it does get a splash or two just Give it a light wipe with a damp cloth because of the White plastic finish any splashes will wipe off very easily. The juice collector tray is removable as is the top section that twirls under the fruit and collects any pips. There is a clear cover to go on top when it's not in use this keeps it clear from dust and this also can be washed in the sink using hot soapy water. The fact that this is White makes it look dated alongside our other silver appliances so we keep this in the kitchen press when not in use. This is a great alternative to the big bulky juicer, it's compact, simple to use and easy to clean.
Summary: Small, simple to use citrus juicer
