Advantages: Appearance, great design, big shoot.
Disadvantages: Very difficult to clean by hand
I bought this phillips juicer for my new apartment at £65 on a christmas sale last year. The juicer looks great and is made of the best materials to ensure that it lasts long. The size of it is big but not too big, the machine itself is very powerful (700w) and the juice that runs out is super clear without any bits what so ever. The nozzle that the juice runs from can also be pushed slightly upwards to reduce spillage.
The machine can take in whole apples without the need of peeling and coring which is marvelous and time saving. In fact the input whole is so big that it can take in nearly all fruit or vegetables without cutting(of course not melons and papaya).
The juicer truely extracts all the juice out of the fruit/veg as I have squeezed the pulp and its really dry, to minimize wastage I use the apple pulp and preserve it with sugar and make an apple chutney, its perfect as its dry.
Its fairly easy to clean as it is suitable for dishwashers, but if like me you do not own a dish washer then this can be a nightmare to wash. The razor sharp blades are very small and require patience and extreme precision to clean as it can cut your hand( yes it has happened to me in the past). There are a lot of compartments to clean, but its well worth it if you bulk-juice it. I juice a lot of fruit and veg together and keep it in a sterilized bottle and it lasts me up to a week.
I recommend to try this recipe:
2 inches of ginger
half a cucumber
a handful of blueberries(to add antioxidents)
This will pack a punch and also its fiberlicous, you will feel great the next day. Pour into a jug and top up with orange juice to increase its sweetness if you prefer.
Summary: Great buy, it can improve your diet and make consuming your five-a-day much easier.
