Advantages: Great way to squeeze juice
I love freshly squeezed juice. Orange juice, grapefruit juice, the fresher the better. I also make cocktails at home and it's nice to add some freshly squeezed juice to these too, especially lime juice in my world renowned Cosmopolitans!!
I have used hand juice pressers before but they do need a lot of elbow grease and so an electric one is a lot easier to use. This juicer is very well designed as it makes it so easy to juice the fruit and then pour it into your cup/glass etc.
The top of the juicer has a cone on it which the fruit sits on top of. The cone is obviously small at the top and then gets bigger as it goes down so it will fit small fruit at the top such as limes but is then big enough to take bigger fruit such as grapefruits, etc. The machine plugs in and then in order to start the motor you just press the fruit half onto the top of the cone. I think this is a really handy way of starting the machine as then you do not need to worry about making sure you have the fruit in place before you flick a switch. With this machine, the power is in your hand and you can control the depth you go into your fruit.
The cone has a dish around it which has slats in it. The juice runs through these slats into the bowl underneath. Once you have got all the juice out of your fruit you pull it off the cone. The cone comes away from the bowl underneath and this in turn comes off the motor unit which allows you to pour it into your glass. There is a little spout on the jug so its easy to pour and I don't really make a mess.
This then makes the machine very easy to clean. The cone is plastic and as it has no grates on it the fruit pulp and residue washes away easily and the jug washes easily too. Obviously as the motor unit has the electrics in it you do not wash this but it is easily wipe cleanable.
A great way to get some of your five a day in juice form!
