I know this is awful, but the reason I settled on the Waring Health Juice Extractor over other similar juicing machines was its appearance. I had a thing about chrome at the time, and imagined it would fit in perfectly next to all my other gleaming appliances. Fortunately for me my small-mindedness went unpunished.
Perhaps one of the most valuable aspects of the extractor is the ease with which you can clean it. I have had juicers in the past that were all slim funnels and tricky ledges that took a good twenty minutes and an assortment of wire brushes to get clean, but mercifully this is not the case with this offering from Waring. Most of the parts demand little more than a run under the tap, but the strainer is slightly more problematic. It takes a bit of poking about to rid this component of all debris, but even this is preferable to models I have used in the past.
One aspect I didn't care for was the noise. The machine emits a violent whirring when it is being used, but as it is so efficient this sound does not continue for very long. This is a powerful bit of kit: it has a 400 watt motor that is almost too vigorous at times. Thankfully the textured material on the bottom of the machine keeps it from wandering off when in use, so there are few safety issues to be concerned with.
In conclusion, I consider this to be an excellent purchase, and I have had the opportunity to invent a variety of healthy concoctions drinks-wise. I might just try the picking-on-appearance method again some time if it promises to always be this successful.
