    This is a nice juicer with a quality feel to it. Here is what I like about it, and where I see room for minor improvement:

    The Good:
    - Very easy to assemble, and more importantly very easy to clean. I just briefly rinse after use and then put the parts in the top dishwasher rack (minus the part housing the motor, of course).
    - Operation is clean, i.e. no juice hits the counter top, everything goes inside the pitcher.
    - I especially like the two cone sizes: The smaller one is for lemons and limes, the larger which goes on top of the smaller cone when needed, for grapefruits and oranges.
    - The smaller cone (which is always in) also features two plastic “blades” (called stirrers in the manual) at the bottom edge which rotate with the cone and help that juice and, if so desired, pulp actually make it into the pitcher through the strainer openings. One of the pet peeves I always had about manual juicers was the fact that the strainer got clogged with pulp and seeds so that the juice sat on top and didn’t flow through. Having these stirrers there moves pulp and seeds around so that the juice can get through and the openings don’t get clogged. But see note below when processing a larger number of fruits…
    - The reverse rotation feature is also useful in that I feel that more juice gets extraced from the fruit than if it would always just rotate in one direction. The fruit halves look really squeezed out.
    - Pitcher has a good capacity (32 oz). Works just as well for several large fruits as it does when one only has one single lemon – not too big, not too small.

    Don’t Like So Much:
    - The electrical cord is rather short, so one can’t operate this too far away from an outlet.
    - The auto-reverse sometimes kicks in and sometimes doesn’t, and since there is no button to auto-reverse, it sometimes requires several tries.
    - When squeezing a lemon on the max pulp setting, quite a few of the baby seeds also get through. Since I like as much pulp as I can get in my juices, this is either something I have to live with or I reduce the pulp setting to ensure that I don’t have the little seeds floating in my juice.
    - When squeezing larger fruits like oranges, a lot of the pulp tends to eventually collect on top of the strainer despite the stirrers (it just doesn’t fit through the small strainer openings). So I end up having to periodically scoop it out when processing a larger number of fruits to avoid solid covering of the strainer.

    Summary:
    This is a useful appliance for normal household usage. I don’t think, however, I would use it if I had large amounts of juice to make but for the occasional pitcher, this is perfect. At the price this is offered here, there is really nothing to think about: Get it and enjoy your lemonades or orange juices.

    Plastic parts/gears wore out in less than two bags of oranges juiced. Maybe okay if only used once or twice a year. Better off getting something else.

    Edit: My son and I took it apart since it was on the way to the dump. It turns out the gears were okay and it was just a poor design for turning the unit on. Pressure down the stem pushes on a switch turning on the small electric motor. There is too much play in the stem which requires increasing force to activate the motor. We came up with a simple fix…a small round head phillips screw (about #10) in the hole at the base of the stem takes up the slack and it seems to work consistently again. To open the unit remove 6 small phillips screws and 1 torx screw (you’ll need a special small torx screwdriver). We’ll see how long it lasts now.

    I don’t know what you guys are doing with your juicers they do not work well for you, but mine is excellent!! I have been using this bad boy every morning for a few weeks now and it has not failed me yet. I love it so much that I even bought one for my Mom. I realy like that it has a smaller part for limes and lemons, and it gets all the juice out. Thanks B&D!!!
