    MUCH BETTER THAN THE CCJ-100 – IT STAYS IN PLACE!!, June 29, 2011

    I purchased this juicer to juice lemons and limes so that I wouldn’t have to use my “hand held squeeze” juicer anymore. It works great and it gets almost all of the fruit out of the rind and it produces a larger amount of juice than compared to my hand juicer. Personally I wouldn’t suggest using it to juice a large amount of fruit at a time set at the “lowest” pulp setting because the pulp catcher fills up fast and you would have to continuously clean it. This works perfectly for what I purchased it for. It stays in place too unlike like the Cuisinart CCJ-100 and it looks nice on the counter.

    It’s simple and it works. I’ve read all the reviews and the main complains appear to be difficulty in cleaning and noisiness. I would disagree on both regards. The parts that are exposed to juice and pulp can all be taken apart, rinsed, and tossed in the dishwasher. No problems whatsoever. It does make noise, but nothing I could call annoying. Definitely not as loud as a blender.

    How it works:

    -Slice fruit in half.
    -Press fruit down firmly on top of juicer. You can lift up momentarily and the juicer reverses the direction for better juicing.
    -After about 15-30 seconds, your fruit half is completely juiced. Nothing left inside but the rind.
    -Juice drains out the front spout.
    -After juicing about a pound of fruit, you have to use the “final spin” feature, by putting the cover on and pressing the whole unit down. This activates a dryer-like spin cycle and squeezes lots of remaining juice from the pulp.

    How much juice does it get:

    This was my primary concern in purchasing a juicer. I hate to waste! To me it seems this juicer gets pretty much every last drop of juice out of the fruit. There is literally no fruit left inside the rind after it juices it. The only waste is what cannot be squeezed out of the pulp during the “spin cycle”, which is not very much. First time using it, I juiced 4 pounds of oranges and got about 4 cups of juice. (FWIW, 1 US Cup of water weighs 0.52 lbs, so you’re getting roughly half of the fruit turned into juice by weight. This of course includes the rind weight too.)

    Cleanup:

    Simple. Take off the cover, juicer, and juice catcher. No silly attachments to work with, they just lift off. Rotate the juicer part to separate it. Rinse off all pieces and toss them in the dishwasher. Cleanup done.

    Finally! An affordable citrus juicer that doesn’t s**k!, August 27, 2011

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    This review is from: Cuisinart CCJ-500 Pulp Control Citrus Juicer, Brushed Stainless (Kitchen)
    I like to keep a bottle of fresh-squeezed lemon juice in the fridge for making lemonade, other drinks, and for cooking – let’s face it, concentrated lemon juice you get in the store is lousy (and that’s being nice). But I’m not willing to pay $50 to $100 or more for fresh juice, and the more versatile juicers out there don’t do as good a job with lemons as a dedicated citrus juicer.

    I’ve ordered and set back several basic citrus juicers (including the earlier Cuisinart incarnation, the CCJ-100), looking for something that does its job and isn’t a piece of junk. I’ve finally found it. The motor is sturdy enough to withstand a good amount of downward pressure without choking, and has lasted at least through several large bags of lemons (my only complaint about the CCJ-100 was that it wore out within a short timeframe, and the motor started screaming – definitely on its last legs). Like the 100, this model has a nice watertight spout that holds the juice without spilling a drop until you are ready to dispense. It also has a more stable footprint (a chief complaint about the 100 from other users), a pulp selector for three levels of pulp, and a spin feature that extracts juice that normally stays in the pulp.

    Since it’s a new model I wasn’t able to find a better deal than $30, but it’s worth it to have a product that works. No complaints!
