Best Citrus Juicer I've owned, By R. A. Moskal 'R.A.M.'
May 20, 2010
This Chef'n Juicer is the best Juicer I've owned. I enjoy my Gin (Sapphire) and Tonics and like to press 1/2 lime into a drink (Fever-Tree Tonic Water highly recommended too), as well as fresh lime juice in a margarita. I put my presses to the test! I've have owned a bunch of the green or yellow single hinged juicers which have served well but don't last very long, either pop a rivet or the hinge breaks. They also gum up with repeated use and are difficult to clean (I think maybe the wax on the fruit??). This juicer uses a mechanical advantage for pressing which requires much less pressure and gets most juice in one press. The press surfaces are also more durable and easier to clean. Own this juicer and you will not be happy using the old style. Only con I might list is it only comes in one size (big emough for a good sized lemon) but even with the smaller limes I get a good press.
Plastic gear broke, By Sam 'Sam'
April 17, 2010
The gear mechanism advertised to increase force is made of plastic. The second time I used this juicer the last tooth of the plastic gear broke. The first time I used it was on small limes, so the thinner skin probably didn't stress it as much. Such a high stress part really should have been made of something much stronger (perhaps stainless steel).
great idea, poor execution DO NOT BUY, By juiceten
October 5, 2010
Looks like a great idea: use compound leverage to increase the squeezing power/make squeezing easier.However, there are some SERIOUS problems.First,do to the compound leverage design, you do have to open the handles WAY up to fit a normal sized half lemon in. So for people with smaller or weak hands: you're going to have to use 2 hands starting off because the handles will be so far apart.However, the real problem comes with the materials used in the design. A few pieces are made of glitzy looking polished metal, but the rest is made of very soft and weak plastic. The handles bend and flex and bottom out / touch each other before the fruit is even fully squeezed.After a few weeks of use the handles where starting to flex even more and seemed to be deformed.After about a month of use the plastic near the hindge cracked and the unit literally fell apart. Thanks to Williams Sonoma and there awesome customer service for letting me take...
