An affordable way to explore the world of juicing, this Black and Decker Citrus Juicer has a 32-ounce capacity and it has some of the best features available. It has an auto-reverse reamer that provides for the maximum in juice extraction and it is built to comply with all North American Electrical Standards.
This juicer also features a drip-free pour spout and a stainer and stirrer to provide the highest quality of juice. It also has a standard size cone that ideal for most fruit and the parts are easily disassembled for quick and easy cleaning. The electrical cord of this unit can be neatly tucked away in grooves that are built into the unit.
Despite its low price, you can expect this unit to function like other juicers on the market. Just slice the fruit in half, put in cut side down on the cone, and push the arm of the unit down on it and hold it. In just a few seconds juice will begin to run from the drip-free spout. It also runs fairly quietly for a juicer.
Ease of Use
Some reviews of this juicer noted that the pressure sensor of the arm is fickle, which leads to uneven rotation. When some users tried to do large batches of fruit at one time, juice became hot to the touch, so it is more suitable to small juicing jobs.
As long as this unit is not used for the mass production of juice and it maintained well, it will last for quite some time. The vast majority of reviews for this product are very favorable and reflect this. Since citrus fruit juice is acidic, it is very important to maintain this unit correctly to keep it functioning.
