I bought this as a replacement to a very cheap one I bought from Amazon (that broke) and I must say, I am VERY happy. It isn't hugely expensive, as I don't presently earn much money but still want to juice and get healthier- but it's simple design, space saving size, efficiency and it is pretty quiet I'm sure will be as good as many that are more expensive. I find it very easy to take apart and clean, which is brilliant. I use it every day, some days twice a day. It manages well with all produce I put through from leafy green like parsley to roots like carrots. I was especially pleased not only with the juicer, but also the 'free gifts' that came with it. Not only do I now have a book thats included with the Omega juicer (by Omega) but I also have a book supplied by juicers.co.uk as well as a very sharp paring knife, board and vacuum jug which is just brill. The only thing that has made me give it 4 not 5 is the jug design. They are 2 square plastic tubs- which I find a bit ill thought. The one which goes under the juice spout is just a teeny bit too big and I find that some of the pulp will occasionally fall in. When I realised this, I then realised why a few times my juice has been too fibrous!! Keeping an eye on this, my juice is nice and smooth. The first jug could do with being a few mm smaller so that this doesn't happen (I have tried them around several different ways to no avail) However, this isn't a big enough reason to get cross or send it back- just something to be mindful of and ensure that the pulp is moved away from the pulp spout when falling into the pulp jug.
