Motor quiet and strong, feels like would last forever. Had mine 6 yrs and been used every day, sometimes more than once a day. Nice sized spout for putting fruit/veg. Comes with good spatula that has a fork end, which is really useful for scraping out pulp. Sturdy heavy unit with non slip feet. Good additional citrus press.
Not easy access in grooves to clean the steel mesh filter. Parts are diswashable but mine seemed to crack, even my lid cracked, have had to replace various parts of mine (costly) several times but since motor is so good, I've not bought new machine. I feel that all the plastic components are not made very strong. Have various other things of theirs and the motors are always excellent but lids seem to crack easily and about £20 to replace.
For cleaning it, I'd say with 6 yrs constant use that you're better off rinsing it all out as soon as you've used it, this stops any fruit sticking and embedding on the parts. but the steel mesh filter is best off hosed out with hose on jet setting. It'll fire out all the bits and leave you soaked but the filter 'clean'! if you dishwasher it - it will also clean it but it fills the holes on other side of it with dishwasher grot/dirty water so beware when you take it out it'll need another rinse through. Magimix does juice very fast and easily though and is a heavy sturdy unit. The citrus press is super but you have to empty it out every 4 or 5 oranges. I have the chrome and black one and it wipes down and remains smart looking. Doesnt take up too much space. I shall miss it, but have to buy a new juicer now as I refuse to keep replacing the plastic parts. But that motor! It'll go forever...
