The most appaling device I ever bought. Impossible to clean properly. After 2 juices it has to be dismantled as there is no outlet for the pulp. So the pulp eventually gets mixed with the juice. Bought it in April, binned it September. Eventualy the blade got stuck. I didn't even bother to complain as I didn't want to waste more time on such a useless device.Extremely heavy motor. Totally not worth it. Total rip off. I was fooled by the swanky website and online demo. Don't be!
I just bought... (read more)

The Magimix Duo Juicer is rubbish. It does not extract all the juice in orangesand it takes forever! In fact I tried putting the wet pulp back in and managed to extract more juice. There are no instructions on how long it should take to juice so I was leaving it on for several minutes....not happy with electricity overusage.
I was so disappointed with it's performance (also difficult to clean the pulp basket as it has a half inch lip) that I subscribed to a month's WHICH report. Wished I... (read more)

I am surprised to read that most people omitted to mention a huge design fault with this product, the fact that this machine starts vibrating violently and uncontrollably, in random spurts once being used. We first thought this was when the container was full of waste or fibre, but it is not so, it can be at any time of operation. My wife basically has given up using it; which is a shame as she is vegetarian and relies on it. I have just bought her the new Philips for her birthday, costing... (read more)

This Magimix 14112 'Le Duo' Juice Extractor did a fair job of juicing, both with the feed and with the citrus juicer. With large quantities of juicing going on, you need to make sure to remove the pulp from the drum every so often. The plastic scraper they provide is actually the right shape, though I always wished they could have designed this differently somehow.
My problem with the machine is that plastic locking pieces started falling off after a while and had to be carefully reattached... (read more)

The Magimix looks a solid, quality juicer, and it works well up to a point. Like many of the reviewers, we find it difficult to clean properly.
Just after the three year guarantee ran out, a small plastic collar that holds the top assembly in place on the motor unit, broke free so that the top assembly could no longer locate positively. It rendered the machine unuseable. The juicer was used infrequently, and was not abused in any way, yet the part broke.
The cost of repair for fitting... (read more)

I am not going to lie. This Magimix 14112 'Le Duo' Juice Extractor is a rock solid, sturdy piece of apparatus that seems like it could take quite a beating. There's no faulting the motor or the quality of the materials used and most importantly of course, it makes real nice juice!! However.....
... the fact that this product is so difficult and time consuming to clean, for me, completely negates every good thing I can say about it. The manufacturers have simply put zero thought into the... (read more)

The Magimix 14112 'Le Duo' Juice Extractor is nice and sturdy, but a nightmare to clean. The drum has a plastic ledge that makes it almost impossible to clean all the pulp out of.
The pulp builds up inside the drum, and needs emptying regularly if you make a lot of juice.
I would not have bought this juicer, if I had tried it first. (read more)

I bought the Magimix 14112 'Le Duo' Juice Extractor two years ago. It is fantastic, easy to use and clean which means you are more likely to use it. It also comes with the approval of my sister-in-law who has a small child so it is good for family use. (read more)

We bought the Magimix 14112 'Le Duo' Juice Extractor from the Good Food Show this year. There was limited choice and we were not sure how often we would use it so did not want to spend too much on our first juicer. This juicer was reasonably priced, looked quite good and seemed easy to use. To date we have used it every day and it is easy to make a juice in a couple of minutes. Next time though, I would probably spend a bit more money and shop around a bit first. (read more)

I bought this Magimix Juicer two years ago and I have been very pleased with it's ease of use, to the extent that I have used it every morning to juice apples for my children's breakfast. I don't usually buy 'appliances' such as food blenders etc as they take up too much space and don't get used because I hate washing all the fiddly bits. The reason why I bought this was the drum claimed to be dishwasher -proof. I soon found it wasn't - the drum is part plastic, part metal, and when it... (read more)
