The Great: It's a good juicer, easy to use, does a good job very well on hard fruit and veg such as apples, pears, and carrots. Quality materials, sturdy build, and not as noisy as thought. The not-that-great: Not that easy to clean as on commercials. The fruit leftover doesn't all go into the canister, and you need to clean everything right after juicing otherwise it gets stuck there. It only takes 2-3 minutes though. Also it's not so great on the softer or smaller fruit like plums or... (read more)

I highly recommend the Philips HR1861 Aluminium Whole Fruit Juicer, for it's robust, but polished design.

I gave this Philips HR1861 Pro juicer as a gift to my wife, concious that she is not as fond of gadgets as I am but the fact is that we both love it.
The juicer, which I bought at John Lewis to the same prices as many of the internet stores comes with the juice-master book by Jason Vale. If you look beyond the fact that the book is undoubtedly sponsored by Philips there are some very interesting recipees in here.
Anyways the juicer: It is made of brushed aluminium and thus matches our... (read more)

This juicer is great, it's easy to clean if you clean it straight after use, just don't leave it. All the parts come apart easily. I read somewhere that people find it hard to get the cutting blade out, but if you remove the whole shoot the blades come with it. It even comes with a book to tell you ways to make loads of drinks.

I use my Philips HR1861 Pro juicer 2- 3 times a day and its fantastic, before this model i had a Jack LaLanne juicer which was good but didn't get as much juice out of fruit and veg as the Philips does. It's so easy to clean as well either in the sink or in the dishwasher. (read more)

We have had the Philips HR1861 Pro Juicer for around 9 months. My wife used it daily for some weeks. It has not been used for months now, and I consider we are food-health conscious people. I tried to use it myself a few times in this last week, to take advantage of the quantity of apples in the garden. I am far from impressed. The assembly is fussy and illogical. The cutter refuses to be disabled by hand, and needs 2 screwdrivers (or spoon handles) to lever it out. Cleaning is a nightmare.... (read more)
