I did not use this juicer as much as I intended, and only for juicing standard vegetables and fruit. Then the motor died. My husband called the company and they said that we should have replaced grinding basket once a year if used occasionally and every six months if used often. Really? They offered to replaced same model for $250.00 or repair for $127.00. An appliance like this should last much longer and only had 1 yr. warranty. I will try to find juicer not made in China.

High Quality Machine
This juicer is very heavy (a clue to the durability of the motor) well made and designed and easy to use and very, very easy to clean! That last ones important! I was so impressed with how heavy and solid it is...It reminds me of an old power tool, the ones that were built to last a lifetime! Great Juicer, I highly recommend you check this model out when comparing to other more flimsy, mostly plastic light weight ones.
