models like the Big Mouth Pro 67650 are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.
This is based on the amount of juice each juicer produced from a given starting weight for apples, oranges, carrots, and tomatoes.
How easy each juicer was to use, assemble and disassemble, and clean.

Juice container Model has a juice container to catch the juice.

I have owned this juicer for about three weeks and have used it 3-4 times per week. Basically I think it performs well. I make a large enough quantity of juice at one time for 2 days. It does best with leafy greens, celery, carrots, cucumbers, peppers, etc. but has difficulty with apples, possibly due to the tougher skin? I have not tried a whole small apple but doubt that it would handle it well as 1/4 size sections often result in some larger pieces of apple/skin being shot into the pulp container. For citrus, a small amount of citrus juice collects in the plastic piece holding the blade basket, but this really is not a big deal. <br />My major dislike it that the pulp container does not have a good fit so pulp leaks out the top front side of it. I have to push the container against the unit as it juices to eliminate the problem. The pulp also collects on the plastic part that covers the pulp container (at the same location of the leak) and has to be cleaned out several times when making double batches of juice. <br />I do not use a bag in the pulp container as my husband likes the pulp for compost. He takes the pulp container and all the parts that need to be cleaned (with the exception of the blade basket) and dumps/washes them outside with the hose. Then the dishwasher does the rest.<br />For my first juicer, it works well for the price.

Good & Bad
Easy to clean
Easy to put together
I have owned this unit for almost 2 years but didn't really start using it till a couple of months ago because I thought the clean-up was too much work. But once I got into a rhythm, it became much easier (especially putting a sack into the pulp container). But...today the plastic post that is attached to the strainer basket broke and will not attach. Without that, the whole machine is lost. Not sure how it broke but since it is plastic, it would be weaker than steel or other metals. Will not buy another of this brand.

Inexpensive and works well
Easy to use, does a great job of getting the juice out and leaves very little in the pulp. We have been juicing at least twice a day, losing weight and feeling better so this was a great gift. For the money you can't go wrong with it, my buddy has the same one and loves it too.
