This is the first juicer I have ever purchased. I have had it for a few weeks now.
I thought I would first buy an inexpensive juicer. After some research I felt that I would be wasting money on produce by not extracting enough juice and having wet pulp or wasting time by juicing the pulp again. I decided on the masticating juicer to reduce oxidation of the produce. After seeing the prices of the "inexpensive" juicers I really felt they are not worth the money.
The juice from this machine is excellent, very dry pulp and very little foam, not much sediment either. You could strain the juice if you want, but I find it just fine how it comes from the machine.
I have juiced a variety of berries, fruits and vegetables, with no problems. I alternate the stringier produce (cut up) with the hard ones and it works just fine.
I read some reviews about difficult cleaning, but I find just the opposite. The metal filter is the most time consuming ( pineapple seems to be the worst) but even then the little brush you get with the machine works great under running water. I fill my sink with warm soapy water before I begin juicing, I compost the bulk of the pulp, rinse the excess stuck in the machine in the garburator and then plop it all in the soapy water and basically swish my cloth on the parts and rinse.
It is a very nice solid machine, beautiful on my counter. I had company yesterday and three people randomly commented on how nice it was.
I have not used the mincer attachment yet.
I juice 4 to 5 times a week. I don't follow any specific recipes, put whatever I like in it and add some new stuff. So far I have not made any thing I didn't like.
I would highly recommend this machine, so far I have no cons.
