Review_Decker.png

Black & Decker

CJ625

It is an authentic juicer that allows juicing about 2-3 glass daily without causing any problem.  This machine comes with the smaller cone nested with the large one, with 30 watt motor.  The reverse action of the ream makes it more useful and takes out every drop of juice out of the fruit. This model suits best for them who loves lots of pulp in their juice.

  • Besides less durable it is quite effective in its action
  • It does not have extremely long life and heat up if you juice large batches of fruit at once

  • Strainer sometimes fails to filter seeds out of juice

The adjustable reamer can be set at three different settings; low, medium and high.  It will yield juice with pulp or with less pulp as per your requirements. Be aware that it won’t give you a 100 percent pulp free juice

  • Power and Noise- 3/5

It has got powerful motor and performs well when overused, but the downside is that it makes a loud noise.

  • Ease of use- 4/5

  • Price- 4/5

Anyone who loves fresh juice at low cost will adore this juicer. With this price, it is the best juicer one might get.

It is simple in design but heavy and built solid. It might occupy more space than other juicer, but its efficiency for juicing can overcome this setback.

  • Juice quality and Yield- 4/5

It can yield about 50 citrus fruits in 5 minutes, that how efficient this model is. It comes with two different reamers and allows you to juice any citrus fruits.   It also has a fine mesh strainer, which prevents clogging. For small batch, it might work fine, but for larger batch it might not be appropriate

This model is awesome if you speak about its power and noise. Beside having 70 watt motor it nearly makes no noise and gives a better result

Easily washable components, and can be cleaned within few seconds. Strainer, strainer holder, and reamer are easily washable but not dishwasher safe

Compare to other normal juicers, this is little expensive, and it might not fit in everybody’s budget. But it is perfectly ok for those who are looking for more durable product with same functions.
