Black & Decker CJ625
The Black & Decker CJ625 is a 30-watt electric citrus juicer with 34-ounce capacity. Its auto reversing reamer provides maximum juice extraction to cater your everyday juicing needs. It is equipped with standard-size cone, adjustable pulp control, strainer and stirrer. The juicer has drip-free pour spout eliminating possible drip problems while juicing. The cord wrap and dust cover provides better storage.
Actually I’m not totally happy with this juicer. But according to juicer reviews, it does works well. I just wished it could work better. I have never used a juicer before. This juicer cost me $20, so it’s quite a bargain. What I like about it is that it has compact size that makes it easy for storage. It doesn’t take so much space and it’s easy to clean, which is really a plus. Again, my concern is that the motor should’ve been stronger. While operating this, I had a hard time pressing while not changing the rotation. The top lid is also not secure, it just sits on.
It’s been a while that I have been using this juicer. It still performs just the same when I first used it. I used to make 3 32oz glasses full or more with this juicer.
It’s just that when I operate this juicer, I feel like there is so much wastage. Sometimes it doesn’t strip the oranges efficiently and some juicy pulps are in the holder. What I did is to press down the pulp using a spoon to get the juice out of it.
With regards to the noise created by this juicer, well I find it similar to my previous juicer. So I can say, I have been used to the noise so it is not a big deal for me. The adjustable pulp flow feature seems to be a good idea, but for those who don’t like pulp on their juice like me, I’d rather not have one.
But overall, the juicer does perform the job well. It is easy to manage and clean. Come to think of it I had bought this for about $14. With the performance and price, I must say it’s a great deal!
