If you’ve spent any amount of time on this site looking at reviews and trying to find the best juice extractor, you’ll know the hierarchy. Masticating juicers rank as the best type of kitchen juicers you can buy, then centrifugal juicers.

The Juice Extractor is a centrifugal juicer but that doesn’t mean it isn’t worth your time and money. If time and money are concerns – meaning you don’t have a bunch of either to spare – then chances are you’ll end up buying a centrifugal model like the Cuisinart CJE-1000. This is a 1000w, 5-speed juice extractor so it has plenty of power when faced with juicing your fruits and vegetables.

This model also has some cool, not to mention unique features, one being a foam management system that allows you to adjust the amount of foam produced by means of a filter disk. It also comes with its own juice pitcher for storage.

 

Cuisinart Juice Extractor Pros and Cons

Pros: Powerful 1000 watt motor – 5-Speed – Foam Control – Storage Pitcher – Quiet – Large 3 inch chute – BPA Free

Cons: Some complaints of lots of juice in pulp but that could be because of using the wrong speed or not using fresh crisp fruit. Other than that, none to speak of.

 

One tip that has been suggested. The manual for the Hamilton Beach BigMouth Juicer suggests putting a plastic garbage bag inside the pulp container. The Cuisinart manual doesn’t mention it but some users have been doing this with success, thereby counting down on cleanup.

There is a problem when using this model that really isn’t its fault. The issue is the 5 speed capability and likely the user! I’m guessing that a lot of people don’t actually read the manual – because really all you do is put your produce in and then crank it to the highest speed, right? Wrong!! The manual clearly details that you need to use different speeds depending on what you’re juicing. Softer fruit and/or veggies should be juiced at the lower speeds and harder ones at a higher speed. For example, apples at speed 5 and grapes at speed 1. Softer should also be juiced before harder and if you are juicing herbs or leafy vegetable like spinach or kale, you should do that in the middle of a combination of other ingredients so as to get the most juice out of them. When I see complaints about extremely wet pulp left over, I think to myself, Hmm, did they read the manual?
