Sage by Heston Blumenthal the Nutri Juicer, Silver
Really easy to use and clean- I have made some great juices with this one as the 2 settings power through most fruit and veg! My fave is apple, ginger and carrot!!

Inspired to lose weight to get into a bridesmaid dress (plus the Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead documentary), I bought this juicer and have not been disappointed! 3 or 4 apples plus 1 lemon is my favourite recipe so far!
John Lewis delivered in super fast timing and I also ordered a Jason Vale book to support my new healthy lifestyle! Shame there is not a book of Joe Cross' for the price of it.
It is inconvenient to wash but I'd have to do that for oven cooking too, I use a carrier bag in the waste bin so I can minimize the washing up. It works perfectly and is water proof, and does not impinge the juicing at all. I now only juice at weekends so it will take a while for the novelty to wear off. Lost 8lbs in weight during the 3 day juicing plan of Joe Cross's so well pleased.

Bought this product solely to help me get healther. Definately get my 5 a day easily now and being a busy mum i dont find it a hassle at all. My friends have also bought this and done the 3/5 day juice detox and said they lost weight and felt great. It is an excellent produce. I was put off by thinking of the washing of it every time i used it but if you do it straight away it takes minutes.

Very easy to use
This juicer was an upgrade for me, having become fed-up of having to cut things up really small to get them in the chute of my previous one.
The fact that you can put whole fruit in here is a big plus for me - makes it really quick and easy to make juice. Whole apples, whole kiwis (yes, even the skin!). The two speed settings are good so that it's fine for softer items such as tomatoes and berries, and it can also cope with leaves such as spinach, watercress, herbs etc.
There is hardly any pulp waste, and what there is is fairly dry, so I'm happy that I'm getting the best from the fruit, and it's not really messy to clean up.
Of course, the cleaning is always the big drawback with a juicer, but this one is really not too bad! There are no annoying nooks and crannies that harbour bits of pulp, the basket is fairly easy to scrub (there's a little stiff brush included), and some parts can go on the top shelf of the dishwasher if you're desperate, but I just stick everything under the tap immediately and it's all done in just a couple of minutes.
The juicer also looks great! I'm very happy to have this sitting on the kitchen counter all the time, which makes me much more likely to use it.

We've used a juicer nearly every day for the last 5 years but as our previous make is now only available in the USA we bought this one by Sage, expecting to be slightly disappointed. However it's brilliant! It removes far more juice. Has no problems juicing chillies, mint , ginger etc as well as most fruit. Slower speed comes in handy for berries. Parts go in the dishwasher but my husband is so in love with it that he insists on washing it by hand so it looks perfect every time! Love this product and can't recommend it enough. Its not as quick as opening a carton but it is so worth the effort. Children think its great fun creating odd concoctions.

So much fruits and veg to use and only one cup of juice comes out. Gets rid of all the good stuff like fibre and u r left with so much and I mean so much rubbish!! Just not worth it.. its a lot cheaper to buy innocent smoothee

Easy to use and clean
I was tempted to buy this to make use of the glut of apples from my allotment this year. I'm usually wary of appliances, as sometimes they are more trouble to set and clean than they are worth, and tend to rely on knives, forks and spoons.
But this appliance is really worth getting. Easy to set up and use, easy to clean. And fresh juice, like really fresh fruit and vegetables, tastes so much better than the best you can buy!
If it continues to give good service, as I expect it will, given the guarantee that comes with it, then I am a very happy customer.
