We processed a kilogram each of carrots, apples and oranges — and a “green leafy” combination of spinach, kiwifruit, pear, cucumber, mint and celery. We measured the quantity of juice produced and checked its texture and consistency. If a juicer claimed to be able to make smoothies, we made a banana, pineapple, mango and strawberry smoothie. The smoothie score doesn’t contribute to the juicing score.
We assessed how easy and safe it was to “feed” the juicer, assemble and take apart, collect the juice, remove the pulp, and clean the juicer. We also checked whether juice dripped out of the spout after processing, and whether there was any splashing or leaking while juicing. We also measured how noisy the juicers are but this doesn’t contribute to the overall score.

Easy to use and very easy to clean
Pulp ends up in the juice which I don't like. Gets jammed very easily
Maybe, it depends on what you're after.

Large opening allows larger items to be mixed without slicing, equals less time in prep. Good for fruit and vegetables. Extracts lots of juice, as the pulp is very dry on exit. Juice lasts well in the fridge afterwards. Easy to clean.
A very small amount of the pulp joins the juice in the juice jug, while some juicers leave just the juice, but not a biggie
Yes, I recommend this product.
