Cuisinart CCJ-500 juicer review – Pulp Control Citrus Juicer for family

The Cuisinart CCJ-500 Pulp Control Citrus Juicer is the ideal option for a fast orange juice. Its package also handles grapefruit, lemons, and lime and can be a good option if you`re looking to boost your Vitamin C levels. Those who aren’t big fans of juicing other fruits and vegetables aside from citruses may still want a modern juicer’s look in their kitchen even if they don’t want to splurge for the actual product.

Cuisinart CCJ 500 juicer review

It should be a decent juice yield, didn’t create tons of pulp, also costs of the related as the other juicers, but we watched forward to using the Pulp Control the slightest. The “super juice” feature ended up being a bit more trouble than it is worth, this model lacks a cord wrap, and the universal, one-size-fits-all reamer turned out to not fit the smaller citrus fruits.

Design

Sporting a stainless steel body with a brushed finish, the CCJ-500 is a modern looking unit that will perfectly fit in any contemporary kitchen. It also doesn’t hurt that this citrus juicer is very compact.

It only measures 6.8 x 7.9 x 12.2 inches so it won’t take up a lot of room inside your cupboards or even in your kitchen counter. This makes it great for homes with limited space, letting you eat healthier also if you need to live small.

Clean-up?

The entire top piece comes off, making it simple to clean.

Immediately after use, rinse. You may need a scrub brush if there’s a lot of pulp residue.

If you wait to clean it until the pulp is dry and crusted on, yeah, then it will require more soaking and scrubbing. But immediate cleaning is a breeze.

The parts are also dishwasher safe.

The base doesn’t even get splattered, but you can wipe it with a clean cloth if needed.

Final-Spin Feature

What performs the Cuisinart citrus juicer stand out from other juicers in its price range is its Final-Spin feature. This is the unit’s capacity to turn and squeeze the pulp left on the reamer and filter, making you get every last drop available in your fresh produce.

It’s easily initiated by placing the area cover and using a bit of pressure on it, guaranteeing that there won’t be any wasted juice left in the unit.

Conclusion

While the Cuisinart CCJ-500 didn’t do everything that bad when it came to juice yield, the massive loss inconvenience with the need of a built-in container or an adjustable reamer execute it very hard to support this one, as we discovered the BLACK+DECKER also the Proctor Silex to be much more beneficial and cost a bit less.
