I usually like to ‘live’ with a product for awhile before posting any sort of review. We’ve been using our Tribest Citrus Juicer for about 3 months now. There really is not much to say other than it does exactly what I expected a citrus juicer to do… it reams citrus fruits very fast, very efficiently, very safe and easy to use, a really powerful motor, simple quick clean-up and it looks good. Excellent plastics materials used in construction and its a simple, smart design. It might be a little more expensive than many of the other citrus juicers currently in the marketplace but you can be sure you won’t be disappointed. When searching for a citrus juicer I read quite a few reviews and it seems weak motors were the biggest single complaint with most of these electric citrus juicers. However I gathered from the reviews about this Tribest Citrus Juicer that a weak motor would definitely NOT be an issue and then when I considered the relatively small price difference for a juicer with a more powerful and reliable motor it really was a no-brainer decision for me. So today, after 3 months of everyday use (sometimes twice a day) squeezing 4-5 oranges and a grapefruit at a time (enough juice for two) I can comfortably come forward and recommend this juicer as a durable, quality kitchen appliance that looks good enough to leave out on the counter and you wouldn’t mind using it everyday.
Okay time for an update… I’ve owned this thing now for 3-1/2 years. I juice a whole bag of oranges pretty much once a week… and have been doing it this way for the last 3 years. I know I’m suppose to stop and wait after every few oranges to give the motor time to cool down especially since I’m doing such large batches of oranges at a time but I don’t… and today this juicer works exactly like it did when it was new. When juicing several oranges at a time, occasionally between the stopper and the hole above the spout it will clog with pulp but a simple close and reopen of the spout gets the juice flowing again… if this is too much of a hassle you can just remove the silicone stopper from the spout, flip it over and re-install it upside-down and the juice flow will never stop however you do sacrifice the stop-flow function when the spout is in the up position. The motor is as strong as it ever was and the auto switch that turns on the reamer when you push an orange against it works just like it always has (I was sure this would eventually be the weak link in the unit but so far it hasn’t been)… the stainless steel pulp strainer shows no rust anywhere and none of the plastic parts are stained or cracking, heck even the white exterior of the plastic hasn’t begun yellowing yet. In summary… here it is 3-1/2 years later, I’m still juicing and so far so good with this juicer… I can still recommend it.
Apparently from reading other reviews here, a few people do not seem to be aware that there are two reamers nested together… There is a larger reamer snapped over a smaller reamer… they easily pull apart. The larger reamer is use for grapefruit and oranges, while the smaller reamer is used for lemons and limes. You must take them apart for rinsing after juicing otherwise you’ll find mold eventually beginning to grow between the reamers.
