Motor burnt out aug 15th 2014. Very disappointing for the price. Sent off for warranty repair (good process) waiting for outcome. Despite this i found the juicer excellent in all other features. It is the 3rd juicer i have had and it was the best. Good amount of juice, easy to clean, better design with pulp collection (although ideally this could be bigger) and non drip spout.
Great juicer – 6month review. I have been using the juicer now for 6months 4-5days a week. It is a great product and it really does extract every ounce of juice out of the fruit/vegetable. I can get 4 glasses of juice from 4-5 large carrots, 2 apples, half cucumber, 2 celery sticks and handful of mint. On the small downside is that you should only juice one vegetable at a time. Do not put 2/3 carrots into the juicer. It really makes it work hard and slow down the blades which can easily blow the motor. Couple of tips, when juicing celery or rhubarb (which it can do), juice it last or open the top to remove any attached strands caught in the blade.

Very pleased with juicer, it’s absolutely brilliant, you can put all kinds of fruit down the extra wide shute , and some of the fruits don’t even need peeling the juicer sorts it out for you, it has an 800watt motor so it can handle most fruits and it not to loud either ,i did some checking on on juicers before i purchased this one by philips and it got great reviews i can see why now, as for cleaning i actually look forward to doing it believe it or not, it’s great so simple and quick, there are not that many parts to wash,, its really quick you can just rinse most of it off, i don’t know who likes it most me or my wife,our only regret is that we didn’t get one earlier ,we use it every day the juices we make are brilliant considering we are novices and they are actually good for us too,i definitely recommend this juicer by philips it’s great, and it even looks good to .
Philips Avance Collection HR1871/00 800 Watt Juicer in Brushed Stainless Steel : Good but not worth the price hike. I have been juicing for years and own the greenstar masticating juice as well as the older philips juicer. It is better than the older philips because it takes up less space and the pulp collection is cleaner and easier and it takes a few seconds less to clean. These benefits are minor and not worth the extra £140 so if you are a juiceaholic like me and are happy to spend the extra money then go for it but if you are at all unsure i would recommend the older and significantly cheaper model (about £59 atm).
