Fed up with the mess and the lack of juicing I decided to Google "cleaning a juicer". I found the video below. When I saw how streamlined the Breville Juice fountain was and how quickly he was able to clean it I decided to buy one. The results from the juice fountain have been superb. We have been using it for about a year and a half and it is still juicing as well as it did on the first juicing and clean up is as easy as the video shows. I have very limited counter top space but the Breville juice fountain has certainly earned a permanent spot.
I only do two things differently from the video.
1. I always wipe down the lower half of the unit that houses the motor, including the underside, because juice will occasionally drip down there.
2. I never throw away the pulp! That goes into the compost bin for the garden.
