Excellent Juicer for this price
Frequency: I use this juicer everyday to create 1 gallon of veggie and fruit juice. This takes about 30 minutes total, assuming all the fruits and veggies are washed and dried. I have had this machine for over a month.
Types of ingredients:
Veggies include: carrots, celery, beet, kale, romaine lettuce, multi color peppers, ginger, cucumbers.
Fruits include: lime, lemons, apples, tangerines, oranges, pears, pineapples, kiwi.
Function: The hard roots (carrots and beet) will need to be chopped up to about 1" in diameter. Anything larger will jam the machine. Once I realized that, this machine has been functioning perfectly.
Cleaning: takes me less than 2 minutes to clean! The inlet piece is rinse only. The metal filters on the yellow basket must be scrubbed, but that takes 30 seconds. The cork screw inside is rinse only. Then there is the main container, which takes the longest to wash because the pulp outlet is small, and I have to insert the tail end of a spoon to pull out the pulp (this takes 20 seconds). I also attach a plastic bag, jammed in between the main container and the base of the machine. This is to collect the pulp into a bag for ease of disposal.
Overall: for this price, there is no other machine that can beat it. Most cold press machines are in the $299+ range. When in stock, I am buying another Bella Nutripro as a spare.

Was looking for a cold press juicer and found this one in Macy's. Had it about a year and a half , before it cracked .. call costumer services , they replace my juicer and I was so happy. Went out the same day and bought a toaster Oven and a Panini grill. Great company with great products, I love my juicer and if you are out there looking for one I say this one is a must ....

started out great!
This was a workhorse for about 8 weeks then....the auger would adhere to the bottom of the bowl and would take a lot of muscle and time to get it off for cleaning. I thought ok, I can live with this since I was satisfied with everything else. THEN a few weeks after that I put a carrot in which was cut down and it got stuck so I used the reverse gear - pretty handy. I can only guess in reversing it the auger came up and knocked the top out of alignment. No forward, no backward, couldn't open it equaled a dead machine.
Since I had it for 11 weeks I was really worried about retuning it since I bought it at Target.com. and obviously it had been used. I brought the remains to my local store with my receipt and they refunded me no problem! That was the BEST expereince of having this machine.
Now my search for another begins.....
