My family and I have jumped on the health conscious bandwagon. We purchased the Breville too soon after reading several reviews online and saw that it was the best choice for us...at the time. However, after a few uses with the Breville juicer I have had a slight change of heart. The Breville juicer makes delicious juices but that's not because of the actual appliance. I can thank the delicious fruits and veggies for that. The pulp does not get disintegrated all the way. Which leaves me with having to use a lot of fruits and veggies for a small amount of juice. On top of that, the noise is so loud. I mean, I expected itto make a little noise but I literally have to scream over across the kitchen when we are juicing. I gives this appliance an 8, because you get what you pay for and it isn't a terrible juicer, by no means. I just would recommend a little investment for better quality.
