This is the second juicer in two weeks that I have broken with my bare hands. The other one, identical brand, I snapped off at the base of the upright, and tore through the cast metal of the base. I forgot to take a photo of it, but you'll just have to take my word for it, that it was much more dramatic.
Either I am Superwoman, or this brand is cheaply made.
I've had to resort to using the good old squeeze type (made in Mexico) that I bought at the Fielddays.
