We were given this juicer as a wedding gift 20 years ago and it is still working with perfect efficiency today. Amazing! One word of warning. Don't put the plunger in a dishwasher. The plastic is too soft and once it warps it wont fit into the feed tube anymore. Otherwise, this machine is easy to use. You don't have to take out seeds or peel off skins. The juicer filters them out for you. It is quite easy to use. Just turn it on and put the fruits and veggies in. It works better on harder veggies than leafy greens. Easy to clean. It only has 4 simple to clean and assemble parts. Highly recommended.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
