I have had this juicer for about a year now, and feel that it is worth it. Honestly, it is not that hard to clean up. It seems durable enough when used (average at least 2-3 times a week), and so far no problems.
This is my first juicer and overall I am satisfied. There is enough juice extracted that I am not upset about wasting money. I understood going into this that there is clean up involved. But the whole things usually only takes about 5-7 minutes.
After 3 weeks the motor died and I assumed that I would get satisfaction from the life time warranty they advertised. Upon reading the fine I discovered it was very misleading. In order to enforce the warranty you must pack the juicer and ship it across country at your expense.
I juiced my carrots and the machine clogged up and the motor stopped (from literally 5 carrots!) The next time the apple skin clogged the machine and again it stopped.
I was given this Power Juicer for Christmas. I used this everyday. The beginning of April, the motor burnt out. I only juiced what the book said I could juice.
I wish I had researched juicers before I blindly followed someone's advice to buy this. Why anyone would waste their money I don't know.
I've had this juicer for 2 1/2 years and never had a problem with it. It dissembles easily enough (I think 5 pieces?) and takes about 5 minutes to clean from completely dirty to clean.
My unit started leaking horribly after only a few uses. More juice now leaks out the sides than comes out of the spigot. Waste of money.
Buyer Beware! Biggest rip off on the market. Yes lifetime warranty- Ours broke after one use and they will send out a new part for 30 dollars. That is not lifetime, only if your life lasts 60 days. After 60 or 90 days it is going to cost you more money.
Some fruits need to be cut to fit, others need to be peeled, and some you need to remove the seed, but other than that this is a wonderful appliance to have in your home if you are considering juicing.
