Compact, attractive and durable, the powerful Acme centrifiugal extractor gets high marks for the amount and quality of its juice as well as its relatively easy cleanup. In fact, users say its residue is so dry that juice yields are 20 percent to 35 percent greater than the slightly more convenient automatic pulp-ejection models. Because juicing is fundamentally a messy business, ease of cleanup is a major selling point, especially among serious, regular juicers. Equipped with a rugged 1/4-horsepower motor and stainless steel housing and backed by a long warranty, the Acme delivers enough power to extract juice from a wide range of fruits and vegetables (a citrus attachment is required for orange juice). Its relatively high rpm can heat juices - problematic for those concerned about oxidation and/or storing fresh juices.
Acme makes several other centrifugal models, including the slightly less expensive (and plastic) 5001 and 7001. All accept the optional citrus attachment ($75 list), which transforms the Juicerator's 3,600 rpm into sufficient torque to squeeze citrus fruits. Acme also makes a machine specifically for citrus juicing - the Acme Citrus Juicer. Acme is made by Waring.

Our last Acme lasted over 30 yrs. It was still running, just a little rough. I expect this one to outlast me.
from Oroville, CA
This juicer has lots of power, is compact, easy to use and clean. I have juiced apples, carrots, celery and other vegetables with great results. This machine is everything that it says it is. The only draw back is that you have to stop juicing to remove the pulp left behind. There isn't a seperate place for pulp to go, it stays inside the machine until it builds up and you have to stop to clean it out. Other than that I love the amount of juice it produces and how fast it is to set up, use, clean and put away.
I would buy this product again

I've wanted this particular juicer for years, and now I finally have one. I use it every morning to make my green juice, can really tell the difference in energy level, if I stick with my vegi-juices, verses your typical morning fast meals to go, or non at all, so much more alert and ready to face what the day may throw my way, people complain about the clean up, but I find it takes little time or effort to clean. It really pulls all of the juice from anything that you put into it, leaving a pulp which is barely moist, the pulp is put into my compost and also given to my chickens. I truly can not think of any reason why not to own this juicer, it's made to last for years, not cheesy like so many I've seen and owned.

Perfect juicer for me
By Simone, artist and foodie
from Key West, FL
I use this juicer almost every day. I had borrowed one from a friend for 3 months and fell in love with it. Finally had to buy one for myself! I like using the filters as it makes clean up very fast. If I do not use a filter and am too pressed for time to clean it immediately, I just drop it in a big bowl of water and then clean it later. Just don't let the basket dry out with the fibers still inside!
