See our first impressions in this first look video review:
Using the Dualit Juice Extractor
At £99.95, the Dualit juicer isn't as expensive as some other top-end brands – and it delivered good juice when we gave it a try.
The Dualit Juice Extractor comes already assembled in the box, so setting it up is a doddle – choose a suitable spot in your kitchen and you're ready to go.
There are two speeds to choose from, depending on what you're juicing. These are easy to select and a green light shows which one is in use.
An extra-large feed tube means you can juice whole fruits, such as apples, if you wish to (but the instructions do warn about pips).
Dualit juicer in action
It was fairly quiet and smooth when juicing apples, pears, carrots and ginger, as well as oranges, lemons and limes.
We like the way the juicer slows down to stop, meaning you'll get a stream of juice even after you switch it off. We did notice a few stray drips, though.
Dualit claims the double filter produces juice without froth, but we did get some frothy juice. The juice container has a froth-filter lid, which we like, but we found it was only moderately effective and we had to pour the juice out slowly.
We've put 18 juicers through our full lab tests – check out our full juicer reviews to see which we rate as Best Buys.
Cleaning the juicer
Cleaning juicers is always a chore because their many parts and filters are fiddly. However, if you're prepared with a sink full of soapy water, this model isn't too onerous to clean.
All the removable parts were easily washed and the supplied brush really helps with cleaning the filter. You can wash these parts in the dishwasher but the instructions are quite specific about how.
To make it easier, always clean straight after use.
Pros: Juiced well, fairly quiet for a juicer, easy to use
Cons: Heavy, big, lots of parts to clean
