Acme Juicer Model 6001
- Product Review (submitted on September 1, 2011):
I love Acme juicers. I've used the same brand for 30 years now. The design doesn't change, and the juicer still uses the same accessories and parts. That's a rare thing nowadays. This is a big and heavy appliance. (Things that last so long should be, really.) Once you put it down, it won't budge. This machine is quieter than others. It takes a while for the basket to reach full speed, but this juicer makes up for that with the extra-large pulp basket, which is perfect if you have big hands. The lid lock on this juicer is better with then any other–the Acme juicer I've owned for several years now has a lid that has been opened and closed 4000 times, and it's still secure.
This juicer will easily produce a couple large glasses (about 2 16-oz glasses) of juice before the pulp container needs to be cleaned. Other reviews claim that the basket is harder to clean then pulp ejectors, but in my experience I have to disagree. The basket isn't slanted, so pulp can't grip the sides, I've never had to use a brush. Water and my hands work fine.
Acme juicers are the standard. Unlike some of the foreign-made juicers that are so popular now, you'll be able to pass this machine on to your children and grandchildren and the parts will still be available. I hope this helps those weighing their options. Compare this one to an Omega!
