This juicer comes with a filter basket embedded within that is easy to remove and clean thanks to the unlock and lift mechanism of the juicer. You may think that such a massive juicer would make a lot of noise but it’s actually super silent. Accessories accompanying the Cuisinart CJE-1000 include a 1 quart jug, 2 liter pulp container, cleaning brush and an instruction manual.
- Pros: Very silent and yet so powerful, this juicer is affordable and simple to handle.
- Cons: Not meant for juice connoisseurs neither for masticating juicer lovers.
When I did purchase the Cuisinart CJE-1000, I was in a conundrum because the reviews were mixed for this juicer. Some folks gave it a perfect 5 star on Amazon while others had branded it as a failure giving it two and at times one star. So, the moment it arrived, I got started with my trials. First up, I used apples and carrots together. Now, the chute design is such that a whole apple would not fit through it so I cut it into half and that fit in perfectly. But half way through, one of the halves got stuck at the bottom and I had to stop the juicer midway just to get it out. After this bitter experience, I cut the apple into quarters and tried again. Thankfully, this time around nothing got stuck. After guzzling through the carrots and apples I found the pulp to be slightly soggy in texture with probably half a glass of juice left in it. Deciding against common sense, I once again ran the pulp back through the juicer. Bad idea because it simply gets sucked out through the pulp ejection system without any output. So, yes it’s kind of disappointing considering the amount of juice it makes but on the brighter side of things, carrots got juiced just fine.
You may be wondering why some users gave it an appalling 1 star review. In my opinion it’s more like a 4 star product considering the price and what you get for it. I believe that many of the users were previously on a masticating juicer and were used to seeing drier pulp with easier operations. Having switched over to a quicker and centrifugal shredding juicer, most would have found the extra froth and slightly different taste repelling.

With around 3 apples and 10 carrots I managed to make 3 full cups of juice. And yes, all the while it worked without making a single noise so it is super silent as it says in the advertisement. Low RPM works well with soft veggies while for harder stuff the high RPM speeds are great.
Granted there are a few minor quirks with the Cuisinart CJE-1000 but nothing too major to make it a bad investment. At under $200, it has got plenty of power, lots of speed options and the ability to handle tough fruits and veggies. Basically, it is a versatile juicer designed for folks who plan on juicing everything available at their local deli.
