Cuisinart CJE-1000 Review
Bursting forth with power, the Cuisinart CJE-1000 is propelled by a 1000 Watt powerful motor. It makes juicing easy and simple thanks to a wide mouthed 3-inch feed chute that can fit in pears, apples, vegetables, and plenty other large fruits. With a total of five-speed options, a quick setting control dial and a blue LED indicator, it’s got the looks to kill and the performance to impress. One touch of a button starts the juicing process and all you have to do then is watch as the juice trickles out of the flow spout into a glass.
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.
About the Cuisinart CJE-1000
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 halfway 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.
Ease of Use
Needs some amount of slicing and dicing before one can start juicing but once ready it is quick and efficient. Just take care to make the pieces small enough so that the juicer can handle it all at once.
Do not wait for later to clean the Cuisinart CJE-1000. This juicer isn’t that easy to clean if it is left to its devices. However, immediate cleaning is easy and quick as everything comes off in an instant. Just remember to be careful with the filters, they are a bit thin.
Not the best quality of juice but not bad either. If you aren’t a stickler for juice quality, are fine with foam on top and the inability to store juices in the fridge this juicer will do just fine for you.
Yield-wise, we felt the Cuisinart CJE-1000 did just as admirably as the Breville juicers we reviewed and hence it gets a good 4 stars for its extract, although rerunning the pulp through the juicer will yield nothing at all.
Plenty of raw power, so much that you can feel the unit’s vibrations through the feed chute. In fact, it has enough power to handle kale, spinach as well as hard veggies and fruits.
Thankfully, this centrifugal juicer is silent, in fact, it is the quietest of all the juicers we have reviewed on JuicerReviewsDirect.com.
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. It would be worth your time to check out Amazon.com to see what they’re currently offering on the Cuisinart CJE-1000 Juicer. With plenty in stock, you might be able to get it shipped out for free to your address in less than three days from Amazon.
