Easy to Use, Small Size, Difficult to cleanThis is a simple gadget with few parts, and easy to assemble. I have a picture of it next to my electric hot water flask, so you can see it is not a big gadget. It is also very stable as the suction pads at the base is very effective.
My first try was using carrots and celery. Its fast, not noisy, stable on the table top. I do my review in simple Q&A format.
Q1. What is the quality of the juicing?
I found some pulp in the liquid juice, so the filtration is not very good.
Q2. Is the juicing effective?
I felt the pulp and it feels a little damp, and when I squeeze the pulp between my fingers there was still some juice. So this is not the very good top end type machine where extraction is close to 95-99%.
Q3. Is it easy to clean after the juicing?
For most of the parts of this machine, it is a quick rinse. However, it is really tough the wash the metal filter part, took a lot of water to rinse out the pulp between the metal filter mesh; and still it is not fully clean. This is a problem since the remaining fruit pulp there would rot and contaminate the filter and future juicing.
Q4. Easy for day to day use?
The cleaning of the filter takes up too much time and water when doing a single serving of juice. May not use it on a daily basis.
Q5. Best about machine
Very compact, easy to use. If you need a simple small machine, this is a good gadget to have.

Be healthy with fruitsEase of cleaning is a very important factor for me and is the primary basis of this review. 1) Cup is lower than the sprout and the juice that came out do splatter on the surrounding.
2) 4x suction pads are cumbersome if you are the type who store & only take out the juicer when required. We do not have a lot of kitchen table top space to have the luxury to have the juicer as a permanent item.
3) Motor is strong and definitely adequate to shred all types of fruits & vegetables. Sound of motor is quite loud - typical with all juicer. Only 1 speed, I was hoping for both low & high.
4) Stainless steel mesh sieve & cutter very well built & easy to clean.
5) See thru (to know if full) pulp container good enough for 2-3 people portions
6) Top opening is quite small, still have to push hard with regular size apples cut into 4.
7) Plunger does drip with juice when removing to insert new fruits.
8) Missing item 2 funnel thus unable to provide evaluate.
9) 2 ears lock relatively easy to operate lock & unlock.
Overall happy with the experience at this price point. Can see potential for improvement to improve the product.

So Easy to JuiceI've seen other reviews about this juicer that hadn't been verynice, but the truth is, I had a good experience with this juicing machine! I love the power, the speed, and the apple juice tasted SO good even with carrot! The juicing process is so quick and smooth.
Tip: Do cut the fruits to at least the length of the feeding chute, otherwise it will swing around and cause you to spill some precious juice on the counter! I made the mistake by trying to push a long carrot stick down the chute so please do not repeat my mistake!
Otherwise this is a very good machine, safe to use!
I also didn't like the idea of throwing away my apple pulp & carrot puls, so I turned them into muffins :D That's an idea for you. Apple pie style can work as well, just search for a recipe that calls for the use of the pulp that you've juiced.
If you're environmentally friendly like me, here's another tip: separate the pulps if you can, then you have the freedom of the kind of recipe you would want to use it for. If you juiced vegetables like celery and other greens, you can still use the pulp to make vegetable stock!

Day with HR 1832/00Love the suction cup at the base of the motor as it helps to hold the juicer in place. Assembly of the parts are very easy without even reading the manual.
Started the day with 2 oranges, 1 carrot and 2 pieces of ginger.
The motor sound is loud but it is still softer than other juicer that i have used before.
The oranges was juice out quickly with little pup.
Next the carrot, just as easy as the orange and the push handle help to ensure that the carrot is fully juice out.
The ginger was a bit trickery as it is hard and required a bit of effort to juice out the ginger.
The pup container can easily holds the 2 oranges, 1 carrot and 2 gingers in a single spin.
Dismantling the juicer for cleaning is quick and easy and no spill and mess of the pup.
Emptying the pup container was easily done and washing the filter/blade was very easy without the need of brush.
A wider opening on the top would be great. I had to cut the oranges into halves before it can fit the hole.
Overall, a good juicer with minimum pup in the juice.

EZ Juicer to Use But Hard to CleanThe juicer is fairly easy to assemble with just a few parts to put together and start using. No fuss at all since there isn't a need to refer to any manual for assembly. During use, the machine is stable in that it doesn't shake about "violently" or appears as if it will topple over. In terms of noise generated during its use, I think it is generally acceptable though my wife and child commented that it was too loud for their sensitive ears.
In my opinion, the funnel in which the fruits are dropped into the juicer could be larger so that less cutting needs to be done. Apart from this, the cleaning of the filter and blade are not as straightforward as I hope to be. Some effort and care is definitely needed.
As for the quality of the juice extracted, I believed that it is not quite up to standard. Not all the juice were extracted as I could feel that the pulp is still "wet".

Using The Viva Collection JuicerA simple Juicer compact machine with a few parts that allows me to assemble easily. It is compact enough and it does not take up space. It is has a powerful processor that sometime splatters while doing grinding. And it is also a bit loud during operation.
The suction legs is strong and changing location makes it troublesome. However, the suction legs prevent the Juicer from toppling over.
I am a person who wants my kitchen to be neat with less things and keep things when not in use.
The filtration is not good enough for I found some pulps in the juice. The machine did not squeeze the fruits completely. It left some more juice in the fruits.
Rinsing is quick and easy but not so on the metal filter. It needs more time and water cleaning the pulps from the filter.
It is suitable for those who use it daily or regularly. It is a good juicer to have but not a must have.

Basic juicerThis is a basic juicer that did not impressed me but my child still enjoyed the juice. Simple addition to my kitchen appliance just because we do not have one.
1. Easy to assemble. No trouble in putting the parts together.
2. Suction bottom. The suction’s at the base of the machine helped to hold the machine in place, kept it stable.
1. Noisy. It is quite loud when turned on.
2. Messy. The sprout that the juice comes out from tends to splutter everywhere so a tall glass is needed to avoid the mess.
3. Difficult to clean. The filter was tough to clean thoroughly but the rest of the machine was easy to clean.
4. Separation of juice. The rotor spins very quickly that leads to the separation of juice, that you do not see in slow juicer. Some chunks of fruits also ended up in the juice collected.

Philips Juicer HR1832Juicer is in a very compact and portable size and does not takes up a lot of space on the counter top which is great!
The sound of the juicer is quite loud in my opinion, which I assume could be due to the powerful motor as it takes less than 3 seconds for it to juice a quarter slice of Apple. Definitely kids friendly and a fun way for kids to be involved in the kitchen, my 4 years old did all the juicing!
I’m loving the thoughtful design of the juicer too! The bottom of the juicer has 4 suction pads which could keep the juicer steady and firm on the counter top, need not worry that any clumsy adults/kids would topple it accidentally.
Lastly, it does not filter out as clean as I expect from the powerful motor. I did found pulps/skin in the juice and had to manually filter it out again.
