I bought this for myself this past spring after being frustrated with my Kitchen Aid attachment, which dribbled citrus juice all over me. The Breville was an investment, but it has become one of my favorite appliances, and I'm amazed by how frequently I use it. We love citrus mixed drinks, and this makes margaritas, mojitos, etc. a pleasure to make and consume. I find that guests appreciate fresh-squeezed juice in the morning, and this is very easy to do with this machine. I bought a lot of gadgets and appliances this year, and this was #1. I use it for all sizes of citrus, and it handles the both everything from limes to grapefruit very well. We like pulpy juice, so we use the larger-holed strainer, which gives us the amount we like. We do enjoy the fact that the machine feels solid and sturdy and is easily disassembled for cleaning in the dishwasher. It comes out looking gorgeous every time and is easily put back together again. I can't imagine being without this on my counter!
