Citrus Juicers by Black & Decker
Black & Decker citrus juicers are practical, no-fuss, easy-to-use appliances. Made of quality plastic, these lightweight, compact citrus presses occupy little space.
The CitrusMate Juicer CJ01 consists of the following parts:
The CJ01 citrus press plugs into a standard electric outlet. The unit comes with 2 bi-directional cones for different fruit sizes. The cones turn right and left during operation which is normal.
Motor stops automatically if you lift the fruit from the cone or when manual pressure is released. The juicer doesn’t have an On/Off switch, the hand pressure starts the motor.
The pitcher can hold 1 liter juice. Grip the handle of the pitcher and lift it up off the juicer’s base. You can cover the pitcher with the juice in it with the dust cover should you want to keep it in the fridge (though it’s best to drink it right away so that the vitamins and other nutrients don’t get destroyed by oxidation).
Cleaning is simple.
Using the Citrus Juicer
If you don’t like manual washing up than place the cones, pitcher, strainer on the top rack of the dishwasher and let the machine do the cleaning.
Price: The Black & Decker CitrusMate CJ01 juicer costs cc. $15 – $20. It comes with full 1 year warranty (in the US and in Canada).

Black & Decker Fruit and Vegetable Juicing Machines
Apart from citrus presses Black & Decker also offers some great budget vegetable and fruit juice extractors which are centrifugal units:
Black & Decker JE 1200 Juicer
This unit juices many types of fruits (apples, citrus fruits, pineapple) and veggies (carrot, beetroot, celery). The centrifugal jucier does jucing quickly. It separates the pulp from the juice automatically into a plastic container ensuring continuous juicing. The fresh juice flows into a 16-oz. (480 ml) plastic jar.
This is a cheap juicer that is good for basic juicing tasks but there are other better equipped units on the market. Cleaning this model is a bit tedious and the small feeding chute requires you to cut the produce into tiny pieces.
The safety latches prevent unwanted start of the appliance since it can be started only if the lacthes are securely clamped into place.
Price: cc. $22 – $30. 1 year limited warranty.
