Consumer Reviews of Champion Juicers
It received good reviews and ratings (4.5 out of 5) on large online shopping sites (e.g. Amazon).
The motor and the whole appliance is very reliable even after many years of use. Due to continuous juicing and the well-engineered structure, it doesn’t get clogged. Many reviewers have their Champion unit for more than 15 years and the machine still works very well, without any having had to repair or replace parts.
Note: one problem a user observed is that the manufacturer doesn’t support older models really well- blades and accessories for discontinued models might be difficult to find.
The pulp is dry enough but you can run through it once more to extract the residual juice. The Champion 2000+ doesn’t juice wheatgrass and is not as good at juicing green leaves or herbs as other juicers (twin gear machines), so it is not recommended for raw food eaters and strict vegans.
Juicing citrus fruits with the Champion gets a rather frothy juice.
Although juicing is messy with the Champion (it is with most other juicers) but the clean up is really uncomplicated.
The machine is rather bulky and has a utilitarian style (the newer models have more contemporary, sleeker design), and the plastic covered parts do get stained.
All in all Champion juicers worth the price although it sure has some weaknesses, but it works as it is advertised by the manufacturer. Great for uninterrupted juicing because you can throw in larger pieces of produce without having to stop to remove pulp or to clean the appliance.
