The ELEHOT 700 Watt Fruit & Vegetable Juice Extractor is an affordable juicer that doesn’t scream cheap. It’s a well-designed product which works as advertised.
If we’ll compare this product to other cheap juicers that I’ve reviewed. AICOOK AMR-516 is its closest contender in terms of features. However, I’m giving this round to AICOOK since it’s 30% cheaper and it is dishwasher safe.
Now let’s compare this juice maker to a dual-speed Breville speedster—the Breville Juice Fountain Plus. Needless to say, Breville has more to offer like a wider feeding chute and bigger pulp collector, but it’s way more expensive. This round goes to ELEHOT.
If you’re just starting out, this 2-speed centrifugal juicer is a decent choice. It can process dense produce and citrus fruits, and you can also throw some greens into the mix. This combo will yield you an impressive selection of delicious and nutrient-rich juices.

Features & Product Details
Is it Easy to Use?
It will only take you a minute or two to assemble the (six parts of the) ELEHOT Juicer. That includes everything, including the juice jug. Once the safety clamp is locked in place, you are good to go.
Its wide feeding chute amplifies its overall usability. You don’t need to spend a lot of time cutting your fruits and vegetables into small pieces as with most slow juicers. The ~3-inch clearance can handle large chunks of produce and (smaller) whole apples.
Is it Easy to Clean?
The ELEHOT Fruit & Vegetable Juice Extractor is not dishwasher safe, but the company stressed that it’s easy enough to clean. It may be accurate, but washing by hand is not everyone’s cup of tea.
With most centrifugal juicers, the filter basket is the toughest to clean. It tends to accumulate fibers and residue if not washed right away. Cleaning it immediately after use will save you from the agony of dealing with residue build-up.
So generally, cleaning it up it’s a little challenging.
Pro tip: If you want to make your life a little easier, place a compostable bag in the pulp bin.
Fast juice extraction is the ultimate advantage of high-speed juicers, but it comes with a price. The rapid revolutions incorporate a lot of oxygen into the juice, breaking down the nutrients, minerals, and vitamins at a significant rate. This process is called oxidation or simply the spoiling of your juice.
Juice extracted from centrifugal juicing machines has a shelf life of 24 hours. If you want to take advantage of its maximum nutritional value, consuming it right way will be wise.
What Kinds of Produce Can it Juice?
This dual-speed centrifugal juicer is only suitable for processing dense produce and citruses, plus leafy greens.
It can easily juice beets, broccoli, pear, cilantro, ginger, bitter gourd, asparagus, turmeric, watermelon, pineapple, carrots, cucumber, fennel, apple, pumpkin, celery, yakon, cauliflower, sweet potato, pepper, and garlic.
Citruses like mandarin, oranges, grapefruit, lime, lemons, and tangerine are also a perfect match for this electric juicer.
If you’re planning to juice leafy veggies with this machine, I have to warn you though that it won’t yield as much as slow juice extractors. It would be ideal to place your greens in between produce with high water content when making green juices.
Please note that the ELEHOT 700 Watt Juicer is not designed to take on soft fruits.

The ELEHOT 700 Watt Fruit & Vegetable Juicer is not perfect, but it’s a decent dual-speed centrifugal juice extractor that won’t burn a hole in your pocket. It’s an excellent machine for beginners and a good option if you’re looking into juicing celery.
