Hamilton Beach 67601 Big Mouth Juice Extractor Review
A powerful 800-watt motor and extra-large feed chute make juicing lightning-fast. Users report that the machine is easy to clean and praise the big pulp container in the back.
Hamilton Beach makes several centrifugal juicers at varying price points. The 67601 Big Mouth Juice Extractor (starting at $50Amazon) gets consistently good reviews -- more than 1,000 4- and 5-star ratings on Amazon alone. A roundup of the best countertop appliances by Food & Wine names the Hamilton Beach Big Mouth tops in the juicer category, where it beat out far more expensive models.
Hamilton Beach 67601 reviews often highlight the machine's many convenient features. It has a powerful 800-watt motor and an extra-wide 3-inch feed chute -- a real bonus in the eyes of consumers and experts. The larger chute means less chopping and slicing of fruits and veggies before juicing. The produce whirs around in a stainless-steel cutting and straining basket and the juice funnels out the spout. The pulp bin at the back of the machine is very large, another feature reviewers seem to love. Juicers with smaller pulp receptacles require anyone making larger quantities of juice to stop and dump the pulp in between batches, adding more minutes to the juicing process.
This machine hasn't received a single negative review on Target.com, where about two dozen users commend the power, speed, and ease of use and assembly. One aspect of performance that users almost universally praise is the cleanup. As with any juicer, it's important to rinse the pulp off the parts immediately after use to prevent a dried, stuck-on mess, especially on the stainless-steel screen. (User tip: A reviewer on Amazon recommends swirling a small bit of cooking oil around in the pulp receptacle before juicing so that the pulp slides right out afterward.) The parts are dishwasher-safe, and this juicer comes with a cleaning brush.
Some users do warn that this Hamilton Beach model is noisy -- a common complaint surrounding cheap juicers. At nearly 10 pounds, this is also the heaviest machine we reviewed. Despite those drawbacks, users and experts remain enamored with the speed, power, and ease of the Hamilton Beach 67601 Big Mouth Juice Extractor.
