Quality citrus press Gorenje CJ40W
This is a rather nice juicer with an oblong cylindrical shape. Its main characteristics are as follows:
|Dimensions (edit)||165x210x165 mm|
|The weight||0.9 kg|
|Body material||Plastic + metal|
|Juice container volume||1 l|
The principle of operation of the Gorenje CJ40W juicer is very similar to the previous model:
- We install the bowl on the support, inside which the engine is located.
- We put a filter with a conical press on the bowl.
- We turn on the juicer to the network.
- We press on the press so that it begins to rotate and extract juice.
It is noteworthy that the set includes 2 attachments: larger and smaller. The first is intended for large fruits (grapefruits, oranges); the second is used to make a drink from lemons, tangerines and limes.
The device does not have a gearshift option. But you can change the direction of rotation of the press (for maximum squeezing out of the juice). To do this, it is enough to release the pressure on the cone, and after a short pause, press it again. There is a dedicated switch at the top of the handle. It allows you to change the density of the filter. This will help you regulate how much pulp is in your drink.
As we mentioned above, the volume of the juice tank is 1 liter. To fill it, you need to spend about 7 minutes. In principle, this is not very long, and the finished drink will be enough for a standard family of 3 people.
The inner walls of the tank can be easily cleaned with a damp sponge. Removable elements (filter, cone press) can be washed either by hand or in the dishwasher. To prevent dust from getting on the filter during long-term storage, the creators put a transparent cover in the box.
The price of Gorenje CJ40W in Ukraine is about UAH 1,130

|The weight||0.583 kg|
Body - white polypropylene
Juice tank - transparent polypropylene
|Juice tank volume||0.5 L|
|Current frequency||50/60 Hz|
The design of the product is extremely simple. It can be roughly divided into 3 zones:
- Polypropylene stand equipped with non-slip feet. Inside it is a motor that rotates the press shaft. Also in the lower area there is a compartment for storing a cord with a length of 1.2 m.
- Translucent juice jug. The reservoir is pushed onto a movable shaft that rotates the press while squeezing out the juice.
- Filter and press for squeezing out juice in the form of a conical nozzle.
The filter has a rim bent upwards to prevent juice spilling out of the device. Also, these sides prevent pieces of pulp from flying around the table. All removable parts of the juicer, including the jug, are dishwasher safe. Despite the fact that this is a budget model, it has 2 directions of rotation. The change of direction is achieved in the same way as with the previous juicer:
- Press down on the cone press.
- Let go of him.
- Press again.
Due to its compactness, the model is easy to store. It doesn't take up much space in your closet or kitchen counter. At the same time, the product has 2 obvious disadvantages:

Review of the STEBA ZP 2 juicer
Introducing the most powerful member of our TOP. This model is not very elegant and stylish, but in juicing it will outperform many competitors in its class. The characteristics of the device are as follows:
|Dimensions (edit)||290x180x255 mm|
|The weight||2, 3 kg|
|Body material||Stainless steel + plastic|
|Juice tank volume||0.75 l|
The model has the shape of a vertical cylinder mounted on a stand. There are not very many stainless steel in the design. Its base is plastic, and the metal only wraps it in a thin layer. This decision of engineers is easily explainable, because otherwise the device would weigh much more than 2.3 kg.
The STEBA ZP 2 juicer has 2 interesting features:
- The design of the device allows you to prepare a drink in two ways. You can accumulate juice in a tank, and then remove it and pour the drink into glasses. You can also lower the jumper, and the juice will be poured along the groove directly into the provided cup.
- A special handle is attached to the body of the product with a bowl at the bottom. It allows you to fix the half of the fruit and squeeze out the juice more efficiently.
The algorithm for using the model looks like this:
- We insert the bowl, put on the filter and the cone nozzle.
- We turn on the device to the network.
- Cut the citrus fruit into 2 halves.
- We insert one half into a special bowl under the lever.
- We place the glass under the groove (if we want to squeeze the fresh juice directly).
- We press the fruit with the upper handle until it stops, until the juice stops flowing.
- After squeezing out the juice, repeat the procedure with the other halves of the citrus fruits.
As in all previous juicers, the press starts working automatically after pressing on the cone. The device does not emit a strong annoying noise. The filter of the device is also made of stainless steel. It can be easily removed and washed. To make it more convenient for the user to work with fruits of different sizes, the kit includes 2 attachments.
Thanks to a powerful motor and a special handle, which is equipped with a bowl for placing the fruit, the device allows you to quickly fill several glasses with a drink (but in fairness, it must be said that it will take a lot of fruit). The device has only 2 drawbacks: large dimensions and weight, which is why the product is not very convenient to carry and store. And by design, this juicer is not for everybody. Although, in view of its effectiveness, this moment can be ignored.
The price of STEBA ZP 2 in Russia is about 6,900 rubles
The price of STEBA ZP 2 in Ukraine is about UAH 2,100
