Customer Reviews

While researching the Koolatron Total Chef Juicin’ Power Juicer online we were able to find fourteen reviews awarding this machine four out of five stars. The reviews were rather mixed, however the majority of reviews were strongly positive with only one or two negative reviews raising any serious concerns.

Most positive reviewers agreed that this machine performed exceptionally well for the price they paid for it. Despite the small price tag, several reviewers agreed that it worked well. Producing delicious juice, and a decent amount from each piece of produce they pushed through it. These reviewers felt that this machine fit within their budget and allowed them to make healthier choices in their life.

Several reviewers also stated that this juicer was easy to use. Most felt that they did not even have to consult the instructional manual after the initial set up. This ease of use was a favorite amongst these reviewers as they felt it speed up their juicing routine which allowed them to fit it easily into their life. Several reviewers new to juicing also stated that this ease of use allowed them to feel confident in their juicing abilities.

Roughly half of the reviewers agreed that the Koolatron juicer was easy to clean. Most reviewers reported they did not even bother with using the dishwasher, because they were so easy to clean by hand. Several reviewers reported that it took them roughly five minutes to clean all the components, and wipe down the base by hand. None of the reviewers reported problems with using the dishwasher; they just felt it was just as easy to clean by hand.

One couple reported that less than four months after purchasing this machine for their son, and after the warranty period was up, it began to leak from the inside. Frustrated and embarrassed that their gift was so poorly made they attempted to find warranty information on the Koolatron website, but they reported none was to be found, and their son eventually had to dispose of his unit. This couple felt this poor quality was unacceptable, even with the low price they paid, as it took less than four months for it to die.

Another reviewer reported that their unit’s motor blew out after only three uses. This reviewer was also frustrated by the poor quality and inability to last of this machine. The reviewer indicated they just threw the machine out not wanting to bother getting a replacement, as they had no confidence in the brand or machine quality.

Several reviewers also reported that their machines came without the advertised drip cap. One reviewer even stated that they returned it and ordered a replacement and it came without a drip cap yet again. A few reviewers speculated that perhaps the drip cap was no longer offered. However they were frustrated that it was still advertised.

Overall we are not sure if we are comfortable with suggesting the Koolatron Total Chef Juicin’ Power Juicer to consumers. The reviews reporting their units breaking after such shorts amount of time and their units coming without the advertised drip cap make us a bit nervous. With only a 90-day warranty these reports of broken units make us even more nervous as it is entirely possible that the machine will break and you will be out of around $100 with no warranty. The best we can say is proceed with caution and do not expect amazing quality if you do purchase it.
