Customer Reviews

While researching the Krups FSC112 Juice Extractor online we were able to find eight reviews awarding this machine three out of five stars. The reviews were strongly mixed with the negative reviews highlighting several possibly serious design flaws.

Positive reviewers stated that this machine was easily cleaned and the pieces are safe to use in the dishwasher. None of the reviewers commented on their components’ finish chipping after use in the dishwasher. Though many reviewers found it just as easy to clean by hand as it is in the dishwasher so they often just do that.

Several reviewers also reported that this machine produced little to no pulp in their drinks. Most enjoyed this feature as they were attempting to get small children to drink healthier juice. However a few adult reviewers complained that they preferred more pulp in their juice and they did not like the idea of taking from the pulp basket as seeds and peels were also in there. Though most reviewers enjoyed this feature if you really enjoy pulp this might be bothersome.

This machine was reported to able to handle citrus fruits fairly well, which is a nice feature to have as often times you have to buy a separate citrus juicer. Several reviewers reported that they enjoyed this ability more than any of the others, as fresh orange juice was their favorites. Several other reviewers reported they mixed lemon with wheatgrass to increase the flavor, something that would not be possible without this ability.

One negative reviewer reported that this machine made too much foam in the juice. Not all reviewers found this to be an issue but this reviewer found this to be distasteful. They felt it took away from their enjoyment of the juice and meant that the machine was working the fruits and vegetables too fast and was destroying most of the nutrients with the heat. In short they felt it took away from the quality of the juice.

Several reviewers reported that their units’ motor broke after only a few uses, in some cases as little as three uses. One of these reviewers also reported unsatisfactory customer service, even though he was within the one-year warranty. This reviewer claimed that the company stated they would only consider fixing or replacing the item for free if it was shipped in at the consumer’s expense. Shipping this item is nearly half the purchase price and there was no guarantee they would fix or replace the unit without cost.

Overall we are unsure how confident we feel in suggesting this product to consumers. The positive reviewers stated that this machine worked well and was easily cleaned. However the several reports of motors dying after only a few uses makes us nervous about this machine. Our nerves are only compounded by the story about the extremely poor customer service even while within the warranty period. We do not feel that we can in good conscious suggest that consumers buy from a brand that has such poor customer care and apparently poorly built motors. The best we can say for this model is if you plan on upgrading soon it might not be a bad investment, otherwise you might just want to save your money and wait.
