PROS AND CONS OF THE JUICE FOUNTAIN
All electromechanical products come with certain advantages and disadvantages. It however depends upon the user requirements. For example, a juicer of high capacity is suitable for a large family or for commercial use; but for a single person, it will sound bulky and expensive. He would prefer a small and powerful juicer for personal use, or for a small family.

The manual along with Juice Fountain comes very handy, especially for people having first experience with juicing.
As the pulp container is integrated into the machine and not externally attached; it means that only about 2-3 glasses of juice can be made in a single session. The container needs to be frequently emptied, if fruit juice is to be made for many persons; such as, in a large family, or for a party.
As the feed tube is positioned centrally over the cutter, and due to the high power of the juicer, the fruit juice may sometimes spill out. But this can easily be avoided by covering the feed tube with the palm, after putting in the ingredients and running the machine.
Berries cannot be juiced well because of the juice spilling out. It happens because very slow speed is required for juicing berries, which is not available with this juicer.
