I am sure someone here does :)

I really enjoy fresh squeezed OJ, and want to get a juicer. Perfect ex of what I am not after:

The completely manual, with very little yield, press-every-orange-until-your-hand-falls-off-juicer... no thank you.

Also this:

Too much work, for too little yield.

Also not looking for a masticating juicer. I have one of those already, that I use to make carrot and green vegetable juice; it's not really for citrus fruits.

I'd like one of these:

But not sure if that's feasible.

I found this:


Which is kinda cool, as it's motorized. So yes, you have to put each orange in one at a time, but the machine does the actual extracting work.

Would love to hear some other ideas.

Thanks in advance.

I would ask you to reconsider the manual versions of the juicer. They don't go out of style for a reason.
I know that its not the same case but I go trough a lot of citrus juice in the restaurant every single day (lemon, lime, orange, mandarin, grapefruit) and every single machine that I've bought stops working very soon after being bought. they just don't last and machines tend to extract too much of the skins oil to my liking making the juice bit too bitter.

we always go back to the manual machines and they never fail.
depending on the fruit these 2 models are the best in my personal case

we go trough 10s of kilos a day so I am always looking for new machines(no real choice about it) but the 2 manual ones always save the day. just my 2 cents.

Have you looked at Cuisinart juicers? There is one that is compact with a carafe. In the USA they are about 40 bucks. Inexpensive, require little physical energy and looks like the will give maximum yield.

Thx both.



You mean like this:


?

No way! Gotta have something that doesn't require that much work for that little yield.
I understand that the juicer as shown in the video is a no go. However the ones shown in the link provided in my previous post are pulley/lever(one of those not sure which) and are much less hard on the body while getting the least amount of the citrus skin oil in the juice=good stuff. They are still manual but a very different type of machine. The main point is that if you get a good model, made out of some good material it will last you a lifetime with proper care at a minimal cost. However if you are dead set on an electric version that is fine as well.
