This juicer is very sleek looking, and it is on infomercials, so it is marketed as the greatest thing since sliced bread. This is a great juicer for the beginner juicehead. It is relatively inexpensive, selling at about $100-$125. If you buy it from the infomercial, it comes with an easy payment plan and of course lots of extra bonuses.
Appearance and Build
The Fusion is very pretty, even coming in a variety of different colors. The juicing compartment is clear, so as you are juicing, you can see what is happening. If bought from the infomercial, it comes with a space-age looking travel bottle. Wherever you buy it from, it comes with a recipe book. It is BPA free, which I had no idea was a problem with juicers. It is compact and easy to store. The Fusion is a centrifugal juicer, so it comes with the typical centrifugal set-up: a chute, a stainless steel cutter/screen, and a spout. The chute is a bit larger than most, allowing for less cutting of vegetables. The stainless steel cutter/screen is sharp, but some fruits are difficult to clean out of it. The spout is a no-drip; just lifting it will prevent juice from spilling out, making for easier clean-up. The motor is 3,600 rpm, so juicing is fast.
Unlike most fast centrifugal juicers, the Fusion is also quiet, which many may find to be a very appealing feature. Critics of the Fusion say that it does not cut up all of the fruit and vegetables sometimes, and will deposit almost whole pieces into the pulp bin. It also has the downfall that all centrifugal juicer have: it is not good at juicing greens. Critics say that the Fusion is even worse than most with this, getting hardly any juice at all from spinach, kale, romaine, and other greens. The juicer is overall easy to clean and all of the parts are dishwasher safe. There are many pros and cons with this one, so whether this is a good juicer for you depends on exactly what you are looking for in a juicer.
