Today we are going to take a closer look at Oster Jussimple 5-Speed Easy Juice Extractor.

This particular juicer doesn’t have any feature that is special, it is a straightforward, simple juicer that does its job well.
It is made by Sunbeam, a company that was started in 1901. Is a well-known brand name and a solid performance, without any marketing fancy features, enough? Well, the Oster JusSimple Easy Clean Juice Extractor is on the market since 2015, and it managed to stay amongst best sellers.
Is it justified? Stay with us, and we will find out.
To Whom it is Indeed?
This is a home-use juicer, and as such, it is made to be simple to use. No prior knowledge is necessary, it is pretty simple to use. It is made for people that want to eat and drink healthy, but don’t really trust commercial brands, and don’t mind doing a little work themselves. And people that are always in a rush will also benefit from this juicer because there is no cutting into small pieces needed.
What’s Included in Package?
In the package, you will find a juicer with all the necessary parts, dry pulp bin, a juice pitcher, and an instruction manual that has some recipes with several ingredients, not all of which the average kitchen may have.
Oster Jussimple Review: Overview of features
This juicer is averagely sized for the category, the dimensions are 13.5 x 8 x 16.2 inches, and the weight is almost 9 pounds. So it will take up some space in your kitchen, but no more than the competitors. The design is nice, nothing vanguard, with stainless steel finish as the main theme for the body. The rest of the juicer’s many parts are made of plastic. The overall impression is that the build quality is good.
You will like
- Easy to use and clean. Extra wide chute allows whole fruits to be juiced, so no need for cutting down to small pieces. Rinse and ready filter requires no scrubbing, so that too will be a time saver. The removable parts are dishwasher safe. The 32 oz. juice pitcher with froth separator and a large pulp bin are also nice features that save your time. You don’t have to empty them in the middle of juicing.
- Powerful motor. The 1000 Watts motor can cope with pretty much everything you throw at it, except maybe stones. It has 5-speed settings, so there are enough options for all kinds of fruits and vegetables. The users report solid performance when it comes to juicing leafy greens, which is a weak point for any centrifugal juicer.
- No-drip nozzle. After you are finished juicing, just turn the nozzle tip upwards. This will prevent a dripping and unnecessary mess in the kitchen.
You may not like
- Pulpy juice. The juicer tends to make smoothies out of some fruits and vegetables. Carrots in particular. Many users complain that the carrot juice is too pulpy and can be compared to a smoothie. But this can be considered as subjective because of a lot of people like juices that way.
- Lukewarm juice. The juice can sometimes come out a little bit warmer than expected. So it is advisable to use cold fruits and vegetables and to consult the tables on speeds for certain types of fruits and vegetables.
- Can be noisy. At high-speed settings, it is a little louder than some of the quieter competitors.
As we said, this is a mid-range juicer, and as with all the products, the mid-range category is always with the toughest competition. Some of the main competitors are:
Oster Jussimple Vs BELLA (13694) High Power Juice Extractor
This juicer is equal to Oster jussimple in power, 1000 Watts each. It also has a stainless steel finish and a wide feeding chute. The downsides are that it has just two-speed settings, and the users are complaining that the waste bin is too small. The main advantage of Bella Juicer is a much lower price.
Oster Jussimple vs Hamilton Beach 67650A Pro Juicer Machine
This juicer has slightly less power than Oster jussimple, it roughly the same size. Similarities extend to wide feeding chute and a large pulp bin. The main advantage of this juicer is the lower price and the fact that all the parts that come into contact with food are BPA free.
Oster Jussimple vs Household 600W Juicer
The difference in power is quite large. 600 Watts compared to 1000 Watts that Oster jussimple provides. So, the juicing results will not be the same. Amongst other downsides are also: just two-speed settings and the smaller feeding chute, 2.57 inches, compared to 3 inches that Oster jussimple juicer has. It does, however, have a large waste bin, and stainless steel design. The main advantage is the price, much lower than our tested model, and the BPA free parts that come in contact with the food.
