While researching the Metrokane Mighty OJ Manual Citrus Juicer online we were able to locate twelve reviews awarding this juicer two out of five stars. The reviewers were strongly negative, in fact, not one reviewer had a single positive thing to say about this juicer.
The Mighty OJ was reported by several reviewers to have very fragile components, which often snapped after very minimal usage. On average after a few uses or several weeks of minimal use different parts of the juicer would break, leaving it unusable.
Parts reported to snap and break where the gears, the screws (which often came loose and fell out becoming lost), and one reviewer reported that the lower part that holds the fruit in place bent.
While the bent lower part of the juicer did not render it unusable the reviewer was frustrated because the fruit was not very stable when attempting to juice it.
This apparently weak design goes against the advertised six hundred pounds of leverage this machine is supposed to withstand. Several reviewers suggested using ones “weak arm” to keep from destroying the machine.
Several reviewers also complained of very poor customer service, and a reluctance to carry through with the lifetime warranty this product comes with.
The reviewers that reported this were the same reviewers that had their machines break after very little use. Frustrated with the poor quality of workmanship on their units and the poor customer service, they ended up just tossing their units.
Often they reported better luck with different citrus juicers they purchased after throwing this one out. Another common complaint was the amount of juice left in the fruit by this juicer, and how messy it was to use.
Several reviewers commented that their unit would both jam and not extract any juice, or if it did extract juice, it was only about half of what should come out of the fruit.
On top of all of this the reviewers commented that this machine made an absolute mess while “juicing” what little it took from the fruit. This was frustrating to them because citrus fruits are very sticky and difficult to clean up when dumped all over your countertop.
One reviewed their concern with the health issues of oxidation. They claimed that their unit’s aluminum parts oxidized when exposed to the citrus juice turning strange colors. Disturbed by the possible health concerns of this, they discontinued use and purchased a different citrus press.
Finally, one reviewer claimed that they felt the machine was 80% plastic, directly going against the advertised all metal construction.
They came to this conclusion because the parts were too light and flimsy to be made of anything but plastic. Irritated they sent it back immediately for credit and are currently shopping around for a different citrus press.
Overall, we do not feel comfortable suggesting the Metrokane Mighty OJ Manual Citrus Juicer to reviewers.
The information we were able to obtain paints the picture of a flimsy and weak juicer, with poor customer service and all together too much plastic for a supposedly all-metal machine.
We feel consumers would be better off purchasing a different brand that is proven to have an all-metal construction and a sturdy build. Do not waste your money on this machine, which you will just have to toss out in a few weeks anyway.
