We’ve notice the following about using the unit: If you plan to do larger quantities, you might want to consider a more upscale unit. Depending on what you are juicing, you’ll usually need to clean the cutter/basket to maintain efficiency after a quart or two. After that the screen tends to get clogged and you’ll loose some juice into the pulp bin. Apples, cucumbers and the like do fine without clogging the screen, so I start with those. I’ll do the carrots last since the pulp seals the little holes in the screen pretty quickly. Pineapple and ginger fibers seem to get caught in the cutting teeth, so I also do these at the end. The top also slowly fills up with pulp, and you’ll need to clean it to keep going after a couple of quarts of juice making. Just pop the top and scoop it out (make sure the motor stops spinning before you remove the top); you can do a more thorough cleaning once you’re done. Again, if you’re just making a quart or two, none of this should be a problem.
Cleanup is fairly easy if you do it right after juicing. Most of the pulp rinses right off, but the cutter/basket takes a little scrubbing, and you want to be meticulous because once the pulp dries, it’s really hard to remove.
Some folks have complained about the pulp in the juice. We actually enjoy the texture and prefer it this way. It seems like we’re drinking something substantial. Just to be clear, it is still very much juice/liquid, it just contains some pulp too. We especially enjoy juicing a couple of beets into the mix for the flavor and the rich red color.
We make larger quantities of juice each time, because we don’t have the time it takes to scrub and prepare the fruits and veggies every day, so we keep some in the fridge for the busy days. It’s recommended that for maximum nutritional benefit you drink the juice right away, but it seems to keep and taste good for up to three days in the fridge. For folks that do daily juicing of smaller quantities, this unit should give good service at a very reasonable price.
Note: When I first plugged it in, I couldn’t get it to turn on. After fooling around with it for a few minutes, I discovered that the top latch arms must be secured in very a specific way or it won’t start. This is a safety measure to ensure that it won’t start with the cutter/basket exposed. Now that I know what I’m doing it starts right up every time. Make absolutely sure that you have the top exactly in place before you send it back as DOA.

The one reason I didn’t give it a perfect 5 stars…
No container included to catch your juice, you must use your own receptacle which is a pain if you’re making any more than one large coffee cups worth. You have to do multiple cups of multiple veggies and fruits and mix them all together in the end.
Couple cleaning tips: Spray the pulp container lightly with pam or non-stick spray lightly before using and the stuff will slide right out. And, after all juicing is done, put a small amount of hot water through the juicer – this makes the filter much easier to clean.

The Hamilton Beach 67601A Big Mouth Juice Extractor arrived already assembled inside the box. All I did was remove the plastic and little cardboard pieces that protected the sides and certain parts of the unit. The box contained the Juicer, a Manual, and a cleaning brush. On page 4 of the Manual, it shows and lists the parts & features of the unit. This particular model does not come with a Juice Cup (at least mine didn’t) (which is not a problem at all). So, once you receive your order, remember to check if you have everything you need to operate the Juicer.
I went ahead and washed the parts that can be washed, and wiped the rest that I couldn’t wash. The Juicer is very easy to put together as it is to take apart (for cleaning).
The motor is very strong. I was able to feed into the chute fruits & vegetables with the Food Pusher with no problem. What really impressed me is the amount of juice it is able to extract from the produce. The juice was smooth, no tiny seeds or particles or remnants of the produce in the juice that came out of the Juice Spout–which is what I expect from a juicer. There’s some fizz, but if you stir the juice, it easily incorporates.
The unit is very easy to clean. The cleaning brush that came with it was very useful when cleaning the Stainless Steel Micro-Mesh Strainer Basket; but you can also use an old toothbrush. I say this because an old toothbrush has softer bristles than the (free) cleaning brush that came with the Juicer. I used the cleaning brush today, but will use an old toothbrush moving forward. The washable parts of the unit can be cleaned very easily by running it under the faucet (that’s what I did), and wiping the non-washable parts with a wet, soapy, paper towel to soften any sticky residue, then wiping it again with just a wet paper towel to remove the soap. The Manual states that the washable parts are dishwasher-safe, so you can do that, too, if you like.
I am attaching some photos to show the following: (1) that there are no broken parts; (2) that the unit came complete with all its parts and already assembled; (3) that it is easy to take-a-part and clean, and then easy to put back together; and (4) the first couple of juices I made from whatever I have in the fridge.
The pitcher contains 3/4 of a cantaloupe; and the large mason jar contains one regularly-sized Fuji apple and six large ripe strawberries. They were delicious! 🙂
Update: I made a Banana & Strawberry juice, and found that while it did extract juice from the bananas, there was left-over pulp from the it. I think this juicer can be “pulp-y” if softer produce is used. I’ll find out as I try-on recipes from the books that I got, and will let you guys know. At any rate, I still love it.
I hope this helps anybody who is in the market for an easy-to-use, easy-to-clean, strong/powerful juicer that extracts a lot of juices.
