The juicer does a good job, and we were well satisfied with its performance, but my wife feels that it is hard to clean. We don’t feel that we will be keeping the juicer, even though it is a good product.
I have wanted a juicer for a long time and was too stingy to buy one. Finally my husband told me to go ahead and get one. I did all the reviews on jack lalanne and a few others. I studied the reviews on this one and bought it. It’s the best thing since fitted sheets.
Does a great job juicing everything we put into it.
I have only been able to use it about 6 or 7 times but i really like it. It doesn’t take up too much space so it’s easy to store in an underneath cabinet. No leaks or machine stoppages. I didn’t want to take the plunge and spend too much on a juicer if it wasn’t going to be used. . So this fit the bill perfectly. It isn’t troublesome to use, so it motivates me to keep juicing.
I just purchased the oster juicer and i’m so glad i did. Now it’s easy to make healthy enzyme rich vegetable and fruit juices. The oster juicer is easy to take apart, clean and put right back together.
About 18 months ago at my brothers request, i watched a film called fat, sick, and nearly dead. Currently it’s on netflix online service, but it’s usually available in various forms over the web. This film was a documentary about one mans helping to cure himself with juicing. He had a auto immune disease where minor irritations would create a large release of histamines and give him a bad, painful rash. It did not help that he was obese, out of shape, and in poor overall health. In the past he’d gone on some minor detoxify ventures, but this time he was prepared to try a major one. It involved a serious juice fast, two months worth in fact and then healthy eating afterwards. Last year i tried it for one month and lost about 50 pounds. It is strange, but for some reason, the weight stayed off, after i gained back a few water weight pounds, i’ve kept off the bulk of the weight since. Part of the reason, and i’m not sure why this works is that since the juicing episode, i’ve not really felt like seriously overeating at any time.

- Serves its purpose
- Good price for a great juicer
‘juicing’ has become something of a craze in the last few years, and as such, i’ve noticed a lot more juicers on the market. Personally, i’m not too big into making juice out of fruits and vegetables, and it’s hard to dedicate the counter/cabinet space to one of these machines. However, if you like making fresh fruit and/or vegetable juice every once in awhile or you just want to give the ‘juicing’ craze a whirl, this oster juicer would be a pretty good option since it’s not too expensive, pretty easy to use, and seems to output a fair amount of juice. There are, however, a few things to note:first, it is somewhat loud. Not horribly loud, of course, but you wouldn’t be able to listen to the radio with the machine on, for example. The noise also probably wouldn’t be the greatest thing to hear first thing in the morning while you’re making your juice, especially if you have other people in your household that you don’t want to wake up. Next, it has somewhat of a cheap look and feel, mainly due to the white-plastic exterior. This may be a personal preference, but i much prefer hefty metal appliances, as opposed to plastic ones which don’t seem like they’re going to last too long – though to be fair, the blade on this oster machine does look pretty good, and it’s worked very well so far. Finally, there’s the cleaning. I counted eight pieces to clean total, which seems like a lot to me – granted, most of these pieces you can literally just rinse out.
I’ve had a juicer by oster for years and it has kept on doing the job without a bit of trouble. I wanted to get another one to take to my vacation home and was worried that the newer version would not be as sturdy or as strong as the older one. This product is light weight, powerful, and easy to clean. It spits out totally dry vegetable shreds – in other words it really extracts the juice well. Two suggestions to make clean up especially easy: 1. Don’t delay, rinse it out right away 2. Use a toothbrush and running water to quickly remove the vegetable shreds from the fine microscreen before washing it in the dishwasher. I am using my oster juicer in a place where i have neither a dishwasher not a garbage disposal and it is still an easy clean-up. I can’t believe this machine was so cheap at amazon.
Purchased for my mother in law and she loves it. She makes carrot juice everyday. Had it for about 3 months now and no problems.
I did a side-by-side comparison to the breville 800jexl. Although that means absurdly comparing a $70 machine to a $300 machine, i just couldn’t help myself. Here is what i found:1) the user-accessible parts and basic mechanics are extremely similar. The feed chute is almost exactly the same diameter, the waste bin is about the same, the cutting head is almost interchangeable, and the breakdown of parts for wash is also almost exactly the same. This leaves few surface differences. 2) material used for screen is different. Where the breville uses a true screen, the oster uses a round piece of stainless steel whose holes are almost indecipherable to the touch. Although i can’t really see a quality difference for myself, i wonder if they’ve taken this measure to keep pulp out of the drink, but then suffer a little for it by way of some motor failure. I only say this because the manual mentions quite a few times cleaning this (although it is often unclear that they mean this part in particular) often and especially if you hear the motor working hard. Obviously, the few motor burn-outs consumers have had have hurt this product’s rating.
Okay, in my adult life, i’ve had maybe four juicers. Each worked, with varying degrees of effectiveness. This juicer has them all beat. From two (2) gala apples, i extracted more than 2 cups of juice. Closer to three, truth be told. In addition, the plastic surfaces feel slick, almost teflonesque. Makes swishing them out with water very easy. Bottom line: efficient, easy to clean, nice price.

I’m a great fan of oster, i think is the best kitchen appliances brand ever, but with this one, they missed it, is not so efficienty, the handle you use to push the furit down, does not reach the bottom, so always some fruits remain there, also the trash container is not attached to the machine and everysingle time you have to move the machine you need to pay attention not to drop it. Definitely is nothing i will advice anyone to buy. . Of course now that i have it, is fine, but i wish i had not bought it.
Some have complained that this juicer doesn’t feel that sturdily built, and at first the low price did concern me a bit. True, it’s mostly plastic and not hefty, but i think it’s stronger than it seems. Time, use, and frequent cleanings in the dishwasher will tell, of course, but so far, i’ve had good results and no wear/damage. Speaking of cleaning, i love how easy this is to clean, especially the fact that they’re dishwasher-safe. Even so, i’d recommend rinsing (soaking if necessary) in warm water immediately after using it, though, to avoid stains and more stubborn sticking of fruit/veggie parts. So far, though, no problem getting the unit clean, and it’s easy to disassemble and reassemble, not to mention store away under the cabinets on the countertop. I like the compact design, even though the unit takes up a fair amount of real estate. No power problems so far with the fruits and veggies i’ve tried, though the motor is rather noisy (that’s the main reason for docking a star). Plus, the pulp seems wet enough that it seems more juice could be extracted from it, and if you try running the pulp back through, you’ll see what i mean. Still, running it through twice is not so bad when you figure in the low cost of this unit.
I’ve been very happy with this juicer. You do need to peel your fruits and vegetables and can’t just toss them in fresh from the store like you see on infomercials. It separates pulp from juice very well. In fact, i’ve never found any pulp that got through. It has never jammed and isn’t too loud. It’s quieter than both my blender and food processor. The one thing i love about this juicer is that all the parts can safely be washed in the dishwasher. A little pulp gets stuck in the filter almost every time that requires a hands on cleaning. I only wash the juicer parts on the top shelf of the dishwasher, away from the heat source, so i cannot say as to whether results would be different if cleaned on the bottom.
Been looking to update my 20yr old juicer that still works to a new one with the bigger food feeder so i would not have to waste time cutting up my fruit and veggies. Brought the jack lalanne power juicer deluxe at costo, and took it back two days later because it kept stalling and jaming while juicing one carrot. My old juicer has never stalled while juicing anything. I exchanged it for the oster #3167, and this one works perfect. May be a little louder then the jack lalanne, but so far it has no problem juicing anything we put in it. Easy clean up, and a good amount of juice. Also half the price of the jack lalanne.
Excellent seller 100% recommended.
I am pleasantly surprised with this juicer. I’ve been able to try several juicers recently and this one ranks right up there. It is a small compact machine, smaller than the other ones i have tried. The noise was the big shocker for me. I am used to my hamilton beach making a lot of noise, whereas this one just quietly juiced everything. It comes a part easily enough and cleans just as quick so another plus. The only downside i can see is that it doesn’t seem to produce as much juice as the other juicers i’ve tried. I used the same ingredients and there was noticeably less juice. So far this is my only downside. I haven’t used it as much as others who have commented on the motor burning up, so i will have to update later on after i’ve used it enough times.
Extra wide feed chute fits whole fruits and vegetables
Purchased as a gift – it is being enjoyed by the recipient.
I have been eyeing juicers for a while but they just seemed so expensive and complicated. But when i saw this one available i decided to give it a go. This juicer is amazing: easy to assemble, easy to clean and great juice. I decided to test it out by making a simple apple juice and let me just say this was the best apple juice i have ever had and it is fresh with no added sugars. I will be making all sorts of juices now. This juicer is a good price and a good product.
I have had an oster juicer for over 15 years and i decided to buy a new one because its mouth was too small and it was a bit labourius to juice. I have had this new oster juicer for a few months now and the experience has not been very positive. First of all, the machine keeps moving sideways when one tries to juice harder vegetables like carrots. This is rather inconvenient because one has to hold the juicer firmly in order to avoid this problem. Also, it appears that the rounded device used for pushing the vegetables through the machine has a defective design because large pieces of vegetables are frequently left intact and do not go through the machine. The container where the juice falls has a inside flap to remove the foam when pouring the liquid into a glass. Although it is a good idea to have foamless juice, the flap is built into the container in such a way that it makes it difficult to clean the container. The centrifugal screen is hard to remove from the machine once one finishes juicing. This is also a problem with my old oster juicer. I would have expected that after 15 years the company would have improved in relation to this particular aspect.
The disclaimer is that i got this free through the amazon vine program. However, i was just about to buy a juicer. My husband and i eat a mostly raw food diet and had been thinking about purchasing one. When i was offered this one, i was thrilled. It’s been months since we got it, and the truth is, we’ve used it only one time. This says something both about us and about the juicer. We also make a ton of green ‘soups’ which keep the pulp in. Why would i want to throw away the pulp??well, some people love juice. I do love carrot juice, and i used to buy it pre-made. I was looking forward to getting this juicer simply for carrot juice. But, bottom line, it’s just too much work. I don’t have a dishwasher, and cleaning everything well by hand is a pain.
At first i didn’t like that i thought this wasted too much fruit, but after a few tries i am liking it more. I had a juicer previously that cost over $200 and was terrible, and i was hesitant to spend so much again and not be satisfied so i opted for this one as it is a low price and the reviews were good. I have grown to really like this unit. It is a snap to put together and is very quiet when in use. I also like that you do not have to chop the fruits and veggies into small pieces as it has a large input hole. I typically juice 1/2 cucumber, one apple, 2 celery stalks and 1/2 lime or 1/2 lemon, and sometimes add some ginger or cilantro. The clean up is easy if you do it right away. I immediately add all parts to a sink of hot soapy water and clean after disposing of leftover pulp. I have had this machine for a month at the time of this review.
I finally fired up this juicer a few minutes ago. It cut through apples, carrots, and spinach with aplomb, rendering a surprisingly yummy drink. (i suppose not that surprising since i opted for an apple and carrot base. ) i remember thinking about getting into juicing many years ago, but being put off by the expensive juicers that seemed to be the only viable option. Now there is this affordable, effective oster model. I have to agree with other reviewers, the one off-putting thing about this juicer is the number of parts that need cleaning. I do not know if other models streamline this process, but there it is. On the plus side, they clean pretty easily, with the exception of the metal grinder component, which needs a bit of elbow grease.
I have a breville juicer that i use often at home but i wanted to get a juicer for a vacation home. This oster juicer seemed to fit the bill. Not nearly as big or powerful but good enough for weekend use. In use it works well, especially with softer fruits like oranges, apples, papaya, etc. Even celery has it’s juice extracted without much effort. However, tougher veggies seem to slow the machine down and i don’t get as much juice out of them as i am used to. As far as cleaning goes: i first tried the juicer out at home and washed all immersible components in a dishwasher without issue. However, the weekend house does not have a dishwater and washing the parts by hand is a bit of a pain. Other than that i like this juicer for occasional or light use. However, if you have never use a more powerful juicer like the breville or other more expensive models you might not ever notice any shortcomings in this juicer.
This is a pretty solid juicer but this week i cracked the inner clear circular plastic piece with a half of an apple. It can no longer juice as fruit just slides out the back now so i am sorry to say it looks like my juicing days are overall joking aside i will probably upgrade to a more expensive heavy duty juicer that can handle my daily juicing exploits. If anyone wants the extra pieces i have including an excellent working motor just leave a comment and i can ship it over to you.
Its very nice and easy to use and clean.
Always wanted a juicer but was reluctant to spend the bucks and allocate space in my small kitchen. However, this juicer is reasonably priced and i was able to find room for it. This juicer works great, easy to assemble and clean. The only negative i found was cutting portions small enough to drop through the mouth of the in-feed cavity. I would rather just shove everything down there at one time, but i don’t think that would be a reasonable expectation. I works good with both the hard items (apples, beets, carrots, etc. ) as well as the pulpy items (oranges, grapefruit, lemons, etc). It is great for making juice that is not readily available at the supermarket such as beet juice which some say is good for your blood pressure. The fresh juice is superior to the store bought bottled juice. Be advised that you can’t expect the same juice production by volume from all these items because some fruits & vegies just aren’t as ‘juicy’ as others.
Both the assembly and the cleanup are easy. The pulp is wet during the first run through, but i kind of expect that for a juicer in this price range. (wet pulp indicates that the juicer left juice behind. Many people will run wet pulp through the juicer a second time. ) however, i did feel that there was still a decent amount of juice, despite this. There is a slot at the bottom of the juice cup to help separate the froth/pulp. This works okay, but i find it simpler just to scoop the top. It isn’t as quiet as my waring pro. But it does juice slightly better, in my opinion. Of course, it also slightly more powerful.
My aunt has an oster juicer she’s had since the 70’s. I’d lucked out on an oster blender from the 70’s that i love. Oster is still a great brand, it’s just that everything is plastic these days. Nice large waste container can hold a lot. I knew i wanted to start juicing, but didn’t want to jump right into a big pro juicer. This works great for my needs and its easy to cleangood tip i read: have a sink full of warm soapy water ready for you when your finished to keep clean up easy.
The product lasts quite sometime for using it.
Sturdy all stainless steel filter for durability
This will be a valuable tool for creating healthy smoothies. It makes creating smoothies a snap and cleans up quickly.
The oster 3167 450-watt 34-ounce juicer is easy to assemble, use, and keep clean. I love the fact that most of the parts can be put in the dishwasher. I also appreciate being able to use whole fruits and vegetables. All-in-all, it’s a good kitchen tool to have if you like to drink a lot of juices. You will need some space for it. Check the dimensions carefully to make sure you have a place to use it and a place to store it.
This juicer has been absolutely great. I bought it for a 30 day juice fast, meaning i used it about 5-6 times a day for an entire month and have used it once or twice a day since then, 2 years later and it’s still going strong. I have had no issues at all with it, it juices anything i put in it, i cut most fruit up a bit so i’m not sure how well it would really juice a whole fruit or veggie besides carrots, which it does easily. The pulp is always really dry and i have been extremely pleased with my purchase so far.
. I never thought i would use, much less own, a juicer. But this machine is way coolit was easier to set up and run than i expected; easier to clean than i expected; worked much faster than i expected; and it makes great juicefirst attempt: cherry-limeade. Works equally well whether you peel the limes or not and handled the cherry pits and stems without any problems at all. Furthermore, my wife liked the resultssecond attempt: oranges, limes, chunk pineapple (from a can) and maraschino cherries. Had the juice for breakfast, then added some sweet italian sparkling wine for after dinner. I’m gonna have fun with this thing.
I was so excited to try this juicer. It’s my first time ever owning one and i thought of all the healthy juices i was going to make myself. Well, it’s good for every once in awhile, but i can tell you right now it’s not something that’s going to be used very much. Assembly was actually pretty easy. The instruction manual did a great job with the pictures and it was easy to snap everything into place. The actual container that the juice goes into i had to fight with a little bit to get it to line-up, but once i got the hang of it it started going easier. And dis-assembly is just as easy as assembly. All the parts are plastic but they seem to be heavy duty, so short of dropping the unit on the ground, i don’t see them breaking. As for the juicing, well as i said, this is my first time with a juicer so i don’t have anything to compare it to, but i thought it did just average. The first time i made something i used two pears, two apples, and a piece of pineapple i had hanging out in the fridge.
This is a great juicer for the priceif you’re looking for a juicer to mainly juice fruits, than this would be a great juicer for youit’s not the juicer for you, if you’re looking for something that would juice kale or greens. It does an okay job on those things, if you plan on just using it for greens occasionally. But, for basic fruit juicing, this is great. Works very easily, and is simple enough to put together and cleandefinite bargain.
