Tribest CitriStar CS-1000 Citrus Juicer
If you are tired of drinking orange juice from the carton and grapefruit juice loaded with sugars, it’s time to start making your own fresh juice. Of course, the sheer number and variety of blenders on the current market is overwhelming – ranging anywhere from $15 to upwards of $500, the quality and functions of these juicers are all unique. As a beginner, you don’t want to spend hundreds of dollars on a juicer but you don’t want a cheap one, either. The solution? The Tribest CistriStar CS-1000 Citrus Juicer. Fairly priced at $50, this juicer has a powerful 50-watt motor that smoothly juices any and all citrus fruits. The CitriStar will meet all your citrus needs at an affordable price.
This juicer has a motor powerful enough to quickly extract the most important nutrients from the citrus fruit yet remains quiet while in operation so you can freshly squeeze your orange juice in the early morning without disturbing anybody else in the house. By quickly, I mean that half an orange can be juiced in fewer than seven seconds! The time and effort required of you for this juice is absolutely minimal.
There is an auto start/stop feature for an easy one-touch operation: simply place the fruit on the ream, turn the machine on, and the juice will be extracted until you turn the machine off again. Voila! Fresh juice has been made. It is important to note, however, that the instruction manual suggests not running the machine for more than fifteen seconds at a time. If you are juicing a particularly large grapefruit, it might be best for your machine’s sustainability to give it a rest between fifteen second intervals until the fruit has been completely juiced. The CitriStar has a stainless steel strainer that prevents clogging and comes with a locking spout that allows the juice to flow directly into the glass while preventing any leaks or drips so the juicing process flows seamlessly. It also comes with a universal ream allowing it to extract juice from the smallest lemons to the largest grapefruits and everything in between. The juice flows directly into the glass or container allowing you to juice without limit and does not pause when you exert pressure on the lid.
Overall, it is a nice simple juicer without the bells and whistles of the more expensive juicers. If you are looking for a simple juicer to only make citrus juice, this is the one for you.

Cleaning and Other Specs
If you aren’t impressed by the aforementioned features consider the easy cleaning process of the CistriStar. Dishwasher safe, the juicer needs only to be dismantled, rinsed with warm water, and placed on the top rack of your dishwasher though a number of reviewers have stated it never gets dirty enough to put in the dishwasher – these reviewers claim they only need to run it under warm water with dish soap and the parts are clean and ready to juice again.
The juicer stands nine inches high, six inches wide, six inches deep, and weighs in at fewer than six pounds, making it small enough to be managed easily and stored anywhere there is a little extra room or even left on the countertop for more frequent use. The ream is housed in a plastic body that keeps it rust and odor free and has a forty-eight inch adjustable cord with storage. Reviewers are most impressed with the durability of the appliance, the solid grip it has on the countertop, and the overall appearance. As for prep work – what prep work?! You only need to cut your fruit in half and place it on the ream.
Making your own freshly squeezed juice from citrus fruits is not only a rewarding process, but a healthy one as well. Allow yourself a fresh start each morning with some natural juice. Worry no longer about what preservatives and sugars have been added to the glass of juice that sits before you – make it yourself and watch the grapefruit you handpicked turn into a delicious juice to start your day. I absolutely recommend this product: buy the Tribest CistriStar CS-1000 Citrus Juicer and commit to a newer, better lifestyle.
