Comments about Ra Chand Large Manual Citrus Juicer:

Unit provides good leverage for squeezing fruit, but the lack or turning action means that it does not yield full extraction- crushing only doesn't give maximum yield. Unit is not as heavy as it looks, being made of some kind of cheap pot metal. The unit can rock forward or backward when operating the lever because the base is not large/heavy. The plating on the surfaces is incomplete, as if it were quickly dip-plated. some metal food-contact surfaces are not plated, and worse, they are roughly milled- there were literally loose metal shards embedded in the surface. The black rubber feet are screwed on at a haphazard angle, and the rubber material rubs off on the counter. In all, a good design that has been poory finished. Not much quality for the money.

    Comments about Ra Chand Large Manual Citrus Juicer:

    I was getting tired of putting a lot of effort each morning into get some fresh juice with an old electric grinder type juicer - the j500 has changed that and best of all it handles all sizes of oranges and grapefruit with ease. The J500 is well constructed for a lifetime of daily use. Yes it's a bit pricy but well worth it in the end -- it is fast,easy use and the cleanup after use is a snap.

            I love this juicer! I've tried a few others and this is by far the best. Only drawback, having to change the cone every few months b/c the acid from the lemons causes it to deteriorate. I can live with that though. I would never use another juicer after using this one.

            Great products and service.

                  Comments about Ra Chand Large Manual Citrus Juicer:

                  I bought this for heavy daily use in my store, because we were going through smaller units every 5-6 months. This juicer does a very good job at juicing lemons, oranges or anything else we've put in it.

                  If there is a drawback, it is that it could be 1.5 inches taller. We use 44 ounce cups, and you have to put them in at an angle (solved by putting thicker rubber casters under it). So far, that is the only con. I would've saved a lot of money if I would've bought this unit right from the start.

                  Service and delivery comments:

                  Sturdy, cost effective, easy to clean.

                    How many PSI will the handle withstand?

                      Thanks for reaching out to Tundra Restaurant Supply with your question.

                      The manufacturer of this Ra Chand J500 Manual Citrus Juicer did not have PSI information for this unit. That said, if you apply even down pressure you'll be able to juice what's in the juicing basket.

                      You can apply quite a bit of pressure without snapping the handle, but if you're hammering down the handle in a quick motion the handle is more susceptible to breaking.

                  • Q:

                    Is this Juicer as suited to juicing Lemons and Limes, or is it optimized for grapefruit and Oranges?

                    Most Citrus Presses are optimized for extracting Orange and Grapefruit Juice. I will be using it almost entirely juicing Lemons and Limes; is this Juicer equally well suited for Lemons and Limes of various sizes?

                      I recommend using the smaller version of this manual juicer for lemons and limes. Please see below.
