This juicer is reasonably robust but it is not commercial grade. For my purposes it should hold up but I am a bit disappointed. Here are a few things that are not ideal about it:
1. As stated by another reviewer, the unit is hard to hold when pressing, the stand does not keep it from tipping. It needs a second handle or longer base feet.
2. The press arm goes all the way to the stop (with limes anyway) and does not get a 100% press (perhaps only 98%)
3. It comes with Allen wrenches so I disassembled the top part of the press to clean it before using. The big screws holding the top of the press to the arms cannot be tightened, they just spin forever so I worry it will fall apart after a while. I did not apply any force at all.
4. The stainless base funnel and strainer are a bit thin to be called commercial; they work for home use but I expect they will eventually deform and render the unit non-functional.
5. The unit has a Chinese factory oil smell (I have lived and worked in China and this is too familiar).
6. The rubber feet leave marks on my counter. I will be looking for replacement feet. The other rubber items (handle and stop bumper feel oily), it is not the type of rubber material you would expect on food prep item.
The unit is heavy and otherwise functional. Aside from the never tightening screws I expect a good service life for home use. The orange color of my unit is nice. I would pick a different press is doing it over again.
---- Update -----
I have now run about 1500 limes through this press. It needs frequent bolt tightening and the the main shaft guide is wearing out. it may be okay for light duty home use but I am even more disappointed than after my initial review. i will need to replace it soon with a different brand.
