Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by S&G Poor design
Several design flaws. Unless you are using a large pitcher, tall enough to be right under the juice,r be prepared for a big mess. This could have been solved by a) having a larger grid to contain the pulp, b) designing the body of the juice extractor in such a manner that the spout could be closer to a smaller pitcher or container. It seems to have been conceived for individuals with 3 hands: one to hold the fruit, one to hold a glass and one to hold the stand mixer so that it does no go backwards when you are pressing your citrus... A horizontal (instead of vertical) juicer would have been certainly a better, albeit more expensive, and less messy idea.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lisa juices I like this juicer, but there is a grease problem
I get bulk supplies of lemons and oranges and like to squeeze and freeze for use later. Once I'm set up, it goes along great and in no time my work is done :) The last couple of times I used it though, oil kept leaking and spraying from the gear shaft. I had to continually keep wiping it away to keep out of the juice.The grease leaks right where my juice is expelling. Can this be corrected? Would replacing the gear shaft fix the problem? When buying my KitchenAid mixer and additional parts, I felt I was investing in the best tools available. I would like to salvage the tool but do not want grease in my juices. Can you help? If we can resolve this issue, I would definitely recommend this accessory to friends and family.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by SG Very poor design
I bought this citrus extractor to avoid having another small appliance on the counter top. Unfortunately, it's so poorly designed that I prefer to use the old style manual citrus extractor for everyday use. Besides the sort of *reasonable* price, I really cannot came up with any pros on this attachment, perhaps the worst from all other KA attachments that I've used. 1) The extractor sits vertically (instead of horizontally) and leaves a very large gap between its spout and the countertop. Unless you use a very large pitcher that sits right under the spout you'll end with juice all over the place 2) The "vertical* design also means that you have to press horizontally against the mixer, which will skid backwards as you press (you may wish to bolt the stand mixer to your counter...) 3) The mesh for the pulp is so small that you need to clean it pressing one orange, otherwise the juice will overflow and get even more mess in your kitchen 3) All- plastic construction with a few cheap and non durable metal parts (the lock washer that goes on the rod broke after one use) 4) The few metal components are not stainless steel 5) Perhaps this was conceived for a 3 handed individual, as you need one hand to hold the fruit, one hand to hold a glass close to the spout and one hand to hold the mixer so that it does not skid backwards I hope KA reads this and eventually come up with a better designed attachment for this purpose.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Jojo Worst juicer attachment
I returned to store after trying this attachment. Very awkward position to hold fruit for juice and juice runs down your hand . Half of juice wasted. I spoke with kitchenaid staff a while back that juice mechanism should be on top not sideways. Need to apply too much pressure to extract juice. Very tiring on hand to juice in this configuration. All juicers have ream on top not sideways. Kitchenaid needs to reconfigure this attachment!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kcdeb Does the job quickly!
When juicer arrived I couldn't wait to use it , we have a lemon tree with tons of lemons so this will come in handy. I halved 12 lemons and went to work , it juiced these lemons with ease very quickly , the basket caught the pulp it needed to be emptied after about 6 halves tray comes out easily so no problem.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Azsnowbird Very good purchase
The citrus attachment was as advertised. Instructions were complete and assembly was simple. It worked well. I felt it was good value.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dave To soon to tell but seems like a good range
Have only had it installed for about a month. Do not like the front panel I can't read the writing on the panel should have been backlit. Oven is larger then the old Jenn Air that is good. Burners heat up quickly and top is not that hard to keep clean. Seems like a well built range, hope it holds up. Warming drawer is very handy and works well.
