Being subject to the unpredictable but almost-always gloomy Midwestern winter - I have discovered that a market near me sells bags of Valencia oranges at an excellent price. This made me miss the incomparable fresh orange juice I would get from cafes in Lisbon and the Algarve (even the bag-in-box stuff on the shelf in the hypermarket is amazing). Of course, all I have to decide now is how to juice them.
A consistently on sale Cuisinart model intrigues me but the low price and durability of the plastic reamer gives me doubts ( https://www.amazon.com... ). The Breville Die-Cast model ( http://www.williams-sonoma... ) seems much more durable and has a smaller footprint but is also many times the price of the Cuisinart. A Waring Pro model I've seen around on eBay and other outlets is USA made. Reviews for the Waring Pro state that it is very loud and some write that the gears can get stripped in less than a year. That is not encouraging. As for manual presses, I have never used one so I am not sure how tedious they are to use.
I'm grateful for any suggestions, advice, and warnings you might have in regard to my quandry.
