I squeeze half grapefruits and oranges. The motor is weak and frequently overheats. In the last few weeks the shiny metallic covering of the juice spout has literally oxidized away exposing the underlying material. When I called the company and described what happened I was met with 28 seconds of silence broken only by my asking if the customer service person was trained to respond to complaints by utter silence. There are much better and less expensive juicers on the market.

Absolutely pathetic product !!!
Smeg should be ashamed and embarrassed that they have pocketed all this money by putting a small 70w motor in such an expensive juicer which will overheat and stop working after 2-3 oranges no matter how hard you press!
Its clear that Smeg only cares about profit and not delivering a product which will surpass expectations for its price.
You're paying around $200 to only be able to juice 3 oranges at a time before it stops working!
So disappointed in Smeg and their product. By the way this is my second juicer after having exchanged the first one.
Purchased in December 2020 for $200.00.
Stop working after 2 uses
I bought this product a few weeks ago in David Jones, this is the second time I have used it and stopped working ..
Now that I read the reviews I can see I am not the only one ...
I was about to make the 3rd glass...
Very disappointed specially after the price....
Purchased in October 2020 at David Jones Online Store for $219.00.

You are unlucky to have one.
Total waste of money. It stopped working on its own accord and then..... long wait before it wakes up again. Not at all worth it. Go for one of the inexpensive brands instead. :)
Purchased in September 2020.
We are a household of 4 and takes around 8 oranges to make 4 glasses of juice. The SMEG juicer overheated on the 3rd day. I will not say it is a good buy. Its quiet an expensive juicer to have such complaints. Very sad this has happened.

Over heats ever time
My new smeg citrus juice over heats every time I use it. Ive been gentle with pressure and very disappointed.
Obviously smeg hasnt tested these properly.
Cant believe I cant even make a juice for me and my partner. Will be returning it asap

Looks great but that's where it ends. Overheats and lucky to make two glasses of juice
I recently purchased a Smeg juicer, blue in colour, to match our toaster & kettle. They are attractive pieces and I thought the juicer would be a welcome addition. Unfortunately, the aesthetics is where it ended. Looks great, but it's not practical at all. Smeg should make it clear to purchasers well before they read the operating manual, that the appliance only operates for 3 minutes before overheating and stopping. There are only two of us at home and we are lucky if we get to make two glasses of orange juice before it stops working. Disappointed to say the least.
Questions & Answers
I have just read the reviews, was a little undecided, now I am sure I will wait a little longer, have any of these issues been addressed and are there any that can manage to do more than 2 juices?
I was gifted the smeg juicer by my nephew around October 2020. I was juicing today and the motor just stopped working. What can I do its only 6 months old?
