Bright is what immediately catches the eye. Red metallic, on the one hand, distinguishes this model from competitors, on the other – restricts its choice, because not all interiors it will fit. In the range of the company there are juicers of this model, more neutral in color: white and gray. They are more versatile, but the red one is of course the chicest. The model has combined features of juicers of different years. With its size and ergonomics it is close to auger devices that appeared two or three years ago. And here’s the anti-drip device, a feature of the 2016 models.

The juicer itself is quite large for auger devices, although smaller than centrifugal. I was pleased that the hole in the feeder is big, too: no need to cut the products too finely. Apples and oranges can be cut into four pieces, and a small carrot will fit in one piece.
Cake port – 5,5×5 cm Juice port – 5,5×3 cm. Of the advantages, note the compact storage of juice and cake bowls: one container is inserted into the other.
Features of usage
Operation is standard for this equipment: two-way button on the body. Press upward to start juicing, press downward to start reversing.

Now about what we did not like: the juicer is quite difficult to assemble and not easy to disassemble. When assembling it is important to match the multiple markings on the different parts of the model, and they still need to discern. I get it quickly enough, since I’ve been familiar with auger juicers for several years and I constantly use one at home. But the unprepared person can have some difficulties with the assembly.
To facilitate disassembly the manufacturers recommend to activate reverse for a few seconds before switching off. I also strongly advise you not to forget about it, otherwise you will have to make some effort to pull out the auger and filter.
The juicer is not the quietest in our test, but it is not too loud either. The sound is standard, not particularly pleasant, but not annoying, typical of this class of devices.
No mention of washing in the dishwasher in the manual. Manufacturers noted that it is theoretically possible, but may be ineffective.
The juicer coped very well with all products. Runs smoothly, is quite fast, not especially loud. The juice is thick, homogeneous. The cake is very dry, thoroughly ground.

This juicer showed stunningly great results! Highest amount of squeezed juice with carrot, grape and pumpkin pulp, second best for orange juice, runner-up for juice with apple pulp.
The results for filtered juices were not so brilliant, but still very good: second place for pumpkin juice and third place for carrot juice.
All in all, this juicer very thoroughly juices all foods. It turns out thick, rich in pulp, which is extremely useful, but not everyone likes.
The KITFORT KT-1101 juicer showed very good results in the test. It makes great juice with pulp, squeezing the maximum amount of juice. The cake stays almost dry. This model does not have the most convenient assembly disassembly, these features need to get used to. If you take into account the excellent performance, bright design and reasonable price, then this model is an excellent purchase.
Excellent preparation of juices with pulp from a variety of products – some of the best test results!
Includes a juicing booklet with recipes. This is a nice bonus for hostesses when buying and will give many ideas.
Large opening of the hatch – no need to finely chop products.
It takes some getting used to proper picking.
For easy disassembly should include reverse.
No indication of dishwasher safe.
