Juicing


I did take time this past weekend to make some juice.
Buyer Beware, there are a lot of pieces to pre-wash 
and those same parts get washed again by hand.


The only thing I could see that was dishwasher safe 
was the basket with the tiny mesh for straining the juice.
It is the part that has the razor sharp tiny prongs.
They do provide a long handle brush to use 
to scrub it by hand.


I had some strawberries in the freezer,
thawed them out and added them to the batch.
Maybe that wasn't so smart since they were mushy.


The juice turns out frothy and separates easily.
It had granny smith apples and that gave it a tart taste.
The book suggested using a bit of lemon juice 
to keep the apple juice from discoloring. 
I am wondering if Fruit Fresh would work just as well.


And that folks is my first experience with the new juicer.

  2. My niece has a new one and loves it. I have never had any samples of it so I can't give an opinion but I know she loves hers!~Hugs, Patti

  3. It is a bit time consuming with all that washing up. I use a toothbrush on the mesh blade whizzer thingy and a bit of detergent to make sure all the pulp is removed. I drink down my juice then get straight into washing the bits and re-assembling for the next job. I still haven't found a home for George the Juicer so he just sits on my kitchen bench, gleaming. It must be 6 weeks or so since I have bought commercial juice - I don't think I could go back to it.
