put the pulp back into the juicer, it will damage the juicing screen and makes
void the warranty!
The emphasis of cold press juicers is to produce a high quality juice. This is accomplished by 1) cutting hard produce into smaller strips / pieces 2) and juicing slowly. Although patience is essential, the rewards are really fantastic.
press juicers are excellent for juicing vegetables or a combination
of vegetable and some fruit.
press juicers are really good at juicing wheat grass, but you must feed wheatgrass through the juicer very slowly, or congestion WILL occur.
Cold press juicers often struggle with soft fruit such as watermelon and especially pineapple . (The Vita Juice cold press juicer and the LifeSpring Slow Juicer copes with sloppy fruit the best; followed by the LexSun Standard Juicer, LexSun Elite Juicer and the GreenPower Kempo Juicer. The Angel Juicer really struggles with sloppy fruit and fruit in general, although the optional Soft Fibre Screen does help.)
juicing a lot of soft fruit such as pineapple or watermelon, simply feed the pieces through slower and be patient. Adding some
carrot, beetroot or celery also helps prevent clogging.
juicing apples, Granny Smith apples (or
similar) are best, as they are a hard fruit and contain more juice. Some varieties of red apples are not suitable for cold press juicers (or high speed juicers) as they have a dry consistency, which results in a mushy pulp, little juice and clogged juicing screen.
Fibrous produce such as kale & celery can be very difficult to juice. Tip: 1) Use young leaves, 2) Feed very slowly through your juicer, 3) omit the fibrous stalks and 4) add carrot intermittently to clear any blockages / congestion that may occur.
Cleanliness: It is essential that your juicer be properly cleaned and maintained for normal use. The small holes in the Juicing Screen must be thoroughly cleaned and unblocked; otherwise unnecessary harm can be caused to the gearbox and motor, and juicing will be slower and more difficult. Juice backing up the chute? In 99.9% of the cases where the juice backs up the chute and the juicer is not operating as good as it once was, it is because the tiny holes on the juicing screen have become progressively clogged after repeated use, and normal washing is not always sufficient to remove the pulp. Solution: Soak the part/s in a dessertspoon of Ezy Kleen powder and warm / hot water overnight; rinse in water the following morning and the juicer will usually operate just like new.
