Maintaining Your Cold Press Juicer for Performance

The ultra-modern cold press juicer is indeed a technical miracle of precise components working in harmony to offer all of us a machine that does indeed a brilliant job on the most variable of all of the elements, the produce we try to juice. Picture designing a machine that will do a good job juicing a cucumber and an equally good-job juicing a root veggie like ginger. Juicers have evolved over the previous few years to provide all of us very versatile satisfying machines to use. These machines do however need cleaning and maintaining to you can keep them looking good and executing as if they were new. So let myself cover cleaning your quality juicer first. cold press juicer

Once you have owned and used your juicer for a few months you will learn pretty quickly that there is nothing a gross and staining as the mineral rich residue kept behind when juicing main vegetables and leafy vegetables. I think the key contributors for juicer staining are carrots and beetroot, for two reasons, carrots are incredibly popular as a juice fasting staple and beetroot is a deep, deep red that will stain and adhere to anything it comes into contact with. Our recommendation to clean stained juicer components is this, remove all silicon rubber wiper blades, elephant seals and bungs then bathe the components in an answer of hot tap drinking water and two table spoons of bicarbonate of soft drink per litre of drinking water. Leave the components to soak overnight then clean the juicer parts with a stiff washing up brush, try to buy a brush with brush bristles that are at all angles or come from the head of the brush to cover at least 90 degrees of the brush. This will help to lift the staining from all the nooks and crannies of the juicer. I also use cotton buds or Q tips to completely clean tight areas of the quality juicer where the brush will not reach.

Most modern cold press juicers use a plastic reinforced metal steel perforated juicing display screen, this is the part that really will the hard work as the produce is pressed against it by the turning auger. The juicing display can get stained, have vitamin deposits build in the perforations and also have fibres get stuck in the perforations as well. Mostly quality juicer components CANNOT go in the dishwasher as the heat of a dishwasher will lead to tiredness and component failure. My spouse and i tackle deep cleaning of the juicing screen by gently scrubbing the element with a suede wash inside and out again in a solution of bicarbonate of soda. The yellow metal bristles of the suede brush permeate the perforations and lift up out deposits and muscles and leave the juice fasting screen as nice as new. Likewise if you juice a lot of carrots you will notice that the metal steel takes on a yellow hue, this is normal, and reversible with the cleaning method complete above.
