Preparing food
1. Wash the fruit and/or vegetables and cut them into pieces that fit into
the feeding tube, if they are too large to fit into the feeding tube
The filter is very
sharp. Wash with
care. Never touch the
filter with your finger.
2. Remove pips or stones from fruits and vegetables (e.g. plums, peaches, cherries
3. Remove tough skins from fruits and vegetables (e.g. melons, pineapples, cucumbers,
potatoes etc.). Soft-skinned and other foods just need washing (e.g. apples, pears,
carrots, radishes, lettuce, cabbage, parsley, spinach, grapes, strawberries, celery
4. Peel and remove the white pith from citrus fruits, otherwise the juice may taste bitter.

Assembly and Use
5. Fit the filter holder ‘○
5 ' and pulp collector 1
6. Fit the filter ‘○
4 ’ inside the filter holder and push down. Ensure that the filter is in the
correct position. Always check the filter before use. If you detect any cracks or
damage, do not use the appliance.
7. Fit the lid. Lock the lid by clipping the top of the latches (Fig.1) to the lid. Now, snap
the bottom of the latches (Fig.2) into place. NOTE: Your juicer will not work if the lid
is unlocked. Do not operate the juicer without the pulp collector fitted.
8. Put the juice jug under the juice outlet. The foam separator in the jug ensures that the
juice is free from foam.
9. Press the On/Off speed switch to setting 1 (low speed) or 2 (high speed) to switch on
the appliance (use speed 1 for softer food such as citrus fruits and strawberries).
10. Put the pre-cut pieces into the feeding tube and gently press them down towards the
rotating filter with the pusher. Do not exert too much pressure on the pusher, as this
could affect the quality of the end result and it could even cause the filter to come to
a halt.
Note: When juicing hard foods, we recommend a maximum quantity of 1.5Kg with a
maximum operation time of 2 minutes. Some hard foods may make your juicer slow
down or stop. If this happens switch the juicer off and unblock the filter.
Note: Never insert your fingers or an object into the feeding tube. After you
have processed all ingredients and the juice flow has stopped, switch off the
appliance and wait until the filter has stopped rotating.
11. Clear the pulp collector regularly during use. Note that the juicer is factory lubricated
and requires no further lubrication.
To take your juicer apart
Perform the assembly procedure in reverse in order to take the juicer apart.
Hints and Tips
If you need to store the juice for a few hours put it in the fridge. It will keep for longer
if you add a few drops of lemon juice to it.
It is recommended that you do not drink more than three 230ml glasses of juice a day
unless your body is used to it.
Dilute juice for children with an equal amount of water.
Juice from dark green (broccoli, spinach, etc.) or dark red (beetroot, red cabbage,
etc.) vegetables will be extremely strong. People with diabetes or low blood sugar
should avoid drinking too much.
Use fresh fruit and vegetables, as they contain more juice.
Pineapples, beetroots, celery stalks, apples, cucumbers, carrots, spinach, melons,
tomatoes, pomegranates, oranges and grapes are particularly suitable for processing
in the juice extractor.
When preparing apple juice, remember that the thickness of the apple juice depends
on the kind of apple you are using. The juicier the apple, the thinner the juice.
Choose a kind of apple that produces the type of juice you prefer.
Apple juice turns brown very quickly. To slow down this process, add a few drops of
lemon juice. Fruits that contain starch, such as bananas, papayas, avocados, figs
and mangoes are not suitable for processing in the juice extractor. Use a food
processor or blender to process these fruits.
Leaves and leaf stalks of e.g. lettuce can also be processed in the juice extractor.
Drink the juice immediately after you have extracted it. If it is exposed to air for some
time, the juice will lose its taste and nutritional value.
To extract the maximum amount of juice, always press the pusher down slowly.
The juicer is not suitable for processing very hard and/or fibrous/starchy fruits or
vegetables such as sugar cane.
