Section 5: Produce Preparation
5.1 SHREDDING
CAUTION: Only press shredded produce. Never attempt to press whole or firm produce, this would put
uneven loading on the machine and would cause premature wear and tear.
NOTICE: The CT7 press was designed to accept produce shredded on a separate food processor. Always
refer to the user manual and follow manufacturer recommendations.
For best results, all produce needs to be shredded in an ideal manner. The perfect shred is not too fine and not too coarse,
and the produce shouldn’t be degraded by being overworked. The best shred is from a repeated slicing process, such as in a
vertical cutter mixer.
5.1.1
If too coarse: If the shredding leaves the produce too coarse, not much of the juice will be freed and the press will
result in a lower yield, meaning there is juice left in the produce that didn’t make its way out.
5.1.2
If too fine: By over shredding produce, it can make it very difficult to control during the pressing cycle. If particles
are too small, there is not enough structure for the produce to tighten up, and as pressure increases the produce will
flow like a liquid, instead of tighten up into a cake.

Section 8: Press Operation
8.1
Ensure all components are properly assembled.
8.2
Make sure machine is plugged in and press the “Power” button (See Figure 6, Page 19).
8.3
Selecting the proper pressing cycle.
Drop
Slow-Gentle: (Button ‘1’) This will press very slowly and also not get up to high pressure. This is ideal for nut
milks and any product that is sensitive to overflowing the machine.
Drop
Slow-Hard: (Button ‘2’) This cycle will very gradually get up to high pressure. This is ideal for an item that needs
a slow approach but can tolerate higher pressure after it is mostly juiced.
Drop
Quick-Soft: (Button ‘3’) This is a quick press cycle, that has a fast approach but won’t hold long enough to get up
to highest pressure.
Drop
Quick-Hard: (Button ‘4’) This is a full speed, full pressure pressing cycle. Ideal for firm produce.
Using the ‘Hold’ function
8.4
8.4.1
The ‘Hold’ function was incorporated to allow for breaks in the press cycle without having to retract
and start over. If you press and hold the ‘Hold’ button, the pressure will remain at it’s current level
and give the juice a chance to flow out. Once the button is released, the pressing cycle will continue. If
the press is moving just a little bit too fast and the produce is rising up in the Filter Bags, the ‘hold’
function can help make sure the cycle can be finished.
8.4.2
When the press is ready for selection of pressing cycle, the 4 cycle buttons will be flashing.
Using ‘Retract’ function
8.5
8.5.1
8.6
The ‘retract’ function is used to cancel any cycle and return the Platen/Press to its starting position.
When press cycle is complete, the Cylinder Rod will retract and indicator lights will light when
machine is ready to be emptied.

Section 10: Cleaning
WARNING: Always check with your local health department regarding procedures required to ensure
proper cleaning and sanitation in order to avoid serious food borne illness to consumers.
(For the US: FDA.gov/food)
WARNING: Disconnect all power before performing maintenance to avoid risk of serious electric shock.
NOTICE: Machine is not to be cleaned with a high pressure water jet to avoid damage to the machine.
NOTICE : Machine does not have wash-down rated plugs and special attention must be paid to avoid
getting unit wet.
10.1
To clean, remove all of the easily removable components from the pressing area, including the Press Chamber,
Moving Platen, Bag Separator and Vibration Pad.
10.2
Disassemble the Press Chamber by sliding the Chamber Bottom out, then remove the Chamber Side (Left) and
Chamber Side (Right). All four independent sections can be washed in the dishwasher or by hand.
10.3
With the juice tray still in place, the inside of the Press Frame can be washed by hand, and the soapy water can be
allowed to collect in the juice tray. Once the Press Frame has been cleaned and rinsed, remove the juice tray and
wash it by hand in a sink or send through the dishwasher.
10.4
The Press Lid door can be cleaned in place by hand, or by opening it fully and then lifting it can be removed and
taken to a sink to be cleaned (See Figure 2, Page 9).
10.5
If any other parts of the machine have been in contact with produce during pressing, the entire machine can be
cleaned with a soapy sponge by hand. Never clean the machine with a water jet, especially where the open louvers or
fan are located. This can damage the machine and could potentially lead to electric shock.

Section 12: Useful Information
12.1 IMPROVING YIELD
Yield is calculated as a percentage of juice out compared to weight of produce in. For example, a pressing that started with
5.0 pounds of apples, and yielded 4.0 pounds of juice would be an 80% yield. It is important to check yield occasionally, it
can be a useful tool in determining if pressing should be slowed down, sped up, or other variables altered. Yield should be
recorded of any separate produce or mixture of produce.
%Yield = (weight juice/weight fruit) x 100
