Thank you for purchasing our product.
In doing so, you have opted for an effective high-performance appliance.
The Slow Juicer is a new type of low-speed slow
grinder for fruit and vegetables. This new Juicer has
two separate outlets for the juice and the pulp. The
method of extraction is masticating and pressing, using the screw-like auger much like a mortar and pestle. The action tears open the food’s cell membranes
and releases its deep-seated nutrients and enzymes.
It also releases more phytonutrients, resulting in a
richer coloured juice that retains more vitamins and
minerals. The slow revolutions per minute ensure that
it does not disrupt the cellular structure of fruit and
vegetables, eliminating oxidation and separation. It
consequently preserves the natural form of precious
enzymes and nutrients, even from wheatgrass, soy
and leafy greens.
If the instructions on the correct use of this appliance
are not observed, the manufacturer shall assume no

The use of attachments not recommended or
sold by the appliance manufacturer may cause
fire, electric shocks or injury.
Do not let the cord hang over the edge of a table
/ counter or touch any hot surfaces.
Do not operate this appliance in the presence of
explosive and/or flammable fumes.
Do not attempt to tamper with the cover interlock
To reduce any risk of electric shock, do not
attempt to remove the bottom cover. There
are no user-serviceable parts inside. Have it
repaired only by authorised personnel.
Do not pre-operate before introducing food:
doing so may cause a squeaking noise.
Do not attempt to juice any hard materials, large
seeds (seeds which cannot be swallowed or
chewed), pits, ice or frozen foods.
If food gets stuck in the feeding tube, do not use
anything other than the recommended pusher.
Always make sure that the appliance is in good
working order and that all its removable parts are
secure. Regularly check the power supply cord
and plug for cuts or damage.
Make sure your hands are completely dry before
using the knob.
Do not use for more than 30 minutes.
Carefully wipe the outside of the appliance to remove
any dust that may have accumulated. Dry with a dry
cloth. Do not use any harsh abrasive cleaners. Wash
the accessories in warm soapy water. Then dry with
a dry towel. Do not immerse the supply cord or any
motor parts of this appliance in water or other liquids.
This appliance has a built-in safety lock
which ensures that you can only switch the
appliance on if you have assembled the juicer
correctly on the motor unit. When assembled
correctly, the built-in safety lock is inactive.
Under the bowl there is a rubber pad allowing the discharge of all the juice only from
the juice outlet. Before juicing, make sure the pad
is plugged in completely to prevent any leakage.
Before you assemble the juicer, ensure that the power
cord is unplugged.
1. Put the strainer into the strainer holder.
2. Put the strainer holder into the juice bowl. Be
sure to align the arrow on the strainer with the
arrow on the bowl. When the two arrows are
properly aligned, the strainer should lock into
the bowl, thus preventing it from moving around.
Make sure that the teeth along the lower edge of
the strainer holder fit properly into the cogwheel
inside the bowl.
3. Place the Juice bowl on top of the main body:
make sure the bowl is in place by inserting the
3 hooks on the main body into the 3 slots on
the bowl bottom. Perform a slight rotation in a
clockwise direction until a click is heard.
4. Put the Juice Auger into the strainer and rotate
until it falls into place. To make sure that the
screw is in the correct position, verify that the
upper surface is below the level of the strainer
5. Fit the lid on the Juice bowl and turn it in position
so it locks into the main body.
6. Place the pulp tank so that it fits in position on
the left hand side of the juicer’s main body. Be
sure to align the arrow on the lid with the arrow
on the bowl.
7. Place the juice cup under the Juicer spout.
8. Slide the food pusher down the food chute. The
pusher can only fit one way.
If the Juice bowl and lid are not correctly
assembled, the Juicer will not operate. This
is a safety feature.
The Slow Juicer is suitable for celery, spinach, carrots,
apples, bananas, tomatoes, cucumbers, balsam pear
and all the fruits and vegetables which contain juice,
but not for those containing starch.
1. Clean the fruit and vegetables thoroughly,
making them ready for juicing.
When juicing fruit with stones or hard seeds, pit
the fruit.
If the pieces of fruit or vegetables are very large,
chop them to a size that will fit down the juicer’s
food chute.
Turn clockwise the control knob to the ON
position to juice the fruit.
Press the food pusher slowly down until all fruit
or vegetables have gone through the juicer. Do
not press the food pusher rapidly as the juicer
will not be as effective.
Do not put your hand or any other object in
the food chute during operation.
The juice from the fruit and/or vegetables will
flow directly into the juice cup and the pulp will
be collected in the pulp bin.
When juicing is complete, ensure that the juicer’s
control knob is set to the OFF position, the
power is turned off at the outlet and the juicer is
unplugged. Now the unit can be disassembled
If the Juice Bowl is stuck and does not detach
from the base, turn the knob to “R” for 3-5
seconds. Repeat the process 2-3 times.
Do not turn the knob quickly from ON to R,
but wait a few seconds in the OFF position.
Cut food items into small pieces for optimal
Do not use ice or frozen fruit.
Put food into feeding tube. Do not push heavily.
Insert food at regular speed, allowing all the pulp
to be extracted with maximum efficiency.
When juicing leafy greens or wheatgrass, we
suggest mixing them with fruit or other hard
vegetables for optimal results.
Insert nuts to be juiced only with other foods
such as soaked soybeans or liquids.
Do not operate with an empty bowl.
Leftover juice should be refrigerated or frozen.
When selecting fruit and vegetables for juicing,
always select fresh and properly ripe specimens.
Fresh fruit and vegetables carry more flavour
and juice than those that are not properly ripe.
Juice is best consumed when freshly made, as
this is when its vitamin and mineral content is
the highest.
For better tasting citrus juice, also remove the
inner white peel from the fruit.
Fruit with stones or hard seeds (i.e. mangoes,
nectarines, apricots and cherries) should be
pitted before juicing.
A small amount of lemon can be added to the
apple juice to prevent the juice from browning.
Bananas can be difficult to juice. When you
use bananas, add them as the first or second
ingredient: the nectar of the bananas will flow
through into the juice from the other fruits.
When juicing fruits and vegetables having
different consistencies, it may help to juice
different combinations. For example juice soft
fruit first (i.e. oranges), then follow with hard fruit
(i.e. apples). This will help you achieve maximum
juice extraction.
If juicing herbs or leafy vegetables, wrap them
together to form a bundle before placing them in
the juicer or combine them with other ingredients
at low speed.
Regular maintenance of your appliance will keep it
safe and in proper operational order.
When not in use or before cleaning, always disconnect
the appliance from the mains supply.
Disassemble your juicer in the following order:
1. Remove the food pusher.
2. Remove the lid.
3. Remove the juice auger
4. Remove the strainer holder and strainer.
5. Remove the juice bowl
Wash by hand any removable parts in warm soapy
water. Then rinse and dry every part. Regularly clean
the outside of the appliance with a soft damp cloth
and dry with a dry towel.
Use the brush to clean thoroughly after operation. Do
not use metal sponges or scouring powders to clean.
They can damage the appliance.
Make sure the rubber pad is pulled out completely
when cleaning. Plug it back in securely after cleaning
to prevent any leaks.
To prevent any damage to the appliance do
not use harsh solvents, alkaline cleaning
agents, abrasive cleansers or scouring agents of
any kind when cleaning. Do not immerse the
motor unit or supply cord in water.
