Juicer!

Wanted to buy one of these for ages - nothing more appetising than freshly pressed fruit or vegetable juice!
I bought the Mouiinex juice machine at Darty's and it is so great. Powerful motor and parts are easy to clean.
Anyone have a juicer and do you use it regularly?

Re: Juicer!

I've got one, but have only used it once or twice. It was always destined to be consigned to the cupboard containing useful but seldom used gadgets! Like a bread maker, food processor, espresso coffee machine, machine for peeling apples, electric slicer, electric mincer (was going to try making my own mince and sausages), electric grating machine, etc. etc. - the list goes on!!

Re: Juicer!

i had one but gave it away as you had to have so much fruit to get a glass of juice by the time you scraped the scummy froth off it wasn't worth the effort, fruit is alot cheaper in turkey than uk, so it won't be as bad but wasn't cost effective here .

Re: Juicer!

Maisie, really? Oh I think I'll be using mine a lot! It depends on what you normally eat or drink on whether you would use it regularly of course. I just made the most amazing carrot and apple juice. The thing I have consigned to the cupboard is my toaster which i never use as i haven't eaten bread for a long time.
I used to have a food processor which had a juicer attachment but it wasn't as good and powerful as a dedicated juicer.
Hijo, I had an old fashioned citrus press as you describe but it only worked for oranges. It wouldn't work for carrots or even apples. The juicer is very efficient at extracting the juice from the pulp and yes, better to use in Turkey where fruit is cheaper.

Re: Juicer!

Was just lately thinking of asking for advice on a juicer on here since our pomegranates are ripe and ready to be juiced! I had in mind an electric juicer, however, I was told the electric ones are not suitable and I need to get a manual press as the white fleshy part in pomegranates is the sour part, so you avoid juicing that with this kind of juicer. Should work fine for oranges and grapefruits too.

Re: Juicer!

Glad you mentioned that Carla. Last year I used the juicer on my food processor and the pomegranate juice was so bitter. A Turkish friend who has a cafe says that you should always use a press.

I'm going to try making ayva and pomegranate juice jam.

Re: Juicer!

What is "ayva", Soo?

We had a juicer in the UK and you could also make nut milks in it, almond was nice and better than the stuff aimed at vegans in supermarkets.

You can use the leftover pulp (fibre) to make muffins and don't think just juice, you can make a quick, low cal soup too.

Re: Juicer!

i have one that was used a lot last year...and im getting in out again for the first time this year..just bought load of oranges.
down in Hatay is where they make Nar ekşisi..and the traditional way is to press the bitter pomegranates juice out with their feet ...

so i suppose you could do the same with the sweet ones ...so get stomping Soo
