Juicers & Juice Extractors
Types of Juicer Machines and How They Work
Simply put, a juicer is a piece of equipment that is used to help separate juice from the pulp of fruits and vegetables.
The two most common types of juicers are centrifugal juicers and masticating juicers. Centrifugal juicers are often used as home juicers because they are relatively more affordable than masticating juicers. It works by cutting up the fruit or vegetable using a flat cutting blade. This juicer then spins the produce at a high speed in order to effectively separate the juice from the pulp. In contrast, a masticating juicer utilizes an auger to crush and mash the fruit or vegetable into smaller pieces before the juice is squeezed out of the produce, using a built-in screen while the pulpy remains of the produce are expelled through a separate outlet. This type of juicer is relatively more expensive compared to centrifugal juicers but is considered more efficient and produces more juice. As such, most commercial juicers are masticating juicers.
How to Properly Clean a Commercial Juicer
To keep your juicer machine in great condition so you can produce excellent-quality juice every time, you will need to properly clean it. It is quite easy to properly clean your juicer, and the cleaning method can be used for both commercial juicers and home juicers, so everything should be a breeze.
For cleaning your juicer, you will need the following: water, a soft brush, some dish-washing soap, dishcloths, and a spatula.
First, make sure to unplug your juicer machine. Then, proceed to disassemble the juicer completely, making sure to follow the instructions in the manual provided. Look for the container or bin that holds the produce pulp, and scrape away unnecessary pulp with the spatula. Next, rinse every piece of equipment with running water. You can use cleaning brushes to clean the areas of the juicer that are difficult to reach. It is also a good idea to focus more on cleaning and washing the mesh strainer as pulp and other debris from the produce can build up quickly in this specific part of the juicer.
Use a soft, clean dishcloth to wipe away dirt, dust, and dried juice from the machine itself. Lastly, allow the pieces of juicer that you washed to dry completely. Reassemble the juicer based on the instruction manual, and use as needed.
