I was really excited when this juicer arrived. It’s the Jack LaLane Juicer Pro. I thought it would be easy, but maybe it would have helped if I read the directions.
I got my carrots, pealed 3, and cut up two apples. Mind you I did this while cooking dinner. I dumped a carrot one at a time and it seemed to work pretty good. However, the juice it was producing was hardly anything! Oh I am so impatient. Then I dumped 2 cut up apples (which was a pain to cut up, by the way) and it wouldn’t budge. Then smoke started coming out of the spout.
I though, oh great. I got a lemon. Then I looked at that cylinder contraption which I though was just a stopper to keep dirt out. Huh, maybe I’m supposed to push fruit in this way. Aha! it worked!
So, after I was done with just the 3 carrots and the apples, I was spent because of all the cutting, and pealing, etc. Mulch ended up in the container in the back, and not thinking, I dumped it the sink….yuck! Oh boy, I had to scoop it out with my hand because now the sink was clogged ( not the side with the garbage disposal.) Well, as you can see … I am not an experienced juicer.
There was carrot peels, and mulch everywhere, apple stems and seeds. It was quite a mess. Then I had to clean the juicer. NOT FUN!
I’m quite lazy when it comes to these things, which is probably bad. I have the thing on a TRIAL so maybe I’ll like it better later.
For now, that was just a little bit of a pain!
