Here are our IMPORTANT TIPS for You to READ before you use your new Power Grind Pro!
JAY’S TIPS ON HOW TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR NEW POWER GRIND PRO:
1. Preparation of Produce: The best way to maximize the yield when you are juicing is to cut your apples, produce up in smaller pieces. This only takes ‘seconds’ and you will notice a huge difference in ease of juicing and also the yield of juice is more.
2. What is the other chute for on the Power Grind Pro? This chute is designed for many things! It is designed for smaller chopped up fruits and/or veggies such as berries, for seeds, grapes, nuts and other grains. The reason we designed it this way is to make sure that the nuts, seeds and fragile fruits do not hit the ceiling while juicing. This chute, angled this way helps the food flow through into the juicer with ease.
3. What is the function of this large pusher? This special pusher has many functions! If you look carefully on the front of the pusher you can see a long slit. This slit is designed to catch into the inside of the cover where there is a long black guide that it attaches itself onto. This was designed specifically to keep your fruits/veggies and/or nuts and seeds in place for maximum extraction. Now, when you are juicing nuts and/or seeds and/or berries, we suggest you take your pusher and twist it 45 degrees to the right until it ‘catches’. Let it stay there while you are sliding your food through the small angled chute. Once you are ready, you can re-twist the pusher into position so that you can ‘slowly’ push the foods through. Remember, up and down, slowly!
4. When juicing Greens, you will yield more juice when you alternate between soft and hard. For example, start with spinach, then use apple or celery, then use parsley, then use lime, (cut into 4 pieces) and then use cucumber, then something soft…etc.,. This makes for the best juice, with the best extraction.
5. If your Juicer stops while juicing: If your juicer stops in the middle of juicing, don’t worry. Turn off the power, open the machine up and clean out the straining basket and re-construct it again and it will start right up again. The reason why the motor does this is because you are either pushing down too hard, or you have too much produce in the chute of the juicer. (the large opening). Remember, there is a rhythm to juicing with this PGP, so trial and error may be the best way to remedy this challenge, however, if you thoroughly read our instructions first, you may never encounter this situation.
6. If your Juicer makes a funny noise while juicing: Don’t worry, keep juicing, because if you hear a grinding noise (not too of a loud noise), it will all balance out when you put another piece of fruit or veggie through the chute. The stainless steel blades under the cover and the stainless steel blades that are located right under this are very close and sometimes pushing can create a grinding sound. This is not a problem, and we suggest you keep using your juicer, and if it gets louder, then stop the machine, clean it out and re-start it. If it still sounds poorly, contact customer service immediately.
7. Why does the PGP (Power Grind Pro) slow down or stall while juicing? It’s because you are pushing too hard and/or have too much produce in the chute. Just clean and re-start. Your juicer will start right up again.
8. Does the plastic in this juicer have any of the harmful BPA’s? NO! Our juicer is free from any harmful plastic and is made of the best quality plastics that can be used.
9. Why does the bowl turn green sometimes? The bowl sometimes casts a shiny green colour due to the carotene stain on the black, somehow turns it green, but it will easily come off when you soak your ‘upper’ parts of your juicer in the following way:
a. fill your sink up with hot water, then add 1 cup of automatic dishwashing liquid or powder.
b. add your upper parts: bowl, blade, straining basket, cover and do not submerge the PUSHER….that should not be soaked or put into the dishwaser, as it can fill up with water.
c. soak these upper parts overnight and in the morning, with a soft brush or washcloth you can remove all carotene stains easily.
10. Is the Juicer dishwasher safe? Yes! It is, except we suggest you put the pusher on the top rack at all times so that it does not get bogged down with water, as it can fill up with water and is quite hard to get it out.
11. Can we juice things like avocados, bananas and such with the PGP? No, bananas, avocados, mangos and the like are not recommended. The juice in bananas and avocadoes are literally impossible to extract. They area better blended.
12. Can the PGP juice ALL kinds of nuts? Yes! It can juice all nuts, including Cashews, but there are two very important things you must do in order to juice the nuts. First, they must be soaked 6-12 hours in purified water before you juice them. And secondly, you should never, ever juice nuts that have shells on them.
13. What other kinds of foods can the PGP juice? Our beautiful Power Grind Pro can juice foods such as: Soybeans, White Beans, Rice, Brown Rice, Corn, Peas, squash and seeds such as Sesame and Flax or variations thereof. Leaves, Greens, Roots…we can juice them all, but just remember they need to be juiced slowly. ALL of these foods mentioned above must be soaked 12 hours beforehand in purified water, then drained and rinsed, and then they are ready for processing with pure water as an added tool to help them flush through the juicer.
14. How do we clean the Straining Basket? The best way to clean your straining basket is to use a vegetable brush, or even the rough side of a sponge works well, but just make sure that you are using a clean sponge. It’s quite easy, and only takes a few brushings and then you are ready to juice.
15. Do any parts come off of the bowl? No. The bowl is secure the way it is and should not be tampered with in any way. The silver ring is part of the bowl and is not designed to be removed from the bowl.
16. How do we ‘clean’ the spout of the juicer? Take a toothbrush you no longer use anymore and sterilize it or put it through the dishwasher. You can use this toothbrush to clean out the spout of the juicer and also the inside of the bowl where the hole is located where the juice flows out of.
17. Should we use a plastic bag to line the inside of the Juicer Bucket with? Yes if you like to do it this way, it helps when you are ready to throw out your pulp, or use your pulp in other recipes, this way you do not need to use your hands to toss out the pulp. We recommend the produce bags from your local grocery food store. We personally do not use them because we use the pulp in our compost garden outside of our home.
18. Can the PGP juice stone fruits and other exotic fruits? Yes! However, you must always remember to take the ‘seed’ out of the stone fruits before you juice them. Our PGP is not designed to juice large seeds from fruits such as apricots, peaches, nectarines, etc.,. There are a few exceptions to this, whereby you can juice cherries with their seeds. Just go slow and when you are slowly pushing downwards, you can use either water or fruit like apples to flush through the rest of the cherries that may be waiting to be flushed through as they sit in the bowl of the juicer. Also, hard coconut can be juiced (not the hard brown shell) but the hard meat of the coconut. We suggest either adding water as you are juicing or add fruits such as pears, apples or hard fruits to flush out the coconut juice.
19. Can the Power Grind Pro (PGP) juice berries effectively? Yes! Cranberries, boysenberries, blueberries, strawberries, blackberries, loganberries, gooseberries can be juiced quite well. Just make sure to use the 45 degree angled chute (see #1a) for more yield and succcess. We always suggest you use either apples or pears to flush through berries as they are small and get lost in the juice bowl.
20. Can the PGP juice oranges and citrus like Grapefruits effectively? Yes! you can juice oranges, tangerines and grapefruits beautifully, however, you must never use the skin of these citrus fruits to juice with, as they have a powerful acid that can burn your stomach as you ingest them. The ONLY citrus we recommend juicing with the skins are: Limes and Lemons (organic only). Their acids are compatible with the human body.
21. Can roots be juiced successfully? Yes, but only the following: Ginger, Tumeric, Garlic (bulb), parsnips, fennel, jerusalem artichoke or sunchoke, rhubarb okra and turnip or other vegetables like these. Even radicchio can be juiced along with all cabbages. Just remember to combine these roots with other vegetables such as carrots/beets or celery.
22. Can sprouts be juiced? Yes! We recommend you use the large chute for sprouts such as Alfalfa, Adzuki, Mung, Lentil. All variations of sprouts can be juiced, however we recommend you use other foods to flush through as they are quite fragile and can get lost in the juice bowl. Combine foods such as: Zucchini, Cucumber or Celery with sprouts, they make for a great combination!
23. Can fresh herbs be juiced? Yes! All fresh herbs can be juiced quite effectively, but again, they should be flushed through with harder fruits and/or vegetables to get the best yield and taste. Start first with a small handful of the herb, then add a few carrots or a few pieces of apples, and then add more greens. This is the most effective way to yield the best kind of juices. Rosemary and dry herbs are NOT recommended at all. They are dry and do not have juice to be extracted.
24. What about hard squash and potatoes? Yes potatoes can be juiced without any problem, however hard squashes like pumpkin or kabucha would have to be cut up in 1 inch squares in order to be juiced effectively, and use the pusher slowly as you push. Most squashes are not recommended to be juiced, because of their taste, yet they can be juiced with our juicer, but you need to make sure the pieces are cut up small, in order not to stall the juicer.
25. Can we juice greens like Wheatgrass? Yes! You can juice greens quite well in our juicer, and we are proud of the way our Power Grind Pro juices greens. They come out very dark and also are extracted beautifully without any pulp or coagulation. However, greens are fragile, and yield very little juice, so we need to flush them through the juicer with foods such as: carrots, celery, apples, cucumber, zucchini (yellow or green), lemons or limes. Greens such as: Kale, Beets, Spinach, Parsley, Chard, Wheatgrass, Romaine and all lettuces, Watercress, Rapini or Broccoli juice quite well! Just remember to ALTERNATE while juicing your greens. Start off with a small handful of greens, then slowly flush through with apples or carrots, or something else that is hard like celery or cucumber. Then repeat again with the greens, and continue to alternate until you are ready to drink your juice.
26. Can all Berries be juiced? Yes! We recommend you use the 45 degree angled chute for berries, as they juice easier this way, and will not pop up on your ceiling! See xxxxx for more details on how to use this chute properly.
27. Can we juice Melons with the skin and all? yes! You can juice ALL of the melons with their skins, and rightfully so, they are packed with lots of organic minerals, but just be sure to buy only organic melons.
HOW TO USE OUR 45 DEGREE CHUTE FOR JUICING NUTS, SEEDS AND GRAINS.
1a. When juicing nuts such as almonds and walnuts (soaked**) use the 45 degree chute in the juicer. Take the plunger and lift it up and twist it 45 degrees and then let it rest on that ledge. This way, it gets caught and is held open naturally so that when you go to put the water and nuts through you can do it all at once, slowly. Almonds and water together (usually we do 1 cup nuts to 1 cup purified water). Once you have done this, then take the plunger and untwist it so you can now start pushing…slowly! Slowly grinding is the key. However, we also love to substitute fruits instead of the water. See 2a for more information.
Here are the nuts you can juice effectively with our PGP:
a. Almonds, Wanuts, Filberts, Pecans, Cashews, Brazil Nuts, Peanuts, Pistachios, Macadamia and Pine Nuts. Only use raw and organic. NEVER juice salted, roasted or nuts that are in shells. This will ruin your new Power Grind Pro.
2a. You can also ‘substitute’ the purified water mentioned in 1a with fruits such as: Apples, Pears, Celery, Cucumber, Carrots, Pineapple. Be careful with the pineapple as it has a strong taste and may override some of the lovey taste of the nuts. Our favourites are Apples, Pears, Berries of all kinds and dark Grapes.
3a. What can I do with the Nut pulp? The pulp comes out beautifully. You can use the pulp combined with mashed dates to make a great desert, or use the pulp in muffin, cake or sprinkle on top of your oatmeal in the mornings for more fiber! See our website for more ideas and suggestions as to how to use the pulp.
4a. Can I juice veggies or fruits right after doing Nut Milks? No. Your juicer must be cleaned out in order to juice any kind of juices, in order to make successful juices. And this also applies to juicing first, and then switching to Nut Milks. The screen must be clean in order to juice effectively, even if you are going to be juicing nut or seed milks.
5a. Will my nut milks/seed milks last in the refrigerator? Yes! Freshly made nut and/or seed milks can be stored in the refrigerator up to two days.
** Soak all your nuts 12 hours in purified water overnight, then drain and rinse and keep in the refrigerator until you are ready to juice. Seeds can be soaked for 6 hours before hand. Also, when soaked, rinse and keep in fridge until ready you juice them. We use glass jars with lids for our nuts and seeds and grains such as soy beans.
