Juiceman juice extractors turn raw fruits and vegetables into liquid. Juiceman Jr. is the smaller, less powerful version of the larger juice extractor sold by Juiceman. With .25 horsepower, it can juice unpeeled melon and pineapple as well as other hard and soft produce. After the blades pulverize the food, the wire mesh basket separates the pulp, seeds and other fibrous material from the liquid juice.

The pulp from juiced fruits and vegetables can be used in recipes.

Assembly

Step 1

Remove all parts of the Juiceman Jr. from the packaging and wash all removable parts with soapy water. Rinse and dry each part thoroughly before reassembling the machine.

Step 2

Assemble the juice bowl over the base with the juice spout facing toward the locking lever on the lid. The spout should slide through the ring on the base of the unit.

Step 3

Insert the filter into the juice bowl, rotating it slightly until it fits securely. It should spin freely inside the juice bowl.

Step 4

Cover the juice bowl with the locking lid with the pulp opening over the pulp spout. Lock the feed chute onto the lid by inserting it and turning it counterclockwise. The safety lock hook on the chute should align with the arrow on the lid. Lock the lid in place.

Step 5

Align the pulp basket so it fits snugly against the base of the unit. When properly engaged, the pulp opening should completely cover the pulp basket. Place the juice pitcher with the froth separator inserted under the juice spout at the front of the machine.

Juicing

Step 1

Clean fruits and vegetables under running water before juicing them. Peel citrus fruit, including the white pith. Remove large pits from fruits such as apricots, mangoes and other stone fruits.

Step 2

Cut large fruit such as melon or pineapple into smaller chunks.

Step 3

Turn on Juiceman Jr. and let the motor run for 10 seconds. Use low speed for softer fruits and vegetables and the high speed for harder produce, such as carrots and beets.

Step 4

Place produce into the feed chute and use the food pusher to guide the food into the juicer. Do not allow the juice pitcher or pulp container to become too full.

Step 5

Remove the pulp container and discard the pulp. Clean all moving parts of the unit.
