The Jack Lalanne juicer is a convenient appliance to have for juicing fresh fruits and vegetables. Keeping the juicer clean requires that you take apart the juicer completely. The juicer comes with a special tool to remove the blade for quick cleaning. After taking the juicer apart and cleaning the juicer, dry the parts and reassemble the unit. Run the unit for two minutes to air dry the basket and blade completely.

Step 1

Unplug the Jack Lalanne juicer power cord from the wall outlet.

Step 2

Pull the food pusher out of the top of the juicer. The pusher is inside the area you would place the produce in when juicing.

Step 3

Hold the top of the juicer with one hand and pull the metal locking bar toward you until the locking bar is off the top of the juicer.

Step 4

Lift the top assembly off the juicer body. Insert the crescent tool inside the two peg holes in the juicer blade. The crescent tool has two pegs on each end that fit into the holes. Hold the side of the blade with your thumb and forefinger and turn the crescent tool counterclockwise to loosen the blade.

Step 5

Unscrew the blade by hand and remove the blade from the juicer. Lift the filter basket out of the juicer.

Step 6

Lift the juice receptacle straight off the juicer body. The juice receptacle is the piece that has the juice spout.
