Press juicers are an appliance that makes it possible to extract the liquid or juice from various types of fruits and vegetables.
The basic design element for press juicer is the inclusion of lever or crank that makes it possible to press down on the fruits and vegetables with enough force to squeeze the juice from the pulp. Juicer presses are often constructed as manual juicing devices, although there are some electrical types as well.
Most types of countertop press juicers are constructed with bodies of stainless steel.
The pressing chamber is also normally made of steel, and can often be disengaged for easy cleaning. Some models of the press juicer also include detachable chamber constructed of glass or high quality plastic to catch the extracted juice and allow it to be transferred to glass or pitcher with relative ease.
With manual models, the press juicers are operated by pressing down on lever. In turn, the lever works mechanism that pushes downward on the raw fruits and vegetables that have been placed in the pressing chamber. As the lever is lowered, the juice is released from the raw food and runs into holding chamber. The pulp remains in the pressing chamber and can be extracted for use in baked breads and other recipes.
Using press juicers is great way to make various types of homemade juice. Along with simple fruit juice combinations, it is also possible to create nutritious juices using liquid extracted from several different raw foods. Because the liquid from fruits helps to sweeten the juice product, this is often great way to make sure family members receive at least portion of the recommended daily allotment of servings of both fruits and vegetables.
