Continuous Juicing– The L'Equip XL Mini Wide Mouth Juicer has Automatic Pulp Ejection for non-stop juicing action. During use, the pulp is conveniently ejected into a pulp container at the back of the unit.
Warranty – The L'Equip Mini XL carries a 10 Year Warranty.
Motor – The powerful 11,000 rpm, induction motor very few moving parts resulting in less wear and greater dependability. Induction motors do not use carbon brushes and the speed of the motor can be controlled with electronics.
Surgical Stainless Steel – The metal parts are forged from heavy gauge surgical stainless steel ensuring years of dependable, worry-free operation. All stainless steel parts are polished or sandblasted to make the unit not only pleasing to look at but easy to clean.
Blade – The stainless steel blade efficiently chews up fruits and vegetables.
Basket and Bowl – The heavy gauge stainless steel bowl is polished to a mirror finish on the outside. Both the basket and bowl have a sandblasted finish on the inside. Once again, making for very easy clean up.
Amber See-Through Top – Design allows easy juicing viewing and reduces the chance of pulp gathering up and clogging the ejection chute.
Rubber Feet – The L'Equip Mini XL Wide Mouth Juicer stands on evenly spaced rubber feet. These feet help to prevent the juicer from “walking” across your counter.
Latch Arms – L'Equip cantilever style latch arms make for easy assembly and disassembly.
Feed Chute - The 3" round feedchute of this juicer is large enough to accommodate whole apples and large pieces of fruits and vegetable. The larger chutes of other juicers normally slow down the motor when too large of an item is pushed down.
Receptacle Bin – The bin will hold the pulp from pounds of fruits and vegetables. A small plastic liner can be placed in the bin for easy clean-up.
The juicer will perform best when letting the flow of juice out of the spout slow down before putting in the next item. If vibration occurs, a firmer item may bring the juicer back into balance. The juicer may have also reached its capacity and needs to be emptied. Items with peels, like apples, will work best when the peel side of the inserted piece is facing the on/off switch.
Starting - Make sure the juicer is properly assembled and running at full speed before you begin to juice.
Feeding Chute - Do not force feed the juicer. For most fruits and vegetables, a slow, start and stop, or jabbing motion will work best. If the juicer begins to vibrate, a slightly harder push with the firmer item should bring it back into balance.
Fruit and Vegetable Size - Firmer items are best used when just large enough to fit in the chute. Softer items are best used when cut into smaller pieces. Items with thin skins (tomatoes/grapes) are best when chopped into even smaller pieces. Stringy items like celery should be cut into roughly 2" pieces for best performance.
Fruit and Vegetable Combinations - When making a drink that uses a combination of more than one fruit or vegetable, we suggest occasionally alternating the various fruits or vegetables when placing them in the machine. Example: Carrot/Celery/Beet Juice - place a couple of pieces of one item and then the next into the unit. Items can be placed randomly. This will work better than doing all carrots, then all celery, then beets. Although alternating should cut down on chances of vibration, it does not always work when juicing an item with a peel. Example: Carrot/Apple Juice - using most of your carrots first will build a better base for the apple pulp to spread appropriately.
Greens - When juicing leafy greens, we suggest that you twist and roll the green into a ball the size of a golf ball. Always place the greens into the juicer first, followed by crispier produce like carrots, celery, etc. The juice from these vegetables will force additional juice from the greens.
Soft Items - When juicing soft produce (tomatoes, grapes, peaches, cucumbers), it is best to not use the filters. Juice slowly, pausing until the flow of juice has slowed down. The fiber of the softer produce can clog the holes of the basket, so you may have to empty the basket more often. It is helpful to start and/or alternate with firmer produce. There is a greater chance for vibration with these items. Bananas can not be juiced.
Finishing - Allow the L'Equip Juicer to run for a couple minutes after turning off the juicer to allow all juice to be extracted from the pulp. Once the juicer is turned off, it is normal for the juicer to continue to spin for a couple minutes due to the precision balancing of the Juicer. Consume juice from fruits and vegetables immediately before oxidation occurs.
Produce - It is very important that you select fruits and vegetables that are very fresh - firm, crisp and juicy!
Uses of Pulp - The pulp may be used for flavoring in soups, cakes and salads or as part of compost for gardens and plants. Pulp can also be used as feed for small animals.
Cleaning - Before you begin juicing, thoroughly wash all dirt, wax, dyes and pesticides from your produce. This will allow you to juice the skin which contains many of the valuable food elements. Exceptions: Peel items like cucumbers, pineapples, cantaloupe and citrus. This will aid in easier juicing, cleaner produce and better tasting juice.
