Every time it comes to canning vegetables and preparation of juices, I catch myself thinking that once again have to go to a neighbor for his juicer. She is unpretentious and simple in design, but, once having worked with her, I can not bring myself to use their industrial combine electric and numerous attachments: again the whole kitchen will have to wash all these nozzles are cleaned.
Whether it is a neighbor’s homemade: and wash-then only three circuits, and Yes seeds, pulp not stuck, and the performance is such that at least manually, but over 30-40 minutes, a bucket of tomato juice.
Very sorry that such fixtures are not on the shelves. So I decided to tell you about the structure of this combine on the pages of your journal: maybe someone will make one for myself, and maybe the industry will be interested.
Externally, the juicer like a meat grinder: the same is secured by a clamp to a stop, the same bell boot Windows, the same handle. However, this similarity ends, as the principle of operation is completely different: there is no screw inside and the usual knives, although it has its own grate at the outlet. Instead of a screw, a small drum with scrapers-knives. Their blades, they grab a tomato (or slices, if large) and pull him with them by turning the knob, pushing in narrowing the gap between the housing and the drum.
