How to Clean Your Juicer

FAQ

Posted by LisaQ on 5 years ago The Nutridisk (or the stainless steel cutting blade thing) is hard to clean. I have tiny bits of food left on it after a thorough washing. How clean does it need to be? Can I use it with some specks left on it? HELP!

    Use the nylon brush that comes with it.... works for me, especially with teeny tiny tomato seeds :-)

    Ugh - bought my juicer used, and it didn't come with a brush. The disk has dried bits on it, and I can' t seem to get it clean. I've soaked it in hot soapy water, scrubbed it and it still has stuff left on it.

    The manual for my Breville says (in addition to using the supplied nylon brush): "If the holes are blocked, soak the Nutridisc in hot water with 10% lemon juice to loosen" I don't know how much success you may have as my brand new juicer developed a thick, hard, white film over most of the working parts after a little more than a week.. including the NurtiDisc! I use/wash it twice a day with hot water and soap (as recommended), and have tried soaking for 4 hours in hot water and vinegar as well as hot water, lemon, vinegar and baking soda. Breville says it's likely caused by produce (how great, for a *juicer*) and told me the damage is likely permanent, but not covered under warranty. Good luck!

    You can clean all the stains off your juicer, even old ones, with the tablets used for cleaning false teeth! Just soak the juicer parts in a bowl, drop in one or two of these tablets, wait 3-5 minutes and then brush lightly. All the stains will have gone! I may use a little dish-washing liquid also. These tablets are really cheap and they are meant to remove food stains after all.

    @Lisa The Breville can be hard to clean in a few areas. I use a combination of a chopstick wrapped in paper towel for the fountain (spout) part of it. I blogged about tips on how to clean it here: http://84lbs84days.blogspot.com/2013/02/tips-as-promised.html Hope this helps. I've been juicing now for 126 days. And today, today was another little victory! I put on a pair of pants today that I tucked away in my closet back in 2007! I put them on more as a joke.. a, wouldn't that be nice... and it was! @UK Girl Thanks for the suggestion! My container had a nice stain to it, it was clean, but still kind of brown. I started looking into how to clean it. Then, my wife got a hold of it. And wow... it is shiny and bright! I'm not sure exactly what she did, I'll ask her and come back and tell. It looks good as new! I'm still in awe! Johnathan Reboot With Joe Success Story ?
