Healthy Juicer - Lexen Manual Wheatgrass Juicer
Most people know about the extensive health benefits of juicing, but nobody enjoys the process of setting up the juicer and worst of all, cleaning up afterwards.
The healthyjuicer is rugged, efficient, and best of all, easy to use and clean!
Masticating verses centrifugal juicers
There are two types of juicers on the market today - Centrifugal and Masticating. Masticating juicers crush the fruit and vegetables as opposed to shredding them, which the average centrifugal juicer does.
Crushing and squeezing extracts more juice and has less heat build up, because centrifugal juicers work at higher speeds, which can destroy the enzymes and nutrients in the juice. The healthyjuicer produces a healthier juice, as it is a masticating juicer!
Designed to handle leafy greens
Have you ever tried to juice leafy vegetables such as parsley, spinach or even cabbage in a centrifugal juicer? Most centrifugal juicer battle to juice leafy vegetables, because they do not have the crushing ability, so great portion go wasted.
Why throw money away by trying to extract juice from leafy vegetables with a centrifugal juicer, get your masticating juicer and start saving.
The auger is specially designed to easily juice pieces of fruits and vegetables with it's tremendous crushing power.
Durable stainless steel inserts are placed on the end cap and tip of the auger where the most crushing force exerted.
The Healthyjuicer is more efficient at juicing wheatgrass. At right is an actual picture of two samples of wheatgrass after being run through the juicers. The top one is a typical metal hand juicer and the bottom one is from the Healthyjuicer. Notice how the bottom sample from the Healthyjuicer is like a piece of rope. Completely dry with every bit of juice extracted.

A. The healthyjuicer does not make nut butters.

Q. What happens to the seeds in fruits such as grapes when they are juiced?
A. The seeds will be expelled from the front of the juicer along with the excess waste pulp. (you may want to remove larger seeds or if there is a large proportion of seeds to prevent the juicer from becoming clogged)
Q. On certain fruits and vegetables such as apples and tomatoes, there does not seem to be much juice coming out and a lot of the fruit or vegetable remains in the juicing chamber turning into “mush”.
A. This problem can occur on certain fruits and vegetables such as apples and tomatoes that are old and have become spongy. They may also have been harvested under poor growing conditions and contain a very low moisture content. Unfortunately these types of fruits and vegetables would not yield much juice from most juicers on the market or would yield a more thick and pasty result. You can however, improve the juice yield on these types of fruits and vegetables with the healthyjuicer by reversing (counter clockwise) the direction of the handle one turn every few regular turns (clockwise). You may also want to remove the small cap to allow more excess waste material to expel from the front and also juice more fiborous vegetables in between such as celery or carrots to help push the soft material out
Tips on using the Healthyjuicer:
If the base seems to be stuck to the surface try turning the locking knob slightly back again and it should un-stick the rubber base.
If you are unable to turn the locking knob on the base of the healthyjuicer, please make sure the body is slid fully into the slot of the base.
When juicing citrus fruits such as oranges and lemons you first need to remove the rind.
If the base slides around or becomes loose make sure the surface and base are completely dry before reattaching.
When juicing softer fruits and vegetables such as apples, alternate with more fiborous vegetables such as celery to help push the softer pulp through the chamber.
Enjoy using your Healthyjuicer!
If you experience juice leaking from the front of the end cap, you may need to tighten the end cap slightly with the included wrench (do not over tighten) this is best done when the body of the juicer is mounted to the base.
After you finish juicing it is best to slightly loosen the end cap with the included wrench before removing the body for cleaning.
If you experience a lot of resistance when juicing you may want to reverse the handle direction slightly every few turns and /or reducing the amount of material you are inserting.
It is not necessary to use the small white end cap when juicing other fruits and vegetables, only when juicing wheatgrass.
Cutting hard vegetables such as carrots or beets into very thin strips will make juicing them much easier.
When you are finished juicing with the healthyjuicer and ready to clean it, remove the handle and un lock the base. Tilt the base and body slightly back towards you to help remove any excess juice making sure the juicer spout is over the cup. Then tilt the body and base forward and place them over the sink. You may then slide the body forward off of the base, loosen the small cap and proceed to wash out the components. It is not necessary to wash the base but just to wipe it clean with a damp cloth or sponge.
Healthy Juicer - Lexen Electric Multi-Purpose Wheatgrass Juicer
The Lexen Electric Healthy Juicer is the new standard in juice extractors. This is a powerful masticating type juicer that 'crushes' fruits and vegetables, including hard vegetables such as carrots. Since there is no heat generated as in other juicers, all of the enzymes are preserved for a fresh and 'live' tasting juice. The affordable price allows everyone to enjoy the incredible health benefits of juicing. More importantly the machine is made of quality parts which will last a lifetime. This is represented by its 8-Year Warranty on its motor and 1-Year Warranty on parts.
This machine has so many different functions than just a juicer! Making pasta, nut butters, healthy baby food, frozen desserts and being a soy milk maker make the price truly unbelievable.
The machine also includes TWO specially designed augers; one for wheatgrass and one for fruits and vegetables.
Another great point with this juicer is there is no internal screen! When juicing you will notice 'wet pulp' buildup on the screen of the juice cup. This is normal and exactly what you want! Just shake the juice cup, give it a few taps and the juice will continue to strain into the collection cup (included). If you like pulpy juice, just leave the screen off!
The machine is made of non-toxic polycarbonate plastic and a stainless steel drive shaft which is sure to last years upon years.
