Drat! I Need More Juice Cloths
I experienced juice cloth blowout today. Let me give you the background on my juicer. I have a top of the line juicing apparatus: it's the K & K Grinder and Press. It retails for $1300 new (I bought an old model on Ebay for $230 a few years ago--it doesn't matter because these juicers last forever)--It's just like the $2000 Norwalk Juicer except that the K & K has a manual press that uses a hydraulic jack (the press for the Norwalk is electric).
What makes the K & K and Norwalk juicers superior is that they extract the most juice. It's a two-step process: 1) The grinder turns the fruits and/or vegetables into a puree; 2) The puree is then enclosed in a juice cloth that is pressed into juice. The pulp is left in the juice cloth. They are so efficient at extracting the most juice that the leftover pulp is dry and is like cardboard. The juice is delish.
Well, today I made some apple, orange, beet, carrot juice (sprinkled with barley green and wheatgrass powder). However, the juice cloth developed a hole. I have to get new juice cloths now. Bummer. Until I get my new cloths, I can used the one iwth the hole; I just have to fold it a certain way to get it to work.
