A well-maintained sugarcane juicer is essential for extracting the most delicious, fresh sugarcane juice. The NSF-Certified Sugarcane Juicer SC-3 is the only sugarcane juicer in North America certified by the National Sanitation Foundation, ensuring this appliance meets stringent food safety standards. In this quick guide, we’ll walk you through maintaining your sugarcane juicer so you can ensure its optimal performance and increased longevity.
1. Clean Regularly
Regular cleaning ensures all components stay free from dirt, bacteria, and buildup, contributing to a higher juice quality. Use food-grade cleaning agents that are gentle yet effective in removing all residues. Regular cleaning maintains the hygienic conditions of your equipment and keeps its parts in good working order.
Do not use strong acid detergents to clean the cover of the cabinet part, labeled in your owner’s manual. Harsh cleaning compounds can damage the stainless steel. To prevent water from leaking into the machine and damaging electrical components, do not spray cleaning solution directly onto the appliance. Likewise, do not hose the appliance down.
You can remove the roller and juice cabinet, each labeled in your owner’s manual, for cleaning.
- Soak and wash each part separately in warm water with mild food-grade detergent.
- Gently scrub the roller assembly with a soft-bristled brush to remove any residue.
- Rinse all components thoroughly to remove any traces of detergent.
- Dry each part completely before reassembling the juicer.
2. Correctly Prepare Sugarcane for Processing
Properly preparing the sugarcane is crucial for maintaining your juicer’s optimal performance and longevity. When you don’t thoroughly clean the canes, residual pesticides or dirt can clog the machine, leading to decreased efficiency and possible damage. Additionally, unwashed sugarcane or sugarcane that isn’t fresh will result in cloudy juice.
Preparing sugarcane also requires cutting it into manageable pieces. Cutting the sugarcane into shorter pieces, 8 to 20 inches long, with an angled cut, will make it easier for the machine to juice efficiently. Overloading the appliance can cause unnecessary wear and tear and interruptions.
3. Check and Replace Worn-Out Parts
Finally, regular inspections of your professional appliance are crucial to identify and replace any worn-out parts. Continuous use of your juicer will inevitably result in wear and tear, compromising the efficiency of your machine. To maintain peak performance, keep an eye on components such as rollers, gears, and filters, replacing them as necessary.
Keep your juice extraction process efficient, hygienic, and consistent. Following this quick guide to maintaining your sugarcane juicer ensures optimal performance and a longer lifespan from your machine.
