Can I juice any type of fruits and vegetables?
Technically speaking, you could. Fruits like bananas are rich in starch, and with a particular consistency, are impossible to be effectively juiced with a centrifugal juice extractor.
Can I juice greens and soft spine vegetables?
Yes! The smaller feed chute of the model ES700 has been designed for this task.
Is it better to use under ripened fruits or ripe fruits?
Fruits that are too ripe quickly clog the juicing basket. This results in wetter pulp and a lower juice yield. Under ripened fruits are often bitter and offer a lower yield of juice. When possible, use fruits and vegetables which are in season and are at the peak of freshness.
Do I have to peel all of the fruits and vegetables before juicing them?
Use the same rule as if you were eating them. You must peel fruits or vegetables with hard, bitter or inedible skin or rinds, such as melon, pineapple, mango, kiwi and citrus, before being inserted in the juice extractor. You can juice carrots, apples and peaches without being peeled.
Do I have to remove the seeds or stones from some fruits?
This is the same rule as above; always remove stones from apricots, peaches and other pitted fruits. You do not need to remove seeds from apples, watermelons, citrus and other fruit with small seeds.
Can I juice citrus?
Yes! Citrus offers an excellent yield of juice. Remember to peel them first, as the skin is usually extraordinarily bitter and gets stuck under the grating disc’s teeth and into the strainer.
Can I juice fruits and vegetables whole?
Yes, given the conditions above are met (no need to peel them or remove stones) and they fit into the feed chute. For instance, You can juice apples, carrots, peppers, cucumbers, fennels, etc., without further work apart from washing them first.
Why does the Ceado Juicer have smaller/different teeth compared to Nutrifaster?
After thorough research and multiple tests, we found out that smaller teeth will grate smaller chunks of fruits/veggies, enabling the net/filter mesh to better “exploit” them. This leads to higher yield and dryer pulp.
Why is the mesh designed as it is?
As stated above, larger holes in the mesh would allow bigger chunks to filter into the juice. If the holes are too small, the yield will be lessened and lead to the wetter pulp.
Why does the ES700 have two feed chutes?
The smaller feed chute is ideal for long fruits and vegetables (carrots, celery, etc.) and juicing leafy and soft spine greens that tend to “runaway” in the larger chutes. The larger chute is designed for bigger fruits (such as apples), which can be juiced without cutting them, leading to quick service.
Why does the Ceado Juicer have such a heavy, asynchronous motor?
We chose a reliable, low-speed asynchronous motor that performs to guarantee enough speed and torque to exploit the fruits and vegetables, but not too much to burn the vitamins. Coupled with the design of the net and grating discs, we found it is the perfect balance to produce a smooth and clean juice, with incredible output and yield.
How often do I have to replace the motors bearings?
Never. As long as the machine is properly cleaned and maintained, you should never replace the motors bearings. Ceado uses the highest quality and longest lasting motor bearings on the market.
Is it okay to pour water through the chutes to moisten the basket?
Yes, but very carefully. This can be helpful only if the juicer is not going to be used for a while to prevent leftover fruit or vegetables from drying on the basket.
How often do I need to clean my machine?
The pulp container has a capacity of 6+ (for ES500) to 8+ (for ES700) quarts. We generally suggest cleaning the juicing basket after about 40 lbs. of fruits/vegetables for ES700, 30 lbs. for ES500 that you juice. The most important thing is not to let traces of fruit or vegetables dry and harden on the pulp container, basket, juicer cover or food pusher. This could create noise and reduce the yield of the juice.
Can I wash it in the dishwasher?
Apart from the pulp container, which only needs to be immersed in hot water, the other removable parts are dishwasher safe. Please note that the juicer cover is made of anodized aluminum and will darken if washed into the dishwasher. The juice bowl, pulp retainer and juicing basket are stainless steel, and we suggest cleaning the juicing basket using the nylon brush included, (always from the inside of the strainer) as it lengthens its life span.
Having a second complete basket on hand is very helpful to reduce downtime while cleaning the original basket. When possible, soak the fruits and vegetables (significantly harder ones such as carrots) before juicing them so that it eases the process and guarantees more yield. When juicing leafy greens, try to juice a small bunch together instead of processing them separately. Juicing a carrot after “sticky fruits” (such as an apple) usually helps to self-clean the basket.
Due to the nature of beets, they tend to stick to one side of the basket. This causes the basket to be off-balance and causes loud noise and vibrations of the machine. To effectively juice beets, you should quarter them and feed them into both chutes alternating the sides. This alleviates any problems.
