USE

1- Recommendations for using the citrus press
- position the arm before switching the machine on 
- lightly press on the arm until the juice is completely extracted 
- to avoid any splashing, switch the machine off before lifting back the arm 
- for grapefruit, release the pressure slightly from time to time for better extraction 

2- Recommendations for juice extraction
- it is not necessary to peel the fruit or remove the pips, except for fruit/vegetables with thick skin (e.g. pineapple, banana, etc.) or fruit with large seeds (e.g. melon) 
- always remove the stone from fruit such as peach, apricot, cherry etc
- keep appliance running without interruption until its work is completed
- if fruit or vegetables is too wide to place in the feedtube, cut fruit or vegetables into small pieces, so the juice will be extracted more thoroughly
- for best results, press gently to allow the fruit/vegetables against the grater
- after putting in last pieces of fruit or vegetables keep the appliance running for a few extra seconds so that all the juice is completely extracted. Then switch off. 

3- Juice extractor basket starts to vibrate slightly during operation
this indicates that the distribution of residue in the basket has lead to unbalance. Stop the machine and empty the juice extractor basket. Then resume normally.
