Resumee

The Profi Cook PC-AE 1156 Automatic Juicer is a good device that juices fruit and vegetables to your complete satisfaction. The juice is almost clear and has only little foam, which can be kept away from the foam trap. The waste is very small and does not have to be disposed of often in the large container so that the flow of work does not have to be interrupted continuously. However, in order to keep the juice quality at the top, the sieve and the protective lid must be rinsed and brushed from time to time. Negative points are that the tube from which the juice comes drips quickly and you have to wipe a little afterwards and that disassembling is a bit cumbersome.

Pro

  • Good juice quality
  • Foam trap
  • 5 performance levels

Cons

  • Dripping and rapid leakage near the tube
  • Heavy disassembly of the individual parts for cleaning

Great result without vegetable or fruit pieces. But a bit difficult to disassemble and drips quickly.

Preparation

The Profi Cook PC-AE 1156 Automatic Juicer is delivered in a functionally illustrated box and is quickly ready for use after a short assembly of the individual parts. The operating instructions describe in concise points and clearly arranged in 10 languages how to handle the device.

Accessories

  • Basic unit with sieve insert and protective cover
  • Waste container and protective cap
  • Measuring cup with foam trap

Handling and use

Suction cups underneath the device provide a secure hold and make work easier.

This juicer has 5 power settings, which are suitable for a different firm or soft fruits and vegetables. Which setting is best is clearly laid out in a table in the operating instructions. The fruit should be cut a little bit small and the casing of e.g. apples should be removed.

A fuse is used to block the device if the protective cover is not yet in place. This ensures that no injuries occur at the centrifuge sieve.

When all components are plugged into each other, juicing can begin. You put the cut fruit into the feed chute and the appliance fills the rest.

The juice starts to run directly out of the small tube and you have to make sure that the measuring cup is placed close to the appliance, otherwise, drops will form. In general, you should check there from time to time and wipe it over if necessary, as the device tends to leak there.

However, disassembling them turns out to be somewhat difficult, as the individual parts are very strongly clicked together and are difficult to separate again. Caution is then required at the sieve.

Result

The fruit that is thrown into the pit is well cut up and juiced well through the sieve. Every now and then a larger piece flies directly into the waste container without having been juiced sufficiently. Most of it is processed well.

Melons, kiwis, carrots, and apples are juiced without problems and the kiwi seeds are also sieved. Citrus fruits such as oranges are also juiced perfectly, but these fruits are more suitable for pressing.

The juice ends up in a collecting container, which is equipped with a removable foam trap. So if you don't like so much foam in one juice, you don't have to use a spoon to catch the foam.

The leftovers and waste from the fruit and vegetables used ends up in the waste container, which offers plenty of space and does not need to be emptied often.

Only a small amount of residue remains in relation to the initial quantity and the juice quantity is thus well exhausted. Also, its waste is not very wet, which also indicates good juicing.

Cleaning

The more fruit and vegetables you have juiced, the dirtier the protective lid became. You should, therefore, rinse it regularly. The sieve can also be brushed off during this process so that the amount of juice is not restricted.

After 2 carrots the appliance is well dirty and the hard carrot shreds should be rinsed off well

The longer you do not clean the protective cover, the higher the probability that juice will leak out of the space between them.

This is best done with a dishwashing brush and in circular movements. This way you will get all the small residues from the spaces in between.

When you have finished juicing, you should immediately rinse all parts of the juicer thoroughly and brush them off if necessary so that the residues do not dry up and thus make the sieve unusable.

Unfortunately, there are no reviews of this product at the moment. As soon as the device has received more feedback, we will, of course, write the opinions and suggestions here.
