To juice celery, triturate and press using flat cloths. Fill the feed tube loosely with celery, large ends first, before turning on the Norwalk. While triturating be sure to keep some celery in the feed tube at all times to prevent throwback. Hold on to the stalks as you push them down. When all of the celery have been processed, push all the way down with the pusher and leave it in place until you have turned off the Norwalk.
Puree, Baby Food (Grid #3 or #4)
Triturate using either raw or cooked celery.
Salad (Grid #1 or no Grid)
Triturate rapidly as above and drain. Use juice in vegetable drink, soup or sauce.
The casaba is a late ripening winter melon, a member of the muskmelon family with a yellow skin and white flesh. Cut in half and remove cavity contents. Peel and cut into pieces small enough to fit into housing.
Nectar (Grid #4)
Triturate only. Do not press. Fill the housing loosely with melon. Hold the pusher over the melon before turning on the Norwalk. Keep the housing partially full at all times to prevent throwback. When finished, leave the pusher in the feed tube until you have turned off the Norwalk.
Press only. Fill the center portion of a flat cloth with melon pieces. Fold into thirds and always press with two cloths.
Puree (Grid #2)
Triturate only as with nectar. The melon puree will have the consistency of applesauce and it makes a fine topping for desserts.
Salads (Grid #1)
Triturate rapidly and drain. The juice may be used for drinking or other purposes. It chops to the consistency of crushed pineapple and is very good for fruit salads.
Frozen Casaba Dessert (Grid #1)
Triturate only. Peel and cut well ripened casaba into pieces small enough to fit into the housing. Place in plastic bag and freeze. After frozen, triturate rapidly as above.
The Norwalk can be used to create nutritious, homemade baby food. To grind cooked sweet potatoes for baby or geriatric food, insert grid #3 into the Norwalk. Fill the feed tube loosely with sliced, cooked sweet potatoes. Turn the juicer on and use the pusher to push it through. Some sweet potatoes may remain in the feed tube after grinding–simply remove the feed tube and scoop out the potatoes with a plastic spoon. Store in tightly sealed containers.
The Norwalk can be used to create nutritious, homemade baby food. To grind cooked apples into applesauce for baby or geriatric food, insert grid #3 into the Norwalk. Fill the feed tube loosely with sliced, cooked apples. Insert the pusher into the feed tube, turn the juicer on and let the pusher gravity feed the apples through. Store in tightly sealed containers.
Why do I need to include the shaft measurement when I purchase a cutter?
So the cutter may be fit to your shaft before it is shipped to you.
When do I need to have my cutter sharpened?
A dull cutter will cause overheating and difficulty in grinding. Cutter blades should not be rounded or chipped. However, they do not have to be razor sharp to operate properly. Blade sharpness will vary depending on usage. Please call our service department at 479-876-8264 if you have any questions or concerns about sharpening the cutter.
Will the 280 model cutter, housing, or o-rings fit on my model 275 or older?
No. The cutter, housing, and o-rings for the model 280 are made specifically for the model 280 and will not fit any other model.
How do I clean the o-ring?
I have heard that the white o-ring on the faceplate of the Model 280 is unsanitary. Like any part on a juicer that comes in contact with the product, it must be washed after use. The new FDA approved o-ring is easy to remove and clean. Press or pinch the o-ring with your thumb and index finger, and then pull the o-ring off with your other hand. Wash in warm soapy water, rinse, and dry. The groove where the o-ring sits can be wiped off with a soapy cloth and rinsed with a clean damp cloth.
