Chard is the same as Swiss chard and is actually a white rooted beet. Its leaves are eaten like spinach and its stalks like asparagus.
Juice (Juicing Grid or Grid #1)
Triturate and press in flat cloths.
Turn on the Norwalk and fill the feed tube with large bunches, stem ends first. When all the chard has been processed, press all the way down with the pusher and leave it in place until you have turned off the Norwalk.
Fill the center portion of a flat cloth with one cup of pulp. Fold into thirds and always press with two cloths.
Many types of cheeses may be grated in the Norwalk. The type of grind obtained will vary with the consistency and temperature of the cheese. Hard cheeses can be easily grated in the Norwalk. New or soft cheeses should be chilled before grinding for good results. Triturate only.
Use Grid #0 for coarse texture.
Use Grid #1 for fine texture.
Use Grid #2 for very fine.
Use Grid #3 or #4 for cottage cheese to be used in place of sour cream or cream cheese in dips.
Fill the housing loosely with cheese. Hold the pusher over the cheese before turning on the Norwalk. Triturate using light pressure on the pusher. 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.
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.
