#1

Start with a Juicy base.

When you want to start inventing your own juicer recipes, just remember that every blend needs to start with a base. Juicy fruits and vegetables like apples, oranges, cucumbers, celery and carrots produce a higher volume of liquid, so start with those for a base and then get to experimenting!

#2

Breadmaker fun.

If you’re feeling adventurous, the jam for your fresh doughnuts can be made in our bread maker.

#3

Storing leftover Juice

You can juice larger amounts of fruit and vegetables and store your concoctions in the fridge for a few days to save time. Just remember to use an airtight container because your lovely fresh juice doesn’t have preservatives.

#4

Easily Remove Eggshells From Hard Boiled Eggs

 Simply add 50ml of baking soda or vinegar to the boiling water. As the egg boils the vinegar/baking soda are absorbed and allows the shell to easily separate from the egg whites.

#5 No more tears

chop the ends off your onions and throw them in the microwave for 30 seconds to deactivate those teary enzymes.

#6 Sayonara stale bread

Don’t throw out stale bread. Wrap it in damp paper towel, microwave for 10 seconds and it will come out soft and fresh.

#7 Dry your herbs

Fresh herbs are so expensive that it’s crazy to throw the leftovers away. Place a cups worth of fresh herbs on a paper towel and microwave for 2 – 4 minutes and then crumple in a paper towel. Voila! Dried herbs.
