  1. Disassemble the power juicer

    Turn off and unplug the power juicer. Remove the pusher from the chute, then lower the locking bar to unlock the top half from the base. Take off the lid with the connected pulp guard and pulp collector. Remove the blade with the black crescent tool that comes with all Jack Lalanne power juicers, then take out the filter and receptacle. If you have a removable juice spout, unlock it from the receptacle by turning the locking mechanism counter-clockwise and lifting it up.

  2. Wash the juicer components

    Wash the pusher, lid, pulp collector and receptacle in warm, soapy water. Place the filter and blade under warm running water. Use a soft-bristled kitchen brush if necessary to remove stuck-on pulp. Dry all the components thoroughly.

  3. Wipe the base clean

    Wipe the outer surface of the base with a damp cloth, then dry completely. Do not submerge the base in water.

  4. Reassemble the juicer

    Lock the receptacle back on the base, followed by the filter, then the blade. Use the included crescent tool to secure the blade back into place as indicated on the juicer. Lock the juicer spout back into place on the receptacle, if it was removable. Place the pulp collector, lid and pusher back into position. Ensure all parts are locked into place before using the juicer again.
