Hi it’s Dan from eujuicers.com, and today
we’re looking at something a little different. We’ve had some requests from commercial users.
These are people with juice bars, restaurants, hotel kitchens, that have been asking us about
commercial juicers. Now we focus on home juicers. You can see here, this is the Angel home juicer.
This is the Rolls Royce of juicers. Solid stainless steel construction, very high quality
machine. Angel also is known for their commercial juicers. This is the Mini – this is the little
one, actually. This will juice 20 kilograms of carrots per hour. It is actually available
in a medium which will do 60 kilograms per hour, and a Max that will do 140 kilograms
per hour. This thing is not for your home, this weighs 40 kilos – about 100 pounds
– so you’re not going to move this around by yourself. Grandma doesn’t want this in
her kitchen. You want this in an industrial kitchen. This is a commercial piece of machinery.
So what I’m going to do – this is my first experience with this, I’m very interested
in seeing it in action. The first thing we’ll do is disassemble and take a look at all the
parts, so you can see how this thing works. So I’ve disassembled the Angel juicer here,
and you can see the different parts here. Let me just start here and show you and tell
you what these are. This is just the housing cover. It goes over the top. It keeps things
clean. This is the juice screen holder, it’s kind of the head unit. A solid unit – very
heavy – and on it it actually has a pulp regulation screw here. You can turn this back and forth
to regulate how much pulp you want coming out. You don’t want to tighten it all the
way, or it will have full pressure and might blow the thing up. Now we have the mid plate.
This just holds things together. And the pulp will come out here – you’ll see it when we’re
juicing and the juice comes out on this side. Here you have the dual juicing screens. And
this is where the produce is pushed through – the juice comes out through these. And finally,
you have the dual gears. These are what do all the work. These things are solid – they
are really heavy. They fit together perfectly. The produce goes in and is crushed completely,
squeezing as much juice as possible. A lot of restaurants, they like to use centrifugal
juicers because they are fast – this is also very fast, with 20 kilograms per hour. But
it’s also far more efficient. It will get the most juice possible out of your produce
and as well the healthiest, because those centrifugal juicers are spinning at 5000-10000
rpm. Your filling things up with oxidation, destroying the enzymes. This will give a much
healthier juice. So now I’m going to assemble this Angel Mini juicer, and since this is
a commercial piece of equipment, it’s not going to go together quite so fast as a home
unit, but it’s still fairly simple to assemble this guy. First of all, I’ll slide these holding
rods into place. Get the two augers. There are two different input holes. Make sure the
white one is on the left. And then you slide them together and just push them back as far
as they can go. Now, next I will put on the juicing screen. Now I’ve got the mid plate
here. The long side will be for the juice, and the short side is for the pulp. And then
we’ve got our head unit. And once that’s all there, you’ll notice these things, these nuts
let you adjust these holding rods. And by moving them around, you can move these around
to get it just right. Got that one up but need to loosen this one a bit more. So that’s
on, now I just need to tighten these guys up. That’s going to hold it all together,
then I’ll drop the housing on the top, like this. Tighten these and we’re ready to go.
Now for commercial users, there are two important factors when it comes to juicing. First of
all is yield: how much juice can you extract from your produce. The second factor is speed:
how long does it take? So what we’ve done, we’ve measured out exactly 10 kilos of carrots.
I’m going to juice those. We’re going to see how long it takes, and also how much juice
we extract. How many liters of juice we extract. So I’ll go ahead and turn on the Angel juicer,
put the carrots in. I’ve got a wooden pusher here to feed them through, and off we go. So, really quickly here we’ve gone through a bunch of carrots. We have our first liter
of juice. I’m going to slide this guy under to avoid drips, and here we have our first
liter of carrot juice. Now I’m just going to continue – turn it back on
and keep juicing. So here’s our second liter. And we’ll just keep moving right along. We’re now at three liters. I’ll pour this. Got a little mess there. One thing I’d like to note
or to point out for you to notice is the pulp. Our pulp bowl is full, and the kind of remarkable
thing about it is that it is so dry. I’ve never seen pulp this dry. It’s almost like
a powder practically. Almost no moisture left here. Alright, let’s continue. I said I was
going to dump this, but let’s keep it around just so we have a reference for how much pulp
we’ve extracted from the carrots. Okay we’re now at four liters of carrot juice. We’ve
got over a gallon of juice here. Let’s see if I can pour it without spilling everywhere. And we still have a whole bunch of carrots to juice.
Whoops, so we’ll just keep going here. Got another liter. I have a feeling I’m going to run out of bowls here. Let’s
see if I can do this without making a big mess. Yeah, no mess for once. Let’s keep going
– still a lot of carrots in there. Six liters down, and running out of bowls. Let’s see
if I can keep this clean. Hm, almost. Still have a fair amount of carrots here. Probably
another liter of juice. Let’s see how much more we get. And finally, the last carrot. 10 kilos are finished. So you can see, we’ve got one, two, three, four, five, six,
seven liters of carrot juice from about 10 kilos of carrots. So, we’ve just finished 10 kilos of carrots. It
took about – just under 32 minutes. Now this machine’s rated at 20 kilos an hour, so that’s
about right. It should take about 30 minutes to do 10 kilos of carrots. Notice the yield
is quite good, especially when compared to a centrifugal juicer. Especially you can tell
by the dry pulp and actually how much juice compared to pulp we got. Remember, this is
a commercial machine. This is for your restaurant, juice bar, things like that. But you can get
this technology at home. Remember we saw at the beginning of the video, Angel makes
a home juicer. If you’re interested in that, you can look at our website, eujuicers.com.
So that’s a look a commercial juicer. Hope you enjoyed seeing this massive Mini machine
and we’ll see you next time. Thanks for watching.
