Place the Pulp Container into position by tilting the pulp container slightly.
To minimize washing up we suggest you place a plastic freezer bag (or plastic grocery bag) into the pulp container to collect the pulp. The bag may also prevent pulp from spitting out of the pulp container.
(Please see page 11.)
Place the juice jug provided under the spout
on the right hand side of the Juice Fountain.
A glass could also be used to
collect the juice.
OPERATING YOUR BREVILLE JUICE FOUNTAIN
Wash your selection of fruit and vegetables
ready for juicing.
Most fruit and vegetables such as apples, carrots and cucumbers will not need to be cut to size as these will fit into the feed chute whole. When juicing carrots place the tip of the carrot in last.
Ensure the Juice Fountain is correctly assembled. (See pages 7, 8 and 9.) Ensure you place the juice jug under the spout while juicing.
Plug the power cord into a power outlet and turn the power ‘ON’. Turn the ‘ON/OFF’ switch on the Juice Fountain down to the ‘ON’ position to start the Juicer operating.
With the motor running place food down the Feed Chute. Using the Food Pusher, gently guide food down the Feed Chute. To extract the maximum amount of juice, always push the Food Pusher down slowly.
Juice will flow into the juice jug and the separated pulp will accumulate in the Pulp Container.
The Pulp Container can be emptied during juicing by turning the Juice Fountain ‘OFF’ and then carefully removing the Pulp Container. (Replace empty Pulp Container before continuing to juice.)
NEVER USE FINGERS TO PUSH FOOD DOWN THE FEED CHUTE OR TO
CLEAR THE FEED CHUTE. ALWAYS USE THE FOOD PUSHER PROVIDED.
OPERATING YOUR BREVILLE JUICE FOUNTAIN cont’d
To minimize washing up we suggest you place a plastic freezer bag (or plastic grocery bag) into the Pulp Container to collect the pulp. When the juicing is completed simply place the bag containing the pulp into a bin. The bag may also prevent pulp from spitting out of the pulp container. (Refer to page 19 for ideas on ‘Using the pulp’.)
Do not allow the Pulp Container to overfill as this may prevent correct operation or damage the unit.
Clean up tip:
For easy cleaning immediately after each use rinse Juice Fountain removable parts under running water (to remove wet sticky pulp).
Then allow to air dry.
TO MINIMIZE WASHING UP PLACE A PLASTIC FREEZER BAG INTO THE PULP CONTAINER TO COLLECT THE PULP.

THE INSIDE INFORMATION ON JUICE
Although the juice drinks contained in this
booklet were developed with flavor, texture
and aroma at the forefront, the health
benefits certainly add to the pleasurable
taste experience. 95% of the nutrient content
of fruit and vegetables is found in the juice.
Liquids extracted from fresh fruits and

When you make your own juices, you have
complete control over what you include in
them. You select the ingredients and decide if
you need to use sugar, salt or other flavoring agents. Freshly extracted juices should be drunk just after they have been made to avoid a loss of vitamin content.
CARE AND CLEANING
•For easy cleaning - immediately after each use rinse removable parts under running water ( to remove wet pulp). Allow parts to air dry.
•After disassembling the unit (see page 12) all removable parts may be washed in hot soapy water.
•The Juice Fountain Juice Cover, filter bowl surround, pulp container and 1 liter juice jug are dishwasher safe. (Top shelf only.)
•Wipe the Motor Base with a damp cloth.
•Before washing juice jug, remove froth attachment and rinse under running water. Do not place froth attachment into dishwasher.
•A nylon washing up brush is the most effective when cleaning the Filter Basket. Using a nylon washing up brush, hold the Filter Basket under running water and brush from the inside of the basket out. Always treat the Filter Basket with care as it can be easily damaged.
•Discoloration of the plastic may occur with strongly colored fruit and vegetables. To help prevent this, wash parts immediately after use.
If discoloration does occur the plastic parts can be soaked in bleach and water. Use 1 tablespoon (20ml) bleach to 1 quart (1 liter) of water, soak plastic parts for a maximum of 5 minutes, then rinse thoroughly.
Do not soak the Filter Basket in bleach.
DO NOT IMMERSE THE MOTOR BASE IN WATER OR ANY OTHER LIQUID.
THE CENTER OF THE FILTER BASKET AND FEED CHUTE CONTAIN SMALL
SHARP BLADES TO PROCESS FRUIT AND VEGETABLES DURING THE
JUICING FUNCTION. DO NOT TOUCH BLADES WHEN HANDLING THE
FILTER BASKET OR FEED CHUTE.
CARE AND CLEANING cont’d
To minimize washing up place a freezer bag (or plastic grocery bag) into the Pulp Container to collect the pulp. When Juicing is completed simply place the bag containing the pulp into a bin. (Refer page 19 for ‘Ideas on Using the Pulp’.)
To assist with cleaning soak the Stainless Steel Filter Basket in hot soapy water for approx. 10 minutes immediately after juicing is completed. If pulp is left to dry on the filter it may clog the fine pores of the filter mesh thereby lessening the effectiveness of the Juicer.
For your convenience a nylon cleaning brush has been included with your Juice Fountain.

When you make your own juices, you have complete control over what you include. You select the ingredients and decide if you need to use sugar, salt or other flavoring agents. Freshly extracted juices should be drunk just after they have been made to avoid a loss of vitamin content.
PURCHASING AND STORAGE OF FRUIT AND VEGETABLES
•Always wash fruit and vegetables before juicing.
•Always use fresh fruit and vegetables for juicing.
•To save money and obtain fresher produce, purchase fruit or vegetables that are in season (see the Fruit and Vegetable Facts chart on pages 21 and 22).
•Due to the high water content found in watermelon, it is not recommended that watermelon be juiced in the Juice Fountain.
•Keep your fruit and vegetables always ready for juicing by washing them before storing.
•Most fruits and hardier type vegetables can be stored at cool room temperature. The more delicate and perishable items such as tomatoes, berries, leafy greens, celery, cucumbers and herbs should be stored in the refrigerator until required.
TIPS ON JUICING cont’d
PREPARATION OF FRUIT AND VEGETABLES
•If using fruits with hard or inedible skins such as melons, mango and kiwi fruit always peel before placing in the Juicer. Pineapples only require tops to be removed prior to juicing, not the skin.
•Citrus fruit can be juiced in the Juice Fountain Professional if peeled first.
•All fruits with pits and seeds or stones such as nectarines, peaches, apricots, plums and cherries must be pitted before juicing.
•A small amount of lemon juice can be added to apple juice to prohibit browning.
Your Juice Fountain Professional makes invigorating, frothy orange juice. Simply peel the oranges and juice. (Best to refrigerate oranges before juicing.)
THE RIGHT TECHNIQUE
When juicing a variety of different ingredients of varying textures, best results are gained by alternating harder ingredients with softer ones. For example, when juicing two hard vegetables such as carrots and parsnips and a softer type, such as tomatoes, start with the parsnips, then the tomato, finishing with the carrots. By alternating between soft and hard vegetables in this manner, it assists by cleaning the stainless steel filter basket between the vegetables. This enables the Juicer to extract the maximum amount of juice from each vegetable.
If you are using herbs, sprouts or small leafy greens it is a good idea to wrap them in a large lettuce or spinach leaf or place them through the Feed Chute between pieces of firmer vegetable.
All fruit and vegetables produce different amounts of liquids. This varies within the same group i.e. one batch of tomatoes can produce more juice than another batch. Since juice recipes are not exact, and juicing is not a science, the precise quantities of any juice are not crucial to the success of a particular mixture.
To extract the maximum
amount of juice always
push the Food Pusher
