Citrus Juicer Attachment Tips

Tips for KitchenAid Citrus Juicer

While juicing

  • Keep the elbow at a 90-degree angle so that the juice does not drip down your elbow.
  • Exert inward and downward pressure to extract the juice.

Grayish or streaky juice

  • The juicer attachment housing has an "oil-impregnated" copper-bearing that can produce an oily discharge when it becomes warm.
  • The oil will be present in the juice and cause it to appear grayish or streaky.
  • The oil is FDA-approved, so it will not harm the consumer if ingested.

Squeaking while in use

  • Occasionally, while in use, the JE will make a squeaking/ squealing sound.
  • This sound is most often caused by putting too much pressure against the reamer while holding the fruit to the unit.
  • This causes the parts of the JE to press against each other, causing a squeaking/ squealing sound. Lessen the pressure against the reamer.
