Liner for Norwalk Juicer Cloths?
Posted by: adamlogan ()

Hi I've juiced with my new refurb Norwalk 275 a couple times this week, I got it on Monday March 28th. Yesterday was the messiest episode thus far, but I figured out what I was doing wrong. I was juicing a bunch of greens and mushy fruit (nectarines). Blowback wasn't a big deal, but pressing was a pain, cloths kept coming undone and even spewed greens on me and the refrigerator behind me ha ha.

After a couple tries I realized that I needed to use a paper towel as a liner inside the cloths. Once I did that it was just fine.

But, I did notice a little white ooze with the juice now, presumably bleach or dye, whatever nasty chemicals they add to the paper towels, maybe preservatives. Anyways, I figured I would ask if any of you know of a good organic paper towel fit to be edible? Or perhaps an alternative I could use as a liner for these cloths?

Apart from this, I'm really happy with the juice, it is super super delicious, I find greens to be way tastier by juicing than by blending. That's not to say I'm going to stop blending, but it does seem easier for me to do more greens than fruit via juicing.

Hmm I'm thinking maybe these Chemex Coffee Filters, only thing is it mentions filtering out some oils/fats.. Probably want those, on the other hand maybe the press will squeeze them out anyways.

Main concern is just avoiding the mess and it would be great to avoid introducing anything foreign/unhealthy into the juice. It'd be nice if the "filter" were re-usable, then I wouldn't have this overhead thing going on.

Would a strainer do the trick? What are the better ones out there? A nutmilk strainer seems redundant as I am already using a cloth…

Edit: Just found this thread best juice strainer please?.. Unfortunately the link to the Effepi is no longer working and I can't seem to find a place that sells them. Anyone?

I just went to the top of the site www.cissrl.itand searched for "Piazza Effepi" as Super Juicer says in the other thread and I got results, but now I realize those are for the standard juicers, not relevant to the press. I am thinking I'd like something made out of stainless steel a fine mesh but in the shape of a flexible square cloth.

I sell refurbished Norwalk juicers and service them in California near San Diego. I have been juicing for over 40 years and I have a DVD that I sell with many tips and tricks showing how to save time and keep your juice from getting hot when you make a large batch.

As for lining your cloths YES this is necessary with fruit and with greens only and you MUST use the brown napkins available at most health food stores. Do NOT use white bleached napkins or paper towels. I have videos showing how to do this properly and the wrong way too taken from this Instruction DVD. I'd be happy to send these videos free of charge to anyone on this forum if you contact me at developtrust at cox dot net (spelled out email to deter Phishing robots.) You can also check my web site at www dot wholehealthfound dot com.

Fantastic post developtrust!

The video for juicing was incredible, saved me OODLES of time and gave me at least 30% more juice!!!

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

The Norwalk Press may be okay for a place like the Gerson Institute, but it's too difficult for home use.
I give up trying to convince people...*. Besides, squeezing juice through a nylon cloth lined with paper isn't the way to juice. Think about it. Some people have even suggested using Nylon Stockings.**

*throwing hands into the air
**bending over, shaking head, and using some mild profanities (like 'Heaven help us'...'what is this World coming to'...'how can people be so Blind'...etc).
