A self-cleaning juicer? Well, kind of. The Juisir (thankfully pronounced simply ‘juicer’ – although, in my head, I give it a mock-French lilt and it comes out like ‘joo-sair’ with a flourish on the ‘sair’ bit) doesn’t need any cleaning. HALLELUJAH PRAISE THE JUICING GODS AND I’M NOT TALKING ABOUT JASON VALE.
Although my current juicer is easy to take apart and clean, it still involves taking the lid off, then the filter/mesh/bit that gets all the juice out/bit I don’t actually know what is called, then another bit that I don’t know what is called either but it’s the bit that holds the other bit I don’t know what to call, then the pulp container and then they all have to be washed. And because they don’t all fit in the washing up bowl, they’re scattered around the worktop getting bits of juice and pulp everywhere and then when they are all washed, I have to do a kind of Jenga/Tetris combo to get all the bits to fit on the drainer without them falling off onto the floor. And even when they’re all nice and clean and dry and put back on the machine, it still looks dirty because no matter how thoroughly I think I’ve cleaned it, there’s still bits of fucking fruit stuck to it.
This is why my current juicer is for sale on one of those local Facebook selling pages.
So, Juisir to the juicing rescue! How it works is this: You put your fruit in a cute bag the shape of an elephant’s head, put the bag in the Juisir, press a button and then 8 tons of force (the equivalent of two elephants – hence the elephant heads) squishes the juice out and 90 seconds later, you’ve got a) a glass of juice; and b) a juicer you don’t have to clean because you simply take the bag out and reuse or recycle the bag (you may also have c) an image of an elephant’s head being squished if you have an over-active imagination like mine and think too deeply about stuff, but just keep telling yourself it’s not a real elephant and all will be fine).
I know you’re thinking, ‘Waa, plastic bags, all that waste and what about the environment you philistines, huh?’ Well, stop panicking and cursing me in your head; you get a choice of two bags – either a recyclable one or a reusable one and both bags are made from 100% natural cotton – biodegradable and renewable. So there. Ner. Here’s a video to tell you more about the Juisir (no elephants were harmed in the making of this video).

You’ll have to put your old juicer on a local FB selling page but no one will want to buy it because juicers that need cleaning will be the modern-day equivalent of the dial-up modem and people will publicly mock you.
Unfortunately, the Juisir isn’t available until May but you can pre-order it now (or you can just order it if you hate the term ‘pre-order’). Order the Juisir here.

Although I haven’t yet tried the Juisir myself, I am seriously excited about this product because I love juice but hate cleaning the juicer and the Juisir doesn’t need cleaning (I might have mentioned that already). I haven’t been paid for this post.
