The Mehu-Lissa steam juicer 10L is really more than a steam juicer. It can also double as a roasting pan, soup kettle and steamer for vegetables and entire meals as well as make steamed juice. This juicer is nothing exceptional to look at. In fact, it looks like three stainless steel pans stacked one on top of each other. However, it is as nice looking as other pans and it's function more than makes up for it's looks. The Mehu-Liisa steam juicer 10L uses a gentle steam process which opens the juice cells in fruit allowing more juice to be released. The juice then falls into the bottom kettle where it can be strained into jars giving you 100% pure juice from apples, berries, tomatoes, and many other fruits. The juice extracted in this manner can then be used to make syrups, jellies and apple and pear butter. When not using the juicer to make juice you can use it to steam vegetables, fish, and shell fish for meals. The bottom pan can also serve as a roaster or a soup kettle making it all round pot for both canning and meal preparation. It also comes with a recipe book.
