Excellent except for a few personal design issues
However, I think it has two design issues that I personally didn’t care for. Some people might not bother with these issues, some might think they are non-issues, and yet some might even see them as an advantages – I just didn’t care for them.
First, it’s middle section pot (which holds the pasteurized juice) has to fit exactly in the bottom section pot (which holds the water). This is because the spout that pours out the juice (on the middle section pot) is exactly at the bottom side and it hits the top edge of the bottom section pot.
In turn, the two pieces fit together like a puzzle. On the outset, that is good – there are advantages to that; however, my problem is that this enables pulp to mix with your pasteurized juice. Because the spout is right at the bottom, all the pulp that settles on the bottom drains with the juice (some people might like this, but I don’t). I’d rather have the spout be slightly higher on the pot, so that the sediment and pulp will nestle below it and not mix with my juice.
Second, the other design issue I don’t care for is the size of the water pot on the bottom section. It is too small for my likes. Now don’t get me wrong, the Mehu-Liisa did this on purpose because they made up for the smallness of the bottom section pot to increase the size of the juice basket; and it is huge – so in turn you have less space to boil water, and more space for fruit.
Again, there are trade-offs. I’d prefer having a larger pot to boil water in, and a smaller basket for the fruit. This is because I think it is easier to change out the fruit (since it is on top) than to change out the water (since it is on bottom). With a larger pot of water, I change it out less often.
Regardless which model of juice steamer you pick, the Mehu-Lissa is top of the line for quality and will probably last the longest – however, these two design issues I just described – you should at least be aware of, and decide for yourself if they are deal-breakers or not.
Superb for making juice, jelly, and syrup
Love this time and flavor saver.
I plant a LOT of tomatoes and can them in sauce, spaghetti sauce, chili, ketchup, etc, etc, etc…. Before my steam juicer I had to boil the tomatoes and then run them through a sieve and then cook them AGAIN to boil of some of the excess liquid and thicken the sauce. This left the tomatoes tasting a little over processed (and sometimes even a little scorched) and took hours and hours to do. With the steam juicer, the excess juice is already removed and when you put the remaining tomatoes through the sieve (I use my kitchen aid mixer attachments) the sauce is perfect just the way it is. No need to process again which leaves a much fresher tasting product. I love my Mehu-Liisa!
Making Jelly never been this easy
I also used Amazon super-saver shipping and received it unbelievably fast. It has been a successful purchase from beginning to end. There are cheaper versions, but based on other reviews here on Amazon I went with the Mehu-Liisa and I am glad I did.
