If there is one major deterrent that keeps people from using juicers, it’s the idea that scrubbing the juicing machine will take longer than the juicing process itself. The Breville Ikon juicer has several convenient features that make cleaning simple and speedy so you will want to use your juicer every day, not leave it on the shelf to gather dust.
The Ikon Juicer (product review page) is easy to clean and nearly all parts are dishwasher safe. By lowering the locking bar, all of the parts that come in contact with fruits and vegetables can be easily removed. With the exception of the filter basket with its Nutri Disc and the food pusher, all of the parts can safely be washed in your dishwasher’s top rack. The manufacturers suggest lining the waste container with a plastic bag to make cleanup even more of a snap. Simply lift out the bag and discard the fibrous fruit and vegetable debris when you are finished juicing. Alternatively, the waste container can also be easily removed from the main unit, emptied, and hand washed or placed in the dishwasher.
The juicing unit itself cannot be washed in the sink or dishwasher, as it contains the motor and control panel. The unit can easily be wiped down with a cloth and any commercial stainless steel appliance cleaner to remove spots and smudges. Avoid using cleaners containing chlorine bleach or other cleaners known to discolor stainless steel. A convenient cleaning brush is also included. Use the brush to remove dust or plant bits from crevices and harder to reach parts of the machine.
Ease of cleanup is an important consideration with any juicer or blender. The Breville Ikon’s dishwasher safe parts and accessories make cleaning simple, freeing up more time for you to enjoy your fresh, healthful juice.
