  • Publication number: 20070125244
    Abstract: A reamer (50) for a citrus juicer (10) is formed from a plurality of ribs (53) including an upper profile and a lower profile. The ribs may be knife like to maximize juice extraction. Fruit may be brought into contact with the reamer by an actuating arm (70). The actuating arm preferably includes a four part linkage with a major pivot arm (80) and a minor pivot arm (85). In a motorized version, a housing (20) supports the reamer (50) and contains a motor and gear box (29). A juice collector (40) lies intermittent the housing (20) and the reamer (50), to collect the juice and optionally includes a filter (45) to remove pulp.

  • Publication number: 20070056450
    Abstract: A lid (12) of a juicer provides several important functions. It preventsjuice from escaping, it diverts pulp efficiently toward a collector (13) or chute (150), it cooperates with a locking bar to keep the device safe and closed and it provides a platform for the feed tube. The lid (12) comprises a polymeric cap (52) (for example a polycarbonate) to which is secured a metal, preferably stainless steel feed tube (51). Importantly the combination of clear cap (52) and steel feed tube provides all of the advantages of both, that is, adequate strength in the feed tube and knife and the ability to see under the cap.
