Advice for use

There are a number of tips that DO need to be considered for the crusher to function properly. We must use cold water because if hot water is used, the grease tends to remain stuck to the pipes, instead of coming down with the water flow. This prevents the crushing of materials such as vegetables, fish, egg shells, fruit waste, bones and shells in general.

Remember, to use it with plenty of cold water. Do not even hesitate to crush ice from time to time, to keep parts clean and allow them to rotate freely.

Similarly, there are certain things we should NOT do. Do not turn off the crusher until you have finished crushing all the waste, do not crush very fibrous waste such as celery, corn cob leaves, etc … Since this type of waste tends to form obstructions of hard fibers that interfere with crushing components and above all, you never have to crush shells of clams or oysters, glass, metal, fabrics, pour strong chemicals, or hot oil.

Never crush with hot water. This prevents proper engine cooling and causes loss of warranty.
