General Question

This is going to sound stupid, but where do you store your juicer machine?

Asked by pleiades (6571points) April 23rd, 2014

I’ve never really owned a juicer or a blender and I grew up in an apartment. Now, in my own apartment and a new owner of a juicer I don’t know storage procedures!

Do you put your juicer away after each use? Or do you have a space on the counter top dedicated to it? The reason I ask, and I feel so stupid for asking this question is because I’m only realizing now how small of a kitchen we are in.

I think it would depend on space and usage. If you use it everyday, I would probably leave it out if you have the counter top space.
I personally don’t like to have things out on my counters except for my toaster which I use every day. Everything else is put up, but I have a lot of storage space.

I’ll say that’s not a stupid question as I cannot find a good place for mine either. Kitchens obviously were not made for extra appliances with awkward and numerous attachments.

@ARE_you_kidding_me Do you just leave it out then? Hehe

We leave ours on the counter because it’s more convenient, but we have plenty of counter top space.

When I had one, I kept it on the counter. It was large and heavy; I was not prepared to schlep it around. Even dismantling it for washing was a pain. I finally got fed up with the whole process. A large glass of carrot juice, while delicious, generated about 10 lbs of pulp. Any spillage stained my clothes orange. (Juiceman, Jr.)

Mine is in a cupboard under the counter where I most often use it. I don’t keep it out because it takes up a lot of space. if you are using it regularly it’s best to leave it on the countertop, in a corner. I use the mixer/grinder almost everyday so I have kept it on the counter (sideways against the wall).

The appliances I use daily I keep out on my counter. For me that is a toaster and a toaster oven. That probably sounds crazy. LOL.

I prefer no appliances on the countertops, but I can’t be bothered putting an appliance away and taking it back out every day or even every other day. Once a week maybe I would bother to put it away, that would be my minimum I think. Even that is pushing it.

I think it is just personal preference. If I came to your house and saw a juicer on the counter I would not find it unusual or disorganized. I might ask what juice combinations you put together.

Right now it’s on the counter because I use it every day. Once opim done with this cleanse I will probably put it in the pantry or a cubbard.
Which one did you end up buying?

My juicer is in a big drawer under my least used counter and has been for about eleven years without any interruptions.

@susanc That sounds like my squeezer juice thingy. I don’t like the one I bought when I first got married, and instead of buying one I do like, I just never squeeze any oranges or grapefruits. I have moved with it 5 times I think. Haven’t used it since the first house. Now I live back in FL and I can buy fresh squeezed right in the store again. The real deal, not Tropicana stuff.

On the counter as far back against the wall as posibble.

Yep, mine was on the counter, for about 3 years, until I gave it away. haha
Too much trouble.
It went with my eliptical that sat at the foot of my bed for 3 years too, with about 20 miles on it, a glorified bra hanger. lol
