How does it work?

The Black & Decker JE 2200B may be small but it does house a powerful 400 watt motor which is sufficient for most fruits and vegetables. It is super easy to use having only an on/off button with no speed selectors to confuse things. The motor drives a shaft with the stainless steel cutters at high speed in order to mash the fruit into a pulp. The high speed produces a centrifugal force which drives the pulp against the stainless steel strainer which allows the liquid to pass through whilst trapping the pulp. The pulp is ejected into the integrated pulp bin to be discarded later.
