Update on Mehu-Liisa Products

Well, its been quite a season. Mehu-Liisa products has been buffeted about on the unpredictable seas of small business a fair amount. As if the weak US dollar and rising stainless steel costs weren’t enough, I had to shut down my YahooStore and move my inventory to a new warehouse right in the middle of my busiest season.

Yikes! That hurt.

I worked diligently for three weeks to locate and transfer my inventory to a new reliable warehouse up in Michigan. Now, ordering is back up and units will start going out again beginning of next week. Phew! What a mess that was.

Also, as a few of you may have found out, there was a quality control issue at the factory in Finland this summer when they produced my fall inventory. It turns out that some juicers were showing up at customers homes without the lids and/or hoses and clamps.

So, I had the company send me replacements asap. They arrived just as the inventory was transferring to the new warehouse. I have tried to inform everyone of the situation and contact all customers who may be affected. I have a list of all customers who need lids and hoses and they will go out next week.

Let me know if you haven’t told me about missing parts. Email at contact@juicer-steamer.com

Other than all that, the juicer is selling well and more and more customers are getting to enjoy using the Mehu-Liisa. That’s a good thing!

    Hello,
    I have been enjoying my juicer for several years now. One if our favorite things to make with it is plum juice from ouwy Italian plum trees. We like touse larger jars, and I was wondering if you knew where a person could get kids that seal, but for big juice jugs. Like the kind one would purchase Apple juice in?

      Willow,

      I’m glad to hear that you are enjoying your juicer. I like the Italian plums as well! I use the juice for a morning drink (diluted with 1/3 water). Also, brooks plum juice gives my hard cider a beautiful light purple color and a slight, earthy plum flavor. I use 1:4 ratio of plum to sweet cider for the must.

      It is not advisable to use gallon juice jugs, like you find in the grocery, for storing your juice. A better idea is to use 1/2 gallon canning jars with dome and band lids. This assures a good seal on your jar. Of course, USDA guidelines recommend water-bath canning for fruit juice. Please consult your local extension agent for details.

      Here’s a link to my County Extension site: http://extension.oregonstate.edu/lane/food_safety
      They have many useful publications, many are free to download.

      Let me know how it goes and if you have any other questions.

      Happy New Year,
      Daniel
