Community & Demo Night: What's a Steam Juicer? @ Ottawa Tool Library | Ottawa | Ontario | Canada

The Steam Juicer is a great way to extract juice from any fruit and you can borrow it from our tool library inventory.

From fresh to frozen fruits or vegetables, the steam juicer transforms your produce into juice that can be made into sauces, purées, fruit butters, jellies, and even wine.

Our tool library member Dan has extensive experience using this marvelous tool and is eager to share his knowledge.

If you haven’t been to the OTL or Makerspace North before, it can be a bit tricky to find us, for accessibility information and directions, please check here.
