you for your interest in Mehu-Liisa
over twenty five years my father, Osmo Heila, sold the Mehu-Maija and Mehu-Liisa steam juicers from Finland to thousands of satisfied
customers. It was his pleasure to provide a home canning and food processing product that is so trouble
free, and has been so valued and praised by its owners. I am very happy to continue Mehu-Liisa Products' steam-juicer business and carry on Osmo's high quality service.

Here's a quote I've heard countless times: "I borrowed my friend's juicer
and I loved it! Now I would like to get one of my own."
- How does the Mehu-Liisa Juicer work?
A gentle steam process opens the juice cells in fruits and vegetables.
Then the juice falls into the juice kettle, and you drain it into bottles
or jars. No mess!

- Is the Mehu-Liisa complicated to use?
Not at all! Making juice at home is easy with Mehu-Liisa. Here are the
four simple steps: 1) Fill the water pot and place on stove to boil. 2)
Rinse fruit, berries, vegetables, etc. and place in steam basket. No need
to pit or stem! 3) Steam for 40-70 minutes. 4) Drain pure fresh juice
into jars or bottles and seal. It really is that easy. No hassel. No mess.

- Where is the Mehu-Liisa made?
I'm proud to say that the Mehu-Liisa is made in Finland (my father's country of
birth) by OPA, OY. Finnish products are known for their outstanding quality
and design. I sell one of the original steam juicers. Don't be fooled
by cheap imitations!
"On todella hyva ja erinomainen vehje terveisin tytto Suomen Turusta.
(This is a really good product, an excellent device. Greetings from a
young Finnish lady from Turku)" -Marjukka-
- Does the heat destroy any of the vitamins?
The steam only passes through the fruits and then out the lid. That way
the juice is never heated too high. Many fruits, especially grapes, loose
their vitamin C potency within a few hours of being picked. With Mehu-Liisa
you can add some vitamin C (by sprinkling "Fruit Fresh" on top of the fruit
in the basket) to enhance the nutritional value of the juice you are making.
"I use my juicer about once a week for over 40 kinds of fruits. It is
wonderful!" -K.W. Auburn, NY
- Do you sell a cookbook for the Mehu-Liisa?
Yes, it's free! Each order includes a cookbook with complete instructions
and many recipes including mixed juices, desserts, steam cooked foods,
and homemade wine.
"I like mine so much that I can't stop bragging about it, I pass on juicer
info to my friends. I'm 75 and still use the juicer for my juices and
jellies." -H.B. Scarborough, ME
- Is the steam process dangerous?
No, not at all. There is no steam pressure. The Mehu-Liisa is crafted
to allow the steam to gently escape through the lid. The only precaution
to be aware of is not letting the water pan boil dry.
"We love our juicer, especially my husband. We use it a lot." -L. H. Winchester,
- How big is the Mehu-Liisa?
The juicer is only about 16" tall and 11" at the base. It is very easy
to hold and fits on household stoves.
"This is a wonderful tool." -S.P. Oregon, IL
