Is Your Steam Juicer Made Of Stainless Steel?

stainless steel juicerHello,
I was wondering if you could help me out. My plums are about ripe and i would like to use a steam juicer on them. I need to know if the one you show on your website is made of stainless-steel or is it an aluminum?

Dear Gladys,
The steam juicer we offer is made of heavy-gauged, 18/10 stainless steel with the exception of the lid which is made of both stainless steel and highly tempered glass. The hose is made of high-grade silicone tubing, which will stand up very well to the temperatures involved with steam juicing.
We used to sell an aluminum one year ago, however we discovered that the collection pan tended to pit too easily from the acid in the juice. From time to time someone would leave residual juice in the pan overnight or whatever and the bottom would be all corroded and pitted when they’d go to clean it.
