It Worked Well Except For ...
on September 24, 2013
I ordered this Nut Milk Bag after reading the online reviews and watching a YouTube Video by Ms. Diana Stobo. I purchased the bag to use for juicing/filtering the pulp to insure that my juices are smooth and completely free of pulp/fiber particles. I used the bag to filter seedless grapes, strawberries and peaches. I used a blender and filtered about 128-148 ounces of juice. The bag design is very good (pull string worked great) and the nylon seemed to be of good quality. Now, before purchasing this bag (first time using a nut bag), I was using a wired screen drainer that required 15-20 pour thru's the remove the pulp/fiber, but never completely. But, using this bag, I was very happy to see how much fiber/pulp it filtered from the juice - only had to filter the juice once vs 15-20 times with the screen drainer - excellent!
With the grapes, due to the pulp and fiber particles, I had to squeeze hard to force the liquid through the bottom of the bag. After about 64 ounces, I noticed that the stitching in one corner of the bag was coming apart. As a result, some fiber and pulp was leaking into my filtered juice. So, to complete the job, I had to position the bag slightly sideways to avoid the corner with a whole. With the exception of the whole in the bag corner, the bag really worked well. It also cleans up nicely - just dip into a bowl of dish washing liquid, swish around for 30-45 seconds, rinse and hang dry.
In closing, while I liked everything about the bag, durability was a problem. While I suspect that the bag would not last more than a year, I did not expect the seem stitching to come apart after the first time using it. I have since ordered an "E3Live Nut Milk/Sprouting Bag" that I reviewed via a YouTube video today. It seem to be very durable, but ... so did the Nut Milk Bag from Ms. Diana Stobo. Hope this review helps someone.
