This is my electric juicer, a blender which chops, grinds, stirs and liquefy fruits or vegetables. I constantly use this for the red round onions at the first sign of colds and coughs. Mixing one onion, lukewarm water with lemon and honey inside this osterizer ease my colds and coughs. Continuous taking of this juice for 2 weeks for a runny nose is an alternative home remedy. By the way, onions have anti-bacterial properties to alleviate such symptoms at the first signs of them. This small, sturdy equipment in my kitchen makes every grinding chore easy and light. In a minute or two, a juice of tomatoes or any raw vegetables and fruits are ready for serving. Another big plus in the kitchen.
