Week beginning December 9th - Jerry the Juicer (2009 - 2013)

'Oh Jerry...' 'Poor Jerry', 'Jerry behind please...' 'Can you wash Jerry please?' 'Jerry's been left in his own mess again'. Anyone who has worked here over the years will know who he is. I'm pretty sure it was "the legend that is Rhea' that named him back in August 2009.

I had searched and searched for a quality, small footspace juicer in the lead up to opening and at over £300, Jerry was a big investment. Originally he was placed on our front bench, but once winter kicked in and we started with soups and porridge, he had to be moved to make room. He was beautiful though, small, sleek, quiet, shiny, silver and he made great juice.

For the past four years he has ended up on what is known as 'Jerry's Plinth', basically the electrical cupboard against the back wall near the front. It's not ideal, but it was the only place for him.

We have calculated that in the last 2 years alone he has made 4,263 orange juices and almost 500 citron presses, so if we include the time before such records began, 2009 to 2011, he must have made over 10,000 drinks.

We had to retire Jerry this week. He was noisy, really noisy, a bit wobbly and broken in parts. Here he is. We have a newer model of the same type and he is, well dare I say it, even better than Jerry was. Much, much quieter and faster. The girls on service are much happier.
