1. A fruit and vegetable juicer, comprising a horizontal grating disc rotatable about a substantially vertical axis;

  • a substantially frusto-conical filter sieve surrounding said grating disc and being integral with said grating disc, said filter sieve having sides which project upwardly and outwardly from said grating disc;

    a feed tube arranged above said grating disc;

    a food pusher insertable into said feed tube and pressing fruit and vegetable down onto said grating disc for grating so that pulp and juice thereby produced fly upwardly and outwardly and the juice pass through said filter sieve while the pulp pass over said filter sieve for subsequent collection, said feed tube having an internal diameter which is substantially equal to a diameter of said grating disc;

    at least one knife provided in said feed tube and having an upwardly directed cutting edge, said at least one knife being attached to and supported by said feed tube, said food pusher being formed so as to pass downwardly past said at least one knife so that a downward movement of said food pusher causes fruit and vegetables to be cut by said cutting edge of said at least one knife and pressed onto said grating disc, while said fruit and vegetable is held against rotation by said at least one knife.
