Operating Instructions for the Electric Mr. Pea Sheller
Peas or beans should be ripe ( as for hand shelling ) before they are ready for the machine shelling. They should be fully developed and of sufficient size with the pea or edible portion about 1/4" or larger for best results. Peas that are too green or that have been allowed to dry very hard will present a problem.
Peas that have been gathered green and out in the refrigerator will be a problem unless allowed to come to room temperature and dry out a little.
Avoid feeding vines or other foreign objects through rollers. If motor fails, to start when cord is plugged in, give large pulley a gentle push in clockwise direction, and be careful!
To clean machine unplug electrical cord and wash off rollers and tray.
To lubricate the machine, unplug the electrical cord. Place a few drops of oil over the two screws holding the steel bearing support frames into place. Tilt machine and turn pulley by hand to allow oil to reach all brass bearing surfaces. Apply light grease to gears occasionally.
Apply a few drops of oil in each of the two holes in the motor about twice a year.
Belt should be loose, do not tighten the belt or use another belt other than that provided with your sheller.
The motor is thermally protected and will shut off in case of over heating. Should this happen, disconnect cord and allow motor to cool. Automatic reset in motor will let it start again when it is cool. Do not substitute a heavier duty motor for the one provided.
The Best Pea and Bean Shelling Ideas We Know
Beans and peas that just will not shell without mashing probably have either very tough pods due to growing conditions, or may be too green or too dry. These may be shelled very easily by using the following method:
The peas or beans, in the pod, are blanched in boiling water from one to four
minutes. Cool quickly in cold water. Now feed them through your MR.
This process makes the pods or hulls tender enough that even the thin skin around the peas or beans are not damaged, and you can shell them very quickly.
One minute blanching will usually soften the toughest of pods so that shelling is now easy. If you are preparing the produce for your freezer, then blanch the peas or beans four minutes and freeze after shelling.
1: Avoid getting your fingers too close to rollers.
2: Do not unplug cord if your hands are wet. Let the machine keep on running until your hands are dried. Likewise, should the motor stall due to too many peas or beans being fed through at once, it will not hurt the motor to stay on while you dry your hands.
3: Always store in a dry place and treat as any other electrical appliance.
