Established 1926

Designed in 1926 by Isaac Zaksenberg, the Zaksenberg Juicer is the world’s first juicing machine. Zaksenberg had an iron foundry in Warschaw, but decided to immigrate to Palestine with his family as the country was experiencing a building boom. He opened a foundry in Jaffa and tried to produce taps and parts for pumps to irrigate the orange groves.

During this time, Isaac started working on his iconic juicer. Many prototypes were produced before the final product was ready to be patented. Once on the market, the Zaksenberg Juicer was an instant success and grew out to become a real legend. Today, the Zaksenberg Juicer remains a symbol of Israel and it enjoys a prominent place in kiosks and bars alike.
