Tabletop Fruit Press 1.25 Gallon
Excellent for apples or grapes, this extremely well-built 1.25 gallon press is great for smaller production quantities. The press includes an anti-rotation plate that can be screwed to your choice of surfaces; one handy approach is to screw the plate to a small sheet of plywood which can then easily be clamped to your table or other support. After the anti-rotation plate is fastened down, the main press assembly can be lifted out and replaced in a moment. After a pressing cycle, the stainless side rods flex apart at top to allow the assembly of screw yoke, forcing screw and pressing plate to be lifted out for removal of the spent apple pomace.

The tabletop press is also perfect for making nut milk including almond milk, soy milk, rice milk and coconut milk.
The pressing basket measures 5-3/4" x 11-1/8" high and is constructed of heavy gauge (.035") polished stainless steel. The pressing plate is also stainless steel and it measure 5.5" diameter. The juice tray and the anti-rotation plate are made of heavy duty, food grade plastic. Overall height of the press with the pressing screw turned down is 15", and the base plate measures 7-3/4" x 7-3/4". Handle length is 9-3/4". The press includes a fine-mesh, food-grade nylon pressing bag that contains mash even under very high pressure. A 5/8" x 9-1/2" drain tube attaches to the drain spout of the juice tray. A plastic sleeve is included, to be slipped over the outside of the pressing basket, for some foods that may otherwise squirt juice during pressing.
It's important to keep the forcing screw well lubricated with food safe grease; this greatly reduces wear and turning effort, and dramatically increases maximum pressure and juice yield.

Works great for what we use it for (apple juice and hard cider) once we freeze then thaw the apples. The juices just flows out.16 out of 16 people found this review helpful. Did you?
I use the press for making herbal tinctures. It gets every last drop out of the herbs!10 out of 10 people found this review helpful. Did you?
Been making almond milk every week for many years. This is a great replacement for tired hands. I do feel it needs the food grade lube, otherwise, great product.7 out of 7 people found this review helpful. Did you?

I work with solid equipment in the oilfield and this press fits in that category. Impressive quality, solid build! We even used it with the straining bags to press out our home made hot sauce that was in an oak barrel for three years! Worked perfect!

This press is beautiful. I have searched for quite some time, because in my mind I knew what I wanted and wasn't about to settle. So happy I finally found this. Construction is high quality, easy to clean and works perfectly. I would give 10 stars!6 out of 6 people found this review helpful. Did you?
I have a Breville Citrus Press that makes a half gallon of orange juice per use. Unfortunately, it does not extract every drop of juice from the orange pulp. While manually squeezing the pulp in cheesecloth is effective, it's also incredibly messy. This tabletop press tidily and efficiently removes over a cup of delicious juice from pulp that would otherwise be discarded. Great product, much easier to use and clean than cheesecloth!5 out of 5 people found this review helpful. Did you?
I used it many times over the harvest season & was so grateful for the quality & ease of use. It was a Godsend for making my elderberry syrup! Thank you!5 out of 5 people found this review helpful. Did you?
This is an appealing unit and the size and price was great for my needs, but it isn't built to last. I just purchased this unit to press some apples I've already pulped. So far I've run about a dozen pressings and despite greasing the threads before each press as well as trying to be gentle with the pressure, it continues to strip the main screw and create sharp shavings. While a great sanitary metal, stainless steel is relatively soft and shears easily... a poor choice for this application. I would expect longer durability for the amount this costs. I would recommend choosing a product with a more wear resistant pressing screw, but I'm not sure there is anything comparable in this price class.Moderator:
We're sorry the press isn't working right, Aram. What you describe isn't typicaly of other users' experiences, and we'll be happy to pay return shipping on this unit if you decide you'd like to return it for a full refund. Thanks for the review!4 out of 4 people found this review helpful. Did you?
