Juice yield comparison from electric apple grinder

Our all-stainless electric apple grinder (aka apple crusher/pulper/pulverizer/masher) makes fine pulp of your apples, allowing your apple or fruit press to extract the maximum yield of delicious juice. With an updated baffle design in the feed chute, it will take whole apples, large or small, poured rapidly down the chute. It works equally well for pears and other soft, pitless fruit. Compared to pressing whole apples, this electric apple grinder lets you get up to four times as much juice from your fruit!

Sturdy & Corrosion-Free

All structural and contact parts are made from industrial grade AISI 304 stainless steel for long life and quick, easy cleanup. All construction is heavy-duty and rugged.

Powerful Motor

A hefty 2 hp (3,400 rpm) motor provides unlabored operation and years of reliable use. It grinds a pound of fruit per second to a perfect pulp for pressing!

Safety First

A lockout switch in the base of the unit requires the hopper/blade cover to be in place, or power will not be supplied to the motor. Baffles in the chute prevent hand contact with blades.

Home-Orchard or Community Group

Our electric apple grinder is perfect for the serious home-orchard owner or community group. The electric apple grinder is also known as a fruit crusher, pulverizer, masher, pulper, chopper, shredder, and electric apple scratter.

  • The perfect machine!
    By on - Verified Buyer
    I bought this apple grinder to process about ten tons of apples that we do every fall. It's absolutely perfectly balanced and unbelievably powerful. It processes the fruit like it's nothing and really moves the job forward. Best money I've spent on our family cider tradition! No regrets whatsoever!

    Pour the apples down the chute and WHOOSH they're pulped so fast you can't believe it. I appreciate the heavy duty construction too, even the chute is rigid, not tinny. The pulp consistency is ideal. Just a great machine, very well worth it.

  • Awesome Apple Grinder
    By on - Verified Buyer
    This grinder is awesome! I got the grinder in conjunction with a hydro press and they are an amazing team. I got into the habit of duct taping a plastic curtain on the back and two sides of the chute. This prevented the mush from getting on the motor or escaping the collection pot, making for no mess, and easier clean-up. I ground apples, pears, and quince with great success. Don't think I could ever grind apples by hand again.

  • Good grinder
    By on - Verified Buyer
    Much better then the meat grinder I started out with. This grinder goes through apples as fast as I can load them. Makes a nice mash that's easy to squeeze.

  • Awesome grinder
    By on - Verified Buyer
    For year's I used a hand grinder. Now that i am getting older i decided to buy this. My Honda 2000i generator powered it off eco mode. I got 24 quarts of apple juice from three 7 gallon buckets of apples which is a 20-25 % increase as it makes a much better mash than my hand grinder did. I also found that pressing twice would give me 4-5 extra qt's of juice per three 7 gallon buckets.

    One poster said it was hard to clean and i don't get that at all. This grinder takes no time to clean at all and i keep my stuff real clean. Love this thing and i had a small issue so i called pleasant hill and they where right therre to help me. so great service also.

    I received my apple grinder in 2 days all the way to Toronto Canada. It arrived as described. The unit looks very heavy duty. I can't wait to pour the bushels right into it.

  • Electric apple grinder is fantastic!
    By on - Verified Buyer
    This electric apple grinder is simply fantastic! It performs far beyond expectations; everything is made of durable, easy-to-clean stainless steel; it should last for literally generations to come. I just can't say enough good things about it. It would be a bargain at any price, because there is simply nothing like it for its purpose of grinding apples. A wonderful machine!

  • Apple Grinder
    By on - Verified Buyer
    Overall we were pleased with it. The only issue we had was apples would jam up occasionally and not flow through. We were very pleased with the speed.

    Jamming can happen if apples are "dumped" into the hopper, but if you "pour" the apples from your basket or bucket into the grinder's chute, jamming is very rare. The apples can still go in very rapidly, they just need to kind of flow in, versus being dumped all at once in a bunch. Thanks for your review, Ronald!
