Clearance: Glenwood Fruit Press 20 Liter-GSAM + Wood Basket

This is an R1 clearance item. Please check the tables below to see how we rate our clearance items.

Pile of harvested applesCommercial quality, larger-capacity presses: Whether you have a few apple trees or a larger orchard or vineyard, the Glenwood apple cider presses provide the top quality construction and superior design features you need. The Glenwood cider presses feature the same extremely stout construction quality as our Maximizer presses, and adds a basket swing-out feature that lets you dump spent pulp out the bottom of the basket. The frame of the Glenwood apple presses have the strength to withstand tremendous pressure, and the acme-threaded forcing screw and solid ratchet mechanism make it easy to create that pressure. (The forcing screw is 1" diameter on the 5.3 gallon model 9.5 gallon model.) The Glenwood presses let you quickly and easily develop pressures that will send other presses to the scrap heap. Higher pressure = higher juice yields and more production in less time.

Fast tip-off design

With the pull of a single pin, the upper yoke of the Glenwood tips fully out of your way for full basket loading-and-unloading access. The speed and convenience of this design makes the pressing operation fast and easy.

Best materials

A frame made of 3/16" wall thickness steel tubing combines with a solid oak or stainless steel pressing basket and stainless steel pan to make the Glenwood apple cider presses you'll enjoy using for many years. The Glenwood presses arrive assembled except for the simple operation of bolting legs on.

Basket Swing feature

The Glenwood oak basket fruit presses feature an integrated basket swing-out mechanism to speed dumping of the spent fruit pulp.

New Fast Retract feature

The Glenwood presses now feature a very handy Fast Retract spinner knob. After the juice has been squeezed from a batch of fruit and the forcing screw has been ratcheted backward a few strokes to relieve pressure, the Fast Retract knob lets you spin the forcing screw and pressing plate back up to the top of the basket much faster than would be possible with the long handle.

For more details please see the specs tab, above.

The Glenwood press arrives in two shipping boxes and requires minor assembly. The Maximizer grinder is not included.

The wood parts of the Glenwood presses arrive pre-sealed. For future maintenance, we offer EZ-DO food-safe wood sealer.

It's important to keep the acme forcing screw well lubricated with food safe grease; this greatly reduces wear and turning effort, and dramatically increases maximum pressure and juice yield.

We recommend ordering an accessory mesh basket-liner bag to use with the press. Traditionally, disposable cheesecloth is used to keep finer fruit pulps from squirting out between the basket slats under high pressure, but our mesh bags are reusable and much more convenient.

Apple Grinders

Maximizer apple grinder

As with any press, to get good juice yield from apples you need to pulp them first. Proper pulping lets you get three to four times as much juice from the apples, compared to pressing the fruit whole.

Our Maximizer™ apple grinder and Electric Apple Grinder are both excellent choices.

Bottom Line: If you’re a highly detail-oriented person, we recommend sticking to “R1.” But after a week’s use, the only real difference between one of these items and a brand new one will be the money you saved.

Expanded Ratings Descriptions

R1 Very close scrutiny is required to tell that the item isn’t brand new. Working surfaces may show slight wear; for example, the bottom-inside of a Bosch mixer bowl may show swirl marks because Bosch mixer whips are designed to “float” against bottom of bowl. Non-working surfaces (cabinet, control panel) look essentially new. Carton may not be perfect.
R2 Typically has a small scuff or mark on a non-working surface like a mixer cabinet or the top of a pressure cooker lid.
FR Mostly returned items which have been brought fully up to new-equipment performance specs at the factory.
D Demonstration items have been operated briefly at Pleasant Hill Grain.
DIS These items have never been used but we no longer sell them at full price in our store because it was discontinued by us or by the manufacturer.
U Has had light use.
SDB Has moderate damage or blemish on a non-working surface, such as a scratch or dent in the housing, or paint blemish.
NOS A brand new item that isn't the newest model.

  • Heavy duty it is
    By on - Verified Buyer
    No kidding, this press is BUILT. Apples don't give up their precious juice without some serious persuasion, and this baby is The Persuader. Can't recommend it highly enough. Get one, you'll like it.

  • Outstanding apple press, great buy.
    By on - Verified Buyer
    Heavy duty press, very efficient to operate. Powdercoat finish is nice and tough. Keep the screw well lubed and it turns easy. I noted another user's comment on adding leg extensions. Glad that worked for them but I like having the handle height as-is. We use a shorter bucket from a bakery that cake frosting came in. It fits and holds as much juice as I'd want to handle at one time anyway. The auxiliary spinner knob on the shaft head makes retraction a breeze, good feature. The ordering process couldn't have been easier or better, PHG folks are nice to work with. A sound investment all the way around, very happy.

  • A Bargain For The Best
    By on - Verified Buyer
    I am an engineer and very sensitive to the quality of engineering designs. However, without much experience using cider presses I could only analyze the available data and had to rely heavily on others with experience. I read many reviews and asked lots of questions. After narrowing the choices down to just a few, I contacted the suppliers to ask some final questions and discovered only one supplier (Pleasant Hill) had actually prepared their staff by giving them hands-on experience with the products they sell. I was fortunate to reach their service rep, Barbara. She was well informed and answered all my questions about their many cider presses to my satisfaction. However, she went one step further and, understanding my requirements, made a couple of very valuable suggestions based upon her product knowledge and personal experience. She recommended this (Glenwood) cider press over another in their inventory because of a couple of convenient features that we would benefit from. Ultimately, we took her recommendations and found the integrated speed knob on the press hub to be a fantastic feature. Also, the built-in mounting provision (GSAM) for the apple grinder was extremely useful because, in the end, we also purchased the Maximizer apple grinder. Barbara's insightful recommendations saved us much valuable time and effort. So why only 4 stars? A minor fabrication error... one of the 4 press legs was ~1/4" shorter and had to be shimmed to make the press sit flat.

  • Beet syrup requires high heat and high pressure
    By on - Verified Buyer
    We're pressing beets for beet syrup, a process that requires high heat and pressure. With the high heat, wood basket slats of other units would swell to the point the gaps closed, stopping extraction. With its stainless basket, stainless tray along with all its other features, this press turns an arduous job into an awesome family time together. Thanks for a very superior product that no one will ever regret buying!

  • Nice Product, Easy to Use and Clean
    By on - Verified Buyer
    Seems to be very well built and has good pressing ability. I only had a half bushel of apples left from last year to try out the press but it worked pretty well. The only complaint I have is that there is not enough clearance under the press for a container to catch the cider. I made 3 inch leg extensions and now I can get a 12 inch bucket under. I will give it a more thorough test this apple season.

  • Right tool for the job.
    By on - Verified Buyer
    You can accomplish a lot with this press, but I wouldn't exactly call it "work". Between the generous capacity, quick tip-off yoke for loading/unloading, and nifty ratchet mechanics, everything just flows without much effort. Including the juice, lots of juice--with the pressure this bad boy develops, the spent pulp is very dry indeed. My couple of questions were answered expertly by a delightful young lady on the phone and my online order proceeded hitch-free. Shipping was shockingly rapid, packaging exemplary. I got the Maximizer apple grinder and recommend it as well, you won't get the juice yield you want without the right kind of pulverization and the Maximizer really gets that job done.

  • Update to my cider press review
    By on - Verified Buyer
    Thanks so much for handling my issue with the threaded shaft on the apple crusher. The new one got here within a couple days and fit perfect. I sure enjoy my press, I've done a pickup load of apples and made about 20 gallons of cider already. I look forward to getting a few more items for next years apple harvest from you folks.

    Thanks again,
    Leo from Whitefish Montana
