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 holes under high pressure, but our mesh bags are reusable and much more convenient.
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.
“Excellent press for the money. I teach outdoor education classes with K-8 students. This is the second press that I have bought. The two schools that bought and use them, absolutely love them. Easy to clean, and very sturdy. I highly recommend this press.”
– Mark F., MI
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.
We offer a wide selection of apple presses:!

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.|
|SD||Has moderate damage on a non-working surface, such as a scratch or dent in the housing.|
|NOS||A brand new item that isn't the newest model.|

By Eddy B. in MI on 2/21/2016 - Verified BuyerThe press works as expected. The only two drawbacks are:
1. The tripod design is unstable: when opening the yoke the whole thing tips over.
2. The stainless "basket" is not a basket, just a cylinder. It make is hard to remove the pulp.
It would be nice to have a basket with a handle.Moderator:
Eddy, we recommend using the holes in each of the feet to fasten the press down. That both prevents tipping and keeps the whole press from rotating as you turn the screw down (and back up again.) One option we've found handy is to screw the press down to a half sheet of plywood or chip board; if you go that route, be sure the board is large enough for the operator to stand on, so their weight on the board keeps the press from both tipping and rotating. About the "basket", that's traditionally the name used for the (traditionally) wood-slat cages surrounding the fruit, which, historically, don't have bottoms. We've tested stainless baskets with a bottom and found that they then rotate with the screw, which isn't really desirable. Thanks for the 5 star review and have fun!15 out of 15 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By Joe-boy in WA on 4/13/2018 - Verified BuyerFor making wine I have used two other presses. Both were the wooden slat type. While these types are more traditional they also require lots of maintanance. Once the fruit acids get through the original finish its virtually impossible to keep the slats from turning black. Consiquently, requiring about 30 minutes or more of preparation time with every use. This stainless basket is a quick wash w/ a soapy spung and a rinse w/ the hose and I'm making juice. I like the cast steel parts of this press over the bent pipe version offered. My thought is the pipe parts will "work" during pressing and will eventually crack. There's no way these cast steel beams are going to ever crack. As a retired logging equipment/ hydrolic mechanic this is just my personal opinion. This is an outstanding value in a fruit press.8 out of 8 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By Jud M. in ID on 9/19/2016 - Verified BuyerI've used this product once since setting it up and I'm very pleased with the Harvest Bounty press so far. It's built to last! I got the stainless steel cylinder and use it with a mesh bag and it performed very well. Clean up is very easy. I got the hand-crank grinder as well, and find that it likes the apples to be cut in half to process them well (whole apples get hung up easily) but that is not a problem. I would recommend this product to anyone.Moderator:
Jud, we're guessing that your apples are pretty crisp. Letting them ripen a bit more, or letting them sit for a couple of weeks after picking, will enhance feeding with the grinder. Thanks for your review!5 out of 5 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By Sy Choudhury in CA on 8/24/2017 - Verified BuyerBuilt very well and sturdy, which was key as we processed >50 lbs of pears for cider. The crank is very sturdy, and the mesh bags worked like a charm!1 person found this review helpful. Did you?
By JGH in CA on 9/13/2016 - Verified BuyerThe Harvest Bounty press is easy to set up and easy to clean. Effortless pressing and lots of fun. The only hard part is getting the apples off the trees!1 person found this review helpful. Did you?
By . in MN on 12/29/2018 - Verified BuyerPressing plate is still a little too small in diameter. Unless it is perfectly centered, the bag and pomace will squeeze out of the gap. Plan to cut my own plastic disk out of a cutting board and place it under the metal plate for a tight fitWas this review helpful to you?
By Lisa H. in MN on 9/1/2018 - Verified BuyerThe Maximizer Grinder and Harvest Bounty Press are wonderful! Heavy Duty, Built to last and easy to assemble and operate. Everything came very well packaged. I have used to crush and press grapes and apples so far. Economical and high quality. Very easy to clean too which is a big factor for me. I would recommend for average gardener or hobby farm family!Was this review helpful to you?
By GR on 8/22/2018 - Verified BuyerI have the 5 gallon stainless steel basket and I would 100% recommend purchasing this press. I chose this one because it's pretty light and easy to move around and also because it's all metal. It is SO easy to clean. I can't stress that enough. Probably takes 3-5 mins max and it's ready to be stored or used again. The basket and the juice tray both come off the press easily so all you have to do is take them off and rinse with a hose. I just wipe the pressing plate with a clean wet cloth or wet paper towel and then dry it off. It's pretty light and easy to lift which is also nice if you're using it by yourself. Someone left a review that said that the unit tips over if you swing the yoke to the side and this has not been an issue for me whatsoever. If you open it so that it's completely open then yes it would tip, but I can easily open it partially so that the basket is fully accessible and it doesn't tip. I just wanted to say that because when I read that review, I was worried that it would have to be bolted down but it hasn't been an issue for me at all. I actually find that the press doesn't even move when using it so I haven't had to bolt it down at all. I just place it on the ply wood that they ship it on. Anyways, I would completely recommend this press to anyone looking for an easy to use, easy to clean and easy to move press. Also the pressing bag fits perfectly and makes the clean up even faster.Was this review helpful to you?
