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. 

The wood parts of the Harvest Bounty press arrive pre-sealed. For future maintenance, we have a good coating available below.

  • A great press for the money!
    By on - Verified Buyer
    The 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.
    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!

  • Most sanitary of all the presses
    By on - Verified Buyer
    For 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.

  • Excellent Apple Cider Press
    By on - Verified Buyer
    High quality, heavy-duty well built cider press. Very easy to use. Just pick up a small can of food-grade stain and coat the wooden basket with it, let it dry for a couple days. Works excellent if you use an apple grinder first. then put the apple pulp into the press. You'll get 3-4 times more cider than if you just chop the apples into small pieces. Should be able to get a 2 gallon bucket full of cider out of each full basket of apple grindings (we got the larger basket on our press, and always got ~2 gallons per basket full). No need for those expensive $700-800+ presses, this one does the exact same thing... you just need to buy the apple grinder separately (we clamped ours to a picnic table then filled up 5 gallon buckets with apple grindings, then dumped those into the press). Kids love making cider and squishing the apples. We freeze it in quart ziplock freezer bags then thaw one out when we want to drink one. On the apple grinder... it works best if you chop em in half then throw em in the grinder... and crank it over a few turns then backwards a turn, then forwards again a few turns... that keeps it from getting clogged up. When all said and done, just spray the press and grinder really well with a hose then let it dry off before storage for next use or next year. We made 15-20 gallons of fresh cider with ease last fall from old apple trees on the old farm property.

    Our wood baskets do come presealed now, but periodic maintenance is certainly in order. It's crucial to keep the forcing screw lubed with food grade grease too, both for the (dramatic) reduction of turning effort and for wear and rust prevention. Also it's worth noting that juice yields vary widely depending on the juiciness of the apples being used. Thanks for your review Nicholas, lots of good tips!

  • Impressive Press
    By on - Verified Buyer
    I'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.

    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!

  • Simply Amazing
    By on - Verified Buyer
    I was absolutely and pleasantly surprised at how well this press worked. Very well made and stable on the wooden base its shipped on. Absolutely be sure to get mesh bags. Excellent quality and good looks to boot.

  • Solidly built
    By on - Verified Buyer
    This press worked great for an abundant apple crop. If the apples are run through a food processor or masher before pressing, we would get 2-3 gallons of cider per pressing. We plan to use the bolts to attach it to a sturdier base - it ships with a small plywood base. Smooth working, easy to clean. Don't forget to order reusable mesh bags.

    The wood base that our presses arrive bolted-to is there for protection of the press during shipping. We do recommend using the holes in the press feet to fasten the press down securely during use. Presses can be bolted to a deck or pinned to the ground (heavy round tent pegs work well). Another option is fastening the press to a sheet of plywood large enough for the screw operator to stand on, which will prevent unwanted rotation of the whole press when the forcing screw is being turned. Thanks for your review Kathryn, and for your business. Happy pressing!

  • Great investment
    By on - Verified Buyer
    Well constructed, we filled it up with bashed apples and got a good gallon of the best apple juice we ever tasted. We would like more information on bashing tools. My husband used a stick which was very tedious. Great buy!!

  • Worked great!
    By on - Verified Buyer
    Built 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!

    Product is well built. Works as it should. If you are looking for a durable press that should last for decades buy this one.

  • Easy peasy.
    By on - Verified Buyer
    The 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!
