Description

MacIntosh™ Apple Cider Press

Please Note: Prices of many products are under unprecedented inflationary pressures now, and resupply continues to be very difficult with many delays. Factories are having trouble getting critical parts due to ongoing Covid-related supply chain disruptions, and overseas shipping costs passed “insane” weeks ago. In early 2021, we could ship a 40' container from overseas in for $5800. Currently it's $17,400 to $27,000. If gas had gone up as much, it would now cost over $200 to fill up a Honda Pilot. And the last change in container shipping rates was upward again. Our resupply lead-time for some goods has increased by 12 months. There are many other factors as well, and the bottom line is that retail goods prices will be going up, and availability will be going down. Increased general inflation means your dollars are worth less daily, making needed goods more valuable than cash. All of this means now is the time to order what you need, whether it’s still in stock for now, or on its way to us.

Apples in basketThe perfect apple cider press for everyone's back yard!

Turn your apples into delicious juice... and unforgettable family memories... with the MacIntosh apple cider press exclusively from Pleasant Hill Grain. With solid heavy duty construction, this press is built for quick and easy operation, and many years of reliable, trouble-free service.

Fast tip-off design: The frame yoke of the MacIntosh apple cider press quickly tips out of your way for easy basket loading and unloading access. The speed and convenience of this design makes everything work faster and easier.

Best materials: With its rugged yoke made of 1.5" steel tubing, a solid teak or stainless steel pressing basket and heavy gauge stainless steel pan, the MacIntosh cider press is built throughout with quality components that make it a joy to handle every time you use it. When shipped, the press legs are bolted down to a wooden board that you can use as a base, or reuse/recycle. The board prevents damage to the legs of the press during shipment.

  • “The MacIntosh is rugged, beautiful and functional. We absolutely love it and are very happy we bought it. Pleasant Hill Grain had the best combination of photos, descriptions, and helpful people on the telephone. Our best purchase of the year!”

    – Kimberly E., NH

There are presses on the market that look similar to the MacIntosh, but aren't as strong. At Pleasant Hill Grain we refine our product designs continually, often in ways that don't meet the eye. As one example, the MacIntosh fruit press has extra reinforcement under the tray to withstand higher force, allowing you to get more juice from your fruit without damaging the press.

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.

  • “I'm fully pleased… the press works even better than I had hoped. I will use your company again in the future!”

    – Jesse L., IL

The wood parts of the MacIntosh press arrive pre-sealed. For future maintenance, we have an excellent coating product available below.

Lubricating the Acme Screw

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.

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.
