Description

MacIntosh™ Apple Cider Press

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 oak 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 frame is compact but sturdy, and feels like you can put a lot of pressure on the fruit to squeeze out maximum juice. I also like that the optional grinder is separate from the press as one person can work the press while another grinds fruit for the next batch.”

    – Kristine H., VT

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 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.

  • “Everyone at PHG were a pleasure to work with. You got my order out fast and I was crushing apples just four days after ordering.”

    – Holli E., VA

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

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

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 and are both excellent choices.
