Maximizer® Apple Grinder

Maximizer apple grinder juice comparisonWhen you need to turn apples to pulp, our exclusive Maximizer® apple grinder is the tool for the job. When pressing apples for apple cider, you'll get about three times more juice by pulping them first, compared to pressing them whole.

The Maximizer apple grinder uses strong stainless steel teeth set into a large stainless steel rotor. As apples are ground, the load on the grinder's teeth changes rapidly. The Maximizer's large twenty pound flywheel is an important feature, providing rotating mass that maintains speed and makes an otherwise jerky and difficult effort smoother and easier.

Some people like to grind into a bucket and dump into their cider press, mounting on a sawhorse or similar support. Others prefer to mount the grinder higher so the pulped apples drop directly into the pressing basket. Mounting slots are provided for either back or bottom mounting, and fruit pulp exits through the bottom discharge.

The Maximizer turns your apples into the right texture to get the most juice from your harvest. It can also be used with pears and other large, pit-free fruit. Like all Maximizer® products, this fruit grinder is built tank-heavy with a ductile iron body and 3/4” stainless axle rod for years and years of steady, reliable service. It's an heirloom-quality machine that can be expected to serve you, your children, and their children.

The Maximizer arrives assembled except for attachment of the flywheel and handle, which takes one to two minutes. The rotor can be reversed for turning from the opposite side.

An optional stainless steel hopper is available for the Maximizer grinder. 

  • “The weight of the flywheel and its handle made for very smooth operation. I was amazed at how fast the apples were ground. I was also impressed by the easy of cleaning. Took out the garden hose and rinsed the interior of all loose pieces of apple in minutes.”

    – Wayne K., VT
