- Enables maximum juice yield
- Extremely durable
- Holds pulped fruit while pressing
- 1/32" holes contain nearly all pulp
- Machine washable
These high strength pressing/strainer bags have holes approximately 1/32". Disposable cotton cheesecloth is the traditional material to use for this purpose, but these mesh bags are much handier and they're very durable—one bag will last more than a season in normal use. They also speed the pressing process. Size is 14.5" diameter x 20" tall and they also work perfectly in smaller baskets.
If you press apples or other fruit without a cloth liner like this bag provides, at a relatively low level of pressure the pulp will start to shoot—and we do mean shoot—out through the larger gaps or perforations of the pressing basket. Without a bag, when you reach that point, no further pressure can be attainted because fruit will only continue to exit through the basket gaps. The mesh keeps pulp in the basket, allowing you to crank down on the batch with much more pressure and get much more juice from your fruit.
In addition to allowing much higher pressure and greater juice yields, these mesh bags also keep almost all pulp out of your squeezed juice, for a high degree of clarity even without filtering.
For effortless cleanup when you're done, just throw the bag in the washing machine with your next load of laundry! The bags are tough polyester, so you can use warm water and the regular wash cycle.

“The bag I got with my press has tears in it after three years. The fine mesh on this bag strains the cider for ready-to-drink juice.”

By David M. in GA on 4/12/2016 - Verified BuyerThe mesh bags fit the fruit press perfectly and strain our unwanted hulls, seed and pulp. They work great and are a real labor saver in our wine making process. Great accessory for the fruit press!2 out of 2 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By David A. in ME on 10/2/2018 - Verified BuyerPurchased one last year and figured I would like another on hand. Not because they are flimsy, but because I was rough with the first one and put some holes in it. Anyway. I discovered these bags sold here are nothing more than a laundry bag; I know this because I was coincidentally holding the two in hands and could compare. So save yourself a little money and buy a laundry bag at your local store. Sorry Pleasant Hill.Moderator:
No doubt a person could use one of these bags for laundry, but the typical laundry bag doesn't have the same strength that these bags do. Thanks for your review!1 person found this review helpful. Did you?
By Anne-Marie on 10/18/2017 - Verified BuyerIf were made a little better it would be rare to have to replace it as long as care was usedModerator:
Anne-Marie, we believe the quality is excellent and that these bags do last a long time as long as normal care is taken. If you have one that failed before it should have, please let us know and we'll replace it for free.1 person found this review helpful. Did you?
