Clearance: Tabletop Fruit Press 1.25 Gallon

This is an R1 clearance item. Please check the tables below to see how we rate our clearance items.

Excellent for apples or grapes, this extremely well-built 1.25 gallon press is great for smaller production quantities. The press includes an anti-rotation plate that can be screwed to your choice of surfaces; one handy approach is to screw the plate to a small sheet of plywood which can then easily be clamped to your table or other support. After the anti-rotation plate is fastened down, the main press assembly can be lifted out and replaced in a moment. After a pressing cycle, the stainless side rods flex apart at top to allow the assembly of screw yoke, forcing screw and pressing plate to be lifted out for removal of the spent apple pomace.

  • “Nice fruit press, good price, shipped fast. Thank you!”

    – F. Sankey, CA

The tabletop press is also perfect for making nut milk including almond milk, soy milk, rice milk and coconut milk, as well as squeezing honey from the comb.

The pressing basket measures 5-3/4" x 11-1/8" high and is constructed of heavy gauge (.035") polished stainless steel. The pressing plate is also stainless steel and it measures 5.5" diameter. The juice tray and the anti-rotation plate are made of heavy duty, food grade plastic. Overall height of the press with the pressing screw turned down is 15", and the base plate measures 7-3/4" x 7-3/4". Handle length is 9-3/4".

The press includes a fine-mesh, food-grade nylon pressing bag that contains mash even under very high pressure. A 5/8" x 8-3/4" drain tube attaches to the drain spout of the juice tray. A plastic sleeve is included, to be slipped over the outside of the pressing basket, for some foods that may otherwise squirt juice during pressing.

If you ever want to press only a very small quantity of your product at a time, you can do that with this press because when fully turned down, the pressing plate reaches all the way to the pan, leaving zero gap.

  • “Impressed by the quality and the simple nature of this table top press. It’s built for use.”

    – Nathan C., IN

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

Mounting screws for the anti-rotation plate are not included.

  3. Discount percentages for R1 and R2 items are minimum discounts... Some items are marked even lower.

  5. Important: All clearance items may have been exposed to various allergenic foods.


Bottom Line: If you’re a highly detail-oriented person, we recommend sticking to “R1.” But after a week’s use, the only real difference between one of these items and a brand new one will be the money you saved.

Expanded Ratings Descriptions

R1 Very close scrutiny is required to tell that the item isn’t brand new. Working surfaces may show slight wear; for example, the bottom-inside of a Bosch mixer bowl may show swirl marks because Bosch mixer whips are designed to “float” against bottom of bowl. Non-working surfaces (cabinet, control panel) look essentially new. Carton may not be perfect.
R2 Typically has a small scuff or mark on a non-working surface like a mixer cabinet or the top of a pressure cooker lid.
FR Mostly returned items which have been brought fully up to new-equipment performance specs at the factory.
D Demonstration items have been operated briefly at Pleasant Hill Grain.
DIS These items have never been used but we no longer sell them at full price in our store because it was discontinued by us or by the manufacturer.
U Has had light use.
SD Has moderate damage on a non-working surface, such as a scratch or dent in the housing.
NOS A brand new item that isn't the newest model.

    It is built sturdy but is difficult to hold while turning press. I should have purchased a heavier bigger model with more stability and easier turning ability.

    Actually, by using the provided socket plate (also referred to in the description as an anti-rotation plate), the press doesn't need to be held at all by the operator. The socket plate can be screwed to a table, countertop or bench, then the press is set into the plate with the feet of the press in the sockets of the plate. Many users screw the socket plate to a small piece of plywood or OSB. Then the board can be held to a table, countertop or bench with a couple of small c-clamps. This method doesn’t require making holes in any furniture and lets you easily use the press in any location you wish. With the press secured this way, turning is easy. Thanks for your review, David.

    This is just what the doctor ordered. With the press and the mesh bag, I get the most juice out of my apples. Couldn't be a happier guy, Thanks again

  • Works well
    By on - Verified Buyer
    If you are juicing a small amount of fruit this works well. We used it for apples. The bolt at the base leaked. I may just need to be tightened but it wasn't enough to be a big deal.

  • Excellent!!!

    I love my press! I salt and soak vegetables in vinegar, before preserving them in EVOO (extra virgin olive oil). Squeezing them by hand was so hard and time consuming... not anymore! :)

    The press was the best to squeeze out the juice from grated potatoes when we make a family recipe called Rappie pie.

  • I'm totally pleased and excited!
    By on - Verified Buyer
    I purchased the press for apples, but just couldn't wait to try it I purchased (not on sale... aagh) a bunch of tomatoes at the local store. I love the press! It was easy to understand, to put together, and to use! Even cleaning was easy. I do need to get a board to anchor it, but for a few tomatoes... and an excited little old lady... it was perfect! I can't quit talking about it to my prepper group, my senior group... or the kids at school where I work! It's marvelous!
