Quality 18L Fruit Press incl pulp bag and 7l Fruit mill with crank handle

Description

The set includes a 7L fruit grinder and a 18L fruit press. With the fruit mill you can process fruit or even vegetables, which is too coarse for further processing in the supplied fruit press, to a mash.
A good fruit mash is essential for the production of juice, wort or must. This Fruit mill is well-suited for grinding berries, grapes, apples, pears, potatoes and other soft fruit/vegetables. However, harsh fruit and vegetables like sugar beets, carrots as well as immature and firm pome fruit respectively are not suitable for the processing.

Apples, pears, quince and similar related fruit are particularly ideal for further processing. The relatively firm fruit pulp is crushed by the fruit mill; by this means the mash being produced, increases the yield of juice and ensures the pressing of fruit respectively.
However, - and this holds also true for stone fruit - the grapes, raspberries, currants and similar fruit should not be ground. Anyway, this becomes unnecessary due to the soft nature of their flesh, just being covered by a thin skin. Due to the seeds contained in the fruit, the grinding process causes bitter substances to be released. This would turn the juice a dark brown colour.

Using this crusher for fruit and vegetables the products to be ground obtain their perfect consistency. The solid cutting mechanism (alloy of aluminum) is easily guided by manual operation. The funnel made of stainless steel is mounted on a base frame of square-cut steel tube. The funnel has a capacity of 7 liters. The base frame is equipped with rubber feet for a safe stand.

This manually operated chopper for fruit and vegetable has the dimensions 57.5 x 48.5 x 25.5 cm. It is easy to be cleaned and provides for a rich yield of fruit.
The processing of the pressed mash takes place with the robust berry press with ideal juice yield; Very high pressure due to a metal spindle construction.. Unlike some other suppliers, the press basket is manufactured from solid (red) beech wood.
The steel spindle is driven manually mechanically and disposes of a solid collecting funnel made of steel.
Depending on the mash (highly chopped fruit), a proper pressing process, quick and easy, can be guaranteed.
Each fruit species requires its own kind of preparation, though.

It is advised to break the grapes before use. This can be done either by a fruit mill or by hand. Pome fruit must be seeded before. However, the amount of juice yield is depending on the water content of the respective fruit and not on the operator´s capacity. Given an appropriate fruit preparation, you will find it convenient to press by only one hand.

All presses of this type do not allow to grind the fruits on the whole. You have to produce a mash (highly chopped fruit), otherwise a successful process is not possible. A wine/cider press must not be compared with a juicer. Both products operate in a completely different way. As for the grapes for example, they must not be processed in a juicer because their seeds would be destroyed and bitter substances released. It is the fruit press that assures that the seeds remain uncrushed, thus providing that juice can be processed into wine.

Not bad machine
Did what I expected it to do; I just wish they have added a few more wooden blocks, as two is not enough. They also should add informational instruction on how to do it (although semi self explanatory) and what to expect. All at all good buy. Read more

No assembly instructions and rust
Fortunately I'm not useless when it comes to DIY so I was able to assemble both the masher and the press, but had I been less competent, it would have proved very annoying. Also, whilst the bolts I used were fine, two of the pre-assembled parts of the measure worked loose. It was pure luck that I happened to look down and see something shiny in the mash and stopped to check. The washers and nuts! Now THAT would have been even more annoying. I also found that having only two blocks at the top meant that the bar and sides interfered which required pressing, unwinding, repacking, then pressing again until the bar met the side again, then unwind... So I cut 6 more blocks which allowed me to start the screw higher and press for longer. Final point, I washed the equipment down thoroughly after use, but when I came to use it again, I found that water had got into the crushers leg extensions and started rust, which then dribbled out when I was about to use it, so I strongly recommend taking them off after use (even 24 hours) even though it's nuts and bolts, which is a nuisance. I think my wife would prefer an electric press having used this one. Read more

Great for making cider
This was purchased as a xmas present. It came well packaged and promptly delivered. We haven't opened it completely as we will use it in the summer to make cider. Once we have used I will update my review Read more

Good value for small batches.
This is much cheaper as a set than if I had bought it from my usual home-brew shop. I disassembled the crusher/mill to soak and clean the hopper and the crushing mechanism in soapy water to remove any potential chemical residue from manufacturing. The mechanism is plastic and cast aluminium but did well to work its way through 18kg of apples. You may find the apples just roll around, if so reverse direction briefly or apply gentle pressure to the top of the apples but mind your hands! Be prepared to build arm muscle. I used a couple of 10mm spanners to remove the mechanism for cleaning and a 1/4" to attach the handle (disclaimer: may vary with other units). The press base came wrapped in plastic which came off the top well enough but had almost adhered to the underside and proved difficult to remove. I gave up as it didn't really matter if I left it there. The base would need to be screwed to something sturdy before use. Get a rough idea of how much juice you expect to press so you can set up the press at the right height for your receiving container. The internet told me that it's around 9kg for 3.78 litres. The wood slats need to be screwed (supplied) to the steel rings. I took the time to lightly sand the rough edges back to remove splinters which may poke your hand or catch the net (supplied). As mentioned in other reviews, additional blocks of wood will assist in getting a full press of juice. I soaked and cleaned the threaded rod which was heavily greased (don't want that in my cider) and treated it with a food-safe oil after to prevent rust. I may treat the wood slats before my next press with the oil as well. It's straightforward to assemble although as the vertical rods tighten with the pressing they become hard to unscrew. The red paint flaked off a little too easily so hopefully it's not toxic. The semicircles could be a little larger in radius as i found apple escaping up the side during the press. This is good value though and its a great way to use those garden apples. Read more

The cheapest press I could find in this size. High quality too.
The only minor gripe i have with the press is that it really needs additional blocks to help squeeze the last juice from the pulp. It's fairly easy to fabricate some of these yourself though. I would recommend screwing the press to a suitable height platform and holes are provided in the legs for this. I used a small folding aluminium step platform. If you have a lot of apples (we processed over a ton) i would consider a larger model. Read more

Quality products for pulping and pressing apples
The only downside was having to "build" the press and screw on all the wooden slats first. The pulper is of good quality though it really needs 2 people to use - one to hold it firm and steady and one to crank the handle. It pulps the apples very effectively. (It's best to clean the pulper before the fruit dries on it - we learnt that the hard way!)You need to fill the press with pulp to be able to use it so you need a fair amount of apples (depending on what size press you get). Be sure to cut out any bruises from the apples else the juice goes off very quickly. The cores do not need to be removed. Happy pressing! Read more
