Description

About this Product: (PR110) The Table-Top Fruit Press is ideal for someone who makes 5, 10 or 15 gallons of wine at a time. The basket holds about 20 pounds of fruit, and you get about a gallon of juice with each pressing. It’s a great screw-type press for the country winemaker who has a variety of different wines to brew throughout the year. This Table-Top Fruit Press can press blackberries, strawberries, grapes and even larger fruit like apples and pears. This press is strong enough to press the pulp all the way down to barely damp.

This Table-Top Fruit Press could not be easier to use. Just load the basket with crushed fruit, sit the pressing plate on top of the fruit and screw down the rod to apply pressure. That’s it! The basket sits in a reservoir that collects the juice and channels it into whatever container you like.

The Table-Top Fruit Press was designed with long-term use in mind. It is made of select hardwoods and the cross member is made of rugged cast-iron, and the pressing screw is stainless steel. This Table Top Fruit Press also has handle bar grips for easy use and turning.

Details: The overall dimensions are 12-1/2” wide by 12-1/2” deep and 22” high when the screw is all the way down. The basket dimensions are 9” in diameter by 11” tall. Maximum pulp capacity is approximately 20 lbs. and each pressing yields roughly a gallon of juice, depending on the fruit being pressed.


Price includes FREE Shipping to the 48 states and is available year round. Shipped immediately from our warehouse.

 

FAQ
Q Al (Moundsville, WV)
Can the table top fruit press (PR110) be used for pressing apples?
A CustomerService@ECKraus.com
Yes, it can be used on any type of fruit, including apples. All fruit must be crushed first before they are pressed.

Q Alex (Denver, CO)
Does the press have any kind of coating on the wood or is there something I should be putting on it?
A CustomerService@ECKraus.com
The wood on the Table-Top Fruit Press is unfinished. This is the best way to keep it. After using this wine press just clean it with a blast from a water hose. Allow the press to air-dry and then store it out of direct sunlight. Before using the next time, lightly spray the wine press with a solution of Sodium Metabisulfite and water.

Q Jill (Laughlin, NV)
I was looking at this wine making fruit press on your sight, but it doesn`t mention from where the juice comes out. Does it have a pipe on the bottom or do you have to dump it out to a different sifter and sift it yourself? And if it comes out of the bottom, how is a cup or barrel supposed to receive the juice?
A CustomerService@ECKraus.com
The juice will come out of the small ridge in the base of the press. Refer to the picture. You need to have something under the press to catch the free flowing juice, such as a food grade bucket or your primary fermenter.

Q Derrick (Norwich, KS)
Where is this wine press made?
A CustomerService@ECKraus.com
The Table Top Fruit Press is made in the country of Colombia, South America.

Q Christian (New York,NY)
Does the basket need to be completely full of fruit in order for the press to work properly?
A CustomerService@ECKraus.com
The Table Top Fruit Press needs to be at least half-full of fruit to work properly. However, it works best when the basket is completely full.

"Absolute garbage" Review by pidzik (Posted on 10/24/14)

So I gave this piece of equipment more than a fair go. A bit of background: My fiance bought 180 lbs of delicious concord grapes from a local store on sale. Luckily, this fruit press came in from the mail the same day to ease the burden of crushing all those grapes! Well, I was wrong. The first batch we ran through wasn't crushed, so the lid tilted and was tough to get back into place. Ok, lesson learned, we'd crush the grapes and fill it only half way. Well, the same issue happened! The lid went crooked again! To the point where I had to disassemble the entire piece before even a cup of juice was pressed! I thought maybe it's the lid, so I machined a new lid from a 30lb piece of stainless steel (I'm an engineer by trade) with an exact replica divot for the crank. Put the plate on the grapes and juice started pouring immediately, which was awesome! Then I started the pressing process and again, the gosh darn lid went cockeyed! I unscrewed it a bit and placed the wooden lid atop the stainless lid, tried it again, and the same issue! The lid went crooked and got stuck before even getting more than half way down!! I finally just gave up. I refuse to use this piece of equipment, and advise anyone looking to buy it to save a bit extra and buy a larger press that's more stable. I just can't express enough disdain and disappointment for this piece of overpriced junk.

"Good, and almost great" Review by RichboroWineRookie (Posted on 10/8/12)

As mentioned in previous reviews, the juice ran underneath the press, so we scrambled to tilt it with quarters, wood shims, then a plastic bucket lid. The plate also tilted and didn't completely crush all the grapes, so next batch, we will not fill the bag so much. Also, the rubber grips kept flying off when spinning it back up. Aside from those frustrations, the kids and I enjoyed the process and were amused when thin streams of juice squirted out of the bag. We'll also try the suggestions in the above reviews. Thanks!

"Wine press" Review by Press Man (Posted on 9/23/12)

The wine press presses just fine, but it would be nice if it had some sort of a spout that slants down to keep the juice from running back under the press.

"A perfect size !" Review by Den (Posted on 9/14/12)

I use the nylon bags and the press works great. I'm glad others mentioned that. We do small batches so this works fine.
I pull my table aprt and set a cake pan under the press so it doesn't leak. Then I side the table back some and it fits in nicely.
I may make a stand later but for now this is fine.

"I love my press" Review by neeceon (Posted on 11/27/11)

I make ten gallons of grape wine at a time. I find this press very helpful. I just love it. I use a straining bag with mine. Works great.

"About What I expected" Review by WinoMan (Posted on 9/17/11)

Pressing plate doesn't always stay horizontal but is easily remedied by loosing and restarting. Use a nylon bag to put pulp in will make life easier. Make sure you are on a level surface to allow for juices to flow the correct direction. Great for doing small batches. I wouldn't recommend this if you are making large batches.
