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.

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?
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?
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 Christian (New York,NY)
Does the basket need to be completely full of fruit in order for the press to work properly?
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.
