Solid berry press with an ideal yield of juice, highest pressing capacity thanks to the metal spindle construction. Unlike some other suppliers, the press basket is manufactured of a robust (red) beech wood.
The steel spindle is permanently driven manually mechanically and disposes of a solid collecting funnel made of steel.
The maximum capacity of the wood basket is 18 liters.
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 press 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.
Apples, pears and other types of fruit have to be processed into mash before being pressed. You cannot press fruits on the whole, cut into half or quarter pieces because spindle presses are not designed for this purpose.
