12 Litre Press


If you’re looking for a little upgrade from the spindle presses, this is the next best thing and a best selling product, very popular with families, Apple Days and community groups! It’s very convenient with the crossbeam making all the difference, swinging away from the press so that you can actually crush the fruit straight into the basket and empty your used pulp easily. For maximum efficiency, you can put the classic crusher A on top, a with the help of a friend, you could easily produce up to 13.5 litres an hour. This is the kind of thing that should last a lifetime as it is made with only high quality materials: cast iron for the base plate, legs, spindle nut and crossbeam; beautiful sustainable beech for the basket and stainless steel for the handle. You’ll want to use this with a straining bag for best results.
