In ancient times, when there was no electricity, the juice was got manually. At first fruit and berries
were crushed and then the resulting mass was pressed using a press.
But so far, the better way to get the juice is not invented! In the food industry the juice is got in that way, only the press and the crusher are much bigger, and these units are set in motion using electric motors and hydraulic cylinders.
Our kitchens are filled with electric juicers, however the juice got using the press is healthier, because of less oxidation during the pressing. The juice has less pulp and foam, and its taste is much richer.
SIA Apple Press
This press is good as a present or a souvenir. You may use it for juice squeezing as well, e.g. making juice from berries or apples. In one cycle of pressing can be squeezed 300-400 ml of juice. The apples should be crushed before pressing, e.g. grated; the berries should be pounded with a wooden masher or minced.
This press is a good gift for the winemaker, the director of the plant for the juice production, the farmer, the gardener, the cook, or just a useful thing for the kitchen.
This model of the press was originally conceived as a souvenir. However, the working screw has a trapezoidal thread. There is a steel nut in the wooden frame. Such pair of screw and nut keeps the load well and will last a long time.
The basket, the piston, the frame and and the drain pan for juice are made of oak, and everything is fixed by the stainless steel screws. The rings of the barrel, the cover plate of the piston and the tube of the tray are made of stainless steel. Moreover, a piece of fabric for filtration is attached.
