4.0 out of 5 stars Fruity and Juicy 24 Oct 2011
By Hans
Long laboreous wotrk at first but when the first drop fall out your mind races ahead and start thinking of making cider next year, I found it easier to cut the apples small an keep on adding to it when the juices stop coming out.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mostly sturdy, works well 2 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase
First of all, as other reviewers have said, you want to get the 6 litre straining bag to go with this - it'll keep the fruit inside the press as you squeeze it and helps with the clearing up afterwards. Why they don't include one with this item I have no idea.

The metal parts of this press are good and sturdy and there was never any doubt in my mind that it could cope with the pressure I was putting on it. Be a little careful with the wooden slats - they're screwed onto the two bands and I accidentally pressed on one a bit too hard and pushed it away from the screw. I'm sure it's easily repaired and it didn't get in the way of further pressing.

The metal parts are painted a lovely, glossy red - and this WILL get chipped and scraped as you use it. Just accept it - it's inevitable.

Not shown in the photo is the fact that there are screw holes on each of the feet of the stand. Save yourselves a lot of time and screw the press onto something - we had a large board we could use, big enough that we could place it on the floor, sit on it, and then you'll find it much, much easier to tighten the press as tight as you've got strength for, which will improve the amount of juice you get out of it.

You will need additional wooden blocks, especially if the press is not full of fruit when you start. I "borrowed" some wooden cubes from Number 3 son's toy basket, which worked really well.

Instructions for assembly and use were very difficult to follow. The diagrams did not show the same shaped pieces as they actually were.

3.0 out of 5 stars Could be better 26 Sep 2013
By GKM
Agree that instructions for use are very poor - the picture on the front is just plain wrong. Also it should be sold with straining bag as it is useless without something to line the inside. We didn't realise this until we came to use it - had to improvise with tea towels which were too thick so ended up with very little juice from an awful of pears! Have now ordered the straining bag separately but too late for this year's crop. For what it's worth, I tried to put this review on the Selections site and they refused to upload it!Fruit Press (6 Litre)

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to use - brilliant 2 Sep 2013
By Plank
Verified Purchase
Fantastic! Easy to use and easy to assemble, this press was perfect for small scale home brewing of cider. I bought this along with a mesh bag from the same supplier which came in useful for disposing of the pulp afterwards, and stopping any bits of wayward pulp from squeezing its way through the wooden slats. The press seems high quality – it is all hardwood, and with some care I can foresee lasting a considerable length of time.

I would have liked an extra couple of blocks to allow more compression of the apples, but I improvised with wood lying around the garden and that seemed to be successful.

From the first drop of juice (which you won’t be able to resist tasting), it’s easy to use and I can’t wait to taste the finished cider (the apple juice was incredible.)
