Optional Apple Eater Grinder-You can buy this fruit press with the Apple Eater Fruit Grinder. The 16"OD, 20 lb flywheel makes it easy to turn and boosts juice output by up to 60%. Just drop in the fruit and turn the crank. Exclusive self-feed design literally draws in fruit. Pulped fruit drops directly into pressing tub. With the double tub press, two people (one to grind and one to press) can work at the same time. Grinder is removable to use separate from press or to use press as a wine press.

Oversize tub-Line tub (11¼"H x 13½"OD) with pressing bag (not included) and add up to a full bushel of fruit. Beveled edge staves are easy to clean. Heavy steel bands are securely attached with screws.

Built to last-It's the heaviest press on the market. Long-lasting Acme square-shoulder threads on 1½" pressing screw, reinforced crossbar and pressing disc.

Tough hardwood frame-Entire press is built of high strength rock maple instead of less expensive, more common hardwoods. Critical joints dadoed and cross bolted. Major cross members are several layers thick. Comes unfinished. Apply food grade lacquer, poxy coating, or polyurethane gel before you use your press and before storing it for long periods of time. Built in the USA with domestic and imported parts (wood and cast iron are USA made).

"This is an easy-to-use press, we use it for apples and pears. It is well built and I expect it will last a good long time. I only have a couple of minor suggestions for improvement. First, the assembly instructions are poorly illustrated and somewhat hard to follow - and I usually don't have much trouble with assembling things. Second, I bought the wheel kit which is easy to install, but the handles provided are very small and it is very difficult to move the press without it getting stuck or trying to tip over. Apparently there is a way to get it to run with a motor, but again the instructions are too vague. Also, be aware that all the wooden parts need to be varnished before assembly - it would sure be nice if the factory did that! But these are all minor things - the press is great."

Lehman's Responds:

(11/15/12) - This item is NOT recommended to be varnished and that varnish should not be used on items that come in contact with food. An alternate option to varnish is the Howard's Wood and Butcher Block Conditioner, item #7911201.
