Hopefully the return process will go smoothly.

Having never used one of these before, I found that I had to press the berries twice as no amount of pressure completely pressed out the fruit in a single pass.

I had to turn the handle so much to try and get juice out of the pulp, that one of the aluminum arms bent!

Severely disappointing. I was looking forward to pressing berries, grapes, and other soft fruits for wines and melomels, but this product was a huge dissapointment.

I used it one evening for three fruits: ripe apricots, strawberries, and grapes. The apricots and strawberries at the top of the press simply turned to mush and oozed out around the 1/4 inch gap between the press plate and vessel, resulting in a mess on top of the plate surrounding the shaft with very little juice collected.

Next I tried the grapes, I collected apout 3/4 cup of juice, but in the process the thin aluminum plate at the base warped so badly from the pressure that the entire press now sits at an angle about 15 degrees off of vertical. When I realized how badly the press had bent I discontinued use. When taking the grapes out, I found that some of them hadn't even split open yet, even though the "intense pressure" had caused the press to bend. I then put the grapes into a steel mixing bowl, pressed them with a potato masher and then pressed down with another steel bowl before putting them in a strainer. This produced about twice as much juice as I originally collected from pressing the grapes in this fruit press.

If it had been built with a steel base and a tight fit where the pressing plate meets the vessel holding the fruit it would likey work nicely. However, it is poorly designed and constructed. Also, after washing the press, I woke up the next morning to find the shaft and bottom of the press plate rusted. So much for the "Stainless Steel" in the title of the item. This was especially disturbing as the rusted parts come into contact with the food items you're working on.

Hopefully the return process will go smoothly.

I bought this to make fruit juices. I used it to make apple juice non the first attempt it tore a hole through two layers of my nut milk bag.

Be warned that you should use something between the pressing plate and the nut milk bag because the shaft spins freely and there's a snap-ring that holds the pressing plate and shaft together that can snag your nut milk bag and tear a nice hole in it.

I had an empty Lavazza espresso can so I cut the bottom from it with a can-opener and placed that circular piece between the pressing plate and the nut milk bag the next time I tried pressing some apple pulp and it did well to protect the bag from being damaged again.

It dented the metal disc pretty well so I imagine I'll have to find a more durable solution, perhaps a wooden disc instead.

Pros:

Works as it should
Easy to use
Easy to clean

Cons:

Can destroy your nut milk bag
not easy to store(Unless you just keep it on the counter), it's awkwardly shaped
two-handed operation; no way to secure the base to the counter

Overall Impression:

This is a much better juicer than an electric juicer like a Breville, etc. Because it's WAAAAYYY cheaper, doesn't add heat and removes much more of the liquid from the pulp. You could throw the pulp put out from a masticating. etc juicer into a nut milk bag in this thing and press pout a bunch more juice.

*******

Be sure that if you're going to use a nut milk bag with it, put something between the bag and the pressing plate that will protect the bag from damage as I mentioned above.

This works great! Even tho they do not advertise it for nut milks I used it for just that purpose. And I used a new cheap paint straining bag that is very much like my nut bag. Because the manufacturer was leery of using for nut milks I just cranked the press down slowly and let it drain for several minutes before proceeding with another turn. I had no problems with the bag tearing at all.

it works real good on soft fruits, I would not what to try it on apples. I haven't tried grapes yet. if it came with two different inside buckets for different fruits it would be a lot better. Happy with it and the price, just make sure you clean it good after every use. I put one square small piece of oak under the inside bucket so the juice would run down instead of just out the side holes.

Came exactly as described with really fast shipping. Press is perfect for what we do. We make about 20 gallons of apple juice a year and this press will make that much more efficient. I have only made one small batch with it, but it worked perfect on that. You do have to crush your apples, but heck, you have to do that with any press I've ever used to include the ones for several hundred dollars.

As noted by others, there are some limitations to this device. 1. Limited capacity, 2. no way to mount the device to a table. That being said, it will efficiently press small quantities of berries which in my case was red currants. Having never used one of these before, I found that I had to press the berries twice as no amount of pressure completely pressed out the fruit in a single pass. This may be normal for all presses, I don't know. TIP! I did discover that pre-mashing the currants helped a great deal in rendering out the juice. Cleaning the device was quiet easy. I have no experience using the device to press anything other than currants. Suspect it would be fine for other soft fruit (i.e. grapes). Not sure how it would work for anything else. Just keep in mind that the press container only holds about 2 cups of fruit, and chances are you will need to double press if you fill it to the top.
