Product Description

I now sell a Piteba nutcracker as well as olive oil attachments and spare parts, check amazon for other listings. The Piteba Oil Expeller is made in Holland. It is a low cost way to make your own high quality raw nut and seed oil at home. If you have a nut tree in your yard you can make your own oil for free. There are many videos showing its use on the internet, just search for Piteba. Suitable for almost all oil containing seeds with at least 25% oil in the seed. Will not work for Olives, Olive pits, grape seeds, or any stone fruit. The press does not come with the top hopper or a container to catch the oil. It comes with everything else pictured. The hopper is made by cutting the top off a plastic pop or water bottle. The piteba oil press is around $150.00 US dollars plus foreign transaction fees and customs fees if purchased from Holland. Buying from us will save you at least $10.00 to $15.00 and you will get your product much faster.

I got a Piteba oil press a little over a year ago. I have this thing about knowing how and having the tools to "do it myself" and I always wanted to be able to press my own vegetable oil.

The Piteba is the only small hand-cranked oil press that I found, but it works great. It does have a learning curve, and getting to know individual seeds and whatnot. I had great success with using it with sunflower and pumpkin seeds, and I am experimenting now with growing my own sunflowers and hull-less pumpkins to press the seeds. The ultimate in sustainability! I didn't have so much luck with flax seed, I found that it all compacted towards the end but then I emailed the manufacturer and he got back quickly telling me to just add a little water because flax can be tricky. I haven't had a chance to try it yet but he responded so quickly and that was really nice.

I actually did a full-on review with photos at my blog here - [...]

So really to summarize, the Piteba is a really great tool for anyone who would like to just be a little more independent and produce their own. It does take hard work to use but it also really makes you appreciate the fact you can just go out and buy vegetable oil. The only thing I didn't like about it is that it took a few times to get all the machining dust off the interior, but I figured that was normal.

The Piteba Expeller allowed us to extract kukui nut oil quite successfully -- it took a little experimentation to figure out the best method but my husband and I were glad to find an expeller at a fairly reasonable price.

Great product, excellent customer service who answered all my questions, gave great recommendations, sent me additional parts for free. I would highly recommend this product and this seller.
We purchased this machine for a science fair project to demonstrate extracting healthy oils from fresh nuts.
The product is easy to assemble, setup and use and is very durable. We made fresh walnut, sesame, and macadamia oils. The kids loved using the machine to expel the oils and then dipping fresh bread into the fresh oil to eat immediately. We were one of the most popular booths at the science fair!
We mounted the Piteba to a board about 18 inches long and 2 inches thick. Then, we used standard screw clamps to hold the Piteba steady on the table when it is being cranked. For the collector, we used a plastic gatorade bottle, 20 ounce I think, that fit snuggly over the top opening.
All in all, a great product, great customer service, and a good time!

Piece of cake on the second attempt.

Failed miserably on the first attempt because the commercially dried, then toasted, seeds were way too dry. I added 45ml of water to the half kilo bag of seeds(double what the instructions say)and left them in the window for two days...stirred them a couple times a day. This morning I cranked it up again and went through the bag (half a kilo) in about ten minutes....crank turns easy. Initially a few seeds and a couple of drops of oil came out the front expeller holes then it started to flow out of the oil slot. This is great. Going to do more next week.

When the first attempt failed I read through the instructions and took a look at the Piteba site. I also watched a couple of the Youtube videos. It was obvious that the crank should not have been as hard to turn as it was on the first try. The results fit the seeds way to dry description.

We used Perila Seeds (Korean mint) which are about the size and oil content of sesame seeds. They worked fine. It just takes a little reading and experimenting to get the moisture content right. That seems to be the key to success.

And this thing is built like a tank. If you break it you've done something wrong.

The Piteba is a great product for extracting oil, you need to be patient in using it.
First you need to condition your seeds by adding small volume of water. For sesame seeds you can add 60ml of water for every 1000g of seed, you have to let the seeds rest for 12hours.
The extraction is easy but you have to do the extraction process twice to get a good result of high oil yeild.
Secondly, my observation is that that the oil has a slight discoloration due to the shaft this can be taken care of by allowing the oil to settle for 24hours then you can gently sieve off the clear oil.
Thirdly, the cap is usually blocked by the extracted cake, so there is need to clean by dismantling the equipment and this also takes time.
The residue has only small amount of oil left. Overal the equipment works well.
My experience with the seller is awesome and they are very prompt in responding to enquiries about their product the PITEBA.
Thank you for making my shopping experience great.

The Piteba Oil Press worked well when we used it to make walnut oil. The manual available from the Piteba website is worth reading. However, setting up the machine requires bolting it to a solid base. You need to make your own funnel for the product intake and you need to buy lamp oil to heat the press to operating temperature. After use you need to dismantle it promptly otherwise hardenned material becomes almost impossible to remove. Overall a good machine but some skills required for operation.
