Product Description

The Welles Juice Press (also known as the Peoples Juice Press) extracts juice containing high levels of nutrients from fruit and vegetables by pressing (squeezing) pulp. The nutrients and juice are forced out of the pulp fibers when pressed using 2 tons of pressure. The pressure exerted by this pressing method is thought to release extra nutrients and enzymes that would otherwise 'adhere' to the pulp and left behind by juicing machines. The Welles is made from white powder-coated steel and has a stainless steel splash plate. The drip tray is made of a specialized non-leaching plastic designed for use with foods. This is a manual juice press that works by placing the fruit and vegetable pulp from a juice extracting machine, such as Samson 6-1 or Green Power KPE, juicers. You can use left over pulp for the juicing process or just us the juicer to make pulp with the appropriate attachment. The pulp is placed into a pressing cloth, 2 are supplied with the Welles Press, the cloth is folded and placed on the drip tray. The tray is raised using the jack handle, pressing the clothe between the juicing plate and the drip tray.. When the pressing cloth containing the pulp is squeezed between the tray and the pressing plate the juice and nutrients are extracted from the pulp and flow off the drip tray into a bowl or other catcher (not included). You can also use the Welles Press with whole produce such as grapes by placing them directly into the pressing cloth. Cleaning the Welles - Peoples Juice Press is simple, just slide the tray out along with the press plate and rinse it in warm water. Rinse the pressing cloth and store it in the freezer to keep it sterile.... Pressing Reclaims Lost Nutrients from Vegetable Pulp - The pulp from organic vegetables is too valuable to be discarded. Pressing actually releases vitamins, minerals and enzymes that literally "bind" to the pulp. The hydraulic press separates the bio-available nutrients that act as powerful hea

I had not followed directions.

As it is, I'm very careful when pushing down the pulp tray to lower it because it's made of plastic and I don't want to crack/break it due to using too much force.

If you are serious and plan to juice for years to come and want those last few drops, spend the money to buy something better and don't waste it on this thing.

This is the most affordable press I could find online (a very similar one costs over $2K and is apparently heavily marketed to cancer patients). It works like a car jack, you pump a lever that raises a platform fitted with a juice catcher until it presses against a fixed plate. One reviewer gave it a 1 star (worst) review, and the first time I tried the press, I wholeheartedly agreed! BUT... I found a solution. If you buy one, read this BEFORE YOU EVER USE YOUR PRESS!
The big problem is that there is no easy way to get the platform back down after you've jacked it up and pressed out the juice. Instructions say, go ahead, don't hesitate to use force to push it down. Great. Thanks. There is absolutely nothing to grab hold of! Only fingernails fit in the narrow space between the juice catcher and the top plate, the juice catcher is plastic (so you do hesitate to apply force), and the pressed cloth with the residue are in the way of anything else you might want to try to wedge in. You get two cloths with the press, so you don't want to damage one of them the very first time you use it. My fingernails took a beating that night. One hundredth of a millimeter at a time, I nudged the platform down. It felt like it wasn't going down at all. IT TOOK ME OVER AN HOUR to get the contraption far down enough to be able to remove the bag and residue. Then I wedged a screwdriver wrapped in a kitchen glove into the space. After that it came down pretty fast. Oh, boy was I sorry I'd bought that thing! Only buyer pride (and anger) kept me going. I went to bed two hours after everyone - had to finish cleaning up. During the night, I came up with a solution.

SOLUTION: Cut a piece of cotton cloth (an old pillowcase is just right) into a 20 inch square. Fold it in three.

$400 is a pretty high price to pay for frustration. First to be fair, I'll say it does work. You'll be able to squeeze those last few drops of juice out. Now for the down side. See the handle on the top? That's not for portability, that's so you can hold on to it as you pump the lever w/ you other hand because this thing will tip for sure if you don't. Like another reviewer stated, once you release the knob to allow the deck to drop... it doesn't. You have to force it down. There is nothing pleasurable about using this thing. So if you like to be annoyed and add a little more teeth gritting frustration to your day then buy it. If you are serious and plan to juice for years to come and want those last few drops, spend the money to buy something better and don't waste it on this thing. I got rid of mine shortly after I bought it so I wouldn't have to look at it and cringe at my mistake anymore.

The Welles' Peoples Press, if used in conjunction with a juicer/grinder (i.e. a Champion juicer), is a great alternative to the Norwalk juicer. Norwalk juicers cost $2500 new, and this press with a Champion costs under $700. The juice is perfect - pulp free, great color, no oxidation, with all the nutrients and enzymes in tact. Using a press provides the highest amount of juice extraction possible, and it leaves the pulp bone dry and with a slight loss of pigmentation.

If you want the best juice possible, or are on the Gerson therapy, and cannot afford the high price of a Norwalk, this is the next best thing.

The only downside to this is that a reasonable amount of strength is required to press the juice. If you have a disease or condition that prevents you from any form of physical excursion, the Peoples Press may not be a good fit for you.

Clean up simple, quick, and easy. I love this press and use it everyday.

This is a godsend for people who cant afford a Norwalk Press. Just buy a champion, (used, for about a hundred bucks on craigslist)put in the blank screen and triturate your veggies like phase one of the Norwalk, and then run it through this. I have both systems, Norwalk and now, this, and this compares favorable. It is a little more time consuming as the Champion does not have quite the power and tube size of the norwalk, but hey, you are saving about 2000 bucks. The quality and taste are identical to that of Norwalk pressed juice, so there you have it.

I am VERY glad I read the other customer reviews before using this press for the first time.
PROS:
1) Delivery was quick (arrived 4 days after ordering).
2) I am getting 50% more juice from the press than my old centrifugal juicer. (I juiced 8 medium carrots and got 2 cups of juice from the old one - put the pulp into the welles press and extracted 1 additional cup of juice).
3) No pulp in the juice
4) MUCH cheaper than the Norwalk juicer, which I was considering
5) Easier to clean than my old juicer (MUCH easier) - simply rinse the cloth out and wipe down any splatter - took under a minute to clean up. My old juicer has so many parts it takes nearly 10 minutes to clean up.
6) Manual operation - I know some prefer an automatic press, but I really like the manual operation and being able to leave it in the pressed position for a couple of minutes as more juice continues to be squeezed out of it.

CONS: (with solutions)
1) As others have noted (and a note in the box also warns) it can be hard to lower the tray. Since the press came with 2 cloths I draped one over the press plate (under the juice tray) as one reviewer recommended (though they used a pillow case - the included cloth is nylon and very strong) and it was very simple to lower the tray.
2) Other reviewers noted that the cloths fray badly - they are nylon and so I simply sealed the edges with a lighter (just like keeping the end of nylon rope from fraying) took 60 seconds to do the entire cloth and should prevent fraying. Yes, the company could have stitched up the sides, but that would leave seams for pulp to get trapped in - unstitched these are very easy to clean.
3) Splatter as juice is draining into container.
