Simple Tofu Press - The Simple Way to Remove Water From Tofu
The Simple Tofu Press simply squeezes the water from the tofu by pressing down the top plate with the adjustable knobs. Adjusting the knobs every few minutes will remove the water from a tofu block in 10-15 minutes.
We have 2 models, one with 2 springs and one with 4 springs. This Simple Tofu Press works perfectly with two springs, you simply turn down the knobs every few minutes until the tofu is pressed dry to your needs.
Please see our other listing for our top of the line "Super Tofu Press" which is more automatic and does not require continuous adjustment of the knobs.
Quality Construction: The two custom molded plastic plates are USDA food grade, non-absorbent, non-porous polyethylene material.
Our plastic plates are molded with special foot pads so it does not wobble or scratch any surface with the bolt heads.
All nuts, bolts and washers are food grade stainless steel.
For use with Firm and Extra Firm Tofu. Rinse with soap and water or top rack Dishwasher safe.
The Simple Tofu Press is made in the USA and guaranteed by Custom Services

My first time using it, I wanted to make a tofu wrap with an Asian salad mix. While I was pressing the tofu, I wasn't sure that it was going to make much of a difference. I drained it in the sink so I didn't see how much was drained. I pressed it for maybe 15 minutes, tightening the press about 3 times.
When I took the tofu out of the press, it felt more compact and when cutting it into slices and it didn't break or crumble like unpressed tofu did. It was firm and sliced into nice pieces.
Normally I would just slice the tofu and cook it for 30+ minutes to get all the moisture out, but it was difficult to get the center cooked to my preference. The pressed tofu cooked quickly and had a wonderful texture, a perfect replacement for chicken in my wrap. The leftovers were still tasty and a firm texture the next day.
The wing nuts make it easy to loosen the press. The springs help pop the top board up, making it easy to get the tofu out and clean it.
Initially, I wasn't sure this press was going to make a difference but it's going to get used every time I cook tofu. You just can't get that solid texture without getting the excess moisture out.
First, the pressing is more even. Second, you can stand this thing on end in the sink while it's working, so there's less mess. Third, I have much more control over how much water is pressed out. Just tighten the thumb screws, wait a while, and then tighten some more. I don't think I've ever had tofu pressed this completely before. I just really like this thing.
This press is perfect! It quickly presses the water out, and you can even tip it sideways to rapidly drain the water out through the sides, if you are pressing the entire block at once. I tried it with the tofu cubed first, and it was clumsier but worked. I think I'll press first, and cut later in the future.
I couldn't be happier.
I got this one as opposed to the "xpress", because there were a few bad reviews on that one in regards to the relatively thin plastic cracking and the springs malfunctioning. The simplicity of this one makes it very unlikely (if not impossible) that it will ever stop working or break. In its simplicity lies its robustness. I do not like ordering things and wondering if/when it's going to break, do I need to save the packaging, are the returns easy, etc.
The only downside however, is that you will have to manually tighten it every so often. I don't consider this to be that hard however. When I'm making a recipe with pressed tofu, I'll throw it in the press first thing, then start rinsing vegetables (tighten it), chop some vegetables (tighten it again), saute some vegetables (tighten it again), and you get the picture. By the time I get to the tofu step, it's sufficiently pressed. I like that because it's held so tightly, I can leave it upright in a mixing bowl, which makes tossing the water a little easier. In the past with the towels/cookbook/plate setup, I had to very carefully transport the plate to the sink so as to not spill the tofu water on the floor as I walked.
Overall, would definitely recommend. Worth the money. Wish I had bought it sooner.
