We would recommend adding a straining bag (not included) to gather unwanted debris and residue when pressing - available here.

Please note that apples must be crushed into a pomace before pressing, and we recommend checking out our 'How To Crush Apples' and 'Crushers and Mills' sections for further information. 

Plus, with a comprehensive 2-year warranty, you can trust in the quality of our product. Order your 12 litre cross beam fruit press today and start making delicious homemade juices and ciders.

Swing the cross beam off the press. Line the press cage with a straining bag (optional; available separately) overlapping the side of the press.  If using Crusher A or the Economy Crusher (available separately) to mill the apples, locate the crusher on top, mill the apples directly into the press until it is brimful, and remove the crusher.  If using the Pulpmaster to mill your apples, swing the cross beam off the press and fill the press cage with crushed fruit.  

Fold the edges of the press bag to cover the pomace making a parcel.  Swing the pressure plate over the press cage and crushed fruit and use the butterfly nut to secure in place.  Turn the pressing bar, which will steadily lower the pressure plate.  The juice will soon flow down through the press staves into the plate gully, ready for collection.   Collect the juice in a food-grade bucket, ready for freezing, pasteurisation or irresistible instant drinking.
