The Fun of Making Cider: Genuine Jaffrey Fruit / Cider / Wine Press  Buying Guide

You'll be surprised how quickly and easily the stainless-steel grinder in the Jaffrey Cider and Wine press reduces a bushel of apples to a juice-filled pulp. Then, once the pressing tub is loaded, you turn the pressing screw and out comes sparking fresh cider. Everyone in your house will want a turn with this powerful, easy-to-use tool.

How long will the press last?

Genuine Jaffrey Presses have been built in Kansas since 1983 with satisfied customers across the USA. Each press is solidly crafted with a maple frame and cast iron grinder for years of enjoyment. And, your purchase is covered by a one-year limited warranty and money back guarantee.

The Jaffrey press isn't just for apple cider. Recipes for all kinds of fresh fruit juice, apple butter and boiled cider jelly are included with your press. It also quickly transforms all kinds of fruit to juice for the fermenting process for wine or hard cider.

What features does it come with?

  • Heavy duty 1" diam. pressing screw with Acme thread exerts a powerhouse of pressure with a minimum effort. Four threads per inch permit fast travel.
  • Grinder bolts to press frame. A hardwood drum studded with eight rows of stainless steel teeth is mounted on a steel crankshaft inside the cast iron casing.(Grinder can be easily removed from press and mounted on a sawhorse or other support, allowing one person to grind fruit, another to press juices.)
  • Heavy cast-iron flywheel with hardwood handle rotates drum mounted on steel shaft -- all perfectly balanced for smooth, easy grinding.
  • Large steel-banded pressing tub will hold up to one bushel of pulp inside the fitted, fine-mesh pressing bag. It will keep the skins, stems and pulp inside the bag letting only the juice flow through. You must order them extra as they are not included with the press
  • Entire press frame and tub are now SOLID MAPLE for super strength. You must apply a final finish of our one part epoxy coating or varnish, lacquer or mineral oil.
  • Uprights of sturdy maple and the extra wide-stance legs provide total stability under grinding and pressing action.
  • Sliding collecting tray with bottom juice drain.

1. After lining tub with pressing bag (not included), load grinder hopper with fruit. 2. Turn flywheel as fast as you can. You can install your own motor if you like. Pulp falls into tub. 3. When tub is full, fold ends of pressing bag over pulp, add platen and lower the pressing screw. 4. Tighten screw, pause a few moments - tighten again. Juice will start flowing into collection tray. Excessive pressure does little good and may harm your press. 5. Now, try a taste of your fresh, sweet cider - incredibly delicious
