4.5 Litre Worktop Fruit Press - 91322

A unique starter press, small and light enough to be used on a table top outdoors or on a worktop. Ideal for pressing small amounts of milled apples or crushed grapes.

  • WHAT YOU GET: An authentic Vigo Presses stainless steel worktop press. It has a 4.5 litre capacity and can hold up to 3.4kg of crushed fruit. Also included are a splashguard, plastic tubing for juice to flow through into a collection container, free straining bag and a 2 year warranty to protect against any faulty workmanship.

  • IDEAL FOR BEGINNERS – Or those without much fruit to press. With a manageable 4.5 litre capacity, this press is perfect for those just starting out or who don’t have a lot of fruit to process. The unit is small and easy to store; at 38cm in height, with an overall diameter of 25cm and weighing only 4.1kg it will easily fit into a kitchen cupboard when not in use! Don’t think though that just because it’s small it can’t handle plenty of work! You can expect up to 1.7 litres (3 pints) of juice per pressing, depending on how ripe your fruit is of course.

  • MAKE YOUR OWN JUICE AND CIDER at home with the Vigo Presses tabletop apple press. Just add crushed fruit and in no time at all you’ll see delicious fresh juice emerging from the press cage. Use the handy splashguard included to minimize mess, the straining bag to get clearer, smoother juice and the tubing to ensure every drop of juice is collected! Please do note that you’ll need to crush your fruit into a grated, pulped consistency before pressing. We have crushers specifically for this or you can do it manually with some elbow grease!

  • STAINLESS STEEL CONSTRUCTION – Durable and long lasting, the main components of the press are stainless steel. This makes them immune to rust and food safe. There’s also a brass cross beam allowing for extra pressing power. The entire unit is polished, smooth and free of any sharp edges for added safety and ease of use.

  • We’re so confident in the quality of our equipment that we offer a comprehensive 2 year warranty against faulty workmanship with every Vigo Presses product sold. There are many of the earliest Vigo presses (sold in the 1980’s!) that are still seeing good service today, so we’re sure you won’t need it, but should anything happen for any reason just let us know and we will repair or replace your goods, no questions asked.

Place a splashguard around the outside of the press, loosen the screw a few turns by twisting the brass cross beam and lift the beam to remove the screw and pressing plate from the retaining side supports. Place a straining bag (supplied) inside the press and fill the press cage with crushed fruit. Twist the bag closed and place the pressing plate on top. Replace the cross beam and threaded rod, ensuring that the rod end locates in the piston centre and that the side supports are engaged in the slots in the cross beam. Wind the screw down slowly and juice will flow through the perforated cage into the juice collection tray and out through the plastic tube.

After pressing unwind the screw enough to remove it and the beam from the press, empty the bag and repeat the process as often as required. Wash thoroughly after use, lightly lubricate the thread with vegetable oil and store in a dry place. The thread does not need to be removed from the beam.

Mr Mardell's feedback, July: "Having grown soft fruit in my garden and made jam from it for some fifty years, this year my wife said no more pips, please. The Vigo 4.5 litre press arrived yesterday, I picked the Tayberries and followed the [pressing] instructions. The Tayberry and rhubarb jam was made this morning, and I am here to tell you that this has to be the best jam in the world. So this is to thank you for a superb product, at a value-for-money price, received in perfect order, right on time, packaged with great care (credit to the despatch manager) easy to use, highly effective, and contributing largely to a result which meets with the approval of the wife - a thing never easy of achievement. An excellent investment."
