What’s in the box? A 4.5 litre stainless steel cross beam press, splashguard, plastic tubing for juice collection, straining bag and instructions.

  • A unique starter press, small and light enough to be used on a tabletop outdoors or on a kitchen worktop. Ideal for pressing small amounts of milled apples or crushed grapes.
  • Small and easy to store: 38cm high with a diameter of 25cm and it weighs only 4.1kg. This will fit easily into a kitchen cupboard, but the basket will still hold up to 3.4kg of fruit!
  • Durable, long lasting components including stainless steel press cage and solid brass crossbeam for additional pressing power.
  • Great for beginners and a fantastic way for those without much fruit to get one of our handmade presses on a budget.

As with our larger equipment, this press comes with a complete 2 year warranty. Should any part of it fail during normal use then we will repair or replace the unit with no questions asked.

After Care

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.

How It Works

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.

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."
