Stainless Steel Vegetable Press With Painted Base (The Original Torchietto)

Designed for the pressing of olives, eggplants, fruits, tomatoes, and more. Specializing in removing liquids from solids, these units boast a solid threaded shaft & bolted heavy-duty posts to support the crank wheel. A solid steel perforated basket sits within a bowl, and a drain pipe located at the bottom. Simply put your vegetables/fruits into the perforated basket and use the solid turning handle to compress liquids out. The dried vegetables or fruit will stay within the perforated basket and all liquid will drain into the solid steel pail, and out through the drain pipe.


These machines share the same basket with our other Professional Vegetable Press lineup. For expected heavy-duty use, please select the Professional Vegetable Press for more durability.


This product will squeeze liquids from solids with a ratchet-style press system. These are mainly used for soft fruits and vegetables. Olives can be pressed but may need to be crushed before proper olive oil extraction can proceed. Please note for fruits and vegetables with extra fine seeds you will require a cheesecloth or bag to be put inside the perforated basket.

 

Please note that due to the manufacturing processes used for these presses, small inconsistencies in paint coverage and small nicks may occur.

Used For

Designed for the pressing of eggplants, fruits, tomatoes and more. To prevent pulp/seeds we suggest using a cheese cloth if seeds are smaller than 1.9mm. Torchietto is a tool commonly used for pressing eggplants (jardiniere), vegetables, nut milk, pressing cheese, and juicing fruits and vegetables. To extract the most juice from your batch of fruits/vegetables it is recommended to pulse or cut the food into small pieces.

Manufacturing Process

Scratches/small dents may appear at the bottom of the basket, due to the nature of how the basket sits in the press. There may be paint imperfections. This is not a manufacturer defect.

Use Guidelines

Turning the handle moves the pressing plate downwards. Do not apply excess pressure by forcing the pressing plate. Enough pressure is created by simply turning the handle.

Cleaning/Maintenance Guidelines

Hand wash. Clean and store in a dry place. You can apply light coating of vegetable oil on the shaft over time when needed.

Made in Italy

Yes.

Using a Torchietto
