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 line up.
For expected heavy duty use, please select the Professional Vegetable Press for more durability.
