The basket is made from perforated stainless steel. The wooden press plate is pushed down via a threaded shaft with t-handle. The pressing mechanism is hinged and can be tilted out of the way when done, allowing for easy removal of fruit solids. Basket volume is approximately 2.5 gallons. Excellent for soft fruits such as grapes, peaches or berries. Hard fruit such as apples or pears MUST be put through a grinder/crusher before pressing.
