We bought the fruit crusher and press, as we had previously tried pressing just sliced apples. The crusher is excellent and greatly improved the extraction of juice with much less effort overall. The only down-side is that it takes ages cleaning the equipment after use
Effective, easy to use fruit press.
I bought the crusher and 12 litre press, with strainer bag. Tried it out with a friend to help wash and cut up apples, and wow! - just the best tasting apple juice ever! I mounted my press on a table, still mounted to its wooden base used for shipping. With the legs being slightly short I raised it up with a wooden box to allow me to slip a plastic bucket under the lip - I had to cut a semi circle of wood away for it to fit. Using it is so easy. Delivery from Harrods was fast, unloading was a heave - it is weighty for safety purposes. Cleaning with a power washer is a doddle. Definitely a Best Buy for me!
Our horticulturist says; "Crushing and pressing fruit to extract juice is a process rich in history, with the production of apple juice and cider stretching back to Norman times. Things have moved on a bit since then, and today, pressing your own home-grown fruit could not be easier.
"These easy to use presses are a great way to start pressing your own fruit and are suitable for squeezing every last drop of juice from apples, pears and grapes and soft berries don't put up much resitance either.
" Collect up windfamlls and blemished fruit you would otherwise eat or store or make friends with neighbours who have an annual glut of fruit from their trees, get ready to apply a bit of elbow grease and the sparkling fresh juice produced is ideal for drinking, freezing, making syrups, ices and jellies or can even be turned into cider or wine.
"It's also possible to experiment with different varieties of fruit to concoct your own unique flavoured juice and don't forget the compacted fruit pulp created when pressing – known as pomace – is suitable for the compost heap.
"We've also run some tests to find out just how efficient using a crusher prior to pressing your apples can be - and the results were staggering! After cutting 30 apples into quarters and putting them straight in the press, we collected 350ml of juice, but running the same amount of quartered apples through a crusher first produced a whopping 1600ml of fresh juice - and increase of 357%!"

The Rake : News and Events
Many of you have more than one fruit tree, and unless you have extrodinary appetites, I am willing to bet that (on a good year) they produce more apples and pears than you can comfortably eat. You could, of course, store them, but how about making apple juice instead? Harrod Horticultural have a range of good-looking fruit presses that can convert your windfalls into something delicious.
