In order to make apple juice or cider, the fruit must be crushed before going in to the press, and this top-selling fruit crusher from expert manufacturers Vigo Presses does the job effortlessly.
Fits directly over the basket of Vigo's 9 and 12-litre spindle presses, the 12, 20 and 26-litre Vigo cross beam presses, or the Vigo 27.5 litre bucket.
To use, drop halved or quartered apples into the hopper, turn the wheel and out comes the fruit, crushed and ready for pressing.
The robust, cast iron hand wheel builds up terrific momentum, and the job becomes so easy it can be done in a fraction of the time of single handled models.
Made with a cast iron wheel and an oak frame.
Easy to clean, the fitted contra-rotating shafts have alternating stainless steel rollers and hooked blades for a fast, efficient job every time.
