Speidel water bladder presses are top of the line, with quality manufacturing and attractive features. Water bladder presses are easy to use, they get better juice extraction than ratchet style presses, and are more gentle on the fruit.
Uses: Water bladder presses are ideal for pressing grapes, and were originally designed for pressing apple with optimal extraction. They have also been used for herbal tinctures, de-watering marinated vegetables, pressing honeycomb, and many other applications.
Speidel water bladder presses include:
- Complete press assembly
- Inner mesh bag (to keep fruit from getting in the stainless basket and make cleanup easier)
- Plastic "spray-protection bag" to keep juice from squirting out
- Fittings to connect garden hose
- Instruction manual
- Presses ship in a corrugated box. Minor assembly (attaching legs) is required before use
Speidel was the original manufacturer of the bladder press. While similar to the Italian models in operation, Speidel offers a few quality upgrades. To obtain a better press Speidel uses a slotted screen, similar to what is offered on large commercial presses, instead of a screen with circular perforations. Speidel presses also offer superior hardware and a recessed valve assembly (to reduce accidental breakage).
Overall height is 35" and basket height is 18.5". A press cycle averages around 40 minutes.
Please Note: Due to the size of the carton this press is packaged in, it ships as an oversized item, which is why the shipping weight below is listed as 75lb. In reality the press weighs closer to 35lb.
