Gets easier to use once it's broken in Review by Jason

Before getting it I searched the internet and settled on this model. There is a good video showing how to properly set it up and use it. Its easier to use if bolted down and it's been used a few times.

Bolt it down Review by Hank

Works great. Bolting it down makes it easier to use, and so will a few uses to break it in and wear down the pins.

One of our club members works at a vinyard and showed us how to work it. It's not hard at all, and can handle all we can throw at it. Its a great long term investment for us, and it going to last.

My uncle got it for me and helped me set it up and showed me how to work it. He's a very experienced wine maker. It does a great job and can handle a lot of volume. It will outlast me too.

Very good once you master it Review by Dan

It becomes easier to use once you get the pins worn down a little. I bolted it down and it's easier to use this way. Have someone show you hot to use it correctly and it will serve you well.

It's worth it Review by Corwin

I visited a long time amateur wine maker and he showed me all his equipment. When he showed me this press I was intrigued and asked for a demo. We made a batch together later on and based on that experience i bought one. Its well made, can be easily assembled, and does a quick job on any soft fruit. I had no problems using it after being shown how.

Great press, very solid, but minor cosmetic issues Review by Jason

Wine press looks and operates great. My parents live in Sonoma and this is an anniversary gift for them so that they can make wine from their small private vineyard. It operates great once its been slightly lubricated. The only issue is that the shipping company did not take the best care of it. When we got it the box had been punctured in several areas and the long threaded pipe was missing a bit of paint. I still would have purchased it again though. Like they say int he description, apply some oil to protect from rust and its not a big deal.

Worth it, but be prepared for the investment Review by Orson

Its not a toy, it's somewhat complex, and needs to be set up and maintained. It takes a little while to figure out how to use it, but when you do, it's awesome. There is a good you tube video I saw on how to use it. Bolt it down, and it will be easier to use.

Great Press after you learn to use it Review by Chase

Product Rating:

I was shown how to use it by a fellow vintner, so I never had a problem. But I can see how it would be difficult to know how to use it properly without help. Its simple to use and a big time saver. A very pick up for the long term.

Good after you use it a few times. Review by Daniel

My friend let me use his press. It is a good press for the price. It works fine for what ever you use it for.
