All presses come with 2 baskets, 2 basket pallets, lid, lid removal tool, 2 filter bags, and are mounted on wheels at no extra cost, and come complete with instructions. Weight will vary on all presses offered.

Please Note: Gallons referred to are approximations only. Many variables must be considered in apples used, such as variety, stage of ripeness, etc. Unripe apples are dry, while over-ripe apples are mushy, and either condition will cause greatly reduced juice quantity. Cooking apples are quite dry. The early summer apples do not make as good a juice. The taste is often weak or too tart to be enjoyed. Rely on Fall and Winter apples for the best juice. A mix of 3 or more varieties gives the best flavor. Pears can be added if desired, but since they are so sweet, 20 per cent is usually enough.

Grapes and soft fruits may be pressed as well. With grapes, milk them off of the stems into the shredder device until you have filled the basket below. Solid type table grapes can be pressed rapidly. Slip skin varieties such as Concord or Niagra require pressing in several stages over an hour or so. With grapes or soft fruit use a filter bag.

DO NOT under any circumstances attempt to process stone fruits through the shredder. This will damage the knives the same as if you threw in a handful of rocks.

Consult with your county agent or a reputable wine supply store for preservation or fermentation instructions.



Why buy a Correll press? Because they are the best - pure and simple.
