Questions we often get asked
What size is the press?
W14cm x D12cm x H7cm
Is it BPA free?
Is Tofu press dishwasher safe?
What size/brands of tofu does this fit?
Due to the nature of the bands, the Press fits various sizes and brands of tofu. As an approximate guide, it easily fits 400g of tofu. If you buy your tofu in bigger batches than this, you can cut the tofu to fit the Press and freeze the rest or leave it seeped in water to keep it fresh.
How long does it take to press tofu with the tofu press?
It depends on what you are making, the brand of tofu you are pressing and how much time you have. Here are some guidelines to give you an idea,
Short press, 15-30 mins – for sauces, smoothies, chocolate mousse or cheesecakes
Medium press, 1-2 hours – for pasties, quiches and pies
Long press, 4 hours to overnight – for stir-fries, kebabs and baked tofu
Even pressing for 10 minutes while you are preparing the other ingredients of your dish is worth it but if you remember to start pressing your tofu in the morning, you can leave it in the fridge all day, and it will be super-pressed when it comes to dinner time!
Can you use it to press the water out of silken tofu?
Yes you can. There are three hooks for the bands to be applied to, for silken tofu we recommend using the top hook and leave it to press for only about 10 minutes. That will be enough time to remove the excess water to avoid it diluting your dish.
Where do you ship to?
We can ship anywhere in the world if you are happy to contribute to the shipping costs. Just contact us directly if Amazon don’t deliver to you or you would prefer to avoid buying through them.
How long is the warranty?
We have a no-quibble returns policy as our main objective is for people to enjoy well-pressed tofu. If you are not happy with your Press, please contact us via this website or by email so we can address the issue.
How do you know which set of hooks to use?
We would recommend pulling the bands down to the lowest one you can reach. This will depend on the size of your tofu and how firm it is. When it is on its strongest setting, you can leave your tofu happily pressing in the fridge and only return to it when you want to start cooking.
My bands are broken can I replace them and how do I do it?
Yes you can. You can buy replacement bands on our website and these can be fitted into the clips like this.
