Great kitchen addition for Tofu Eaters
Much better than piling dishes onto my tofu to press it.

I have been using it for 6 months, and find myself eating more tofu now than ever.

It really works to improve the texture

No More Wasted Paper Towels!!!
Finally, no more wasted paper towels, and topsy-turvy stacked cans! Put it in the fridge before work, and it is ready to go when you get home. Yes, it requires a little planning ahead, but so much less waste and mess

My new favorite kitchen gadget!
If you are a tofu lover, this is a must have that will make cooking with tofu so much easier. Received this as a gift, and I was initially skeptical, but it is so much better than wasting a roll of paper towels trying to soak up all the water. Works easily in a short period of time, although pressing for more than a few hours really makes the tofu super dense and perfect for stir frying and adding to your favorite recipes. I love it, use it frequently and recommend it to anyone who cooks with tofu more than a few times a week. Pricey, but well worth it.

Way more useful than I expected!
My husband and I like roasted tofu and the key to getting it super roasty is getting the tofu as dry as you possibly can. I pondered tofu presses for a while but really didn't think they would work. I finally decided to try this one and I'm so glad I did! It's so easy to use and it really does press out a lot of water without having to deal with a ton of wet paper towels. We also figured out the absolute best method for roasting is to cut the tofu into slices, and put in a ziploc and freeze. When you're ready to use, put it in the fridge to thaw, then put it in the press. But even if you don't do the whole freezing thing, this press does an excellent job with basically no effort on your part. I love this thing!

I'm a believer
It's a rare thing for me to write a review about anything. I just don't do it. But in this particular case, I am compelled to say the TofuXpress is everything it was purported to be, and more. I have always been envious of those people who are veritable tofu artists in the kitchen. I love tofu, and there are so many excellent recipes online. But the painful process of putting tofu between paper towels, and then putting stacks of encyclopedias on top to press out the water, was just so frustrating and inadequate.

The TofuXpress is one of the most brilliantly simple and solidly constructed devices I've ever had the pleasure of using. Here I am, nearly 58 years old, and I eat tofu almost every day. I cannot think of very many products that I would endorse as heartily as I would the TofuXpress. It is worth 10 times what I paid for it.

Years of Dependable Service
My boyfriend bought me one of these 6 years ago, and I've been using it at least a couple of times a week since then. The plastic is hard and sturdy and the spring is heavy duty. I would probably never eat tofu if I had to press it the old-fashioned way just because of what a pain it is. This thing is the real deal!

best investment in tofu
This product is the best one-use tool in my kitchen. The old way of pressing did practically nothing, while being super-inconvenient. This is so simple--put the tofu in, put it back in the refrigerator until you're ready to make dinner--could be earlier in the afternoon, or the night before, or even a couple days before. Makes the tofu behave much much better, especially if frying.

How did I live without this?
No more wasted paper towel/mess! Even though I had started purchasing extra firm tofu it never came out quite the same as when I ate it out at salad bars/restaurants. I don't have room for alot of gadgets in my kitchen - but the tofu press is an essential. Only didnt give 5 stars because it is pricey and because I feel I'll need to handle it carefully so as not to break it (the tabs are a little fidgety)

Worth it
I know it's pricey but not running thru miles of paper towels is worth it. And it gets the water out so much better and faster! If you are a regular tofu eater, highly recommend. Keep in mind, I have not had it for a great length of time, so I cannot attest to how long the spring mechanism lasts but it looks sturdy. So far, very happy.

I am enjoying using the Tofu Xpress! I broke down and bought it after a disaster in the kitchen with the apple cider vinegar bottle falling on the floor while trying to press tofu. Greatest invention EVER!!!!!

It gets old stacking a plate to press the tofu, other reviews make this sound perfect for frequent tofu consumers
Jeff B on Nov 20, 2016
Because of your great guarantee that the producer of this product does not offer!
Eileen R on Nov 17, 2016
Like the other reviewers, I am tired of wasting paper towels and stacking pizza stones, pots, pans, heavy jars/cans, small children, the dog, my car and anything else I can find on top of the stack to press my tofu.
Licia P on Nov 8, 2016
Bought this one for my daughter. I bought one a couple of weeks ago and love it. No more heavy pans on top of my tofu.
Doris M on Nov 6, 2016
I thought I was getting Free Shipping when I estimated the shipping charges is showed $0.00, but at check out the shipping was $8.99. Lied!!!
I am an owner of a well used cracking TofuXpress, so with the what I thought was free shipping Sur La Table was cheaper, so I thought!!!
Gail J on Nov 6, 2016
I've heard nothing but great things about this product! Can't wait to try it!
Natasha R on Nov 6, 2016
This is a must-have for anyone who cooks with tofu. It neatly and thoroughly presses the liquid out of the tofu so that the tofu can absorb whatever flavorings are being used. The TofuXpress compresses the tofu so that it can be used perfectly in dishes where a dryer crumble is desired, such as in a scramble, or making a mock egg-salad, and for creating firm cubes. I use mine frequently, and have bought several as gifts.

because I want to learn how to cook tofu but I do not like the water taste without it being pressed

Debbie D on Jul 14, 2016
I want to be able to prepare tasty tofu at home. Even though I buy extra firm tofu I have read that the key is having the water removed from the tofu.
Ann W on Jul 4, 2016
I chose this item because I need an easy way to drain the water out of my tofu before I cook it. I like that this product's design maintains the shape of the tofu block and can also be used to marinade the tofu.

BEST ANSWER: The box does not say BPA free, but I think it said food grade on the Tofu Express website Q&A section. It is made in the U.S.
Where does it drain?
A shopper on Apr 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The water rises to the top and you pour it out. I couldn't imagine how it could work before I bought it,but it does work very well. I like that the bottom is also a container with a lid for storing leftover tofu, or for marinating the tofu. So much easier than books, paper towels and plates for pressing tofu. Make sure you press down the top evenly with both hands while twisting to avoid breaking the tabs that hold the pressure plate. Very easy to use.
