Skeptical at first but pleasantly surprised!
I had read a reviewer’s glowing comments about this device, was skeptical but purchased it anyway. This press is simple to use and quite effective (& speedy!) It is very much worth the price. The instruction booklet does warn against using “silken” style tofu as it breaks apart. I highly recommend this product especially if crispy tofu is your goal!

well worth the money
If you cook tofu a lot, treat yourself to this press. It improves the texture so much - chewier, less watery. Very easy to use. Put the tofu in and leave it for anywhere from one half hour to overnight.
It's ready when you are ready to use it. You can then marinate the pressed tofu right in it, too.

TofuXpress Toful Press
Love it! So much better than using my cast iron skillet and a million paper towels to press out water. Works exactly as promised and is very easy to clean. Have recommended to friends.

I read an article about this press and the author described bad experiences with other presses, including all the paper towels that drip, etc. This looks like an ingenious tool to quickly extract water from tofu. AND I didn't want to purchase this on Amazon.

I've had this product for about 6 years and it worked very well when preparing tofu. It recently broke, so I am replacing it.

I really think this product is a good alternative to buying packaged tofu and convenient enough to make me want to use it to make tofu as opposed to using household items to make it.

It seemed like the best value tofu press. Unlike plate presses, you can "set it and forget it" and even press tofu while at work or overnight without concern for mess.

Joanne S on Nov 25, 2018
I love that this tofu press holds the liquid, keeping the tofu moist and fresh, but easily spills out when you are ready to use. It also comes with a lid so that you can press the tofu, but store to use later. I've had mine for a couple of years, so it is very durable and worth the price.

I'm tired of have weights fall off of my tofu while I'm pressing it. This one got the best reviews and I can marinate the tofu in the same container!

Can't say more about this tofu press!!! So easy to use and clean. We are Vegan and we use it all the time. Purchasing 2 more. One for my son and his girlfriend and my mother in law. They are tofu lovers too!!!
Joyce F on Nov 11, 2018
already have one and find it is always in use so need to pick up a second. great way to press tofu and not have to deal with towels (paper or otherwise). Love that the 'bottom' converts to lid for fridge storage once pressed and cooked. . . . only wish you carried the Light Tension Spring version for the softer tofu's but pricewise still went with this one even for my second one

BPA FREE?
A shopper on Jan 27, 2015
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.
Does it ever break the tofu?
Andrea F on Feb 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It looks like they have changed the design from the one I bought, so I can't speak for this generation, but the one I have does not break the tofu when I start out with firm or extra firm tofu. This generation looks like an even better design, so I don't imagine that this one would either.
I do a lot of food prep and would like to be able to press about four or five blocks of tofu to prep for cooking in the same day. Would this product allow me to press one block after another, each taking a few minutes time? Or is there space for pressing more than one block at a time? Or do I just need to plan ahead and press a block at a time, allowing each block a good amount of time, one after another (and maybe taking a few hours that way before I can bake or cook with the tofu)?
A shopper on Nov 18, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The container only holds one block of 14-15 oz. tofu. I haven't measured the exact time to that it takes to press tofu to the point of no more removable moisture, but it takes over an hour at room temp. Note that I pour off the liquid periodically during this time.
If I try to hurry the process by pushing on the flat lid under the spring, the tofu starts to separate at the edges.
If you need to press multiple blocks, you might try sandwiching the tofu between two sheet pans and put weights (bricks?) spaced on top. You'll get a lot of liquid, so place the assembly next to the sink...
What size block of tofu can you press with this?
A shopper on Sep 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Standard store bought package of tofu fits just fine. The press is 5 1/2" x 6 1/2" x 5 1/4" and we have not purchased any tofu that did not fit this size. Also, we absolutely love this press and bought one for a friend who also loves it.
How long is needed to press the tofu?
A shopper on Jul 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It's pretty quick - I pressed tofu last night that I was going to fry, and I probably let it press about 20 minutes before I sliced it up. The water rises to the top and you pour it off, so basically when it stops producing any more water, it's done. I was using an extra firm tofu, so it may take longer for a softer one.
Can this press be used for paneer?
kitchenscullion on Feb 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I haven’t used paneer but if it comes in a block similar to tofu and it’s fairly firm, it should work.
Is this item available in the stores?
A shopper on Aug 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it is available in stores.
