About EZ Tofu Press: The white press plates on the EZ Tofu Press are made of HDPE (high density polyethylene), approved by the Food and Drug Administration for use with food. Each press plate is cut using a CNC milling machine for exact size and hole configuration. The bolts, nuts, and washers are made of food grade stainless steel. Using the EZ Tofu Press is simple, the tension knobs, push the press plate down and squeeze water from tofu. There are no springs required and therefore no springs to wear out! By washing on the top rack or by hand, the EZ Tofu Press should provide many years and provide great taste. Watch the video below:
The One Green Planet Verdict: We tried out the EZ Tofu Press and were impressed with how well it dried our tofu!
We tried the tofu press for both a large and a small block of tofu. For the smaller block of tofu, the water was drained within about 5 minutes. For the larger block of tofu, we let it drain for about 10 to 15 minutes. The directions recommend tightening the knobs every 2 to 4 minutes for the most efficient drying time.
The press is very user-friendly. Simply loosen the knobs, place your tofu in between the two white plates, tighten the knobs, and place sideways on top of a plate. To clean, you can either hand wash it or put it in the top rack of the dishwasher.
The tofu press is great for any recipe you would like to use firm or extra firm tofu for. Without all of that excess water, the tofu is able to soak up extra flavor and doesn’t get watered down. Try it for scrambles, burritos, making ricotta “cheese”, or just about anything!
