Tofu Press – Tofuture
A unique and stylish tofu press that removes the water from unpressed tofu simply and effectively.
Tofu is one of the most versatile, healthy and delicious foods around, but to get the most out of tofu you need to press it.
The Tofu Press removes water from tofu cleanly and easily by pressing it gradually which gives it an excellent, firm texture and consistency.
Pressing tofu is vital to allow it to absorb marinades or any flavour of the dish. You can also use the press to make your own tofu or use the outer tub container to marinade your pressed tofu.
The Tofu Press is compact, easy to use and fits into the fridge whilst pressing.
Dimensions W14cm x D12cm x H7cm / BPA free.
There are the 3 simple steps to use the press and start your Tofu Revolution:
Step 1: Remove the tofu from the packaging and drain off any excess water
Step 2: Place the block into the inner tub, the green container with perforated holes
Step 3: Replace the lid, pull the elastic bands down around the hooks and push the handles down to impart a continuous pressure on the tofu.
Now leave the press in the fridge for the desired amount of time, you don’t need to return to the press to increase the pressure half-way through the pressing time. The longer you leave the tofu, the better it will be pressed. We recommend the following guideline pressing times depending on what you are making.
- Short press, 15-30 mins – for ‘cheese’ sauce, ‘chocolate’ mousse or ‘cheese’cake
- Medium press, 1-2 hours – for pasties, quiches and pies
- Long press, 4 hours to overnight – for stir-fries, kebabs and baked tofu
When you’re ready to either marinate or cook your tofu, simply release the bands by opening the handles, remove the tofu and pour out the water. You’re ready to marinade, whiz, bake or fry your tofu.
