Tofu Press by Tofuture
The days of pressing tofu under a tower of precariously balanced tins are over. Tofuture have created 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 press is compact and easy to store (W14cm x D12cm x H7cm) and the outer tub can also be used as a container to marinade the pressed tofu.

The gradual nature of the pressing will give your tofu the perfect texture and consistency for it to absorb gorgeous marinades or the beautiful flavours of the dish you are preparing. The Tofu Press is easy to use, dishwasher safe and fits into your fridge when pressing. It will revolutionise the way you enjoy tofu.
Now a world of tastes and textures opens up which enables you to explore the versatility of tofu. Roast, grill, fry, bake in a pie, whiz into mousse, create amazing veggie burgers, egg-free quiches, a completely new pizza topping, the list is endless.
Tofu Press Instructions
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.
