pressto! Tofu Press

pressto! Tofu Press - Less Water. More Flavor.

Many vegetarians, vegans, and healthy eaters prefer to substitute tofu for meat. Tofu is an excellent source of protein that contains nowhere near the amount of fat of red meats, poultry, and pork. While tofu is a healthy alternative, many people either find it too cumbersome and time-consuming to prepare their own tofu. In turn, they either do not eat tofu as often as they like, or they end up spending more money for already prepared tofu. Luckily, the brains over at quirky.com have come up with an excellent solution and kitchen tool for quick and easy tofu preparation called the pressto! tofu press.

When tofu is bought unprepared, it comes in a packaged containg the tofu and a bed of water. Because the tofu comes in water, it becomes water logged. In order for tofu to truly absorb flavors and marinades the water must be pressed out. The pressto! tofu press is a small countertop device ergonomically designed to press out the water from the tofu and saves preparation time by automaticall cubing the tofu block as it is pressed.
