KuKoo 7 Litre Fruit Crusher / Portable Pulper Manual Shredder / Apple Scratter Cider Wine Juice : Solid, reliable piece of kit for cider-making

Functions very perfectly, nevertheless a larger sized one would be greater.

The scratter arrived within just 2 times of its get. It appears to be robustly built with a stainless steelhopper and aluminium grinding teeth. The body is of painted steel. It successfully grinds up apples if they are quartered very first and looks to operate greatest if they are place in a couple at a time. A excellent instrument that will preserve me a lot of function. I will have to devise a frame to mount the scratter as it is a tiny difficult to equilibrium and use singlehandedly.

Crushes quartered apples beautifully into pulp for squeezing. Position on best of a bucket and flip the handle. Durable design and create i’ve crushed plenty of apples to make 90litres of juice so considerably.

Purchased collectively with fruit push (six litre). Really delighted with the crusher. We quartered the apples, in line with the guidance, and it manufactured pretty quick get the job done of them. The pulp was perfect for urgent and we bought a obtained quantity of juice out of them. Moderately sturdy and simple to clean with a hose pipe.

We have had 3 apple juicing classes since purchasing. We are the two shocked how sweet the juice is right after urgent the mashed apples even if the apple is tart to eat. Outstanding at mashing our quartered apples. Even so desires added anchoring as holding down wood cross bar with one hand and winding with the other final results in occasional movement of the full system when the mashing suddenly involves extra drive. Really should be a easy make any difference for a diyer to anchor additional firmly. A preceding reviewer instructed employing a hosepipe to clear, which is great guidance.

KuKoo 7 Litre Fruit Crusher / Portable Pulper Manual Shredder / Apple Scratter Cider Wine Juice : We have an old apple tree at home and every year far too many apples go to waste but not any more. Very good at its job and not too difficult to operate just resting on a bowl using the wooden handle provided.

It is really a great product and does what is claimed of itit performs at its finest if you only quarter or 3rd fill the hopper. I’m not certain as to what amount of output it’s aimed at but owning some many hundred body weight of apples to course of action, i am beginning to marvel. All in all, a very good products at a honest p[rice.

We crushed ample apples to make 3 gallons of apple juice for apple wine plus extra apples for pure apple juice. So substantially less difficult than the cooking approach and effectively worthy of each and every penny.

I never comprehend why somebody gave it one stars because it is effective particularly as expected. I suspect the one star human being did not realise you have to reduce up the apples. You only have to 50 percent regular sized apple and quarter significant cookers simply because if you really don’t, even with the crab sized apples they have a tendency to just roll above the enamel but this is as predicted and all makes do this, it really is just physics. The apples require a straight aspect to be grabbed by the enamel. But that aspect definitely will not get lengthy at all. On a pretty severe notice, this is a not a piece of kit to let the little ones enjoy with. If two people today use it you have be in settlement about by no means, ever putting your fingers inside of the hopper. There demands to be no person messing close to and no pets leaping all-around. This genuinely is not a toy or a video game.

I have employed this to mill apples to press for cider. It performs nicely and appears to be very well manufactured and solidly built. It’s light-weight enough to lift and use myself although i can see a spare pair of fingers to 50 % or quarter the apples just before milling would be useful. A rinse under the hose got it clear. Will not neglect this only mills the apples you’ll need a way to push the milled apples to extract the juice.

It can be not the least complicated of tools to use, you convert the handle and it scrapes on the steel hopper. You can not balance it securely on a bucket, and use it at the same time. So i have experienced to bolt it down on a lump of wooden. Having said that declaring all of this, it does crush the apples up to make urgent them extremely straightforward.

I never ever knew that cider-building was these actual physical function. It won’t halt at choosing the apples. Oh no – you’ve then got to mash the apples. Fortunately this equipment is remarkably efficient. It sits neatly on major of a cider press and the gearing of the crank handle can make it (relatively) effortless to mash a fantastic 7litres of chopped apple in a pair of minutes. Make no slip-up, your arm will get sore – but you will also get a whole lot extra juice from your apples than if you just tried topress then chopped. It is really easy to dis-assemble for cleaning, the steel hopper unclips and the mashing apparatus can be rinsed less than a tap. Mine has mashed a excellent 100kg of apples or so this time and it appears like new. You can find a knack to making use of it and the layout of the maching areas indicates that it will only work turning the crank in a clockwise course when wanting at the gadget from the crank-aspect.

  1. We have had three apple juicing sessions since purchasing. We are both amazed how sweet the juice is after pressing the mashed apples even if the apple is tart to eat. Excellent at mashing our quartered apples. However needs additional anchoring as holding down wooden cross bar with one hand and winding with the other results in occasional movement of the whole device when the mashing suddenly requires more force. Should be a simple matter for a diyer to anchor more firmly. A previous reviewer suggested using a hosepipe to clean, which is good advice. I also suggest a bottle brush to assist in loosening stubborn pieces of mashed apples.

    1. It’s not the easiest of equipment to use, you turn the handle and it scrapes on the metal hopper. You cannot balance it safely on a bucket, and use it at the same time. So i’ve had to bolt it down on a lump of wood. However saying all of this, it does crush the apples up to make pressing them extremely easy.

  3. I have used this to mill apples to press for cider. It works well and seems well made and solidly constructed. It’s light enough to lift and use myself though i can see a spare pair of hands to half or quarter the apples before milling would be helpful. A rinse under the hose got it clean. Don’t forget this only mills the apples; you’ll need a way to press the milled apples to extract the juice.

    It’s a good item and does what is claimed of itit works at its best if you only quarter or third fill the hopper. I’m not sure as to what level of production it’s aimed at but having some several hundred weight of apples to process, i’m beginning to wonder. All in all, a good product at a fair p[rice.

    1. I don’t understand why someone gave it 1 stars because it works exactly as expected. I suspect the 1 star person didn’t realise you have to cut up the apples. You only have to half regular sized apple and quarter big cookers because if you don’t, even with the crab sized apples they tend to just roll over the teeth but this is as expected and all brands do this, it’s just physics. The apples need a straight side to be grabbed by the teeth. But that part really doesn’t take long at all. On a very serious note, this is a not a piece of kit to let the kids play with. If two people use it you have be in agreement about never, ever putting your hands inside the hopper. There needs to be nobody messing around and no pets jumping around. This really is not a toy or a game.

    I never knew that cider-making was such physical work. It doesn’t stop at picking the apples. Oh no – you’ve then got to mash the apples. Thankfully this machine is remarkably effective. It sits neatly on top of a cider press and the gearing of the crank handle makes it (relatively) easy to mash a good 7litres of chopped apple in a couple of minutes. Make no mistake, your arm will get sore – but you will also get a lot more juice from your apples than if you just tried topress then chopped. It’s easy to dis-assemble for cleaning, the steel hopper unclips and the mashing apparatus can be rinsed under a tap. Mine has mashed a good 100kg of apples or so this season and it looks like new. There’s a knack to using it and the design of the maching parts means that it will only work turning the crank in a clockwise direction when looking at the device from the crank-side.
