No Pain, Just Drain.

This wooden food press is perfect for making cheese and removing excess moisture from store-bought dairy products.

It's perfect for making feta, halloumi, and paneer, as well as pressing tofu, tempeh, and vegan cheeses.

Made from solid timber, this drain box is durable and hassle-free. Easily fit up to 7 blocks of your favorite store-bought tofu or 4 quarts of unpressed curds.

It's also the ultimate musubi maker and sushi cake container! Explore the versatility of this tofu press for yourself; you won't be disappointed.


Why we made this

No pain, just drain! When we were unable to find a decent cheese press that could stand up to regular use, we designed a sturdy feta frame to make Feta Cheese and squeaky halloumi.

Nearly a decade later, the design of this press has evolved, but the function remains the same. Whether you're making non-dairy cheese, extra firm tofu, or a spam musubi, you'll find more than one reason to love this frame.
