Product Description

For a productive, enjoyable afternoon pressing apples, the Pioneer Junior cider press is your perfect companion. This is one of our most popular presses and for good reason: it's on the smaller side compared to some of the other press models, yet has the same quality construction and luxury of an apple grinder.

The Pioneer Junior is a smaller, less expensive apple press for sale, ideal for the homeowner with only a few trees. The affixed grinder makes light work of any apples and other hard fruits, turning them to pulp and tipping it directly into the pressing tub below. The flywheel is a joy to operate with it's smooth, perfectly weighted rotation.

It has the capacity to press a half bushel of whole apples at a time and with the attached grinder, there’s no need to peel or cut them up beforehand. From a full tub of pulp, this press will easily produce between 1 -2 gallons of juice. The construction consists of grade #2 pine (has some bark on the edges) as well as Baltic birch plywood. It comes mostly assembled when it arrives: all you need to do is bolt it together and you’re good to go.

The whole package includes a pressing bag as well some EZ-DO Polyurethane Gel.

You'll get a great amount of joy and satisfaction with the Pioneer Junior, that's a guarantee. Many an afternoon will be chased away making your own juices and cider and you'll be rewarded with a lot to show for it. It's a great press for all the family; people of all ages usually can't resist a go at turning the flywheel and tightening the pressing screw. It's a great piece of kit and every bit as good as it looks.

Product Reviews

  1. Sturdy and Functional 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Oct 2017

    I've been wanting a press for a long time but have been unwilling to spend the amount of money that I thought it would take to get a reliable product, and sadly my husband and I don't really have what it takes to make one from plans.
    This press was more affordable than anything else I've priced and easy for (even us!) to put together. We made our first pressing of Roxbury Russets yesterday and it was easy to operate and the cider was absolutely delicious. I say 'was', because it disappeared really quickly!


  2. Perfect press for my needs 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th Aug 2017

    Solid piece of equipment. Wish I knew I was getting EZ-Do sealer/protection coating gel in the kit, that would have saved me $32.00.
    Easy and sort of fun assembly. Definitely apply the EZ-Do finish product to the entire unit. It's worth the effort and time. So far it seems to be well made.


  3. Nice little press 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th Apr 2017

    Nice compact size with the grinder makes it very convenient. Just as a note, you still need to put the varnish sealer on all the wood pieces as they come as just bare wood. I would recommend sanding the pieces smooth before sealing with at least 3 coats - especially the pieces that come in direct contact with the juice. But if you take the time to do this you should have a quality press that will last many generations.


  4. Ease of construction. 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Aug 2014

    It was easy to assemble, now all we have to do is harvest enough apples to try it out!


  5. Great for all the family! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Jul 2014

    The Pioneer Junior is perfect for us. I remember making cider with my parents when I was a child and now we can do the same with our kids. This is an ideal press for all the family. It as easy enough to assemble and equally easy to operate.
