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 other models in our range, yet has the same quality construction and luxury of an apple grinder.

The Pioneer Junior is a smaller, less expensive press, 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 press comes with 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.
