The TofuXpress is one of my favorite kitchen tools. I just added it to my arsenal this year, but it’s up there with my immersion blender! I was skeptical at first, but now that I use it all the time I wouldn’t want to be without it.
I don’t know about you, but here’s how I was pressing tofu: a cast iron pan on top of a cutting board with something else added in for weight. Then I would stand there to make sure nothing was going to fall on my dog.
(Somehow Brenna, my dog, senses the danger and makes sure to lay up against a counter next to where I place my tower of tofu pressing.) So it wasn’t pleasant, though I’ve gotten really good at catching pans as they get unbalanced and fall off. But it that really anyway to live when you can just put it in this device?
It’s unbelievably easy to use. There is a super-strong spring that puts the pressure on the tofu to express the liquid. It also does it in half the time.
The TofuXpress is a little expensive at $39.95, but it very well made. I don’t expect to have to buy another one for myself, but I will be getting a few as gifts. And if you put it on your Holiday gift list it won’t cost you a dime ; )
They also have tofu recipes on their site if you need some inspiration.
