Welcome to TofuXpress, the new way to press tofu.  Everyone knows tofu is great for you.  It’s a great source of protein, low in fat, high in nutrients like calcium, and versatile.  It’s the protein of choice for those that choose healthy eating over high fat proteins.  And its not just for vegetarians any more.

Here’s what people are saying about TofuXpress:

If you cook frequently with tofu, this press is excellent for draining the excess water. Draining the water leaves a better textured tofu, and it also allows the tofu to absorb more flavor from a marinade. I sometimes like to press the tofu, and then freeze it for a unique, more “meaty” texture. I used to press tofu between 2 dinner plates in the kitchen sink, with books stacked on top. This tofu press is so much more efficient and less messy. And you can easily press the tofu while it’s in the refrigerator. Love it.

– Just large enough to do the job, doesn’t take up much fridge space.
– No more mess, no paper towels, just put the tofu in the press and forget about it.
– Easy c...
