How to Use the EZ Tofu Press in 4 easy steps:
Lift top plate so the tofu brick will slide in. When placing tofu brick into the press, make sure to center the tofu using the centering marks on the bottom press plate. Don’t forget to put a plate or bowl underneath to catch dripping water.
With Tofu centered between the press plates, compress the tofu with a slight amount of tension on the knobs, with the brick now secure, stand EZ Tofu Press on its side for better water removal and begin the tension process. Either screw simultaneously or alternate between knobs so the tofu brick is pressed evenly. Tighten until there is resistance and the water starts to drip out.
Pressing can take 5 to 15 minutes depending on the how fast tension is applied. To quickly dry tofu, tighten knobs every 2-4 minutes, alternating or simultaneously tensioning knobs. If you are not in a hurry, tightening can be done over longer periods of time. As an example, to produce a dry block of tofu of 1-1/4” inches (If using standard. 2” thick tofu block), tension EZ Tofu Press between 7/8” to 1” between press plates. After several uses, you will find what works best. During pressing, the press plates may bend under tension; this is common, after use both will revert back to their original shape.
When “dry”, reverse tension knobs and slide brick out. Some cracking of the tofu brick may occur from pressing, this is normal. Slice, marinate (optional), and cook!
