Review: EZ Tofu Press

Cooking with firm or extra firm tofu sometimes requires that your kitchen counter look like a Jenga game, with cutting boards and all sorts of pots and cans piled on top to press out the excess water, unless you have a tofu press. If you’re like me, you’ve contemplated buying a tofu press but gave up because they’re too expensive or will take up too much space in your kitchen cabinets. So when EZ Tofu Press contacted me asking if I’d like to try their press, I was excited.

The press is slimmer than the others I’d seen and more affordable too. It comes assembled, with the nuts and bolts in place. It’s pretty flat for storing, except for the bolts sticking up/out, but you could probably break it apart for flatter storing, if necessary. I store mine as is.

It’s easy to use (see photos below), makes very little mess and is easy to clean up. Those are three huge pluses in my book.

The only con I found with the product is that one of the boards warped a bit when we used a block of extra firm tofu. We may have pressed a bit too much, but we sure did get all the water out!

Tighten the nuts on the press to squeeze out water

Turn the press on its side and place on top of a plate to drain


It’s that easy! And clean-up is as easy as using a sponge and warm soapy water.

If you’re in the market for a tofu press, I recommend the EZ Tofu Press. It gets the job done without fuss.

    Thank you for the fair and balanced review. I do want to point out that the press plate is made of virgin HDPE, it will flex during the pressing procedure…this is normal. I have used mine for a year and the HDPE press plate returns to its original position after use. In addition, I have washed mine in a dishwasher, top rack with a “no heat dry” setting and it is in very good condition with no warping. HDPE is FDA approved for cooking and used on many food related products. I think that you will find that this is the best Tofu Press value on the market today and based on my sales, it should be the number one selling tofu press!
