Tofuture Tofu Press and Tofu Making Kit Giveaway

Tofuture Tofu Press

It has come to my attention there are people out there who don’t press tofu. If you’re one of these people, then please read on because you NEED what I’m giving away today. If you’re someone who’s seen the tofu light and already presses your tofu, then you should also please read on because you probably press your tofu by balancing books and other heavy shit on top of it and therefore you also NEED this tofu press. If you’re one of the people who read my review the other week and have already bought one of these presses, you should also read on because you probably know someone who doesn’t press tofu and therefore you can give them this tofu press and be their best friend forever.

Or you can just flog it on ebay.

Either way, this giveaway is for A Very Good Thing Indeed. You might have seen me gushing about the Tofuture Tofu Press a couple of weeks ago but if not (or if you want to refresh your memory), you can read my review of it here. And not only am I giving away a Tofuture Tofu Press, Tofuture are also chucking in one of their tofu making kits too, which contains:

  • 500g soya beans
  • 35g nigari
  • 2 cheesecloth squares
  • a set of instructions

That strange looking substance is nigari – don’t try to smoke it

See that bag of white stuff in the photo? I thought Tofuture had also chucked in a bag of crystal meth for me, but that’s the nigari – a coagulant used in making tofu. Although, obviously I was disappointed not to get the chance to recreate a scene from Breaking Bad (ideally with a semi-clad Jesse), it was probably just as well, as I would have no idea how to declare Class A drugs on my tax return.

Tofu press

Anyway, semi-clad Jesses aside, what makes this tofu press different from others (not that there are many; I’ve only seen a couple, and they’ve only been available from the US) is that this press completely contains the tofu (middle container) and the water it’s pressing out (container on the left), so once you’ve pulled the bands down over the hooks (the container on the right goes on top of the middle container holding the tofu, squeezing the water out into the container on the left), that’s it.

Then you can put the press out of the way in the fridge and you don’t have to worry about having to keep adjusting the springs or putting it on a plate or in the sink to catch the water. After you’ve pressed your tofu, you can then use the container to marinate it in. Genius.

This tofu press is brilliant and you NEED one.

The Tofuture tofu press fits neatly in your fridge

  1. A tofu press?! I had no idea there is such a thing. I would love to try it. I’m not particularly keen on shop-bought tofu, but I would gladly make it at home with my own spices and flavours.

  2. This looks really handy – I’ve had far too many kitchen mishaps trying to balance things on top of a tofu block to press it!

  3. Jacqui said I had to enter or else I wouldn’t survive the day out…Honestly I would love to experiment with this!

  4. I became vegan this year and would love to experiment with this as I have never even heard of it before, and I do love a good gadget

  5. Ooh this looks amazing! To be honest, the hassle of pressing Tofu does sometimes put me off cooking it so I love that this does all the hard work for you and there’s no spring adjusting etc either! Alice x

  6. I’ve been looking for a good tofu press for a while since it annoys the flip out me to be trying to balance stuff on my tofu. Been waiting for a mold for making tofu for ages from eBay but I’m giving up all hoe of it ever arriving now. Thanks for sharing. I’ll be buying one of these if I’m not lucky enough to win 🙂

  7. I was just surfing amazon yesterday for a tofu press! Even downloaded plans to use two small plastic cutting boards and some screws… This one is actually what I was looking for, but could not find it. 🙁

  8. Ooh, this looks great. I bought a tofu making kit with a press before, but the press pretty much still required books/heavy objects to function so I never actually used it! This one, I definitely would.

  9. I bought one of these presses a month ago – genuinely fantastic! I would never say no to another one though for when I’m bulk home-smoking my tofu (it takes tofu to another dimension!)

  10. Aaaaah I’d love to win this! My friend bought two at vegfest (I couldn’t afford it! D: ) Even if I don’t win I’ll be saving my pennies to get one! <3

  11. I lost a new, very expensive bottle of sloe gin at Christmas pressing tofu. I vowed never to press the stupid stuff again, or to use it again!!

  12. I’ve never seen one of these but my son loves tofu and cooking new things.Being a vegetarian he would appreciate this.

  13. Having been put off making tofu by the total ballache of pressing it I would love to try using a press. It would be nice to have a change from Quorn!

  14. A fab comp it would be really interesting to make my own tofu and experiment with different but non-mind altering flavours 🙂

  15. Saw these at veg fest and have been debating one since. Thank you for the review! Really helpful. Nicer than my usual cooling rack with lots of kitchen roll and some tin cans set up I am usually stuck with. And maybe seeing how it is made will stop the other half from being so afraid of tofu 🙂

  16. I’m vegetarian and dairy intolerant, so eat a lot of tofu. I am currently one of those who presses tofu using a metal tray and a bunch of tin cans, but this is far from ideal as it doesn’t give a uniform result. I also once had the “brilliant” idea of hanging the tofu in a cheesecloth to drain, nothing much came out, then my son decided to squeeze the cheesecloth and we ended up with tofu vermicelli everywhere and had to throw the whole lot out, including the cheesecloth. A proper tofu press would be brilliant.

  17. I know my vegan daughter would love this, but she’s always busy doing stuff and I love entering to win things, so I’ll enter with her in mind. If that’s okay?

  18. Oh wow, this looks fab! I’ve just started to experiment with tofu so it would be perfect for me 🙂 Thanks for the chance!

  19. I love tofu but I must confess that I’ve never actually made it from scratch so I’d love to press it myself 🙂

  20. I’ve wanted a tofu press for so long! I love tofu and how versatile it is. really want to try making my own tofu next so this giveaway is perfect haha.

  21. This would be wonderful. Although standing in the tree pose, balanced on top of a chopping board under which the tofu sits works pretty well, some days I just don’t have the time for it 🙂

  22. And here I was thinking the tofu making process might be difficult and terrifying…consider me a convert to home – made tofu 🙂

  23. I am a huge tofu enthusiast – it was my craving when I was pregnant with my son 28 years ago! I would lie awake at night thinking about what I might cook with it in the morning, sometime I didn’t wait until morning. I have cooked many things with tofu for my food blog, but at my grand old age (the profile pic was taken a few years ago when I was a punk rocker) I remain a tofu virgin – if you know what I mean. I would love to have bash at making tofu and this press looks like just the ticket to helping me!

  24. Woah what an amazing invention! I wrap tofu in kitchen roll with a plate on top! It never works haha! Great blog 🙂

  25. Tofu is life, would love to be able to press it properly without making a mess every time I balance piles of pans and books on it 🙂

  26. making my own tofu would be a dream instead of spending so much money on premade packs!! thankyou very much for the giveaway!!

  27. I’ve always wanted to get on the tofu bandwagon but can never seem to find it anywhere!! This would be an awesome solution thanks for showing me the way!
