We make a lot of tofu-based dishes in our house. Like many vegans, we love it as a versatile and cost-effective protein source, and it's easy to incorporate into dishes. I have been dying to try a tofu press I've seen advertised called TofuXpress. This gadget squeezes the water out of your tofu without having to waste paper towels, and without having to balance your entire cookbook collection on top of your tofu. Honestly, I hate draining tofu so much, that I often just end up giving it a quick squeeze over the sink, which sometimes leaves me with watery meals with less-than-optimal texture, depending on what I'm making. Well, I finally got my hands on one of these fancy tofu presses!
It's so easy to use! Just remove the top, stick your tofu in there, then click the top back in place. Set the whole thing in the fridge for about an hour, then drain the liquid out.
That's it! No mess, no wet towels. It's pretty dang convenient. You can also marinade in the Tofuxpress, as it comes with a marinading lid.
I'm really not one for excessive kitchen gadgets, but since I received my Tofuxpress about three weeks ago, I've used it probably seven times. That's more than I use my food processor! And my crispy fried tofu has never been crispier.
I would have gotten one of these goodies a long time ago had I known it was going to work so awesome. The one thing that held me back is the hefty $40 price tag. But considering how often I use it now, I feel it's well worth it. How about you? We are considering selling the Tofuxpress in our store and I want to know. Would you be willing to pay $40 for this product?
