Pressing really does make such a great difference in tofu’s texture and ability to absorb flavours (Dear spell check, that’s how we spell it here in Canada, relax, have a cookie). Pressing and freezing both really help to make it have a more “meaty” texture, which is really nice for some dishes.
This is such a great and simple little gadget, and at such a reasonable price. I tend to press my tofu with a crazy and precarious group of plates, a big rock and a drain board – this would make things so much more simple.
Many people are anti-soy, I’m not one of them. I find that my body processes it very well, and I tend to feel really balanced when I include it in my meals a couple of times a week. I am very careful to only buy the organic, non-gmo varieties however.
The ad is pretty cheesy, and I’m pretty sure I can make one of these on my own, but I sure do love the idea.
