The Piteba Oil Expeller is a low cost way to make your own high quality raw nut and seed oil at home. There are many videos showing its use on the internet, just search for Piteba. Suitable for almost all oil containing seeds with at least 25% oil in the seed. Will not work for grape seeds, or any stone fruit. The press does not come with the top hopper or a container to catch the oil. The hopper is made by cutting the top off a plastic pop or water bottle. The D2 cap transforms the Piteba oil expeller into a processing tool for fresh olives. With most olives you produce an excellent olive paste and from some varieties you even produce oil in 1 step. Piteba cannot advise you on the best olive varieties. It is up to you to test and see if the 1 step oil production method or olive paste production applies to your olives. Piteba hopes to get feedback from customers in order to inform others on the best varieties to use. How it’s done: OLIVE OIL Use fresh fully ripened oil olives. Fill the expeller with olives (including kernels) and push them into the screw with a stick while turning the crank. The olive press cake leaves the press and the oil comes through the oil slit. After settling, you have a clear olive oil. The exact procedure is explained in the manual that comes with the D-2 cap. OLIVE PASTE In case the olives cannot be pressed and produce oil in 1 step (to be determined for your olives in your experiment), you can use the D2 cap to crush the olives (including kernels) to produce a homogeneous fine structured olive paste. This paste is ready for malaxation and further processing with disks and a hydraulic piston press. PLEASECHECK THE OLIVE YOU PLAN TO USE TO BE SURE THEY ARE OIL OLIVES ANDNOT THE LARGER TABLE OLIVES. This press works and I cannot take returns stating it does not work as it is proven to work. You must follow the directions and have the correct olives. All returns will carry a restocking fee.
