Pomegranate Juicer

Written by 

Question: I have been looking for a stainless steel hand held pomegranate looks like a giant garlic press...Only one store in Yuba City carried it, Harpers Ferry.  They no longer carry it...I want to make my own jelly but am not able to locate one.  I don't want a commerical electric juicer because I was told that the seeds would only ruin the juicer and too much of the seed would be chipped and not squeezed.  CAN YOU HELP ME PLEASE TO LOCATE THIS HAND HELD JUICER???

Answer: We juice our pomegranates for jelly too (love it on toast!) so I know how juicing pomegranates can wear you out.

I too looked across Google "pomegranate hand press stainless steel" and could not find the hand press that we use although there were a lot of different types that were supposedly useful for pomegranates.  Many of the citrus juicers shown can be used - and some not to be used.  The hand press does a better job in my opinion by not grinding the pulp into the juice.  I think I know what you are looking for, but I too could not find it.  Sorry - we are not giving up ours - it is much needed to satisfy our craving for pomegranate jelly.
