That Tofu Thing
Tofu offers a world of delicious possibilities, but for many dishes you need to remove the water from it. This improves the texture and frees up space for your flavour-packed marinade. That Tofu Thing releases water from all sides of the tofu block, giving you drier, firmer tofu in a shorter time.
It's easy to use: place the tofu between the two panels, slide the clamp over and gently apply pressure. You can really feel what you're doing!

How do I press tofu?
Place the tofu block between the two halves and slide the clamp over. Give the block a gentle squeeze and take up the slack with the screw. Then leave it to drain - you can stand it up on the sink drainer for maximum efficiency or put it on its side. After a few minutes, give it another squeeze and screw it in a little more. Repeat until you’ve got the consistency you want - this depends on your recipe and what you intend to do with it.
How do I clean it?
That Tofu Thing is dishwasher-safe. Disassemble the press and place the white components in the top of the dishwasher, or wash them up conventionally. The lattice panels can be separated if desired. When you’re finished, pop it in its bag and put it in a drawer. It’ll be waiting for you next time you want perfect tofu!
Why do I need one? Can’t I use a tea towel and a couple of books?
Yes, you can. However, it’s messy, you end up with a wet towel and it’s not as effective - the towel can only soak up so much moisture before it’s saturated. Like anything, if you’re serious about it, you need the kit. One of the features of That Tofu Thing is the control that it offers, allowing you to get the texture just right.
What is the best sort of tofu to use?
Firstly, make sure you're using firm or extra-firm tofu. Silken tofu is soft and not intended to be pressed. That Tofu Thing will take blocks of up to 120mm x 90mm x 50mm. This is a typical size for a 400g tofu block.
