Scissors & Spice Giveaway: Enter to Win an Awesome TofuXpress!

The TofuXpress is "a versatile food press that presses tofu, veggies, cheese, and other foods. Make vegan cheese, macrobiotic salads, and more! Press water out, let flavor in!"



If you have been following Scissors and Spice, you know how I have often extolled the virtues of one of my favorite kitchen gadgets, the TofuXpress.

The TofuXpress presses excess water out of foods in a quick and efficient way. No more stacking heavy cans and water filled pots on top of your tofu to squeeze out its excess water! This makeshift process always takes too long, squashes your tofu, makes a mess and never really removes all of the water. Who needs to deal with that malarkey? You've got better things to do!

The lid press the tofu and then snaps into place.


With the TofuXpress, you place your block of tofu in the press, place the tension spring lid on top of the tofu, snap the lid into place, and the gentle, even pressure compresses the tofu and rids it of any water. The best part is, you can leave it in the fridge while all this magic is happening! Once you drain the water, the tofu can then be neatly marinated in the press tray! Ingenious! And the way the tofu fries and bakes after it has been pressed is like nothing you have experienced before.

Look at how much water was removed after only 5 minutes!

But wait! There's more! The TofuXpress works for more than tofu! Remember when I was into the Bahn Mi making? When I would pickle daikon for the sandwiches, I used have to salt it and then it sit a paper towel lined colander for at least an hour to remove the vegetable's water. With the TofuXpress, it took about 5 minutes, and there was no mess! Hoo-ray!

Ok, enough of my crushin' on the TofuXpress! Are you ready to WIN one?

  7. I just followed them on Twitter and liked on Facebook, but couldn't find a way to subscribe on their blog page ... :-(

    I actually have one and I LOVE IT! But I'm entering because my best friend Sheridan (the one who is getting married in June) really wants one. If I win, I'm gifting to her.

  12. Ever since one of my online vegan-surfing nights a few weeks ago, after discovering
    TofuXpress.com, I knew I must have one, of course, for me but with one I will be able to make a greater variety of tofu dishes/ desserts in less time than ever before - what a wonderful convenience! I love being Vegan by "dishie" example - I bring something tasty to a gathering and the questions abound!
    Thanks for the contest. ~Carol

    Lavanga-ji: I subscribed, I liked, I shared the link on Facebook, and I tweeted. Question: you wrote that we could leave an extra comment for EACH time we tweet or post on FB about the comment, then you said we can enter FOUR times. Which is correct?
