To that end, after much experimentation, we have come up with an great alternative solution for those who would rather just plug it it. A flexible silicone rubber heating element is attached to the metal body of the press and it heats up to the exact correct temperature to produce the optimum amount of oil from the press. See Video Below The Electric Model 2 works just as good or better than the flame, easy, just plug it in! Just like our original Oil Press Expeller, it comes with the small silicone top hopper and does not come with a container to catch the oil.
I did a pretty detailed review on the Piteba back in - http: I ended up using shelled pumpkin seeds pepitas from the store bulk bin. I emailed with the maker and he suggested adding a bit of water to the flax because the shells can be so hard they make it impossible to press the seeds by hand, but I never had a chance to try it out.
I had made a facial oil from it last time and it was fantastic, I was not happy when I ran out and I look forward to having some homegrown. I can also grow hazel here and so I will probably eventually try that also. OH and for those of you in tropical climates - I was also able to press pieces of dried coconut, I bought one for the purpose.
Cut it into chunks and let it dry thoroughly, and then pressed it. Probably not the most efficient way to press coconut but it still worked. I will agree that the Piteba is perhaps a little small for a homestead size.
Having said that, I think if someone was ingenious enough to rig it up to a bike or something, and build a larger funnel cone for it, that would make a big difference production wise.Publications in the literature report oil extraction from L. pisonis nuts by cold extraction , and also using organic solvent by Soxhlet [1,24,25] and Bligh&Dyer methods .
Lecythis Pisonis is the nut producing tree native to Amazonia and Brazil that belongs to the Lecythidaceae family. Lecythis Pisonis is called Cream Nut, Paradise Nut, Monkey Pot and Sapucaia Nut.
