MeatProcessingProducts has the lowest prices, and lots of great reviews on their site. Here's the problem: I bought a Weston Fruit and Wine Press, and had lots of trouble with it, most of all the fact that the rachet mechanism is cheap metal alloy that flakes who knows what sh*t into the juice, spoiling the cider, and perhaps making it toxic (who knows what's in there?)
I contacted the company to return it and they said it was a warranty problem, and they don't take ANY returns on used equipment...if I didn't use it I wouldn't know if it worked, duh!
Anyway they refused to help me, and I contacted Weston, and they were willing to give me a replacement mechanism, but no refund. When I tried to post a negative review on MeatProcessingProducts.com to warn others, I recieved the message "We are currently collecting reviews on this product" and no way to post one. Same with the review of the quality of the service and site in general-no way to post, but they have literally dozens of positive reviews. I'd say yes, that's a scam. I plan to report them to the FTC and would recommend others do the same. Horrible experience.
