Factors to Consider When Buying a Rosin Press Machine
If you want to make high-quality rosin extracts, you need to buy a Rosin Press machine. Rosin Presses are designed to apply the perfect amount of heat and pressure to flower, hash, or kief, resulting in satisfying rosin dabs. With that said, the right press depends on your needs, and there are various factors to consider when buying a Rosin Press machine.
Some users will be more than satisfied with a simple, portable hand rosin press. Despite their small size, these rosin presses are still capable of producing high-quality extracts. Those who want larger yields or want to experiment with different pressing methods may prefer a larger, commercial-grade press.
Fortunately, there’s a good option for everyone. Here are a few of the most important factors to consider when buying a Rosin Press machine.
One of the first things you’ll want to consider is how large you want your rosin press to be. Buying the biggest rosin press isn’t necessarily the best option for everyone. Sometimes it’s better to buy a smaller machine that’ll give you satisfying rosin yields without taking up too much space. With that said, some users may be better served by a larger machine.
If you’re simply creating rosin extracts at home, a portable, handheld press is the best option. For instance, the Ju1ceBox Handheld Rosin Press is powerful enough to give you potent rosin dabs whether you prefer to use flower, hash, or kief. It’s also small enough to stash in your drawer when you’re not using it.
Those looking for a commercial-grade rosin press might want a larger machine, such as the Ju1ceBox Twist Top Rosin Press. Using a twist-top system lets you apply more pressure to your material. It’s also packed with more features. For even more power, you might want to consider the 2-Ton Bottle Jack Rosin Press. However, due to its weight and size, it’s best for industrial purposes.
The plate size of your machine is arguably even more important than the size of the machine itself. Your rosin press plates are responsible for applying heat and pressure to your chosen material, so your plates need to match the size of each batch. That means you’ll need larger plates if you’re trying to extract more rosin faster.
The Handheld Rosin Press features 1" x 1.5" plates - enough for around 1 to 2 grams. This is plenty for those who produce rosin extracts as a casual hobby. Using smaller plates can also help you focus on squeezing as much rosin out of each batch as possible. However, if you have a lot of material and want larger yields, you’ll want a machine with larger plates.
With 2.4" x 3.5” plates, the Twist Top Rosin Press provides much more surface area for your flower, kief, or hash. This means you can create larger yields quickly. It’s important you also buy the right parchment paper tickets and rosin bags for your machine. For instance, if you’re using 2.4” x 3.5” plates, make sure you use Large Rosin Bags and Table Top Rosin Press Parchment Paper.
One of the most important factors to consider when buying a Rosin Press machine is how much temperature the machine delivers. The temperature you use to press your rosin can determine the texture, consistency, and even the cannabinoid and terpenoid content of your extracts. Sometimes different temperatures are better for different materials. You can learn more in our guide to the best temperatures to press rosin at.
The Ju1ceBox Handheld Rosin Press instantly heats from room temperature to 250°F when switched on. This gives you plenty of heat to produce satisfying rosin, especially if you’re using flower. It also takes the guesswork out of your pressing as you’ll get consistent high-quality extracts, making it great for casual users.
With that said, some users may prefer to experiment with different temperatures - especially if they prefer using different materials or want a different rosin consistency. The Twist Top Rosin Press makes it easy to adjust the temperature of your plates before pressing. With adjustable temperature from 0-450°F, this is ideal for those who want to try different styles of rosin.
Not only do you need high temperatures to produce rosin, but you also need to apply enough pressure. Rosin Press machines are designed to apply optimal levels of pressure to your material to produce satisfying rosin extracts. With that said, you might want to consider how much pressure each machine offers before buying.
The 2-Ton Bottle Jack Rosin Press can easily apply 2 tons of pressure to your material to produce fruitful yields. Meanwhile, the Twist Top Rosin Press is capable of producing 2.5 tons of pressure. You might want one of these commercial-grade machines if you’re trying to make large yields of rosin, but even smaller presses can deliver enough pressure for great rosin extracts.
One of the biggest benefits of using a handheld rosin press is that you can manually apply enough pressure to get satisfying rosin extracts. While these smaller machines are better for smaller yields, they’ll still give you more than enough pressure for casual extraction.

Naturally, another one of the factors to consider when buying a Rosin Press machine is how much it costs. Many of the large, commercial-grade Rosin Press machines out there cost hundreds or even thousands of dollars, making them impractical for those who want to casually produce rosin.
Fortunately, you can also find budget-friendly options that still apply enough heat and pressure to produce incredible extracts. The Ju1ceBox Handheld Rosin Press is the best option for casual users. At just $99.99, this portable machine is capable of giving you top-notch dabs for years to come.
At $399.99, the Ju1ceBox Twist Top Rosin Press also gives you incredible value for money. It’s capable of producing commercial-grade yields of rosin yet affordable enough for hobbyists. It also provides 2.5 tons of pressure and adjustable temperatures of 0-450°F. As such, it makes for a great option regardless of your needs and purposes.
From size to pressure to price, these are some of the most important factors to consider when buying a Rosin Press machine. The right machine for you depends on what you’re pressing rosin for and what features you need. Fortunately, there’s an affordable option for every kind of user.
Whether you’re looking for a simple handheld Rosin Press or a powerful tabletop machine with adjustable heat and pressure settings, you can find a range of Rosin Press machines and all the accessories you need at The Ju1ceBox.
