Benefits of Making Tofu at Home

One of the hidden benefits in making your own tofu is "okara," the solids that are left after the soy milk has been strained off. It is a very nutritious, high-fiber food, containing a significant amount of the protein content of the soybeans. Okara can be used for croquettes, fritters, okara crepes, vinegared or sauteed okara, or okara breads and muffins. And of course you'll have fresh tofu to simmer, grill, deep-fry, make tofu burgers and cutlets; tofu sauces, spreads, dips & dressings; chilled tofu shakes, smoothies, creams, and puddings.


More About Japanese Cypress Wood

The beauty and fragrance of Japanese cypress wood or hinoki has been highly appreciated for centuries for its subtle fragrance, as well as for the beautiful appearance of the wood's natural grain. The distinctive aroma of Japanese cypress derives from a naturally occurring substance in the resin known in Japanese as "hinoki-jushi." This not only has a pleasing, refreshing aroma, but also has been recognized as possessing excellent natural antibiotic properties. Thus Japanese cypress has been used for many centuries in making all kinds of kitchen utensils, as well as drinking cups, an oke (Hinoki wooden pail), and even Japanese hot-tub-style baths.

    I would have ordered this years ago if I had known it would be this easy to make tofu. Now I have fresh, organic tofu anytime I want it.

  3. Made in Japan

    by Hiroshi on 06 Fri,2017


    I was happy to find a wooden mold made in Japan. A bit pricey as others as suggested, but looks like a great investment and like much better than what I was using before. I'll update once I've tried to make a batch.

  4. Quality Japanese Product

    by Hiroshi on 06 Mon,2017


    I've made two batches, with the next being better than the previous one. Instructions are accurate and result in amazing tofu. Totally worth it. The wood dries up well and holds up great so far.

    It is a bit pricy but that likely has to do with import costs. The wood and straining materials are strong and well crafted. Overall I am pleased with this item however the instructions given are not so good first they go only by grams which takes a little trouble/research to convert 500g of Soybeans = roughly 3 Cups. I also advise to halve the recipe they provide and divide that when pureeing the soy beans. Overall just buy a tofu cook book and use the recipe and suggestions from the book which are more substantial and can help you troubleshoot if you have problems. I have and recommend "The Book of Tofu and Miso" which also provides recipes for the byproducts of making the tofu too.

  6. Good

    by Frank on 05 Mon,2014


    The packaging is great. The product is well made. The instructions are a problem. Of the four times I tried to make tofu only one turned out. That was after a call to your customer service. She suggested that I double up on the coagulator. That worked only once. Better instructions and a video would nice.

    Note from CFH: Please contact customer support for troubleshooting advice before discarding product. Many starters can be saved with minor adjustments.

    • is the cypress wood harvested in a sustainable manner, no habitat loss etc?
      Can I use this kit to make tofu starting with soya beans instead of soy milk?
    • You make tofu from soymilk, and this kit's instructions tell you how to first make the soymilk with soybeans before making the tofu. I'm sorry, but there is no information on how the cypress is harvested.

    • Is Negari preferred over Terra Alba or vice versa?
    • They produce a different texture and it would be a personal preference. Japanese style tofu is made with Nigari, Chinese style is made with Terra Alba, you might try both to see which you prefer.

    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No
  • From Cheryl at 4/12/2013 12:16 PM
    • Do I soak the tofu press in hot water and rice vinegar OVERNIGHT before its initial use?
    • Yes; that will condition the wood and make sure it's clean. However, it's not essential - so if you have your soy milk all ready to strain and you forgot to season the press, it will still work. The soy milk will be wrapped in muslin anyway.
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No
  • From Adam at 7/1/2012 10:41 AM
    • How long does it take to complete one block of tofu?
    • Once you have put the coagulated soy milk in the press, you can press it for as little as 20 minutes or as much as overnight, depending on how thick the coagulated milk is, and how firm you want the tofu.
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No
