  • Incredibly Accurate Measurement
  • Fantastic For Seasoned Users


  • Whilst it is easy to use, beginners may be put off by the degree of control and slight learning curve when compared to more compact presses


Many modern heat and rosin press manufacturers have a habit of almost 'dumbing down' their presses, to appeal to casual users and a market that wants their results, fast.

We admire the Rosin Tech Twist because it's unapologetically not the best for beginners, and is incredibly accurate for those who want to spend the time to get to know the machine. This doesn't however mean that beginners can not use the machine... in fact, it's quite the opposite. But please bare in mind that this press is not a one use and leave kind of machine...

Highly recommended for users of previous presses who want to step their game up.

First impression

I got the RTP Manual Twist because I knew that manual presses are the best option if you want to press rosin material in your home or a personal setting. After using it for a couple of months, it hasn’t let me down not even once. The rosin press is well-made, and the plates are very well-constructed. The cannabis oil will not drip from the plates, and they can also be cleaned easily. The machine’s dual heating plates delivered strong yields and enough pressure. I was able to achieve more than 5,000 LBs of pressure while using this particular press. The plates are perfect for sift and kief as well and you should use high pressure when you are pressing these materials.

The custom designed heat presses impressed me because they are made of 100% aluminum, and this material qualifies for food-grade manufacturing and processing when you use adequate parchment paper. I recommend you make sure that the parchment paper you purchase is made in the US and that it’s also FDA approved for direct human food contact. Another thing I liked was the fact that the package included the stainless steel table for mounting the rosin press on it for more comfortable use. The table is really sturdy, and it offers enough surface for my rosin production. All I had to do was to screw the two bolts into the bottom of the machine to be able to fasten the rosin press to the table.

The manual that comes included along this rosin press turned out to be extremely useful because it contains all the necessary information and images to help you get started. I used rosin presses before, and I already know how they work, but this manual will help any beginner get the hang of this manual rosin press. Overall. It was effortless to use, and the final product was always satisfying for my needs. As I said, I worked with other rosin presses as well, and this model is able to compete with any of them thanks to its features and to the high-quality rosin that you can make with it. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to make rosin in their own home.
