The Oil Press by I2D

In my neck of the woods, olives, and especially artisan olive oil, are a big deal. Local olive expert tasters distinguish the differences between different types of olive oil the same way a sommelier would wine. There's even an Olive Festival in Paso Robles to celebrate this curious fruit. If I2D's Oil Press concept comes to fruition, artisan olive oil can be made closer to home than you might think.

The gadget takes the same extraction process used in commercial olive oil production facilities and breaks it down to a simple, space-conscious tool. Olives go on the round tray at the top, then descend into the grinder. From there, the pressed olive oil runs into a glass, which can be removed for use.
