If you are looking for a way to squeeze out rosin from your flowers, then a rosin press is what you need. Forget about homemade solutions, like hair straighteners: you will get inconsistent results with those since they lack temperature and pressure controls that come with rosin presses. They are simple machines: two heated plates are pushed against each other, usually manually or hydraulically. This combination of heat and pressure allows the concentrate to come out of your flower.

If you are on a tight budget, don’t worry. There are a lot of valid rosin presses on the market which are also affordable. In this article, I’m going to make your life easier and present the 6 best rosin press for under $300, then I will also tell you the reasons why I chose them. After that, you will find a buying guide with some more things to consider before making a purchase.

Best Rosin Press Under $300 — Buying Guide
Below you will find some additional considerations/questions to help you get the right press for your needs.

The first thing to consider is the amount of pressure that the rosin press is able to deliver. What amount of force do you need? The higher the pressure, the higher the percentage of rosin you are going to be able to squeeze out of your material.

Plate Size
You also need to think about the plate size, since the load capacity of the press depends on it. The bigger the plates, the larger load capacity. That means you are going to be able to process more material in one sitting. This point is important if you are going to use your rosin press in more than just a casual way, so you want to reduce the number of operations to process a certain amount of material in order to optimize the total pressing time.

Are you going to carry your press around or not? If the answer is yes, then you need to carefully consider the weight and the compactness of the rosin press you want to get, especially if you need to squeeze your press inside a backpack or a suitcase. The presence of a handle to hold it might also be important.

Manual or Hydraulic
Last thing, but most important: the power output. If you are going to use your press every once in a while, a manual press is fine. If you are planning on using it more frequently, then it’s better to get a hydraulic press. A manual press can be tiring because it often requires you to manually hold the pressure onto the plates during the pressing process. Hydraulic presses usually apply pressure through a bottle jack: once they are set, they hold the pressure by themselves.


In this article, I gave you a broad range of possible choices of rosin presses under $300. I tried to think about the common user’s needs when buying a rosin press on a budget, and I hope you found the answer you needed.
