It looks like a bucket, fitted with a salad spinner.  My wife tried to use a nearly identical looking salad spinner to extract cut comb last summer, but the spin mechanism couldn't really handle the weight.  Maybe this one works better.

They call it a 2 gallon extractor, but the working capacity is aprox. 1.25 gal.   For $70, you can take a bucket and a rope and pay some kids to spin it over their heads and do a better job.

Yes it is nothing more than a bucket fitted with a salad spinner and no this one can't handle the weight of anything substantial either. If you only want to extract enough for one biscuet at a time, this "extractor" (now over $90 w/shipping) is your perfect buy. Otherwise, don't waste your time with this scam. A $14 salad spinner and a $3 bucket with a "Honey Extractor" label is all this guy is selling.
