Rated 5 out of 5Â by John Great for tomato season
I've now been using this for a few years to strain some of my tomato crop. Before this I had a Squeezo Strainer with a hand crank. It was a real chore with the squeezo. Eventually I hooked up my electric drill and stripped the crank. This has made the job much easier, faster and more fun. This year I have a bumper crop and would never have been able to process this many tomatoes with the hand crank. You do need to find a way to keep the peels and seeds from falling into the sauce. I stand a cutting board in between the bowl and a container to catch the peels. I've made a few gallons of sauce so far.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by BrownieD Harvesting Tomatoes has never been easier
I specifically bought this attachment to prep my bounty of tomatoes for canning. I used to do all the work by hand and it would take literally a whole night. The tomatoes came out perfect. I also took another purchasers suggestion and put the "waste" skins and seeds through a second time to squeeze out all I could. I was done start to finish in no time. I bought the package that also included the Food Grinder. Now looking forward to trying to grind my own hamburger and who knows what else.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Mrsmarv This is a must for canners
I ordered this primarily to process our garden Roma tomatoes and also local apples for sauce for canning. It is a must have. My work time, from start to finish, was cut by from 60-65%. Instead of it being a multi-step process, it's now simplified. It's easy to assemble and use and the clean-up is pretty straight forward.
I would definitely recommend it.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Dirtgirl150 A mighty grinder!!
This is the first year in a long time I attempted to make cucidada, an Italian fig cookie, reason being...the grinding of the figs!!! What a pain. I usually used a food processer, with much ado. I purchased this attachment for my kitchen aid and when I received it I never thought it would handle the job since it was plastic and looked chintzy. Boy, was I surprised! 5 pounds of figs ground PERFECTLY in less than1/2 hour, a job usually taking about 2 hours. I AM HAPPY with this attachment thus far. Looking forward to making some sausage and jelly! So, don't be fooled by its looks. Works great and cleans just as easily.
