A must for canners!If you are an avid canner this is a must have! Your prep time for tomato sauce, apple sauce and jams will be cut in half. Some hints to maximize your produce outcome: Plum tomatoes will go through no problem but you will be cooking your sauce for days to get it thick enough. I cut my tomatoes in half, sprinkle with a little salt and roast in a 375 oven for about an hour with some basil. A lot of the juice will separate in the pan, use a slotted spoon to transfer the tomatoes to the food strainer. I save the leftover juice, mix it with a little of the pureed tomato and can for tomato juice. The roasted tomato flavor is outstanding and your cook time will be cut in half.
Peaches were a challenge for my jam until I cut them in half like the tomatoes and roasted them until soft. Firm fruits and veggies don't do well in this unit and I cook everything first..same with apples for applesauce,..just quarter them and cook in a pot until soft...DON'T add sugar at this point or it will burn. Once softened, put through the strainer, no need to peel or core, the strainer will do it for you if the fruit is soft (of course with peaches you will need to remove the pit). I find that putting my fruit through this strainer gives me a much nicer consistency to my jams and unlike when I just chop the fruit... the strained fruit remains constant and cohesive...the chopped fruit tend to float to the top and looks cheap and unappealing and must be mixed before using. I DO add the remaining juice from the fruit that I roast to my bowl with the processed fruit as without it I think the jam would be too dense. With apples, it depends...if I want apple sauce I add it, apple butter I don't add it but I do filter it and freeze it for homemade apple juice...just add water! Sometimes I notice the discarded waste seems moist and I run it through a second time...but I'm looking for every drop I can get...lol. I have had my stainer for over ten years...I use it every year from spring to fall and have never had an issue with it and it still looks and works like brand new. I like the removable window cover on top to monitor and to scrap off remaining fruit off the cone once finished.

Relief from hand crank processor!We steam juice over 20 bushels of apples from our 7 apple trees each year. We freeze the pulp and I make applesauce throughout the winter. This attachment has made the process so much easier...I wish there was a strainer that had larger holes for a courser texture to the apple sauce...With my hand grind processor, I use the "pumpkin/squash" strainer with somewhat bigger holes. KitchenAid...food for thought??? Maybe several strainers with different hole sizes?? thanks for a great product!

Messy!Yes this attachment saves time and works, but poor design. Whoever designed this has never used it. The hopper is way to small, the juice comes out so high the splash factor is crazy and the waste product can easily fall into the strained product. I have been trying all kinds of bowl combinations, but I feel like with a little more thought into the design could do wonders.

Fruit/Vegetable Strainer Set - works great!!I purchased this strainer set last year and used it to make plum jam and just this week, I am using it to make tomato sauce. I was AMAZED at how nicely it worked - I processed a bushel of tomatoes in less than an hour - No coring, no cooking needed! But I do recommend using Roma Tomatoes which are much better for cooking sauce. I also learned that if you add Tomato Paste to your sauce while cooking - it does thicken the sauce and it cooks up faster. Another good trick - Re-process your discarded seeds & skins 2 or 3 more times. You'd be surprised at how much more puree you'll get from that. I ended up recovering nearly 4 more cups of puree by reprocessing my discards. Much easier than boiling - and skinning!!
