Product Description

Product Description

This versatile tool attaches right to your KitchenAid Stand Mixer and uses the power of its motor to strain and puree fruits and vegetables with total ease. The fruit and vegetable strainer uses the help of the food grinder to break down ingredients, while the strainer cone removes any peels, leaving you with finely pureed fruitsor vegetables.

Amazon.com

These two accessories, which may be used with all KitchenAid household stand mixers, turn many tough kitchen chores into walks in the park. The strainer, for example, converts cooked apples and pears into sauces for preserving or immediate consumption. Freezer jams are a snap; so is fresh tomato sauce. Baby foods can be made in quantity and frozen. The grinder is equally versatile--think chuck or turkey for fresh hamburgers; Parmesan for pasta or cheddar for quesadillas; peppers, onions, and tomatoes for salsa; apples for chunky sauce. The grinder has two plates, coarse and fine, the latter of which converts stale bread into crumbs in a jiffy. Both strainer and grinder assemble and disassemble quickly and easily without tools, and most parts are dishwasher-safe. --Fred Brack

Easy to use - makes great tomato sauce and apple sauce.

It is a plastic pusher, not solid.

This gizmo makes the shortest work of making applesauce you ever imagined. You slice the apples, cook in a large pan with a small amount of water until they are soft. Then you push the apple mush, skins, seeds, core, stems, etc. in the top of the food grinder, and out the sieve part comes pure applesauce, out the end, comes the seeds, skin and stem. It takes maybe 10 minutes to process a 16qt pot of cooked apples.

I usually get every burner on my stove going, heat the pots of apples, process the mush into sauce, then can the lot. The canning part takes the longest.

Anyway if you can apple sauce, you need this tool.

Update: I made this short video so you can see the food strainer in action, sorry it got cut short, my chip ran out of space, and I'm out of time. But you can get the gist of how easy it is to use.

PS
It should not be used for blackberries or raspberries. The seeds clog up the strainer and too much of the fruit comes out the end. I ran my tailings through twice and cracked the end of the strainer. It still works for applesauce but a replacement is expensive.

The tray on the top of the unit it very small. Yoy can only put about 1/2 cup at a time in it. I know they make an attachment you can buy for like $25-30 to give yourself a larger tray. But it should just be designed larger. We usually make about 15-20 quarts of Applesauce at a time. the larger tray is a must. The "pusher" to move food down the throat is a bad design. Should be a solid cylindar instead of a cross shape. Tends to catch food and is messy.

The end result of using it is good, but it's over priced, and could be designed a little better.

If you're only making applesauce, this is a 5-star product. If you had other uses in mind, keep reading:

I thought this would replace the need for a food mill. Not quite. This would be better if you could vary the size of the holes in the screen. I don't like it for tomato sauce; the juice was too thin. I do use it when making spinach lasagna to get all of the water out of the spinach (the spinach is really bone dry when I'm done, which was what I wanted.)

I have had this for over a year now. My main interest was in helping me prepare tomatoes for sauces and salsas utilizing tomatoes from my garden. For that purpose, its good, not great however. As other reviewers have mentioned the sauce comes out too thin and too much of the good stuff comes out with the seeds and skin and waste. What I have found works well is to still peel the tomatoes the old fashioned way, dropping a few at a time into boiling water then transfer to ice water and slip the skins off. I then quarter them and put them into the KitchenAid. The skin is what mostly clogs all the holes up I think, I do get much thicker sauce coming out of it this way. I also pass the waste part through a second time when I am done, and depending what it looks like maybe a third. This extracts just about everything you want, and leaves the skins out that would have ended up part of the sauce had you fed them through 3 times. It is a lot more time consuming still peeling skins the old way, one of the big things I wanted to do away with using this product. But it makes a better sauce this way without the skins, doesn't waste too much if you feed it back through a couple times, and still is easier than any manual method IMO. This past fall I did all my sauces this way, I canned a few batches and also experimenting with freezing in ziploc quart freezer bags also. Freezing allows you to put in a much greater range of ingredients that you couldn't in a boiling water caner since the caner needs specific recipe proven to be safe.

I haven't used it with much else yet, and will update my review when I have. The meat grinder part I haven't used since I have a separate one already, a Waring Pro, which alone cost more than this KitchenAid attachment.

I've used a food grinder and fruit/veg strainer for almost 30 years with my old Oster kitchen center, so I'm very used to the concept and application. The Kitchenaid strainer is considerably smaller and has less output than my Oster's attachment. The top feed tray and the diameter of the input hole are tiny in comparison. Whoever designed this unit did not plan on someone home-canning a large quantity of food... it is designed for an occasional pressing/straining of baby food or light duty use. This is disappointing.

You will definitely need to purchase the additional optional food tray!

As for the strainer, with common sense and care it should do very well. You just have to cook any fruit which isn't already totally soft or cooked until completely mushy. I do like the backward pour-out design of the strainer unit.

Also, the picture shows a wooden pusher; the unit now comes with a plastic pusher which doubles as a wrench for a too-tight twist holding nut. It also is molded with places for your fingers, which is nice.

I like the quality of the Kitchenaid plastic. My old Oster finally gave up after almost 30 years; the motor's still going strong but the plastic Oster attachments are broken :( Let's see how the Kitchenaid holds up after 30 years of hard use.

The Kitchenaid food grinder metal plates and blade are smaller, thinner and less well made than my old Oster's. I am slightly disappointed with the design.

Please don't think I'm unhappy with my choice of replacement for my faithful but retired Oster. It's just that I was expecting an upgrade in design because of the hype and cachet of the Kitchenaid brand.
