It is very easy to setup and very easy to clean.

It's made my tomato canning so much easier, it separates the seeds, and skin from the tomato.

I have used this Roma Vegetable Strainer for making apple sauce twice. Previously I have used the Victorio strainer (very nice and sturdy, but no longer available) and Back to Basics (stronger than the Roma in my opinion, but not as good as the Victorio - it had a lot of parts to lose and was not rust resistant). The Roma is easy to put together and seems to be rust resistant, but is weak, flimsy, unstable, and doesn't hold on my counter well with either the suction or the clamp.

Things I like about the Roma Strainer:
* Pieces attach easily without nuts and bolts
* Seem to be rust resistant (The Back-to-Basics strainer that I bought 15 years ago had some parts that would rust)
* Plastic cone that takes the waste (seeds, core and skin) away is farther from the sauce dispenser, making it easier to have various shapes of bowls.

Things I dislike about the Roma Strainer:
* The suction cup does not hold on my smooth quartz counter-top. Nice try, but it doesn't work.
* I have a bull-nose (rounded edge) to my counter-top so the clasp doesn't work very well either - it isn't long enough to reach around the bull-nose. So, it starts wiggling fairly quickly and isn't very stable, with no way to attach it more firmly.
* The handle is much harder to turn than the old Victorio (purchased 30 years ago) or Back-to-basics (purchased 16 years ago) strainers I have previously used. As I turn the handle, the vertical support seems to wobble or bend a bit, as though it isn't very strong.
* The handle seems a bit flimsy.
* Turning the handle is stiffer with more resistance than with the other strainers I have used before. (You tire more quickly.
* I have to run the waste product through 2 x as there is a lot of good applesauce that goes out with it.

I've been using this strainer for my current cherry tomato crop (as usual, I planted way too many), and it has made short work of squishing the pulp out while separating the skins and seeds. I simply wash the tomatoes and dump them in. The only reason I give less than 5 starts is that the suction on the bottom kept releasing periodically, even when I tried sending fewer tomatoes through. I tried dampening the bottom, which helped, but it still eventually lost its grip. Also, the plastic gasket that is supposed to keep tomato guts from squeezing out the top of the screen (top as in end closest to strainer body) doesn't fit well (at least in mine), and won't stay in the machine. This doesn't seem to make much difference, however, as long as you have everything on tight.

Overall, it was a good purchase.

This is a great affordable alternative to the more pricey original, Squeezo. So easy to use my 2 year old turns the crank. I find myself looking for more things to crush in my new Roma sauce maker/juice maker. So far we have made tomato sauce and juice, apple sauce, mango sauce, and peach sauce. The kids love that they can make and eat there own treat. Plus, no added sugars and no preservatives. I wish I had this to make baby food when my kids were infants.

It is as simple as wash your fruit and veggies and drop them in. I cut them in quarters and drop them in the hopper. later I only cut them in half to test the true ability of the processing power. Not a problem for this machine. The hopper by the way is huge.

Also ordered the 4 piece accessory strainer kit and motor. Awaiting their arrival. The motor is not really needed especially if you have willing children to crank while you load the hopper. I was thinking ahead though envisioning a huge tomato/salsa garden for next year.

Bought the Roma sauce maker and 4 piece accessory kit separately which was $20.00 cheaper than the buy together offers. So do your price research and save.

Just FYI for estimates sake: it only took 4(medium) apples (baseball size) to make an entire quart of apple sauce. 8-10 small-very small roma tomatoes to make a quart of sauce. 1 mango to make a pint of sauce. and five small peaches to make a quart of sauce. I did run the pulp and skin through twice on everything. It is not necessary to so this. I was just playing to see how much I could squeeze out of each item.

The only negative thing I would have to say is watch the suction cup. At first I was awed by its suction abilities but it later lost suction twice. It works better on certain surfaces than others the smoother the better. Good on counter tops not so great on wood. How ever it does also come with the handy dandy C-clamp. So no worries.

I think the title of my review just about says it all, but I'm happy to give some specifics.

I purchased the Roma Food Strainer after reading reviews, good and bad. It appeared to be exactly what I needed, as I've spent the last 25 years processing several hundred pounds of tomatoes annually, using the long, hot method of blanching, ice bathing, peeling, and milling my San Marzano beauties. Of course, everyone who has ever canned during the summer knows that it's always the hottest days of the year when your crops ripen, and boiling pots of water are the last thing you want to be slaving over. The Roma strainer completely eliminates that step, and I couldn't be more thrilled. From garden to sink for a quick wash, an easy slice down the middle of each tomato just to make sure there are no bad spots inside; then, into the hopper, processed through, and voilà! Ready for canning or cooking!

Now, onto the strainer itself.

My biggest concern when purchasing were the comments made about the loss of suction on the base. I have used the mill for over a week now, and removed it from my counter top (granite), and reattached at least a dozen times. I've knocked on wood as many times, in hope that it will continue to function, and so far, so good. Houston, we have suction! The mill assembles and disassembles easily, and is easy enough to clean.

The only negative that I can find, and it's easily overcome, is the quality/durability of the plastic cup that attaches to the end of the strainer assembly. I'm worried that with repeated removal and reattachment that it might eventually crack, so I've opted to leave it on permanently.

A couple of tips worth re-mentioning: As others have said, run your skins back through the mill one or two times. Quick and easy. You'll be glad you did. Also, don't try to push too much through at once. This is a great product, but it's certainly not industrial.
