This is the best thing in the kitchen for home processing of fruits and vegetables. Bought it for tomatoes to make sauce and juice, but after reading booklet found out other uses such as raspberry juice (we use for homemade ice cream) I used to strain the berries through cheese cloth and clean pantyhose to get out seeds, but with this not only do i get clean juice but more of it as you can reprocess the "waste" several times. I would highly recommend this item. Save yourself the trouble and just buy the extra screens when you purchase the base kit.

I promised someone I'd come back and review the model 250 when I got mine. Here's the update--it works just as well as the old model. The table clamp is better, but the way the screen attaches is worse, since you have to grab onto it to take it apart now. It leaks just as the old model did, but a little less. All in all though, it works like a charm and turns out a beautiful job with little work. The review below still stands for the newer model.

I can a LOT of tomatoes. This year I did 30-50 pounds a week, all summer. My old process: wash tomatoes. Cut slits in the bottom of tomatoes. Dunk tomatoes in boiling water. Once the skins split, dunk in ice water. Peel the tomatoes. Cut out the core. Cut off green shoulders. Cut off bad bits. Put tomato in saucepan. Crust tomatoes with potato masher. Cook down the tomatoes, process in water bath canner. This takes ALL DAY.

Then a friend took pity on me and loaned me her Victorio Strainer. It's at least 30 years old, probably older and still in great shape. The first time I used it, it was like the heavens had opened and angels began to sing. Here's my new process: Wash tomatoes. Cut off bad bits. Cut tomato in half or quarters. Run through the strainer. Cook down and process. DONE. The resulting puree is gorgeous and seed and peel free. I can use tomatoes with blossom end rot--just cut that bit off. I can use all my cherry tomatoes that I could never preserve before. There is almost no waste--after you run the tomatoes through once, dump all the peels and cores back in and run them again. You'll be shocked at how much more juice and pulp comes out. The resulting waste is almost dry. I had a gallon of waste from 50 pounds of tomatoes. This thing is completely amazing.

It does leak a bit.

My wife has used one of these for many years for all kinds of food preparation. Key examples include canning, jams, sauces, and juices. It's a crucial component in the process and a tremendous time-saver. For several years they were very hard to find. This year we were thrilled to be able to purchase one through Amazon for a good friend who loves to "put food by". She's now another believer. If you're serious about food preservation, you need one. Its very durable as well.

One warning though: Be prepared for juice and pulp to coat a wide area of your kitchen when you use it. It's not a design flaw, its just the nature of the process. So, if you're afraid of sticky messes, don't even think about it. However, if you're willing to do a little clean up, the quality of the food you feed your family will be drammatically improved.

My Grandma, Aunts, and Mother have all used Victorio Strainers for decades and the advice I got was, "buy a Victorio". (Not sure if any of them ever owned anything different.) Some have different versions, but they all love them and faithfully use them every year!!! My Aunt and Mother have never had theirs break, and they have put a lot of 'miles' on their machines. It sure makes canning easier, because you don't have to core or peel the apples. (not sure if fruit with big pits like Prunes and Peaches need to be pitted.) Apples need to be cut in half or in quarters, but these machines sure make the process a whole lot easier!!! I've looked at other machines that do a similar process, but most are similar in cost and you still have to do more work. My sister bought one a year or so ago and loves hers! I'm dreaming of the applesauce I'm going to make, cause I'm buying one today!!!

I purchased this food strainer on sale just after canning season was over this past fall, and only today had the opportunity to get it out and try it when I found a giant lot of fabulous tomatoes at the grocery store. Seriously, how did I live without this thing? I have been attemtping to home-can tomato sauce for years, using a mortar-and-pestal (sp?) type of sieve, which worked okay but took forever and left a lot of usable tomato. This thing worked like a dream. I found it easy to put together and use, and I can't believe that an entire 22 pounds-worth of tomato skins and seeds fit into a cereal bowl after being strained through the screen - the Victorio strainer was able to separate every usable part of the tomato for the sauce. Wow!

The only reason I only gave this review four stars instead of five is because of something another reviewer mentioned: the part that fits on the counter wouldn't open wide enough to go onto my counters or my kitchen table, either - though I do suspect that mine are wider than average. I actually attached it to my stovetop by opening the oven door and used it that way, but it certainly would have been better had it opened just a liiiiitle bit wider. Still, this food strainer is AWESOME and I am SO glad I bought it.
