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. Don't know if that's because it's old, or it's the nature of the beast. I DO NOT CARE. The screen is a bit of a pain to clean. I DO NOT CARE. This thing is so much faster and so much better than doing it all by hand, these small annoyances are nothing. We also did 100 pounds of Concord grapes for juice with this, and it was awesome. I'm here to buy my own so I can return the one I'm using.
Oh, just save yourself the aggravation and buy the accessory pack while you're here. Once you start using it for something like tomatoes, you'll look around and want to do grapes, or salsa, or pumpkin... better get those accessories now.
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.
Within the first two uses of the Victorio, the red plunger (that pushes the food into the funnel) completely compressed in on itself-due to the quality of the plastic and/or hollow inside of the plunger. Also, the rubber ring that helps seal the grinder was too large for the opening and ended up bending and stretching more because it didn't fit properly into the opening. This improper fitting also caused the food strainer to lock up at times are make an squealing noise.
We contacted the company within that week-15 days after receiving the product- and they were very helpful in sending out a replacement parts-free of charge. The replacement parts were delivered in under 3 days and so far things seem to be working better. The ring still is a bit larger then the opening and the plunger seems identical to the one it replaced, but we haven't had any further issues. It may have just been a faulty set we initially received.
My concerns: It's not as sturdily made as it could be - there was a lot of deflection at the top when cranking the handle while doing my tomatoes - makes me wonder what its life expectancy will be; the plastic spiral inside that pushes the product through and against the strainer does not fit all the way back inside the body - which means you have to nudge some of your product into the "screw" to get it through the strainer; the handle should have some sort of 'snap' mechanism to keep it in place - it kept falling out on me.
I would recommend this product - just don't expect it to be of commercial grade construction.
