This welcome time saver makes sauces and purees without having to peel and core, cutting literally hours off harvest preparation. Yet it is convenient enough that we use it for individual recipes too. The Strainer forces food through a stainless steel screen, separating the juice and pulp from the seeds, skins and stems. We love ours for preparing smooth tomato sauces and for applesauce and desserts, but it's also wonderful for baby food, creamed soups, juices and jams. Includes an apple and tomato screen and instructions booklet with many recipes.
