#5 Electric Tomato Strainer Machine
Here's the scenario: You're an Italian-American tomato enthusiast living in the Garden State. It's late summer, and you have more tomatoes than you know what to do with. Those nightly anonymous tomato drop-offs on the neighbors' porches and at the fire station are starting to get conspicuous! It's time to stop fooling around and take your tomato packing to the next level!
The Reber #5 Electric Tomato Strainer Machine nearly twice the size of it's cousin the Reber #3 Electric Tomato Strainer and is perfect for processing any and all kinds of tomatoes in any state (Raw, Steamed, Boiled, Fire Roasted), into delicious purees! This is a big step up in processing power from the classic #3. Maybe you're still trying to figure out just what a tomato strainer machine is? Let us paint a picture for you: Imagine a meat grinder or food mill specifically designed for tomatoes, with an added function: it separates the skins and seeds from the actual tomato flesh, while pureeing it into the perfect consistency for sauces, ketchups and the best (and freshest) Bloody Mary you've ever had!
Here's how it works: As tomatoes are fed into the hopper, they are moved down a spiral auger and pressed against the holes on the screen/cone. The auger gets progressively smaller, and the tomato continues to along the strainer holes. Only the pulp is able to exit the holes, and the seeds and skins are forced out the end of the cone into a waste bucket or even directly into your compost pile!
We've tried all the tomato strainer machines out so you don't have to. That's right. Plastic ones, Vintage Ones, Cast Iron Ones, Aluminum U.S.A. Made ones. While we're partial to U.S.A. made products, we had to throw in the towel with this one. No one makes a tomato strainer quite like the Italians, and for just a little more than some of the nicer manual models out there, you can have an electric model that'll get the job done faster for years to come! Tell you more?
Here's what you get: A 600W heavy duty electric motor with gears permanently lubricated with food grade oil. The motor is fitted to accept a beefy square driveshaft which means it won't round off or strip out like that value blender you bought at the discount store. The hopper, slash guard and collection tray are all stainless steel. The auger housing is cast iron and coated with a food grade epoxy that is resistant to corrosion and rust. The auger itself is constructed from a food grade resin for maximum durability, quiet operation and NO metal shavings or grinding. This model is capable of processing up to 300lbs of tomatoes per hour. In other words, as fast as Uncle Sal can feed them into it!
If that's not enough, come fall time you can put this machine to use making some of the freshest apple sauce out there. The included strainer cone has 1.5mm holes and is great for apples, but we also offer cones for a variety of other food projects like jams, pumpkins & squashes. Bringing the people you love together to continue a time honored food story? Now that really is amore!
