just keeps chugging.

grasswhacker 7/24/2019

i think we got this two weeks ago but haven't used it until today.we are canning roma tomatoes and this thing really does a good job,what i did was run the tomatoes through the strainer three times to get more juice out of the tomatoes,but i wouldn't try four times like i did - you might say it got a little constipated- by that i mean what was left was so dry that i had to take it apart and clean the screen to get more tomatoes through it,but otherwise it worked great.

It breaks

Harrie1 7/17/2019

I have had this product and used it many times over the years. Last year I was using it on muscadines and the seeds plugged the hole that discharges the waste. Before I could turn it off the plastic where it connects to the mixer shattered into 4 pieces. I contacted Kitchen Aide about just a replacement part that attached to the mixer and was told I had to purchase everything, not just that part. I told them I could not afford a whole new piece and only needed the plastic part, not the internal parts. Still was told buy all of it. I then told them forget it, I would just JB Weld it back together like my dad did with items that broke. Well now it is back working thanks to JB Weld holding it back together and some zip ties for reinforcement. Never under estimate an ole lady that has an idea of how to fix things. Sometime we are pretty smart for our age. They need to be made out of metal, not plastic.

Plastic in the tomato gravy

HubbyInTrouble 8/25/2018

I brought this set for my wife so that she could make gravy with the tomatoes from our garden. Well the whole batch is full of white plastic pieces. We wasted a bushel of tomatoes and several hours of work. Not to mention a very upset wife.

Wishing for more cones with different hole sizes

CatWS12 8/24/2018

This is great for tomato juice but I feel like a lot of pulp is unnecessarily discarded for sauce. With a food mill, the multiple size screens offer a coarser and finer grinds and that would be a terrific option for different fruits/veggies/uses. Using the hopper extender, I didn't have a problem with volume, setting the mixing bowl directly in front of the stand caught all the sauce/juice and I just used a small measuring cup for waste at the end. Definitely easier on the hands and arms than cranking a mill, so hoping for other size screen options in the future!

This is great for making tomato sauce, however I wish that the reservoir on top was bigger so you didn't have to pay constant attention to refill it. It makes multitasking difficult.

Tossing my Foley Food Mill!

Grandmom05 10/22/2017

Just received my fruit/vegetable strainer attachment and used it to make applesauce. I have always used a food mill for this but decided to purchase this attachment for my mixer after my son, who is a chef and owner of a catering company recommended I buy one. I was a little wary of doing this since I am very old school when it comes to my kitchen applications. I can't tell you how pleased I am with this attachment. The whole process took very little time and the end product was the best I have ever mad My only wish is that the hopper itself was a little bit bigger. Other than that, I love this attachment and will be using it again and again. Can't wait to try out the other attachments as well. If my children are reading this review, I would love some additional ones for Christmas!

Best kitchenaid attachment ever!!

9/13/2017

Big gardeners and love to can homemade tomatoe sauce with homegrown produce. This attachment is a god send. Does an absolutely awesome job in separating the skin and seeds from the juice and pulp. Anyone who has done this the old fashion way with a hand crank strainer will appreciate the ease of using the kitchenaid attachment! This recommendation is also the opinion of my siblings who also have purchased and use for making tomatoe juice. Highly recommend!

BIG Disappointment

8/30/2017

I admire Kitchenaid for the quality it has brought towork in the kitchen. I have bought and used with great pleasure numerous standmixers, blenders, attachments, etc. So, I received my fruit/vegetable strainer set today. i tried to puree apples. BIG DISAPPOINTMENT:(( Design is very confusing. You either need 2 person to hold or, you have to mess up your kitchen. Cleaning the cone took me soo long, I even wanted to throw it in the bin. Today I keep it since I paid big money, but never never never will use again. Big NO.

great invention.

6/22/2017

I use this attachment to make homemade tomato soup. Saves so much time straining by hand and it gets a lot more juice. Also the meat grinding attachment is great for grinding eggs for eggsalad, ham or bolgna to make sandwich spread, and use it every Thanksgiving to grind my onions, celery and gizzards for dressing. Absolutely love it.

What a time saver!

msdldavies 12/24/2016

I can (process) 3 large boxes of Roma tomatoes every fall to make my own homemade spaghetti sauce. I have to say, before I purchased this attachment, I would spend literally HOURS boiling, peeling, coring and seeding the tomatoes and that was even before I did the canning. It was probably a 24 hour process, literally, just to prep them. Now, it takes seriously about 3 hours to prep with this attachment, it does all the work, all I have to do is quarter the tomatoes. I also made applesauce for the first time this fall using a bushel. I cooked the apples, seeds, core and skin (just quartered them) and then ran them through the fruit strainer and it removed everything and I was left with a delicious batch of applesauce. Would highly recommend this attachment. For those that complain about making baby food, I wonder if they were cooking the baby food prior to processing through the attachment?

Bring back the sieve/colander

11/18/2016

I do not have this attachment but inherited the older sieve/colander attachment from my mother that you discontinued in the '80's. It does what this does it sounds like much better. I can make massive quantities of applesauce quickly. It's like a hand-crank food mill but attaches to the kitchenaid. I love it and my kids borrow it. I've done berries and tomatoes on it. Please bring it back!

1987 K5SS

10/3/2016

I bought a K5SS in 1987 with all the attachments. Since 1990 I have used the fruit strainer to separate the liquid and pulp from the skin and seeds on about 90 to 120 gallons of hot sauce per year. I am getting ready to order another fruit strainer set, my 3rd. It would be really nice to be able to special order parts of the strainer assembly, I have only used the metal meat cutters twice. A couple of observations the material used is of the highest quality, the design however could use some updating. The hopper size is way too small for all but the smallest jobs. This is my biggest beef as I usually process 5 to 15 gallons at a time. It would also be nice to have the option of ordering different size screens(available from other makers) to fit around the auger. I am going to get my machine serviced this year for the first time. Thanks for a great product. I use a Kitchen Aide Food Processor to grind the chiles before they go into the barrels Gary.

Strainer Attachment

9/19/2016

Love the strainer attachment for doing tomato's and peaches for peach jam. I would LOVE it if you would come out with BERRY SCREEN attachment as we make massive amounts of seedless Black Raspberry and Red Raspberry jam. We have to use Victorio handcrank strainer that takes forever.

has issues

9/18/2016

Have had this for two years. It does a good job of straining... but design has some big flaws. Bowl does not fit under output properly. Base of the stand is in the way. Because of this the waste falls into your bowl and I need to use a smaller bowl and place it on something to raise it higher so it does not splash all over the place. Even then the waste can fall into the processed sauce. Also it is easy to bump it and knock the discharge attachment. As no instructions on any way to lock it into place I have not figured out a way to fix this problem. FIX IT Love the mixer hate this attatchment

Great for tomato season

8/31/2016

I've now been using this for a few years to strain some of my tomato crop. Before this I had a Squeezo Strainer with a hand crank. It was a real chore with the squeezo. Eventually I hooked up my electric drill and stripped the crank. This has made the job much easier, faster and more fun. This year I have a bumper crop and would never have been able to process this many tomatoes with the hand crank. You do need to find a way to keep the peels and seeds from falling into the sauce. I stand a cutting board in between the bowl and a container to catch the peels. I've made a few gallons of sauce so far.

It's Okay

8/23/2016

If you're planning on processing low volumes of food through this I'm sure it would work well. The problem I have with it is the attachment has several limitations that prevent it from being effective on large volumes. One is a hopper size, you really can only fit one or two quartered tomatoes on it at a time. Another is the throat size on the hopper. You really have to be sure to cut your tomatoes into small pieces. Another problem I have with it is with the ease-of-use. The hopper itself ends up being directly over top of the juice bowl which can result in unprocessed food falling into your sauce. This isn't so bad on the first pass but can be a pain when you're rerunning the skins. There are also space problems with everything. The juice and discard bowls are jammed up against one another which also bumps against the mixer itself. I was extremely excited to get away for my hand-cranked food strainer and sauce maker as I prepared to put 4 bushels through my new kitchen aide attachment this weekend. In the end though I ended up going back to my manual crank after the first bushel. While it was a pain to crank I could do more volume in less time.

Difficult to use with bowl lift mixer

1/6/2016

I just received mine yesterday. I wanted to strain some sugar pumpkin that I had baked. So I setup the strainer on the machine. Imagine my surprise when I couldn't fit a bowl flat on the counter under the discharge chute. The rear part of the bowl was raised since one side pf the bowl rests on the mixer base and the other on the counter to catch the pumpkin. Problem is that the base of the mixer extends into the area where the bowl needs to go to catch the strained fruit and it is not close enough to the mixer bowl to use that for the discharge. I thought that maybe I could use the pour chute under the discharge chute since it extends a small distance out from the top of the bowl edge. However, there is still too much space between the pour chute and the discharge opening. In the end I had to carefully watch the bowl as the back part was tipped up. It did start to tip over a few times when the weight of the pumpkin puree was heavier on the side nearest the chute. I did level out the pumpkin but a lot of it moved back to the low side of the bowl. I did not notice before buying this that I would have such a problem. Certainly KitchenAid has to know about this problem. with the bowl placement. Interesting to note that they advertise that all accessories work on all mixers. But I looked back at the video's to see what type of bowl they were using. It appears that all the KitchenAid demonstration ads and videos were done on the tilt head models and not the bowl lift models. Also cleaning the cone shaped strainer is difficult. Had to brush from inside and outside with continuous rinsing of what I had just loosened. Don't know how easy it will be to use this with other fruit. In addition, the plastic parts seem very flimsy. I can almost guarantee that this plastic will break within a year or two at most. I would suggest that they provide a chute that is longer and that will discharge into the mixing bowl or another bowl resting on mixer base. The discharge chute and other parts cannot be turned in any other direction. Also this set up takes a lot of counter space since you also have to catch the waste discharge material on the opposite side and this protrudes a good distance away from the mixer. Very very disappointing. I bought this as a package with the grinder and the rotary slicer and found that one of the grinder plates was missing.

A true time saver

10/18/2015

We bought this attachment about 2 or 3 months ago in the middle of canning season. In the past when my wife did tomatoes it was a matter, wash, blanch, peel, core, etc... with this attachment she washes the tomatoes, quarters and fills a pan the as she does more I start the fun part. What used to take hours now takes us minutes. Apples, she quarters & cores the a quick cooking to soften and to the machine immediate apple sauce. works well on seedless grapes but not for the seeded or maybe they needed to be blanched. Waste had a tendency to curl back and sometimes fall in the good stuff so I took a plastic lid from a cottage cheese containes made a "X" in the center and put over the tip of the strainer now all waste goes in the waste pan and does not fall back into the good.

Waste - not for baby food

8/15/2015

I tried to use this to make baby food. So much of the fruit was wasted. I should have peeled it myself and used a blender. This should not be advertised as a good tool to make baby food as it really is waste. I wish I never bought it.

Messy!

Rmhn 9/9/2014

Yes this attachment saves time and works, but poor design. Whoever designed this has never used it. The hopper is way to small, the juice comes out so high the splash factor is crazy and the waste product can easily fall into the strained product. I have been trying all kinds of bowl combinations, but I feel like with a little more thought into the design could do wonders.

Fruit/Vegetable Strainer Set - works great!!

ladyluvs2cook 8/25/2014

I purchased this strainer set last year and used it to make plum jam and just this week, I am using it to make tomato sauce. I was AMAZED at how nicely it worked - I processed a bushel of tomatoes in less than an hour - No coring, no cooking needed! But I do recommend using Roma Tomatoes which are much better for cooking sauce. I also learned that if you add Tomato Paste to your sauce while cooking - it does thicken the sauce and it cooks up faster. Another good trick - Re-process your discarded seeds & skins 2 or 3 more times. You'd be surprised at how much more puree you'll get from that. I ended up recovering nearly 4 more cups of puree by reprocessing my discards. Much easier than boiling - and skinning!!

Relief from hand crank processor!

lynnann50 5/18/2014

We steam juice over 20 bushels of apples from our 7 apple trees each year. We freeze the pulp and I make applesauce throughout the winter. This attachment has made the process so much easier...I wish there was a strainer that had larger holes for a courser texture to the apple sauce...With my hand grind processor, I use the "pumpkin/squash" strainer with somewhat bigger holes. KitchenAid...food for thought??? Maybe several strainers with different hole sizes?? thanks for a great product!

A must for canners!

rparrny 12/16/2013

If you are an avid canner this is a must have! Your prep time for tomato sauce, apple sauce and jams will be cut in half. Some hints to maximize your produce outcome: Plum tomatoes will go through no problem but you will be cooking your sauce for days to get it thick enough. I cut my tomatoes in half, sprinkle with a little salt and roast in a 375 oven for about an hour with some basil. A lot of the juice will separate in the pan, use a slotted spoon to transfer the tomatoes to the food strainer. I save the leftover juice, mix it with a little of the pureed tomato and can for tomato juice. The roasted tomato flavor is outstanding and your cook time will be cut in half. Peaches were a challenge for my jam until I cut them in half like the tomatoes and roasted them until soft. Firm fruits and veggies don't do well in this unit and I cook everything first..same with apples for applesauce,..just quarter them and cook in a pot until soft...DON'T add sugar at this point or it will burn. Once softened, put through the strainer, no need to peel or core, the strainer will do it for you if the fruit is soft (of course with peaches you will need to remove the pit). I find that putting my fruit through this strainer gives me a much nicer consistency to my jams and unlike when I just chop the fruit... the strained fruit remains constant and cohesive...the chopped fruit tend to float to the top and looks cheap and unappealing and must be mixed before using. I DO add the remaining juice from the fruit that I roast to my bowl with the processed fruit as without it I think the jam would be too dense. With apples, it depends...if I want apple sauce I add it, apple butter I don't add it but I do filter it and freeze it for homemade apple juice...just add water! Sometimes I notice the discarded waste seems moist and I run it through a second time...but I'm looking for every drop I can get...lol. I have had my stainer for over ten years...I use it every year from spring to fall and have never had an issue with it and it still looks and works like brand new. I like the removable window cover on top to monitor and to scrap off remaining fruit off the cone once finished.
