Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Deb Fruit & Veggie strainer parts
I've had a kitchen Aid stand mixer for years with the grinder. We make our own pork sausage with it. Love it!! Will this fruit and vegetable strainer work with the grinder that I already have?

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DIYJOE Wow! What a difference, making sauce.
I've had this vegetable strainer for 2 weeks. I couldn't be happier. I processed about 65 pounds of tomatoes so far & I have not had one single glitch. It is a little unjust that KitchenAid makes you buy the meat grinder unit as well....all in all I'm just glad that I'm not using my hand crank food mill. Everything is super easy to clean, store and even put together. Oh, and my 7 year old is a big fan too.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HealthyEater Applesauce, berries, tomato sauce
I've had mine for over 10 years and have used it to make tomato sauce, apple & pear sauces, for removing seeds from blackberries, raspberries. Other than berries, I usually run the eliminated skins, etc. through a 2nd time which reduces that bulk by half again. Do NOT try to run berries through it twice as it could damage the machine.

Use this attachment for tomatoes and the shaft assembly broke in two. Can't get only this little part without buying everything. Bummer...

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Duluth Excellent machine for lots of applesauce
Overall an excellent machine for producing lots of applesauce. Note that you will need to really cook the apples down to near-mush for it to function correctly. The grinding blades are not used so they won't break the food down for you.
One note on the final applesauce product - it is a very smooth applesauce. If you like chunky applesauce, this is not the machine for you.
Only strike on value is that for the money, it's just a few plastic parts, a metal screen, and a metal shaft. Like all KitchenAid attachements, it feels overpriced to me.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by saraccc I love this attachment!
I don't know how I did without this attachment as long as I did. I used to use a juicer to make tomato juice and I would have to put the pulp it ejected through a food mill after that. Once through is all you need with this attachment. All you have left is the skin and seeds that it spits out! It's also great to process apples for applesauce! You just quarter them, put them in a pot with a little water, cook them till they're soft, then put them through the strainer!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AndythePigDog Great product
Used this to make tomato sauce and worked just fine. I noticed the internal drill part (white plastic part) is already staining though. Not a big deal as it still functions just fine, but seems like this could be changed easily by making stainless steel or even black. So far I have only used this once to can 100 pounds of tomato sauce.
