Pretty good - works as expected

Jacob from Dayton, OH– Verified Buyer

The strainer works pretty well. We can't give it a 5/5 yet, as we've just used it a handful of times so far. No trouble so far, and we like the results. But, if you are going to be doing any large amount of canning, you still have plenty of work to do besides just running the food through the strainer. So do plan on that as you consider buying/investing in any food mill or planting an extra large garden with hopes and dreams of preserving a lot of food.

The strainer does cut down on the amount of work compared to using the Foley-type of food mill. Having the strainer mount to the counter and feed into the good bowl and the waste bowl really makes it easy. Our old Foley worked well, but you were working higher and always on top of another container, making it cumbersome. It seems that you end up making a good many more revolutions to get the food through as well. So the Victorio cuts the length of the straining step considerably.

We'd tried another mill similar to the Foley but in stainless steel (my wife was worried about the old one as she thought it was aluminum and got rid of it, but I am now thinking it may have been tinned-steel.... oh well). We got it at Bed, Bath, and Beyond, but the design and quality of that one was no good at all and gave us a poor final product and left our hands hurting. A new stainless Foley would have been a little cheaper than the Victorio and worked solidly based on our past experience. Both would have offered us similar value, but since we plan to do quite a bit of processing due to having expanded the garden size considerably (and we already did a couple bushels of apples from the orchard each year), we paid a little more for this Victorio.

So far, we are happy with it. We have only used the main screen that comes with it, although we did buy the four-piece accessory kit (we have a good crop of pumpkins we will do later in the fall). One suggestion, start with tomatoes first, something room temperature anyway. The strainer works well, but there is an occasional case of it squirting some juice out. Room temperature tomato juice is a lot less dangerous than steaming hot water from stewed apples. And it's just easier to get used to if you are not worried about temperature concerns.

Consider the space you will be using. If you don't have an over-hanging countertop, this one won't work for you. I'm glad we do have an appropriate counter, as the Roma clamp and/or suction cup just did not look as robust as the clamp on the Victorio. And this clamp has held in place well. It holds up against the uneven cranks of young kids. I have noticed with those uneven turns, though, that a bit of liquid comes out around the handle from the main area and drips to the floor. I put a towel there to not have a mess and slip hazard. The older kids and I turn it more smoothly and don't get the drip. So, I don't know if that's really an issue or not.

Another tip, if you have young children, or just as an extra measure of caution... canning days can make for a hectic kitchen. As you are running back and forth filling jars, removing hot jars from the pot, etc., remove the crank handle from the machine so you don't catch on it and end up with a mess or some hot applesauce spilled on someone or a broken jar. It slides right out, and goes right back in easily.

And when you do then use it for something hot like applesauce, just watch for squirting juices as you use the plunger. It will shoot out at the beginning of the screen and could burn someone by the bowl. And when you move the plunger up and down in the throat of the hopper, you can also send some juice shooting out. I don't count these as design flaws (I'm a mechanical engineer), and I would think that other brands also could do this. I think it's more just the nature of having a useable product. Just need to get used to it and you can eliminate the splash.

One difference, when comparing to a traditional Foley, is that clean up is a bit harder. I think you have 11 parts compared to 3 or 4 on a Foley. But again, it's a more robust tool for the job, so that is simply a trade-off to get a more powerful tool. It also takes up a little more space on your shelf as you'll likely store it in a box to hold all the pieces.

But we like it. We've done 3 or 4 batches of tomato sauce (two gallons each time) and then 2.5 bushels of apples for sauce. It even worked so well for sauce that we got ahead of ourselves. Our 14 year old son and I were cranking away and had every bowl in the house filled, and then when my wife and I started putting it in jars, we had troubles getting it all processed (but that's a good problem to have, so just remember it's only part of the process and consider your whole operation before diving in). We will try the salsa screen just for fun. It likely will be a bit of overkill just to make a fresh batch for dinner, and then have to clean it all up. And this is where a Foley might be more your style if you are not processing huge batches or a lot of batches. The value of this type of strainer over a Foley comes when you use it a lot, as set-up and clean-up time is more for this type.

But it's been good so far and great fun for all the family. We can leave it set up on the counter and work throughout the day and everyone wants a turn to crank it. If you are going to be doing a good bit of canning, I recommend going for it and getting this strainer.

Such a time saver!

Bonita from Norwich, OH– Verified Buyer

I used mine to can tomatoes this year. I have never used anything to help me process the tomatoes before. This is so much better than place the tomatoes in hot water then in ice water to peel method. It is easy to put together and the handle turns easily. The peels come through with very little left on them and dry. I had my MIL borrow it so I could see what she thought of it, as she has been canning for 40+ years, she said that it was wonderful for making sauce and saved her time too. I had bought the accessory kit with the salsa strainer and she used it as well. She said that the salsa strainer lets some tomato seeds through. She also thought that the pumpkin strainer would be very useful. I am very happy with this purchase and it removed a lot of the dread of canning tomatoes for me at least.

Very Surprised

Terry from Roanoke, VA– Verified Buyer

Didn't know what to expect from this product. Have used it once and fell in love with it. The only thing I don't like about it is the handle comes off way too easy. BUT I was using the product after a make-shift holding base was invented since nothing in my kitchen was of the size of the clamping base. Once I figure out what to make to fit the clamping base, I am hopeful the handle will not come off as easy since the product will not be moving.

What a Time Saver

Paula from Mustang, OK– Verified Buyer

I first saw the food strainer at my daughter in laws home. I saw the results in her canning products and wanted one. We ordered it on line and it was at home when I go there. I love the ease and the fact that it didn't leak all over. It was easy to clean and did a good job straining my tomatoes. It was so easy my husband took my new toy away from me. My daughter in law bragged on this product and I will say I'm glad I purchased it and I think anyone would appreciate how well it works.

Food Strainer and Sauce Maker

Dianne from Brush Prairie, WA– Verified Buyer

This works quite well. I have used it for currants and it extracts the juice well and leaves a dry pulp. It is a little difficult to put together and you do have to have a counter top with enough depth between the edge of the counter and the cabinets in order to get a tight, stable connection. I ended up going to my laundry room counter. Once together it is super and cleanup is actually pretty easy because all the parts come off and are easily washed. I like it and would recommend it.

Much better than I expected.

Susanne from Indianapolis, IN– Verified Buyer

My daughter and I made applesauce in half the time this year with this wonderful food strainer. It is very well made and easy to use. Works like a charm. There is almost no waste or mess. I am thrilled to think I never need to peel apples for hours anymore. It was delivered in one day to my front porch. It was nice to order something sight unseen and have it turn out so perfect.

Stupendous!!!

robert from mineral point, WI– Verified Buyer

For the last two years, I borrowed my parent's (15 year old) sauce maker for my garden tomatos. This year, I bought my own. What a difference! This new unit is much better designed. The Victorio has pulp and seed guards that make much less mess. The clamp mechanism is much easier to secure to my table. The stainless steel screens are great. I like it so much, I'm getting my parents one for Christmas.

No hot food allowed

Raquel from Glenwood, IL– Verified Buyer

Very simple to put together. Made straining tomatoes a snap. Didn't realize that hot food could not be processed through this strainer so recipes had to be reworked.

Pros: Simple, economical
Cons: No hot food, hard to fit to some counter tops
