Product Description

Harvest your favorite fruits and vegetables right into this attachment for healthy and delicious drinks and purees, baby foods and sauces.

For use with all KitchenAid household stand mixers, these parts add a strainer function to the KitchenAid food grinder accessory (which is not included). Cooks who have the food grinder will find the strainer to be a valuable addition. Like the grinder, the strainer turns many tough kitchen chores into walks in the park. It converts cooked apples and pears into sauces for preserving or immediate consumption. Freezer jams are a snap; so is fresh tomato sauce. Baby foods can be made in quantity and frozen. The strainer assembles and disassembles quickly and easily without tools, and most parts are dishwasher-safe. --Fred Brack

Customer Reviews:

  • Works great for applesauce
    I bought this product for making applesauce and it works great. No need to core the apple - just cut into pieces and cook. Very quick and easy....more info
  • The wife is happy, what more can be said
    My wife wanted to make apple sauce; she had the apples all she needed was the stainer. She purchased a cheap hand model that clamped on to the table. Many people said it worked well: it didn't for her. I bought her the vegetable strainer parts for the food grinder of our Kitchenaid. She couldn't be happier. It works great!...more info

  • Just as Advertised!
    This attachment requires the prior purchase of food grinder. Setup was intuitive, and easy. The strainer worked the first time exactly as advertised, quick and easy. The total elapsed time to make a brimming 2 quarts of applesauce, including canning water bath, was about an hour. So much faster than food mill, as you only have to chunk the fruit before cooking. I placed the mixer next to the sink, so the discarded peel ect. dropped into the sink, and silky applesauce into a bowl. I used a pyrex 1 cup measure to load the hopper, and it worked as fast as I could reload. Cleanup was easy, a second look at the sieve to make sure no skin was left behind required another rinse and poke with a tiny brush. I can't wait for next year's tomato sauce prep. Highly recommend this product....more info

  • This Vegetable Strainer is Great!
    I have used this vegetable strainer to puree tomatoes for tomato sauce. I have also used this strainer to make applesauce. It is extremely easy to use.

    For tomato sauce, I cored and quartered tomatoes and placed them in a large pot with a little water. After they were softened, I strained the tomatos. I found that I was able to get more sauce if I placed the discarded peels through the strainer a second time.

    For the apple sauce, I quartered apples and placed them in a large pot with a little water. I did not core the apples. I then placed the cooked apples through the vegetable strainer. The peels and seeds were very cleanly separated from the applesauce.

    When straining vegetables, this stainer does make a mess. But it saves me so much time that I don't mind the clean up....more info
  • KitchenAid Veggie Strainer Attachment
    Wow! What a great product. My husband and I can a fair share of tomato sauce every year. Prior to buying this attachment, we used a hand-crank vegetable strainer. It was great, but this product took a good idea and ran with it. For anyone who owns a KitchenAid Stand Mixer, this was well-worth the money. It grinds raw tomatoes to a thick sauce, disgarding the seeds and skins to a separate discharge funnel. Place two bowls under both the tomato sauce end and the skins/ seeds ends, turn on a switch and you're in business. Par-cooked apples are easily processed into scads of delicious home-made applesauce. If this one wears out, we're getting another!...more info
  • Works great
    The Fruit and Vegetable strainer is really easy to attach to the food grinder accessory and very easy to clean. I was impressed with how effective it was and how it still left some of the pulp in the juice, just the way I wanted it. I put the "waste" through a second time and got an additional amount of juice from it. It's definitely a must-have for anyone who does canning. The only negative was that it forced me to do a lot of work at shoulder level or higher, so next time I am going to have to find a lower surface, cause it wore me out!...more info
  • Great Time Saver
    I bought this to use for tomatoes since we produced so many thia year. It worked great. What use to take most of a day was cut down to 30 minutes....more info

  • 75 lbs of tomatoes in 1 hour - perfect sauce consistency
    Exceeded all my expectations. We peeled, removed vine attachment and ran 75 lbs of roma tomatoes through the processor. The end result was 2 bowels of materials 1) perfectly made tomato sauce and 2) seeds and core material. It did such a good job of processing the tomatoes I ended up using both bowels seeds and all. The sauce is amazing. The consistency is best in class restaurant style sauce (not that puree stuff you get in a can though it could easily make that if you only used the primary bucket of tomato product it makes)....more info
  • Useful Attachment!
    This is a wonderful attachment for the Kitchen Aid Mixer. My wife makes lots of tomato and apple juice and the attachment makes it so easy. I have always avoided making juice because it was so hard and time consuming....more info
  • This is the way to make canned applesauce.
    I canned eight gallons of applesauce without having to take this product apart and clean it. That is a big deal for me, what a time saver. Everything else I have used usually clogs up, and I have to stop to clean it out.
    It left all the good stuff in, and the core and seeds were discarded as dry as can be. NO WASTE! ...more info
  • Works well...
    The fruit and vegetable strainer works well for tomatoes and apples and other fruits and vegetables with larger seeds. The screen is not fine enough for raspberries. I put the berries through twice and got a lot of seeds coming through the screen. I still had to use my old hand crank food mill to seperate the seeds from the pulp. I use it on speed #4....more info
  • Major Time and Labor Saver
    I live in Southern New Hampshire, surrounded by apple orchards. Every fall my family makes a project out of canning homemade applesauce. We buy "B-grade" apples at the orchards for very little money. The result is a product of stunning quality and flavor that simply cannot be purchased commercially at any price. It is also less expensive than commercial applesauce, so we have a win-win. We usually process 3-5 bushels of apples. If you aren't familiar with these quantities, it's a LOT of apples. The KitchenAid FVSP Fruit and Vegetable Strainer takes the labor and time out of what would otherwise be a rather tiresome job. We first core and roughly slice the apples (no need to remove skins) and cook them until they are soft in a about an inch of water. We then process the cooked apples through the strainer and voila, the skins pop out the side and applesauce drains out the bottom. It could not be easier. Note this strainer is an attachment to the KitchenAid food grinder. You must have the strainer, food grinder and a KitchenAid mixer in order to have a functional strainer appliance. This strainer is the only way to go when making large quantities of applesauce. I'm sure it will also find other uses in our kitchen, too....more info
  • Applesauce wizard
    I bought this item to make applesauce during a banner year for the old heirloom apple trees on our property. This item adds on to the grinder/sausage maker attachment, which I already own and use to make venison burger and sausage. I was amazed at how well the strainer worked. Just quarter the apples, cook in a pot with some water until softened and then run them through the strainer and out comes perfect applesauce from one end and dry pulp, skin and seeds from the other. I have canned 36 quarts so far. It is very fast and feeds effortlessly. Setup and takedown and cleanup are fast and easy. It seems to be well made and durable....more info
