Giveaway: Weston Deluxe Electric Tomato Strainer

Five years ago, I wrote about the Roma by Weston Brands. It was the first electric tomato strainer I’d ever encountered and it totally changed how I preserved tomatoes. I went from someone who did mostly whole, peeled tomatoes to someone who did 30 or 40 quarts of puree each season.

As much as I loved it, that original model did have some issues. The body was so light that when you pushed the tomatoes through, it would tilt precariously (a problem I remedied by perching my elbow on the body to keep it level). It also splattered badly when you pushed the tomatoes through, because there was nothing covering the screen.

I am delighted to say that Weston Brands has thoroughly redesigned their electric tomato press and this new model (the Weston Deluxe Electric Tomato Strainer) is terrific. The body is heavier and less prone to tipping. There’s a screen cover to prevent splatter. It has a 250 watt motor which flies through food. It can go in reverse if something gets stuck. And it assembles so easily.

For my unit’s maiden voyage, I used it to quickly puree applesauce (it’s still a little early to be doing tomato sauce around here). I quartered every apple in the house, heaped them in a big pot (peels and cores included), and cooked them until soft. Once I started, it took all of five minutes to mill all those apples.

If you’re looking for something to make your tomato preservation easier, I definitely recommend it! This week, I’m giving away one Weston Deluxe Electric Tomato Strainer to a lucky Food in Jars reader. I hope it transforms your tomato process as much as it did mine. The giveaway is open to US residents only. Please use the widget below to enter.

    This looks so great! I usually just can my tomatoes whole, but would love to do more sauce or just crushed tomatoes if I had an easier way to do this.

    I joined a CSA this year and have been overwhelmed by the number of tomatoes each week! Would love to process them like this. I’ve only made salsa and canned that before. Would love to preserve more tomatoes for the winter months!

    I love making tomato nectarine relish at this time of the year. I got the recipe from my moms friend who passed away several years ago. It’s incredibly delicious and it reminds me of Lois who was a funny kind woman whom we all miss.

    I’ve dehydrated tomatoes and packed in olive oil in the past. This year I’ve specifically planted tomatoes for sauce – they are still growing (fingers crossed). Thanks for reviewing this Weston food mill, I’m glad it’s been useful. Someone is going to be very lucky at the end of your giveaway.

    I’m fairly new to canning and so far my favorite way to can tomatoes is whole. From which I learned from your post on 5 ways to preserve large tomatoes. I’m hoping to try my hand a sauce and jams later this year.
    Thanks for all the informative posts and giveaway.

    Freezer tomato sauce with whatever other veggie is on it’s last legs (peppers, green beans, broccoli, onion, kale, etc). Bring to a simmer, reduce, puree, then freeze in pint size jars.

    My husband requested I make two dozen half-pint jars of your tomato jam this year. It’s amazing how many tomato based items we go through each year! Sometimes it’s hard finding the right number that will last us the whole year until tomatoes are available again. I personally enjoy using your recipe for diced tomatoes that you created for the Mrs. Wages website. Thank you for hosting this giveaway!! The electric tomato strainer would certainly cut down on a lot of processing time, which is always nice :).
