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.

    That seems super handy! It takes up a lot more space than my food mill, but maybe it’s easier to use.

    Crushed tomatoes are our winter mainstay… But I’d love to try more puree with tool like this!

    Daryl Shawn says:

    Tomato jam is a new favorite, but usually quartered tomatoes is what fills up the pantry. If I had this, though, I’d be saucing (and apples too!).

    Marshall says:

    I love to make apple sauce, but I usually just dice and cook to death in the crock pot then work over with a potato masher. This tool would really simplify that process!

    Debbie Topping says:

    As attached as I am to my Mom’s old hand-crank food mill, this would make putting up quantities of tomatoes and apples much less daunting.

    mlaiuppa says:

    Oh! Oh! I so want this. I’ve been surfing amazon on and off for years looking at these, trying to decide which is the best model. I have a hand mill that I really love (I can take it entirely apart for cleaning and it can go in the dish washer) but still, it is a bit of a pain. An electric one? Oh, I’d be canning everything in sight.

    Christine Sapp says:

    This is exactly what I need. I usually can whole tomatoes.

    Our tomatoes are just beginning to ripen, so I will be in the market for such a gadget. This is fancier than anything I was hoping to get.

    I like to roast the tomatoes, onions, peppers and garlic then I use a food processor to sauce it up, I’d love to try this tomato strainer and see how it works.

    My first favorite way is quartered followed pretty closely by a smoked sweet paprika tomato jam. Tomatoes are just barely starting to come in for me and I’m pretty excited!!

    Just the push I need to make another batch of tomato jam.
    Does the widget work? I couldn’t tell if my entry truly was submitted.
    Fingers crossed.

    I mostly stick with making jams, but I would like to branch out. Do you have a recipe for pureed tomatoes?

  33. 133
    Patricia D. says:

    Tomatoes, applesauce and hotsauce.

    nancy pepper says:

    Without this nifty tool I often just wash tomatoes and throw them in a ziploc bag in the freezer. I then use them in chili or marinara sauce, BUT I have to pick out the skins!

    Mary says:

    I love Food in Jars recipe for tomato chutney. There are so many things to eat it with.

    Jeffrey says:

    I like crushed tomatoes canned with a couple of cloves of garlic and a few basil leaves.

    Angel says:

    I usually can pureed and crushed 🍅. I squeeze a lot through my fingers so I can say this would help with the larger batches lol. Thanks for the give away.

    This looks a lot like my kitchen aide attachment but with out the bulk of hulling out the kitchen aide.

    Gail E says:

    Definitely could have used this today! I spent a good portion of the day using my hand mill to make roasted marinara sauce!

  49. 149
    Jeanette says:

    This would make a great addition to my canning season. I always look forward to tomato season and the farms where we can self pick freah organics to take home and can. I do whole, quarters, diced, sauces and the juice. This would make a great consistency for my shashuka and sauce recipes rather than the process I use now.

    I’ve canned the Food In Jars fresh tomato sauce the past few years and it’s been the nicest treat all winter long!
