If you are an avid canner this is a must have! Your prep time for tomato sauce, apple sauce and jams will be cut in half. Some hints to maximize your produce outcome: Plum tomatoes will go through no problem but you will be cooking your sauce for days to get it thick enough. I cut my tomatoes in half, sprinkle with a little salt and roast in a 375 oven for about an hour with some basil. A lot of the juice will separate in the pan, use a slotted spoon to transfer the tomatoes to the food strainer. I save the leftover juice, mix it with a little of the pureed tomato and can for tomato juice. The roasted tomato flavor is outstanding and your cook time will be cut in half.
Peaches were a challenge for my jam until I cut them in half like the tomatoes and roasted them until soft. Firm fruits and veggies don't do well in this unit and I cook everything first..same with apples for applesauce,..just quarter them and cook in a pot until soft...DON'T add sugar at this point or it will burn. Once softened, put through the strainer, no need to peel or core, the strainer will do it for you if the fruit is soft (of course with peaches you will need to remove the pit). I find that putting my fruit through this strainer gives me a much nicer consistency to my jams and unlike when I just chop the fruit... the strained fruit remains constant and cohesive...the chopped fruit tend to float to the top and looks cheap and unappealing and must be mixed before using. I DO add the remaining juice from the fruit that I roast to my bowl with the processed fruit as without it I think the jam would be too dense. With apples, it depends...if I want apple sauce I add it, apple butter I don't add it but I do filter it and freeze it for homemade apple juice...just add water! Sometimes I notice the discarded waste seems moist and I run it through a second time...but I'm looking for every drop I can get...lol. I have had my stainer for over ten years...I use it every year from spring to fall and have never had an issue with it and it still looks and works like brand new. I like the removable window cover on top to monitor and to scrap off remaining fruit off the cone once finished.

Yes this attachment saves time and works, but poor design. Whoever designed this has never used it. The hopper is way to small, the juice comes out so high the splash factor is crazy and the waste product can easily fall into the strained product. I have been trying all kinds of bowl combinations, but I feel like with a little more thought into the design could do wonders.

Difficult to use with bowl lift mixer

By Maureen

from Connecticut

Comments about KitchenAid FVSFGA Fruit and Vegetable Strainer Set - White:

I just received mine yesterday. I wanted to strain some sugar pumpkin that I had baked. So I setup the strainer on the machine. Imagine my surprise when I couldn't fit a bowl flat on the counter under the discharge chute. The rear part of the bowl was raised since one side pf the bowl rests on the mixer base and the other on the counter to catch the pumpkin. Problem is that the base of the mixer extends into the area where the bowl needs to go to catch the strained fruit and it is not close enough to the mixer bowl to use that for the discharge. I thought that maybe I could use the pour chute under the discharge chute since it extends a small distance out from the top of the bowl edge. However, there is still too much space between the pour chute and the discharge opening. In the end I had to carefully watch the bowl as the back part was tipped up. It did start to tip over a few times when the weight of the pumpkin puree was heavier on the side nearest the chute. I did level out the pumpkin but a lot of it moved back to the low side of the bowl. I did not notice before buying this that I would have such a problem. Certainly KitchenAid has to know about this problem. with the bowl placement. Interesting to note that they advertise that all accessories work on all mixers. But I looked back at the video's to see what type of bowl they were using. It appears that all the KitchenAid demonstration ads and videos were done on the tilt head models and not the bowl lift models.

Also cleaning the cone shaped strainer is difficult. Had to brush from inside and outside with continuous rinsing of what I had just loosened. Don't know how easy it will be to use this with other fruit. In addition, the plastic parts seem very flimsy. I can almost guarantee that this plastic will break within a year or two at most. I would suggest that they provide a chute that is longer and that will discharge into the mixing bowl or another bowl resting on mixer base. The discharge chute and other parts cannot be turned in any other direction. Also this set up takes a lot of counter space since you also have to catch the waste discharge material on the opposite side and this protrudes a good distance away from the mixer. Very very disappointing.
I bought this as a package with the grinder and the rotary slicer and found that one of the grinder plates was missing.

A true time saver

By OhPhoenix

from West Portsmouth, OH

Comments about KitchenAid FVSFGA Fruit and Vegetable Strainer Set - White:

We bought this attachment about 2 or 3 months ago in the middle of canning season. In the past when my wife did tomatoes it was a matter, wash, blanch, peel, core, etc... with this attachment she washes the tomatoes, quarters and fills a pan the as she does more I start the fun part. What used to take hours now takes us minutes. Apples, she quarters
& cores the a quick cooking to soften and to the machine immediate apple sauce. works well on seedless grapes but not for the seeded or maybe they needed to be blanched. Waste had a tendency to curl back and sometimes fall in the good stuff so I took a plastic lid from a cottage cheese containes made a "X" in the center and put over the tip of the strainer now all waste goes in the waste pan and does not fall back into the good.

Waste - not for baby food

By L

from Canada

Comments about KitchenAid FVSFGA Fruit and Vegetable Strainer Set - White:

I tried to use this to make baby food. So much of the fruit was wasted. I should have peeled it myself and used a blender. This should not be advertised as a good tool to make baby food as it really is waste. I wish I never bought it.

Fruit/Vegetable Strainer Set - works great!!

By ladyluvs2cook

from Delafield, WI

Comments about KitchenAid FVSFGA Fruit and Vegetable Strainer Set - White:

I purchased this strainer set last year and used it to make plum jam and just this week, I am using it to make tomato sauce. I was AMAZED at how nicely it worked - I processed a bushel of tomatoes in less than an hour - No coring, no cooking needed! But I do recommend using Roma Tomatoes which are much better for cooking sauce. I also learned that if you add Tomato Paste to your sauce while cooking - it does thicken the sauce and it cooks up faster. Another good trick - Re-process your discarded seeds & skins 2 or 3 more times. You'd be surprised at how much more puree you'll get from that. I ended up recovering nearly 4 more cups of puree by reprocessing my discards. Much easier than boiling - and skinning!!

Relief from hand crank processor!

By lynnann50

from Sugar Camp, WI, United States

Comments about KitchenAid FVSFGA Fruit and Vegetable Strainer Set - White:

We steam juice over 20 bushels of apples from our 7 apple trees each year. We freeze the pulp and I make applesauce throughout the winter. This attachment has made the process so much easier...I wish there was a strainer that had larger holes for a courser texture to the apple sauce...With my hand grind processor, I use the "pumpkin/squash" strainer with somewhat bigger holes. KitchenAid...food for thought??? Maybe several strainers with different hole sizes?? thanks for a great product!
