It took me a little while to set it up and it needs to be on a really smooth surface to grip on to it to prevent moving around. Still not sure if I set it up correctly, however it did the job and it separated the skin and pips well. Bit of a job to clean!

Pop the tomatoes in the top, turn the handle, and it will separate the tomato pulp (passata), from the skin and the seeds. A must in every Italian kitchen. Bottle the passata and then use for pasta, pizza, sauces, ketchup, soups etc.
You can Choose between two sizes:
- Passata Machine Velox £32.99
- Passata Machine "Large" £39.99
Works well on both cooked and fresh tomatoes. I do put the pulp through several times. Cleaning is easy, but did not realise in the beginning that the Pusher could be taken apart. Some more cleaning instructions would be helpful. It is advisable to cut up tomatoes, then it is easier to get the pulp out.
Really pleased. Prompt delivery. Used it loads to process tomatoes from the garden. Works a treat.
This little machine is the business! I'm very impressed by it's simple yet rugged and easy to clean design and how much suction it gets onto the worktop. It's a dream to use and easy to dismantle for cleaning. I found that putting the skins and seeds back through the hopper at least twice yields a lot more juice. I can't wait for my main crop of San Marzano to ripen, the results should be great.
