How does a food strainer work?The fruits or vegetables that are being strained first placed in the hopper. The hopper holds the food and funnels it down the neck of the strainer into the spiral. The spiral is what moves the food through the strainer. The spiral is specially designed to compress the food as it moves through the screen. The screen is tapered and fits the spiral so that the sauce and juices are squeezed through the sides of the screen. The skin and seeds continue down the spiral to the end of the screen where they move through the waste spout and away from your sauce. The sauce that comes out of the screen is caught by the squirt guard which directs the fresh puree and juices strait into your canning jars or into which ever container you want. Most food strainers on the market are manual meaning you have to crank the handle to make the spiral turn. There are strainer models that are designed for the attachment of an electric motor.
A selection of screens and spirals are available so that you can strain just about anything. There are two different spirals and four screens available so you can mix the standard spiral or the grape spiral with either the apple/tomato, berry, salsa or pumpkin screens to get the perfect texture you are looking for. Strain berries, grapes, tomatoes, apples, salsa, pumpkins and squash. A food strainer is perfect for making nutritious homemade jams, jellies, sauces, juices and baby food!
