Hello all!
I’m a new Farmgirl with a food strainer question. My hubby and I have Norpro strainer that we use when we are canning tomatoes, applesauce, etc. My question…Is the Squeezo strainer worth the investment? I have a neighbor who has one and swears by it. The jury is still out on the Norpro strainer. :)

Wish I could answer you....I got a Victorio strainer (very similar to Squeezo), but haven't gotten to use it yet. The only thing I do not like about mine is the plastic worm gear/drive. It is a vintage one and I only paid $5 for it, but still. I thought Squeezo was all stainless (?) and if so, that would be really nice. Is the Norpro like a circular one that fits over a bowl...like a ricer/strainer? I have an OXO like that.

I have a squeezo and love it. Tomatoes is all I use it for. If you have a kitchen aid stand mixer you can get that attachment for it. I use that for small batches.

I have a Weston electric strainer and love it. It sure makes quick work out of canning tomato and apple sauce. I did pumpkin purée this year for the freezer and it took no time at all.

A little rain can straighten a flower stem. A little love can change a life.

Thank you so much for your feedback, ladies!
Amanda, the Norpro we have is a hand crank strainer. Does that answer your question?
