Made of heavy-duty tin, this classic tomato squeezer is used to extract juices and pulp from tomatoes. A great tool for canning, the 1.5 mm perforations in the conical tin sieve are just the right size to retain seeds and skin, while allowing crushed flesh and juices to flow through into the stainless steel collector and into a container. The stainless steel hopper will accommodate a substantial amount of tomatoes at one time and the clamp base can be used with most work surfaces. Plastic covers allow the unit to be clamped tightly while protecting worktops from damage. The body, worm and handle are made of tin and the hopper and collector are made of stainless steel. Wash all components by hand. Not dishwasher-safe.
