We started with 5 pounds and 1 ounce of washed paste tomatoes (Super San Marzano) which were cut in half lengthwise. Small whole tomatoes can also be used. When done, we had 4 pounds 4 ounces of sauce and 7.1 ounces of skins and seeds that were not used. This translated into 8 cups of sauce before being cooked down.
This press is a great buy and we sell it here in our Amazon General Store.
The Velox Tomato Press removes seeds and peelings from tomatoes, leaving you with only the finest puree. The tomato Press can also puree other fruits and vegetables through its durable stainless steel screen. The vacuum pressure base with lever holds firmly to your counter top with over 220 pounds of holding power and is made of natural rubber that is designed to resist age. This unit completely disassembles for easy cleaning and is dishwasher safe. It is made of a non toxic polypropylene that never stains, and comes complete with a matching bowl.
