Product Description

Description: 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 catch basin. Absolutely perfect for smaller batches! Made in ITALY


Step 1: Wash tomatoes
Step 2: Remove the stems and slice tomatoes, cutting the slices in half would make the pressing a bit easier.
Step 3: Assemble tomato press. The newer presses I have seen are white and come with a tray to hold the pressed tomato, but an 8x8 pan works well if you have a press like mine. A small or medium sized bowl will work well for the seeds/skins.
Step 4: Time to press! As you can see the seeds/skin are on the right side of the picture and the pulp/juice is on the left. If you have a partner in crime, they can feed the press more tomatoes while you turn the handle but you can easily do it yourself.
Step 5: Bag juice/pulp. I usually pour the juice/pulp from the 8x8 pan into a liquid measuring bowl with a spout. If you are pressing by yourself you may want to shove the freezer bag into a tall glass and turn the edges under to hold it in place, this holds the bag for you so you can begin to fill it with the juice/pulp. I fill the bags to about 2/3 full. Then carefully close and try to get out any air from bag.
Step 6: Into the freezer! Lay flat for easy storage.

I really do love the results. The taste of fresh summer tomatoes in the middle of winter is absolutely divine! I use two bags to make one batch of sauce for a pizza. Just simmer for a good long time, adding garlic, fresh basil, oregano, salt, pepper and mushrooms, olives etc. as desired. Tomatoes are mostly water, so it will take time to boil down, if you are short on time you can add tomato paste to thicken it, but I think for the freshest taste all it needs is time. Hope you find a press of your own, you won't be disappointed!-Kim
