This thing fit 2lbs of bottom round steak for beef jerky and it is g' dang delicious. Cooked at highest setting for a little under 4 hours. I also made banana chips, apple chips, and salt & vinegar zucchini chips all within the first week of owning.
Does the job Reasonable price Not too big Enough options beside just chopping.
This new kitchen implement made juicing tomatoes so much easier than the old hand crank strainers. Setup was easy. With the old crank jobs, we had to attach it to a board and clamp the board to the table to get decent torque applied to the handle. Then they were messy with drips and the cleanup was a mess. The Weston Tomato Strainer handled a 1/2 bushel of raw tomatoes with ease in a fraction of the time I used to crank with the old setup. It really pushes the tomatoes through at a good pace. The seeds and skins are dry so don't even think about running them through again, just add them to your compost. I suppose you could overload the unit if you constantly forced a heavy load through the machine but there is no need for that. Feed them steadily and your done in no time. The cleanup was super easy.
Great processor... does the job nicely, easy to close compared to others. Food scraper good lil add on.
