KitchenAid Fruit/Vegetable Strainer & Grinder Accessory for Stand Mixer FVAFGA

Not perfect and easy to use


We have the Kitchen Aid Vegetable Strainer and Grinder Accessory Set for our Kitchen Aid stand mixer. We especially use it to make salads. First of all, it is not a perfect strainer like you expect. Sometimes, it gets clogged, and salads do not look fresh and alive. Also, this year, I started to use it to make sausages by using the grinder and the other sausage maker part. I highly recommend the grinder and sausage maker, but not the vegetable strainer. Because, this mixer attachment did not do a great job. Also, when I use it to prepare a salad, I do put the every ingredient back through the strainer and this attachment squeezed their juices. Thus, it appears a dead salad. It seems to help, but not exactly. I am also not happier with this product, because it is hard to clean and it is very hard to remove parts. Due to the reasons I have told above, I really do not recommend it.



Kitchen Aide Fruit strainer and grinder is very handy


I got my attachments for my Kitchen Aid at an auction. have looked at them in the stores but always thought they were high. Now i have one and love it. easy to clean and use. Just attach it and do your thing. clean up was a sinch. Need to buy more attachments. Very easy to connect and use. Kids like to help to. Make sure you have your fruits and vegetables ready and cut small enough to fit. It attaches very easily and is dishwasher safe. i wuld recommend this and other attachemnts if you own a Kitchen aid mixer. My husband wants the meat grinder one or the pasta one, they are pretty cool how they just attach to your machine and you just go on, instead of 10 machines sitting around.

Fruit and Veggie strainer , no more coring or peeling apples .


With the onset of a disability, I was no longer able to do a number of things that required strength or motor skills. So making my own applesauce was among the many things I could not due anymore. That is until I found this attachment for my Kitchen Aid Artisan mixer. Now no more peeling. I cannot peel fruit or veggies anymore. No more coring. You just take the apples cut in half or quarters boil until soft [which doesn't take long] and immediately run it through the mixer with this attachment on. I do sometimes add some sugar in as it comes out just to sweeten a little or red hots for the grandkids in the holiday. Takes all of 3 minutes for a couple of pints of apple sauce minus the boiling time. The peels and seeds stems whatever comes out the garbage end. This attachment has allowed me to make fresh tomato sauce from tomatoes. I use it for pizza sauce most of the time. Clean up of the cone attachment with the holes can be a pain but I found the Oxo fruit and veggie cleaning scrub brush to make this a pretty easy job. I tried a bottle brush and it didn't work so well. Trick is to do it when the bits caught in holes are still moist not later when all dried and stuck on. This attachment is pricey as all Kitchen Aid mixer attachments are. And you do need to have the food grinder to work in conjunction with this one. This mixer and this attachment are a blessing to me.

KitchenAid Fruit/Vegetable Strainer/Grinder is great!


We use the KitchenAid Fruit/Vegetable Strainer and Grinder Accessory Set for our KitchenAid stand mixer several times every summer/harvest season.  We use it to make about forty quarts of tomato juice and forty quarts of applesauce for home canning.  Also, this year, I used it to strain cooked pumpkin from our jack-o-lanterns to make pureed pumpkin for pies, muffins, and desserts.  Because of the high water content in jack-o-lantern-type pumpkins, I had to strain the pureed mixture through a towel in order to use it in regular recipes.  However, this mixer attachment did a great job of removing the stringy stuff from the pumpkin puree.  Also, when I can applesauce or tomato juice, I do put the peelings/seeds back through the strainer a second time.  It helps to thicken the sauce.  After many years of using a hand-crank strainer, I couldn't be happier with this product.  I highly recommend it! P.S.  There is a larger food tray that you can purchase if the one that comes with the product is too small.  I found the larger one is much more practical.

fruit and veggie strainer makes canning a breeze


I purchased this item to assist with my canning projects. I have used it to make raspberry puree for jam, tomato puree for sauce/past, and applesauce. I have also tried with cooked pumpkin for pie, and it makes great mashed potatoes (its like using a potato ricer). I love this attachement, and don't know what i would do without it. It is much less work that a hand crank food mill. The only down fall is it doesn't have the option of different size screens, and as a result it cannot handle certain concord grapes. I also had some problems with the raspberry seeds getting stuck in the holes, but with some consistant scrubbing i was able to get it clean. I would highly recomend from anyone who cans fruit and veggies or makes lots of things from scratch!

This KitchenAid attachment pays for itself


Ever wanted to make your own tomato sauce?  How about apple sauce?  Baby food?  This strainer does all that and more!   We have easily paid for this attachment simply in being able to keep food from going to waste. How many times do you end up with more garden or farmer's market produce than you can eat before it goes bad? We use this strainer to make quick and easy sauces and jams.  I use this at least once a week during the fall for fresh apple and pear sauce as well! I love that nearly all the pieces can go in the dishwasher, which makes cleanup a breeze.  Making sauces and preserves with an old fashioned strainer was not only exhausting (cranking the machine by hand for hours), but then you had to clean all the parts by hand, making the process that much longer. Now it is totally worth it to make even a small batch of apple sauce because the machine does most of the work. The one and only issue I have with this attachment is that the food tray is very small.  You have to add food pretty much a cup at a time.  I believe there is another food tray that can be purchased to add to this attachment, but I wish it was included in the original.

Makes great spaghetti sauce


The fruit and vegatable strainer attaches to your kitchen aid stand alone mixer. We use this attachement to make our homemade spaghetti sauce. We are avid home gardeners and perserve all our produce. To make our sause you take to raw tomatoes cut them into quarters and feed them into the fruit and vegatable strainer. Using the wooden plunger that comes with it you push the tomatoes through. The seeds and skin come out one end and the sause comes out the other. We make our own sauce every year and could not do it without this attachment. The tomaotes are all squeesed and ready to cook on the stove top making your house smell yummy. This attachement can also be used to make juices out of you favorite fruits and vegatables. Buy this attachment and get going on some home made sauces and juice. The pieces are diswasher safe which makes clean up a breeze. Hope you enjoy it as much as I have for the past 5 years.
