Using Your Tomato Press
Set the Tomato Press on a washable surface (formica, tile, etc.) and pull the lever at the base of the press downward. You can moisten the rubber base for better suction if you wish.
Place quartered, well-washed tomatoes (raw or blanched) into the hopper. You’ll need one container to catch the tomato puree and another to catch the seeds and skin. You can use the fresh puree in sauces or soups, freeze it, or process it in jars following usual canning instructions.
Cleaning and Reassembling
After you have finished processing your foods, the Tomato Press is easy to take apart and clean. Simply unscrew the handle and remove the white cylinder. To remove the blades from the cylinder, hold it firmly along the smooth surface with the threaded opening facing your palm. With your other hand, slide the blades out of the cylinder. This will also remove the cap.
If you decide to disassemble your Tomato Press for cleaning, the following instructions will help you put all of the pieces back together.
