I love this set!! for the professional cook or home hobbyist- these rings are of great quality and craftmanship. I love creating plates with some architecture and the rings allow me to experiment with heights and food combinations. Yes- they are expensive- but once you buy them- you'll have them for life. I highly reommend them!

These high end food rings were given as a gift - they are great for presentations of food - crab cakes, rice, potatoes - even if you make lasagna - very unique way to have food presented - much prettier!

Product was just as promised. It was a little difficult to assemble the first time, but not a problem after that. It works great for baby food and preparing other foods for canning and freezing. Recomend this purchase to others.

What seemed like an easy product to find turned out to be elusive. Overstock had several choices at reasonable prices. This set is well made and looks very well suited to use in food prep.

My 7-year old grandson and I have had a great time making applesauce with the Roma Food and Vegetable Strainer. I have used other food strainers but none was as easy to use as this one. My grandson can assemble and disassemble it by himself. He is also able to use the strainer to process the apples. It was such fun that he did the major part of making a box of apples into applesauce.

Iím new to canning and preserving. It is one of my methods to stretch my food dollars. The Roma Food Strainer made processing gallons of cinnamon applesauce painless so I had special gifts for my family members. My only criticism of the Roma Strainer is that neither the suction nor the C-clamp base was sufficient to keep the strainer attached to the counter; however, as with most things, duct tape fixed the problem. Iím sure there are appliances that process produce faster or easier, but for the price, the Roma canít be beat.

It was a toss up between buying the kitchenaid food strainer and meat grinder attachments, or the Roma Food Strainer. I was able to borrow my neighbor's Roma strainer and I made my decision right away to buy one for myself. It was so easy to set up and I couldn't believe how easy and quick it was to do a whole batch of plum tomatoes from my garden. Cleanup was just as easy! The food dish is so large. It accommodated quite a large amount of tomatoes at one time. The process was so quick and delivered a very nice looking puree. I am very happy with this product. You don't have to spend a lot of money on the electric machines. This one does the job!

We have used the pasta maker and at first we had a little trouble getting the dough through the roller. Then as we used it the secound time it went through very easily. We are happy with the machine and would recommend it as a handy machine for rolling out dough for any type of foods. The width of the machine is great. Very easy to use. A little hard to mount to a counter top.

Although I haven't used this yet, I am excited to have it. I am a gardener and I also am a cancer survivor. I want to be able to make my own tomato sauce and crushed tomatoes which I will freeze....so much better than buying canned goods from a store....no preservatives and I KNOW WHAT INGREDIENTS ARE IN MY TOMATO SAUCE!! I had read the reviews about people having difficulty putting this mill together but I found it easy to do. Product was shipped quickly!! Thank you Overstock.com!!!!

After a lot of searching (kitchen shops, restaurant supply stores, and online), this is one of the only ring mold sets I could find. I was a bit disappointed at the high cost, but after receiving the product, I was pleasantly surprised at its high quality. The rings and push plates are very sturdy and do the job well. The case is nice, too. Overall, I'd recommend this product to anyone wishing to plate perfectly round rings of food. Bon appetit!

I am pretty happy with the Roma Food Strainer. I only gave it 4 starts becuase-NO Instruction Manual! It was not terribly hard to figure out, but I had a heck of a time getting the tomato screen back off. The plastic funnel needs to be re-engineered, and I will probably not use it because I don't see it lasting very long with it's cureent design. Mercifully there is a shop on ebay that sells replacement parts for it. I ran my tomatoes through 3 times, and I'm glad I did. I got a 3rd more pulp. And nearly no seeds. Tomorrow I'll be trying the berry screen, which is exactly what I bought the machine for, to de-pit blackberries.
