After a rough start with a part breaking, after several days use, the company responded IMMEDIATELY and sent me a new part within 2 days, so I could finish my gigantic load of tomatoes before they rotted on the vine! I am pleased with the machine, and with the service which was out of the ordinary. I would buy it again. I asked more from the machine than it was designed to do, in terms of workload, and the part that broke was a minor plastic nut. The company sent me a whole new driveshaft mechanism. They stand behind their products, and that is something that matters to me.
I used this most as a tomato juicer in canning season. I couldn't believe how much faster I was able to get my canning done. I would highly recommend this product to people who can.

This actually is a tomato grinder with meat grinder attachments, according to the box. Very easy to use, efficient and worked well. Would have preferred it if the strainer attachments were stainless steel like the grinder, instead of plastic, since the tomatoes very badly stained the plastic. Also, the hopper is a meat hopper, not a large tomato hopper. Good buy.
I received my "Roma" 2 weeks ago, and have just used the tomato strainer attachment to prepare 15 bushels of sliced plum tomatoes for canning (the yield was 240 mason jars of tomato sauce!). I was very pleased with the machine's overall performance*, and the motor was up to the approx. 3 hour task. Overstock's price and shipping was the best by far I could find on this item; which arrived promptly & well packaged. I would highly recommend this kitchen machine for home use. *I have yet to use the meat grinding function.
