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.
