Go the larger one. You'll not be sorry when doing a big day and smashing a dozen boxes of tomatoes. The small unit will do it, but the bigger one will do it in style.Komodo said:So its the time of year when people go buy (or grow) a tonne of tomatos and turn them into tomato passato/sauce.
My wife and I have done this the past few years but this year mum and dad and some other friends want to join in. But I'm concerned that the old hand crank machine we use will be a pain in the arse for 150ish kgs of tomatos so I'm looking for an electric machine.
I think I want a Reber (available from foodquip/winequip). They seem to be the most common. But what size? I also plan on getting the mincer attachment.
At this stage I'm thinking the either the 1hp or the 1.5hp unit (I'm a little bit tim the tool man and more power is better than less) and the N.22 mincer. I really think 1hp is the minimum.
Has any one got one of these and do you have any of the other attachments (dough mixer, pasta extruder, cheese grater)
