can this device be used for making tomato juice that is to separate the pulp fro juice after boiling the tomatoes
Hi. The holes in the sieve are 3mm in diameter, so I don't think it can separate the juice from the pulp. This food mill would work better for a sauce. Thanks!

I make a huge amount of krautburgers a day, and am looking for something more efficient than a collander to separate the water off the meat mixture in an expeditious manner. But I do not want to break the meat and cabbage up in really small pieces, are these mills something I need to look into or do you have another product that would work better. We cook a batch of probably 10 to 20 gallons at a time and are trying to drain the juice now with a potato masher and a collander, which isn't working well now that we're getting busier.
Hi. This food mill might not work because it would just grind the meat/cabbage mixture together into smaller, uniform pieces. I looked up some recipes on krautburgers, and I couldn't find a specific method of draining the juice out of the mixture. Besides the collander and masher, you can probably try squeezing the mixture in a tea towel/cheesecloth, or cook out the water. Another recipe said to not add water. We have a few cheesecloths on our site like item #122603. Maybe a cheesecloth used with a salad spinner might work to spin the water out. Item #157020. Thanks!
