Benefits of Having a Tomato Squeezer in Your Restaurant/Commercial Kitchen
When it comes to making pizza or pasta, everyone knows it’s all about the sauce! That’s why many connoisseurs appreciate a restaurant or catering company equipped to whip up their sauce from scratch. One of the easiest ways to do so is with a tomato squeezer using fresh tomatoes. However, there are different types of tomato squeezers out there depending on your needs, which is why our team from Zanduco Restauration Equipment & Supplies has collected some important information for you.
Here you’ll find everything you need to know about the uses and benefits of tomato squeezers!
Tomato Squeezers & their Benefits?
Before getting behind the computer and ordering a tomato squeezer you might be wondering some more about just what you can use it to make. Well, as we mentioned above, it’s great for making tomato puree, but that’s not all you can use it for. One of the benefits of tomato squeezers is that they can also be used to make things like tomato paste, squeezing fruits like lemons and limes, and preparing juices, jams, and mashed potatoes.
Are There Any Health Benefits to Homemade Tomato Sauce?
Not only do fresh tomatoes come stocked with a host of antioxidants and other healthy vitamins, but making your own puree or tomato paste in-house helps you avoid all of those additives that often come along with canned tomatoes or premade sauces.
Often, canned tomatoes and premade sauces will have a host of added ingredients, like extra sodium, fat, and sugar, making them much less healthy and affecting their taste. When you make your sauce or paste from scratch, you can control every aspect of what goes in it, whether it be adding a little extra spice or using organic tomatoes.
Types of Tomato Squeezers
- Manual Tomato Squeezers: Manual tomato squeezers make it easy for your team to squeeze tomatoes and a range of other fruits and vegetables. They’re extremely easy to use and made to be easily dismantled and cleaned. The average price of a manual tomato squeezer ranges anywhere from $140-240 CAD.
- Automatic Tomato Squeezers: For more high-volume restaurants and commercial kitchens, investing in a reliable automatic tomato squeezer will likely be best. Most automatic squeezers are built to handle heavy operation and have an electric motor and stainless steel components to ensure the most efficient operation possible. They range from anywhere between $300-650 CAD.
