I am not someone who collects a lot of gadgets, but this, my friends, is incredible! This is the Norpro Juicer and Steamer. This is by far the easiest way to make juice from grapes, pears, apples, etc. The instruction/recipe booklet even says it can be used for making tomato paste. You simply put the fruit in the top steamer basket; juice runs into the second pot where it is then siphoned off into jars; and the bottom pot is full of boiling water. The tiered system works flawlessly, and the fruit mush that is left in the basket can be mushed up and used for other things or just composted. I made grape juice with this and I didn't even remove the stems. This system is a time saver! Below are a few pictures from my pear endeavors! We used the juice for making wine and the remaining pulp was made into pear butter!
