You can use this same machine as a tomato miller. Our suggested attachment is the SP3 or SP5 found in related items. This attachment should allow the appropriate amount of tomato milling as to not overwork the motor. Also look at the sausage stuffers, found in related items, as a great way to utilize pork, beef, deer, or any other type of meat you may have on hand and run through the milling attachment.

Factory Visit

As the premier distributor of Fabio Leonardi products in the USA I felt it was important to visit the factory and stand toe to toe with those that carry the commitment of quality in a company so rich in it's tradition of quality. I did just that in February of 2007 I saw the different generations tracing back the 99-year history of the company. The passion and commitment to quality was impressive. It wasn't that huge of a factory, and probably looked a lot like it did for the last half century. It was a modest structure not far from the center of Bologna, Italy.

I personally consider Bologna to be the culinary capital of the world with all the influences of Tuscany and Italy centered in one point of heavenly bliss. The passionate affair with food in this region is probably why this company's products are world renown for quality and longevity. Originally this company was focused on the local growers in Tuscany, helping them bring their harvest to market and transform the succulent tomatoes of the region to what are now world famous culinary creations of that region.

From that passion for food grew a passion for quality that Fabio Leonardi has passed down through subsequent generations and that passion extends to every aspect of the manufacturing process. Although it was difficult to keep my eyes from glazing over when his grandson was talking about the perfect temperature and cooling cycle of the castings, how each type of metal is painstaking chosen, and the process of machining is so carefully monitored. You could tell that manufacturing quality was passion of this mans soul. By the time he was talking about the perfect finish for each piece of all I could think about was the terrace at the cafe we were to sip Chianti and look at the panoramic view of Bologna in the valley below while enjoying our lunch. I had all the information I needed feeling assured that the tradition of quality that made this brand world-renowned was still alive and well in the psyche of the current management.
