Yup, it's like a little mill that takes out the skin and seeds for pasta sauce making.  Growing lots of plum toms this year (well, hopefully!).  :)

£24.99 new on e-bay, not much off, but, as they say, every little helps.

I saw one in T K MAXX for £7.99 last week in Maidstone.
As soon as I drove away I regretted not buying it!
I kept thinking, where am I going to put it? My kitchen is already stuffed full of wonderful gadgets and the like. I now think I should have just bought it and worried later.

'Twas in the Maidstone store, but they might have it in Chatham.
And you are right! I should have bought it.

A Pasata maker is also on our list of things we are looking out for on our many visits to Charity shops and car boot sales. We live in hope

i wonder if you could just stick toms in a blender and then run it through a sieve - surely you would get the same effect?
