Fabio Leonardi Tomato Machine Review

Fabio Leonardi Tomato Machine Review

Established in 1917, Fabio Leonardi Tomato Machines are the highest quality tomato milling machines available on the market today, renowned for a level of quality that is not found in competing tomato and vegetable milling machines. Rooted in almost 100 years experience, Fabio Leonardi is a passionate, family-run business using generations upon generations of quality, expertise and improvements to create tomato milling and meat grinding machines designed to last a lifetime. Below, you'll find our Fabio Leonardi Tomato Machine Review, where we get into what really sets these machines apart from other brands available on the market. 

Design

Key design features of the Fabio Leonardi tomato milling attachments set them above and beyond competing brands. Constructed from heavy-duty machined steel, Fabio Leonardi attachments use a proprietary lock-style connection to fasten to their motors tightly and seamlessly – a stark contrast to the typically loose, wobbly clamp or screw style fastening systems of other milling machines on the market. Also unique to the Fabio Leonardi design are screw-fit screens, secured in place over the auger with a secure heavy duty retainer, the combination of which virtually eliminates leaking or spraying. The end result? A solid design, constructed to last a lifetime, and ready to handle any task.

Niploy Coating

Fabio Leonardi tomato milling and meat grinding attachments are coated with food-grade, corrosion resistant Niploy – an incredibly strong, chip-resistant coating produced in Fabio Leonardi’s Bologna, Italy manufacturing facility.

Handling the Fabio Leonardi machines, you’ll be able to feel the difference in quality – premium materials, the niploy coating and all-metal components give Fabio Leonardi a weight, strength and durability advantage that is as obvious as it is tangible when compared to the light-duty construction and plastic components of other brands.

Production Capability and Use

Where competing brands use light weight, plastic augers (the milling mechanism responsible for “squeezing”), Fabio Leonardi milling attachments use a heavy duty, niploy coated metal auger – giving you a longer-lasting and more efficient, versatile and durable production capability. Fabio Leonardi’s niploy coated auger makes it possible to mill not only tomatoes, but also a variety of fruits and vegetables – although many customers use the Fabio milling machines strictly for tomato sauce, it’s possible to mill berries, apples, and even hot peppers, making it possible and easy to prepare an array of home-made purees, jams, salsas, hot sauces, and more!

Horse Power 

Whether you need a machine for small-scale home use, or a machine powerful enough to stand up to daily restaurant or professional use, Fabio Leonardi offers a motor size compatible with your needs; coming in 0.30.51.0 and 1.5 HP sizes, all Fabio Leonardi motors are self-lubricating, and have an all-metal direct-drive. At 1.5HP, Fabio Leonardi offers the most powerful milling motor in the industry, designed and built for large or professional milling operations. Featuring the same design and construction as their larger counterparts, the Fabio Leonardi 0.3, 0.5 and 1HP units provide the same professional quality and durability. 
With better construction, design, durability and quality, Fabio Leonardi are built to be the last milling or grinding machine you’ll ever have to buy. Providing the longest-lasting tomato milling and meat grinding machines on the market, Fabio Leonardi machines are backed with almost 100 years of experience and expertise, and designed to last a life time - protecting your investment for many years to come.

Key Features that put Fabio Leonardi in a league of its own:

  • Solid, all-metal direct drive shaft: Fabio Leonardi machines feature solid, heavy-duty design and construction, using all-metal drive shafts putting them above and beyond competing brands – Omra uses a plastic drive shaft which are more prone to wear.

  • Niploy coated attachments and auger: A heavy-duty, food grade, corrosion resistant coating produced in their Bologna, Italy, manufacturing facility makes Fabio Leonardi units more durable than the light-weight, aluminum coatings and plastic augers of competing brands.

  • Stronger motors: better built, more durable, and designed to last a life time, from the 0.3hp to the 1.5hp motors, Fabio Leonardi machines are faster, have a higher production capability, and give you more efficient, versatile, and long-lasting use.

  • 100% Italian made and assembled – no part of the Fabio Leonardi design, manufacturing or assembly process is outsourced!

  • 2 year warranties against product defects.

  • Consiglio’s family tested and approved – with over 40 years of tomato milling experience, we not only sell the Fabio Leonardi equipment, we use them ourselves.
