Please help. I have arthritis and carpal tunnel and always, always use a sifter, but find it increasingly difficult to operate. Does anyone know of a good quality ( battery or electric perhaps) sifter to make it easier on me ? thanks for all your replies.

I use a large strainer and just shake it back and forth. I hate the crank style sifters.

I also use a larger strainer and a heating core to move the dry ingredients quickly through. The back of a large ladel works well too.

I also use a large strainer to sift. When I say large, I mean large. It will hold two pounds of powdered sugar at a time (with room left) and I just shake it thru to sift. Bought it at wal-mart for $4.00.

ditto on the big wire mesh strainers. There's nothing better.

I was at Walmart a few months ago and found a sifter that had a turn-handle. Works great for me. The only problem is that it only holds two cups of sugar at a time.

I use a large mesh strainer and a spoon. It works much better than the sifters I've tried.

I use a large one that comes in a set of 3.... BUT this is the one I want to get.... it's so easy.... you put the PS and use a bench scraper and just push the sugar through it and it's fast and good for flour and PS.... here is the link there are quite a few here... I hope you find one that can help you to sift your PS (I HATE SIFTING PS!!!) icon_cry.gificon_cry.gif .....

I use a hand crank 8-cup sifter and love it! I can put a whole 2# PS in or a coupl of cake mixes.

I use an 8 cup crank sifter and a large strainer to sift with. Just depend on what I'm in the mood to use.

Thank you, everyone, for your ideas. The pic of the round sifter looks like one my mom used when I was young. Yes, a larger one will work better for me, one I can put right over my big KA bowl. I appreciate this....thanks
