So my first sifter was actually from my grandmother's house who is now passed away. It's kinda cool because I think of her everytime I bake a cake. Well tonite I started sifting flour and noticed a huge gap in the wire icon_sad.gif But since I dont dare part with it....it is now happily my new tool holder for decorating! thumbs_up.gif

Cute. icon_smile.gif

I could also see it decoratively painted and filled with a silk flower arrangement.

Mrs-A, what kind of sifter did you buy? I live in the middle of no where and the one store that had a sifter only had one that uses the squeeze trigger. Whos idea was that??? My hand get sore, its a work out. Then again, maybe I just need to work out...anywho, point being, im in the market for a great sifter icon_cool.gif

alewop - when my sifter died i went and bought a huge wire mesh collander with a long handle and use that now.
It holds about 10 cups of dry ingrediants and just by tapping the sides - it sifts everything so quickly due to the large area of mesh.

Those sifters with the squeeze trigger are rather hand numbing aren't they?

I use one like Bluhue's and I love it. That thing can hold a two pound bag of powdered sugar with room left for more. So user friendly too.

Those squeeze ones are awful.

I bought a BIG 8-cup crank-style sifter on eBay a while back and I love it. It's like this one (but this was not the seller I bought mine from):
