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 But since I dont dare part with it....it is now happily my new tool holder for decorating!
I could also see it decoratively painted and filled with a silk flower arrangement.
thats cool and i think i have the same sifter at home and i bought a new one during the week (online so not delivered yet) and now im feeling guilty about wanting to throw it away
Somethings are just to precious to part with -
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
Easy to operate sifter:
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):
Mrs-A, what kind of sifter did you buy? I .......)
