The Food Mill is crafted completely of 18/10 stainless steel. It has two sturdy side handles that keep the mill base securely in place during the food preparation process. Great for pureeing a variety of fruits, vegetables, meats and cheeses into fine, medium, and coarse consistencies.
This sturdy, hand-cranked mill sieves out seeds, skins, and tough fibers. Its perfect for pureeing tomato sauce, thick soups, and homemade baby food. Mashed potatoes made with a food mill also process more quickly than those made with a ricer or hand masher. Three interchangeable grinding discs create a variety of food textures: fine for smooth sauces or beginner baby food; medium for applesauce; large for mashed potatoes.
To use, simply turn the mills crank to push cooked foods through small holes in the disc below. The main handle is ergonomically-designed for smooth action and uniform pureeing. Two sturdy side handles allow the mill to rest on (and the puree to fall into) a pot, pan, or bowl placed underneath. Made from durable 18/10 stainless steel, this mill fits any All-Clad four or 4-1/2 quart saucepan. The entire unit is dishwasher-safe for quick and easy clean-up. --Mary Park
