A misunderstood tool. Buy It.
on November 10, 2005
This excellent food mill made of heavy stainless steel does NOT do the same job as either a food processor, blender, or grater. The one tool to which it is most similar is the potato ricer, which I choose when I am cooking for only two, but the food mill is much better when there are four our more diners for which to make truly lump free mashed potatles.
The biggest difference between the food mill and those powered appliances is that one can selectively strain out seeds and skins from the pulp of things such as tomatoes and other thin-skinned fruits.
A secondary consideration is the fact that a food mill is a lot easier to clean and is therefore a lot more sanitary than those scratch prone plastic food processor components.
I have used this model for years and would use it more often if I were cooking routinely for more than two.
Very highly recommended.
