Sifting through the Memories steel mesh screen Volume markings can be seen on the inside and outside of the sifter Crank handle

by John Reardon for Saratoga TODAY Hello my Foodie Friends! Well it’s baking season and there is one product that is a must have when it comes down to it and that is flour. When you are trying to aerate flour and give it more volume, ensuring a standard measure and uniform texture in your baked goods, a stainless steel sifter is a great tool. Now there are several different types;

Squeeze 5-cup stainless steel squeeze sifter from Mrs. Anderson’s Baking Stainless-steel construction Rotary blade design Tapered bottom Easy and convenient squeeze handle

Shake Simply shake side to side for sifted flour or powdered sugar Comfortable handle Top and bottom lids keep Sifter and cupboards clean

Rotary Crank

3 cup size is ideal for most sifting jobs also available in 1 and 5 cup sizes Features a stainless steel body, stainless steel 2 wire agitator and stainless

Top rack dishwasher safe

My mom and my mother-in-law both used the crank type and I bet yours did to! In my opinion and most of my

customers, it’s still the best. It is dishwasher safe and stainless steel so it will not rust. I guess if it has a flaw, it is that you must use two hands to operate it. What this means is that we have to putdown our iPhone, iPad or beer. The squeeze type works well but my hand gets tired and it is not as even in

its distribution. The shake type makes me sing Elvis and Jerry Lee Lewis songs. Paula is not fond of my singing. The kids loved it from ages 0 to 12 but now, my singing can clear out the room or hands go over the ears. The dog is still cool with it though! So stop down to Compliments to the

Chef at 46 Marion Ave and grab a sifter! Thank ya, ahh, thank ya very much! Have some fun with your family this weekend and remember my Foodie Friends; “Life Happens in the Kitchen” Take care, John and Paula
