Sifters

So your favorite cake recipe calls for sifted flour, but you don't have the right tools on hand. Sifters come in three major varieties: * '''Rotary Crank''' ** The most rustic of the sifters is the rotary crank. ** They usually work pretty well, but smaller lumps might get missed. * '''Squeeze Handle''' ** You only need one hand to operate these. ** Frees up your other hand to add other ingredients. ** There's also less of a chance of getting dust in your face with the squeeze handle. * '''Battery Operated''' ** It will do all the work for you! Perfect for those who have trouble turning a rotary or squeezing the handle - especially cooks with arthritis. ** The battery-operated sifter comes with a lid for extra protection against dust clouds and messes. ** However, you'll have less control over how fast it works. * No matter which type you choose, look for one with stainless steel mesh. * Sifters made entirely of stainless steel will be a little heavier than plastic counterparts, but will last longer.
