Well, I thought I'd help, here are some sifters you could use:

Comes with a lid and a bowl! You are on your own for figuring out how to strap them to your hips, though! thumbs_up.gif

Ok, Edna, I'll do the sifting, but you have to teach me to move like that! icon_lol.gif

I agree that the crank sifters are a serious pain. But the squeeze trigger ones aren't any better in my opinion. Either way, your arm hurts after a while. Definitely mesh strainer. Best option at this point. Until I find a big powered one.

WTH?? Then why make them? Can't they MAKE them food safe? Ya know, so they can be used for the purpose they were intended??



Called a Hoosier. We have one (an actual antique one) in the barn. We haven't refurbished it yet but I'm dying to!

Yah, I love those Hoosier cabinets, but wasn't sure if many people would know what I was talking about! icon_lol.gif My mom collects antiques and has an amazing one that I WISH was mine. But like I said, they say that the sifting bins are not approved for food use. What is the point then? Just to look pretty, I get that, but isn't is possible that someone might want to use it for what it was intended? I know, I know, that's crazy talk! icon_rolleyes.gif I hope you get yours restored and use it! They are so awesome! My mom's house is kind of like a museum with all the antiques. Pretty cool. Not my house... can you say 'kids'!? Hahaha.

If you like antiques you'd LOVE her house! Wowza! icon_eek.gif The stupid part about the unsuitable for food deal is that I'm talking about NEW replacement bins!?!? Why wouldn't they make them food safe? Duh. It just makes NO sense to me.

It's great hu? I have a large bowl that's just wide enough for the strainer to rest on...I pour the entire 2 pound bag of sugar in my strainer and give it a few shakes and I'm done. I use my sifter with the crank handle to store my spatula's in. thumbs_up.gif It has been officially retired.
everyday is a good day, some are just better than others.

Just wanted to let the world know....I have a Bosch mixer (has a cover, I LOVE it) they now sell a sifter attachment that sits atop the workbowl. Add up to 5 lbs of flour, turn on muxer, and becomes an electric sifter that does 5 lb of flour in 60 seconds....I'm in heaven!
