Flour Sifter Reviews?


January 11, 2010

Sifting FlowerHas anyone ever had a sifter that actually works? Of course years ago we all sifted flours and every now and then I get a recipe that needs that. My sifters always seem to get very difficult to use. The inward motion to shift is OK but to release it again I have to use my hand to put it back to stage 1, a real pain in the neck. Do I really need to sift flour in this day and time?

For many years I have not sifted flour, instead I just whisk.

I have a sifter with a handle that you crank or turn and it works all the time.

Best thing to do when you get a bag of flour it put it in a new container, that puts some air into it right away. Then use a wire strainer.

Best way to measure flour is by weighing, then you know you have exactly what you need, if you used flour before and after sifted, you can get two different measurements.


Martha Stewart also suggests, weighing flour (I got a Biggest Loser scale for 14.99 with coupon from Bed Bath and Beyond, works great!) then using a whisk with all the dry ingredients, waa laa, "sifted"!

I think that most flour comes pre-sifted, although I don't know how that is supposed to work because by the time you purchase it from the grocery store and bring it home, it would all have compacted again. If something calls for sifted, I would just subtract a little less flour than what the recipe calls for.


I have my mom's sifter and it was a very simple one that worked great. I have never seen another like it. It is all rusty now but still does the job when I need it.
