Although I have Celiac disease and my food has to be gluten free, I still do some baking with regular flour.

When filling the canister with flour, I sift it into the container. It's ready for accurate measure when needed.


You may notice my canister is an oldie, probably from the 70s. It matched the color of the refrigerator at the time. My sifter was a wedding gift to us 57 years ago and still good as new. I'm proud to say that I'm married to the same man. A saying back then was "The way to a man's heart is through his stomach". I believe there is a lot of truth in that.

To cut down on cleanup when sifting flour, place a paper plate under the measuring cup so that when the flour is sifted, the extra falls on the plate. Afterward, you can easily fold the plate and pour the extra flour back into the canister.
