Quick Overview


Why It's Cool: 2 design features that make this more efficient: arm that sweeps the food off the bottom of the mill and blade that moves food into processing area

Even with all the high tech and electronic innovations in the kitchen, the food mill continues to be one of the great kitchen multi-taskers. It’s part sieve and part food processor and wholly perfect for separating soft foods from their skins, stems and seeds. We wouldn’t think of using anything else to make applesauce, and it works brilliantly on tomato or any fruit puree, mashed potatoes, and dozens of other fruits and vegetables, even sweet potatoes. And it’s perfect for making your own baby food (we’re told!). Whenever you need to grind or puree something with a skin or other nasty bits, a food mill will do the separating for you, while it smushes up your food into a smooth or slightly textured puree. And without the aeration motion of a food processor, your purees will be denser and more consistent.

So now that we know that a food mill is (still) useful, what makes a food mill a really Cool Tool? There are a couple of things we look for, and we found that the Food Mill from the clever folks at Gefu has it all--and for a limited time, it’s at a special price! See how it meets our rather demanding criteria...

Details

First, we want a mill that’s sturdy. As cookbook author and TV chef Alton Brown says, “The mill is, however, a rather complex device. If the construction is cheap the device will be unbearable to use.” Our material of choice for a food mill is a good grade of stainless steel. The Gefu Food Mill is beautifully created in 18/10 stainless.

Second, design is important. Most food mills look similar, but there are significant differences. The first thing we look for is a small metal “arm” on the bottom that sweeps the food off the mill and into your bowl. If you don’t have this, your right hand and spatula have a lot of extra work to do. Then we look at the piece of metal that hangs down over the blade; this is the piece that pushes your food off the blade so that it can fall to the bottom and get crushed by the blade to become the puree you want. If this piece is not close enough to the blade, then your food will be on a carnival ride, sitting on the blade and going round and round, but never getting down to business until you intervene and push it off with a spatula. Gefu has both these features covered very well.

You want a food mill with a good capacity so that you don’t have to keep refilling it, but you don’t want it so big that it’s cumbersome. The Gefu Mill is 8-inches in diameter at the top, 5.5-inches at the bottom, and about 4-inches high. It easily went through 4 pounds of apples to make 2 cups of applesauce in one batch.

And finally, you want the convenience and flexibility of more than one blade so you can choose your texture. This also makes it easier to wash when you’re done. The Gefu Mill has 2 interchangeable blades.

So, in short, the Gefu Mill looks good and works great, it covers all the bases that a surprising number of mills miss, and it’s on special! Now how Cool it that!
