11 Best Food Mill Alternatives
Food Mill Buying Guide
OXO Good Grips Food Mill
The first food mill on the list is from the company OXO which is well known for their innovative design philosophy. The company understands that their are many different hands that their products need to work comfortably in and because of this they even have a lost glove collection at the headquarters. But back to the Good Grips Food Mill. It comes with soft non-slip handles which is where it gets the name, and at $50 it is reasonably priced for such an item.
Another great feature is that it is a stainless steel bowl as well as stainless steel grinding discs (fine, medium and coarse) which are perfect for hot foods as well as being able to wash clean without staining from the myriad of products that a cook is sure to want to try this on. It has 3 legs for ideal placement over pots and bowls so that the mill will stay on top as the created food enters below.
Alisa Home Foley Food Mill Grinder
The Alisa Home Foley Food Mill Grinder is a little cheaper as it retails for about $40. Instead of stainless steel for the bowl, this model incorporates BPA-free plastic which helps ease any concerns that one might have over the side effects of too much of that compound. However, the discs are stainless steel and offer a high quality rotation to insure that all of the food gets processed as it was meant to. Interesting notched legs allow cooking choreography to take place and everything is quite easy to clean and can be hung on a hook somewhere in the kitchen when not in use.
Stainless Steel Food Mill - FLOTTE LOTTE by GEFU
This designer food mill is made by the company GEFU and sticks true to its German origin. At about $100 it is closer to the higher end for a food mill, but should definitely be considered if that price suits the budget as it will allow excellence in the kitchen. It is stainless steel and dishwasher safe as most of the others on this list are. Its claim to fame are to unique features: a vertical plate which stops the food from moving to allow a better and faster puree, and a pulp scraper which prevents buildup and allows easier cleanup when finished.
Mirro 50024 Foley Stainless Steel Healthy Food Mill Cookware, 2-Quart, Silver
This Mirro model is one of the selected choices from Amazon itself and at only about $20 it certainly is one of the budget models when it comes to a food mill. Bridging the gap between a sieve and an electric blender as well as most of the other food mills, it is nice to be able to save some money if this is not a heavily used item with your meal selections. Stainless steel construction allows for easy cleanup and it is light enough to be held in the hand for excellent coverage throughout the cooking area.
Cuisinart Stainless Steel Food Mill
Cusinart is a company that has been delivering ideal contraptions for creating art in the kitchen (as the name says) since 1971. Their electric food processor was the first product to hit shelves, but food mills such as this one were not far behind. At about $46 it is reasonably priced with texture selection being a thing of ease due to the 3 included plates for processing. This is another hot item that is receiving great reviews across the board online and should be in the arsenal of any chef looking to impress guests with their creations. It is also stainless still to be able to handle some of the hottest food items and this, of course, allows the easy cleanup before putting it in the dishwasher and forgetting about it.
RSVP VEG-3 Rotary Food Mill, White
RSVP means reserve a special place in your kitchen for one of these budget food mills which sells for only about $25. The bowl is made of white plastic which differs from many of the other models which may fit the decor more closely of the kitchen that it is to be stored in. It can fit on the top of any size pot or bowl from 6-1/4" to 10-1/4" in diameter and also has the standard three different stainless steel plates for changing the texture of the end product as desired. This one has excellent reviews and as an economical model it should stand up to most of the other competition for light use.
Get one of these food mills in the kitchen and add a whole extra range of processing that can be performed. Sometimes it might be used in recipes in order to remove seeds from tomatoes while still allowing the pulp to come through for excellent sauces. At other times the pulp might be unwanted such as when making apple jelly with crab apples when the pulp can be enzymatic and destructive it gets through to the finished product. Then there is the ability to make great mashed potatoes which are homemade and the stuff of legends. Whatever use it may eventually receive, there is no doubt that a food mill is one of the cornerstones of any fully equipped kitchen and by looking at these reviewed products there should be enough for any buying decision so that the order can be placed and soon the food mill will be ready to use.
