In Search of the Perfect Sifter

My sifter broke last week and I don't know why is it so difficult to find a new one that I like or works. I feel like Goldilocks looking for a new sifter.This sifter handle was too hard to squeeze, and it was too small.  It went back to the store.

Sifter #1

The next sifter looked nice, the handle was easy to squeeze, and it was big enough.  Looks can be deceiving, because this sifter did not sift the all of the flour.  It started out all right.but half way through, it clogged up on the bottom, and I had to finish the rest of the flour by hitting my hand against the side of sifter, not good.This sifter went back to the store.

Sifter # 2
 And this one is just right...This is a picture of the perfect sifter, which I have yet to find.  As you see the picture is empty, because I haven't found it yet.
Sifter #3

 Please, I need the help of all my  blogger friends to let me know if you love your sifter and where you got it, so I can find the perfect sifter, or at least one that works and is easy to use.  Thank you for your help!


  1. That empty picture makes me sad! I use a fine sieve for my sifting and it works wonderfully. I just knock on the side of it to get it moving instead of squeezing the handle. So there are never parts that break. It works great for sifting and for sprinkling powdered sugar on stuff. Like Alton says, things in the kitchen should be multi-purpose. :)

  2. I have one of those, but I thought I would need a "real" sifter. I'll try the sieve, and let you know how it works. thanks for the tip.

  3. Becky let me know when you find it, me and my mom have both been looking for one that works great! Mine you have to beat on the side to get it to sift!

  4. Becky (Baking and Cooking) I guess that I am not the only one with "sifter" problem.
