This medium-sized flour sifter is great for everyday use. You can use it to sift flour for cakes and bread and to dust sugar on top of your desserts as well.
Construction: This flour sifter is made out of quality stainless steel. The sifter has a capacity of 3 cups and is provided with a stainless steel handle with rounded edges. The body of the sifter has markings in volume stamped on the outside and on the inside as well. It has a stainless steel hand-crank which is furnished with a plastic knob for a handle, and which connects with the 2-wire agitator inside the main body of the sifter. It doesn’t have any top or bottom lids.
Function: This contraption is quite easy to use. All you have to do is put in the flour and then just turn the crank-handle as you hold the sifter over your desired surface e.g. a bowl, a counter-top, a cake, etc. The handle, which is a smooth knob that is easy to hold, turns the 2-wire agitator that makes sure that no flour is wasted as it scrapes the mesh at regular, rapid intervals. The rounded edges of the handle make it easy for you to hold the sifter even if it gets quite heavy, as it won’t bite into your skin.
Since the sifter doesn’t have any lids, you can’t store anything in it e.g. sugar.
Cleaning and maintenance: The Norpro sifter is dishwasher-safe but the manufacturer recommends that you hand-wash. Once you have it all clean, you should dry it well so absolutely no moisture remains when you put it away as that might lead to the rusting of the product. And if the mesh rusts, you’ll have to replace it since no one wants rust in their food.
