Mrs. Anderson's Crank Flour Sifter breaks up and removes clumps from ingredients before baking or cooking. The crank handle rakes ingredients over the mesh screen to processes ingredients quickly. Powdered ingredients, like baking flours and confectioners' sugar tend to settle and compact during shipping. It fluffs up these finely powdered ingredients for lighter baked goods and helps mix and blend in other ingredients evenly. Made from stainless steel with a fine wire mesh, Mrs. Anderson's Crank Flour Sifter is sturdy, durable, and resists rust. Hand wash in warm, soapy water. Dry thoroughly.
