This stainless steel sifter breaks up and removes clumps from ingredients before baking or cooking. The spring-action squeeze handle rakes ingredients over the mesh screen to processes ingredients quickly. Powdered ingredients, like baking flours and icing sugar tend to settle and compact during shipping. The flour sifter aerates these ingredients and removes clumps for lighter, fluffier baked goods. No more lumps! Simply place the sifter over a bowl, mesh-side facing down. Measure in ingredients and squeeze the handle. Great for aerating all purpose flour, bread flour, cake flour, coconut flour, gluten free flour, for lighter baked goods and helps mix and blend in other ingredients evenly, like salt, baking soda, and baking powder, for an even consistency and better taste.
