Hi there. I must be off my rocker... I simply prefer an old fashioned flour sifter like grandma used to have. The one with the crank and the wires that scrape the screen. When I went to buy one for my first apartment I was shocked to see BATTERY operated sifters... and the kind with a squeeze trigger and hexagonal disk that moves to get the flour or powdered sugar through. They wear my hand out, are harder to clean (the one I was forced to buy has two layers of screen... as if it wasn't terrible enough!), and take longer to use. I think sometimes that the old fashioned simple things are fine and needn't be improved upon! I guess I will have to order a good sifter online, and throw this modern junk in the garbage pail. How do YOU feel about your flour sifters?
