Tell me about your food mill

I decided to add one to the kitchen. Something that will last and not rust in a month. TIA.

We have one, Jeeks, but haven't used it in quite a while. Used to use it to make tomato sauce when our tomato plants provided a bounty.

The one we have just has a single set of "holes." Some of the newer ones have interchangeable disks so that different consistencies can be achieved.

This is mine. I mainly use it for seeding blackberries and raspberries.

Mine was pretty much run of the mill (LOL), has 3 sets of strainers and is stainless steel... loves it! By far not the most expensive of the choices, but serves the purpose all the same.

Most food mills these days are made from stainless steel, some are plastic with stainless steel plates, so rusting isn't going to be a problem.

My only advice is to buy a good heavy sturdy SS one (probably going to run you $50-$90) not one of the cheap light $20 models. My XW had a good one that I got used to using and after our divorce I bought one of those cheap ones ... I threw it in the dumpster after using it 3-4 times.
