A food mill is a kitchen tool designed to mash and sieve foods to a desired consistency, as determined by the size of the disc insert being used.
Other ModelsContinuous feed food mills are perfect for users who require more output than with a traditional, manual food mill, yet not quite as much as with a motorized model. They are ideal for pureeing large quantities of tomatoes for tomato-based sauces.

- The seed size or
- How fine you want the end results
