Rotary Food Mills

Rotary Food Mills

Have you ever wanted to puree fruits or vegetables, but you didn’t want to have to drag out the big food processor or have to clean it up later? Not to mention, a food processor is going to leave you with all the skins and all the seeds too. Well, there’s a highly portable and very inexpensive solution to these problems and one that not only purees your fruits and vegetables but also takes out all the skins and seeds. Hi, I’m Steve Ziegler, Product Expert at the WEBstaurantstore. A food mill is a tool of choice for folks who have to make purees often but you can also use it for making things like mashed potatoes, applesauce or even spaetzle. We have several different units available from our 2lb Choice Food Mill to our Heavy Duty 10lb Rotary Food Mill; this is great for high volume applications. Now all of these units work in a very similar fashion so today I’m going to teach you how to use these using our newest, our most popular and our least expensive model, the Choice 2lb Food Mill. Now, the perforated disks that come with this unit have a slight conical shape and you’re going to want them pointing upwards. We’re going to go ahead and drop this in the bowl right like so. You’ll see there’s a hole right there and your pusher has a little pin there and you’re going to want to insert that pin into the hole. And from there what you’ll do is, you see this part right here has holes in it, and I’m going to put one into the hooks and then you’ll feel the springs in this unit when you put the other one in the hook and there you have it, now we have the unit put together. Now whether you’re going to make marinara or barbecue sauce, you of course need to puree your tomatoes. First, I’m going to start and show you some whole peeled tomatoes from a can. We sell these on the WEBstaurantstore and we have great pricing so check them out in our consumables area. I’m going to place some of these into the mill. Now, these are already peeled but they still have their seeds in there, so we’re going to see if we can puree these tomatoes and also remove the seeds. So, I’m just going to go ahead and start milling these tomatoes. Now that we’re about done you can see we are left with the seeds and some of the harder pulp and down below we have a beautiful tomato puree that we can cook down to make our marinara or our barbecue sauce or whatever sauce it is that we’re making. Now from here, let’s go ahead and use some tomatoes that still have their skins on them and see how we do with those. Ok, now that we’ve done whole peeled tomatoes from can, let’s use some fresh tomatoes. Now these, I bought yesterday and I cooked this morning and they still have their skins on along with all their seeds so we’re going to process these and see how this works in order to make a sauce and also remove most of the skin. So I’m going to go ahead and just start milling again. Ok, now I’m just about finished here and you can see this is where a food mill really earns it keep. Besides taking out all the seeds, we got all of the skins off our fresh tomatoes without any extra work and what we’re left with down here is a beautiful tomato puree. Now let’s use our Choice 2lb Food Mill to make some mashed potatoes. Now, why would you want to make some mashed potatoes in a food mill? Well, that’s because if you make mashed potatoes using a mixer you’re going to end up with very gluey potatoes. It’s the same reason why people use ricers, you want nice fluffy mashed potatoes, so I’m going to fill up my hopper here and I’m going to go ahead and start milling these mashed potatoes. Ok, now that we’re just about done, we can take a look underneath and you can see what we have are beautiful, nice, fluffy mashed potatoes. These will definitely make your customers or your family very happy. So there you go, just a few uses for our food mills. In addition to what I’ve shown you, you can also use these for making purees for baby food. You can make clean fruit purees for gelato or ice cream. You can even make bread crumbs with these little machines. Possibilities are only limited by your imagination.

    I used this item to run enough tomatoes thru it to can 5 qts. of tomato sauce. The unit worked very well, and all that was left in the unit was seeds and skins. I would recommend this unit to others.

    I was sorely disappointed in this item. At the price I wasn't expecting something exceptionally robust, but I expected it to at least be functional. The construction is absurdly flimsy and "cheap" feeling, it's cumbersome to use, and does not permit smooth motion. I have no idea how this compares to the more expensive models from the same company, but do yourself a favor and avoid this model at all costs. I used it once, but have to reason to use it ever again.
    Thank you for the review! We’re sorry this has not worked well for you. Please remember our Customer Solutions team is there to help should you encounter any issues.
    What a piece of garbage. It never worked, it came apart every time i attempted to use it... i ended up just throwing it away in the garbage. Do not purchase.
    Thank you for your review! We are sorry this Tellier N3004X 8 1/4" Food Mill - Stainless Steel, 3 1/2 Qt. has not worked well for you. A Customer Solutions Representative will contact you soon!
    The Tellier food mill is nice overall. I have one criticism that makes my rating a 4 star and not a 5 star. While making tomato sauce it requires 3 hands as the tomatoes just spin because there is no stopper as in other models. I used the medium grate and it make perfect consistency with very few smaller seeds sneaking through. Once I got a groove going and a person to help me hold a spoon to stop the fruit of the tomato from just spinning and not getting under the mill wheeler it went great.
    Food mill is a really great product to consider. It comes with a number of different inserts that help get the job done. This has helped us with making a number of different things. The different inserts create a different kind of consistency and texture to the ingredient you place inside.

    This food mill is great because it makes the best mashed potatos. We stopped using our stand mixers because all it did was produce a lumpy product! This mill is the real deal and is great to have in the kitchen! Also, super affordable.
