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.

    food mill great potatoes mashed purees instead price puree smooth

    I wouldn't recommend buying this food mill. It barely pushes through soft potatoes, and is just kinda cheap. I would rather invest in a $150 food mill instead, and will probably end up doing so.

    These are an old fashioned work horse in sooo many restaurants. The Tellier is the ONLY brand to buy. they hold u great to daily abuse. The only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is this is the Tin plate model which will rust and discolor. So If that is a concern go with the blue handle stainless version.

    Great Food mill to have for grinding down all types of food. very easy to keep clean and very durable to last a long time.

    from Louie Pizzeria Posted on

    We purchased this food mill for primarily making mashed potatoes. It is durable and has been working well for us so far. I expect it will last awhile.

    from ShuBrew Posted on

    Decent food mill. Green "grip" portion of handle broke off within a week of using it. Not sure if my cooks are too rough or if it just isn't strong enough. Either way it still works but it's a disappointment to have something this pricy break so fast.

    from Up Periscope Inc Posted on

    Thank you for your review! We're sorry to hear your grip broke off so soon. For a heavier duty mill, try this Tellier Stainless Steel Food Mill.

    We waited too long to return this item or we would have: when we opened the box and took it out of the packaging it was dirty and rusty. Yuck! Go for a stainless mill instead.

    from The Delish Dish Posted on

    Thank you for your review. Our Customer Solutions team is always happy to help, and will be in contact with you shortly. If you would like to try a stainless steel version, try the Tellier X3 5 Qt. stainless steel food mill #3 instead.

    Great for purees whether it's fruit or vegetable. Salsas too! I love the texture of sweet potato puree using this gadget and it does a great job separating the "strings" making your puree smooth. Cleaning is very simple, and the price is hard to beat!
