4.0 out of 5 stars good design, but handle could be more comfortable, September 21, 2007

This review is from: Mirro Foley 3.5-Quart Stainless Steel Food Mill (Kitchen)
I bought this food mill because it's the same design as the food mill my grandmother has had for decades. I've been using it the past few weeks to make tomato gazpacho. This food mill is more than up to the task.

The stainless steel surface is easy to keep clean, and it disassembles for even easier cleaning. As a nice touch, the diameter of the scraper wire on the bottom of the mill is just a fraction smaller than the grill holes, which means that if you have seeds lodged in any of the holes after cleaning, you can use the scraper wire to knock them out.

The only reason why I'm giving it 4 stars instead of 5 is because the double-loop handle can be uncomfortable to hold after a while. (I can understand why they used the double-loop design--because it stays cooler if you're milling over a heated pot--but I think I would've preferred having a more comfortable handle and using a potholder if necessary.)

4.0 out of 5 stars Foleys food mill, January 31, 2009
Amazon Verified Purchase( What's this?)
I had one about 30 years ago and just loved it for making applesauce. Unfortunately I lost it a few years ago and had to get another one. These are very hard to find but are one of the best of their kind on the market. You do have to remember, though to grind clockwise, then reverse every 5 or 6 times. Also about every 15 minutes or so, you need to empty it, turn it over and tighten the nut on the bottom as it works its way loose at times. Overall it's a very good product.

1.0 out of 5 stars Just not tough enough., November 25, 2008

I bought this about a year and a half ago. I make blackberry jam and needed it to puree the berries and get some of the seeds out. It never did a very good job. It didn't put enough pressure on the fruit so I ended up with a good deal of waste. The second summer I used it the handle fell off (poorly soldered). Then the knob on top came off and I couldn't get it back on so ended up pitching the whole thing. It might be up to wimpy stuff like applesauce, but if you are a serious canner, find something stronger.
