I used to think that a food mill was one of those kitchen tools that just lived in my kitchen to collect dust. But, over the years, I've come to realize how easy it is to find ways to use it. Lulu primarily uses in the soups and stews section, but it's also perfect for making the best tomato sauce, as well as the fluffiest mashed potatoes you've ever had in your life. Instead of pulverizing ingredients like a food processor might, the mill gently breaks up the product, creating soft, uniform pieces, highlighting the main ingredient in whatever you're making. Truly, it's almost impossible to find a subsitute for a food mill in the kitchen.
