Food Mills: OXO Food Mill & Potato Ricers

Food mills are an often-underappreciated kitchen tool that can, in reality, make your life a lot easier. If you’re used to making creamy mashed potatoes, for example, you probably understand the amount of time needed to mash the potatoes several times to get rid of lumps, and then perhaps use a wooden spoon or whisk while stirring constantly. Now imagine that you could do all of this in a single, simple step. That’s exactly what Williams-Sonoma food mills let you do. Creating soft and airy riced potatoes, homemade tomato puree for spicy salsas or spaghetti sauce, applesauce and more, is easy with our food mills. The Williams-Sonoma Open Kitchen Food Mill features durable construction with a simple hand crank that is easy to use. Any soft fruit or vegetable can be placed directly in the mill – seeds, skin and all – since this practical device will automatically separate the pulp from any undesired parts. It is also dishwasher safe for quick cleanup.

For harder ingredients, such as chocolate and Parmesan cheese, use our Cole and Mason Cheese Nut and Chocolate Mill. It allows you to shave chocolate or chop nuts for the top of desserts as well as add touches of distinctive Romano, Asiago, or Pecorino cheeses to pasta or risotto. For making great risotto, use one of our professional-quality saute pans. Serve your finished meal in an elegant family-style serving bowl to spend time together. Afterward, share some tiramisu or ice cream in an individual bowl.
