Do you use a sifter? Ours disappeared in our last move, so we use a mesh sieve instead whenever we really need to sift something. But sifters can be really handy when you want to thoroughly combine spices and flour, or make sure your powdered sugar is totally free of lumps. Here's one sifter that we really like the looks of.
We really like how this sifter measures the flour both before and after it's sifted. Some recipes are very precise about the measurements of pre- or post-sifted flour or powdered sugar, and this measuring cup sifter lets you see both. It has rave reviews on its product page, too, which is a good sign.
Do you use a sifter for your holiday baking?
