Best Flour Sifters

Sifting flour helps break up lumps and aerates it, which makes the flour lighter and easier to combine with other ingredients. This aerated flour can help ensure a light, delicate texture for baked goods like angel food or sponge cakes. Sifters also make it easy to quickly flour work surfaces or to add a dusting of powdered sugar or cocoa powder on top of baked goods. When shopping for a flour sifter, consider the amount it holds and ease of use. Here is our review of four different flour sifters so you can find the right one for you.
