A percolator is a basic kitchen tool whose design hasn’t changed much over the years, simply because there is no point in changing something that works well. That being said, there are now several models of percolators that have different shapes and sizes. Do some research if you want to find the one that is perfect for your kitchen.

Sometimes the old tools are the best, and a food mill is a perfect example of this. It’s easy to use and clean, and it’s the best for making soups, purees, sauces and baby food. Mills are designed to fit right over a pot or bowl, and they come with different sized screens for a variety of textures. What’s more they’re actually fun to use, and your kids will want to turn the crank.

These are becoming more and more popular, and many manufacturers are jumping on the silicone bandwagon. Why? Because they work.
