    The All-Clad one works really well, but I'm guessing there are options out there that are less expensive and work just as well.

    I like my All-clad. All stainless, dishwasher safe.

    Do you use your food mills much? I've thought about getting one, but cooking for 2, wondering about getting a ricer with interchangeable grids instead.

    I was going to ask the same question.

    What do those of you that have them use them for?

    Mashed potatoes? What else?

    I use a food mill about once per year for a soup it seems. I use a ricer far more often.

    Hmmmm....sounds like a ricer might be a better use of space.

    Maybe I've never used a good one, but Ricers are a total PITA IME.

    I have a heavy old ricer that I use for mashed potatoes exclusively. It's not so bad. Takes a little muscle I guess, but not much (since the potatoes have already been boiled and are therefore soft). I suppose if you had to do more than a few potatoes, it would be a PITA, yes. Between a ricer and a blender, I'm still not sure what I would use a food mill for, except a huge batch of mashed potatoes. For fresh tomato sauce, I use a blender. Perhaps good a food mill would do a better job, but having one for those rare occasions seems like a waste of space and a PITA too.
