Tips for Using a Food Mill and GIVEAWAY!!


Here are some tips to make using the OXO Food Mill super easy:

  • 1. Close the “legs” and nest the food mill inside a bowl (versus on top of it). For me, this was the most stable way to use it.
  • 2. Rotate the mill clockwise for a few turns then counter-clockwise for a few turns in order to fully process all of the food.
  • 3. Don’t forget to scrape the yummy bits of food off the bottom of the mill.


OXO Food Mill works great when nested inside a bowl.

Make sure to rotate the mill clockwise and counter-clockwise to fully process the food.

Don't forget to scrape the bottom of your food mill to get all the bits of puree and baby food.


Here’s what I love about my OXO Food Mill:

  • 1. It’s a really versatile tool. With it I’ve made purée, sauces and soups — using all sorts of produce.
  • 2. It comes with three different-sized blades so you can customize how coarse or fine you’d like your creation to be.
  • 3. All parts are dishwasher safe, so clean up is a breeze.
  • 4. It uses elbow grease and not electricity, so you can get a bit of an arm workout, too.
  • 5. It’s so easy to use, my teeny tiny Sous Chef can help out with it.


Here are a few of the recipes I’ve made with my OXO Food Mill:

    Hi Jory, have you used the Food Mill with fruit? I’m wondering about apples and bananas, things like that. Thanks!

      Hi Russ,
      I’ve used the food mill for various stone fruits but haven’t tried apples or bananas yet. I think both fruits, when cooked, would purée well in the food mill.
