Many companies make perfectly good flour sifters. We make the best. This is the original reference for all flour sifters made to this day, identified by its wood-knobbed crank and four-wire agitator. Over 200 years later, while decorative details of the flour sifter have varied—from colorful knobs in the early 1900s to kitschy painted varieties in the 1980s and '90s—its basic design and manufacturing processes have remained virtually unchanged. In 1819, Jacob Bromwell® invented the world's first flour sifter, which eventually became patented in 1930 (Patent No. 1753995). Still today, our popular 3-cup flour sifters feature a single screen and our proprietary 4-wire agitator, producing the finest and smoothest flour possible for perfect cakes, cookies, and more.
