A Food Mill is part strainer, part masher. It consists of three parts: a bowl, a stainless steel disk, and a crank, which in combination produce the fluffiest mashed potato, the smoothest soups, and the silkiest sauces. Some other common uses include tomato sauce, jams, jellies, preserves,and purees.
