Durable and sturdy, this food mill brings an easy touch of gourmet style to your kitchen. It has a rotating blade attached to a handle that you turn to press food through the perforations. It does a better job than a food processor because it's easier to control. Control is the big difference, food is never over-processed. A food mill breaks down the food but never really smashes it to a paste. With 3 sizes of disks, you can make a fairly fine to a slightly coarse puree.
