Like I’ve said in other posts, food mills are the choice for professional chefs for pureeing soups and making homemade tomato sauces. Just cranking the handle separates the soft pulp of the food from the seeds, skins, and other fibrous parts. So, if you’ve decided to use a food mill, it is important to find the best one for you and your needs. Read my Cuisipro Deluxe Food Mill review below and let me know what you think about it.

Important Features

Heavy Duty, Stainless Steel Construction

Cuisipro definitely makes a well-built food mill. They use 18/10 stainless steel which is the same grade of stainless we use in our commercial kitchens. It is also used in flatware and silverware because it is sturdier and is harder to bend.

This one even feels heavier – it weights 3.6 lbs which is almost twice as heavy as the Weston food mill. Stainless steel also holds up better to heat than plastic models.

25 Year Warranty!

Because it is so well built, this model offers an almost unheard of 25-year warranty

3 Sizes of Milling Discs

Like most of the food mills I have reviewed, the Cuisipro includes 3 milling discs. But, the sizes are a little different.  Included are a 2 mm disc for tomatoes and baby food, a 3 mm disc for ricing potatoes, and a 4 mm disc for applesauce. The sizes refer to the size of the holes by the way.

Sits High in the Bowl

For extreme clean freaks (you know who you are!), this model sits high on top of the bowl. Some food mills sit lower which means that the food could build up around the bottom of the bowl. Not everyone likes their prepared food making contact with their kitchen tools. Although, as long as the mill started out clean, I don’t think it matters much! 🙂

Ergonomic Handle

The handle is softer and larger than some of the other models I have reviewed. It is also ergonomically curved. This could make it a better food mill for people with arthritis in their hands because it will be easier to turn.

Disassembles for Cleaning

This food mill disassembles for cleaning to really get the nooks and crevices clean. Users report it is simple to take apart and put back together.

It is dishwasher safe and the manufacturer recommends the top rack. Personally, I wouldn’t put the discs in the dishwasher though because it could dull them. But, this model is a higher grade of stainless and may be ok.

User Reviews

User reviews of the Cuisipro Deluxe food mill are mostly good with a few bad ones here and there. The positive reviews all state the food mill is well made, easy to take apart and put back together for cleaning, and that it is easy to use and operate.

Most of the bad reviews seem to be from the disappointment of having paid so much for a food mill. This is one of the pricier units – you are paying for North American labor and higher grade stainless steel.

There are common threads that it didn’t do well for tomatoes especially. There are occasional complaints about the handles falling off but most of them were replaced under the 25-year warranty.

Summary and Conclusion

The Cuisipro Deluxe food mill has a lot to offer. It’s 18/10 stainless construction makes it durable and heavier duty than some other food mills. It offers the standard 3 discs and is easy to use. It is also easy to clean by taking it apart easily.

It is also heavier, though, if arm weakness is a problem. You will also pay a premium price for this food mill. But, you do get a 25-year warranty in return.

So, is the Cuisipro Deluxe food mill for you? If you are looking for a heavy duty food mill that works well, it probably is. As long as you have the cash to drop on a top end food appliance. You can read about my favorite food mill in this article.
