Mesh Sugar Shaker - A New Use

It's been way too long since my last post. It's not due to lack of cooking though. I'm still cooking and baking, I've just been a little busy. I have A LOT of photos to sort through.

In the mean time, I thought I'd share a quick post on my new favorite gadget. I love gadgets. But even more than gadgets, I love finding a new use for them. Working with dough means sprinkling a lot of flour on your workspace and the dough itself. It also means it ends up everywhere and a lot goes to waste. I've been using this mesh sugar shaker to sprinkle the flour and it works great! It really helps keep the flour contained to my workspace and when my hands are wet, I don't have to worry about drying them and 'caking' up the flour.

I found this one at World Market for under $5.

Look how beautifully and evenly it spreads the flour. Yes, I'm a little OCD, just a little. :)

  1. They were only $1.99 online! I ordered 4. One for flour, sugar, cocoa, and Cinnamon. I cannot wait! I love to bake and my sifter is way to messy. I was wondering though. It said in the description it had a top. Is it referring to the sifting lid or is there a plastic top to put on the shaker to keep it from spilling or drying out?
