IMPORTANT: COVID-19 UPDATE
Today we're shipping orders for in-stock items placed October 16. Our Hampton showroom is temporarily closed. Despite high order volume, our amazing shipping team is rapidly reducing processing times—we’ve recently added 17 new team members! We greatly appreciate your business and we’re doing our very best to serve you, as Jim C. of California tells. A word to the wise: Because resupply of many product lines remains daunting, and processing times may grow again in coming weeks, there’s never been a year like this to do your Christmas shopping and other year-end buying very early!

This 70-mesh flour sifter, made by L'Equip, has an 8 cup capacity and sits on top of the mixer bowl. Starting with whole grain flour, the sifter separates the bran, producing very fine flour that's ideal for making pastries, cakes, and cookies. The remaining bran can be used in a variety of other products including baked goods, smoothies, soups and casseroles.
Under the rim of the mesh disk are three short (1/8") pins that fit into three corresponding sockets in the hopper rim below. For the sifter to work properly, the pins need to be in the sockets before use. To do this, first align the slot of the sifter's drive shaft over the cross-pin of the mixer's shaft, then rotate the mesh disk until the pins drop into place. This is described in the user instructions, but we point it out because the pins are fairly small and would be easy to overlook.
“My package arrived quickly and I couldn't believe the care you used in packaging it. I highly recommend Pleasant Hill Grain.”

By Rafe W. in IA on 7/24/2017 - Verified BuyerI have had a Bosch Universal Mixer for over 35 years. I have most of the accessories but the sifter was not one I had. I read the reviews and there were some quite negative reviews about how the sifter did sift well, wouldn't sift enough flour, etc. However, I liked the idea of being able to get all the benefits of whole wheat without the bran. As soon as I got the sifter I ground 9 cups of whole wheat and set up the sifter and began to sift the flour. I put 4 cups of the ground flour at a time into the sifter and started the motor. I sifted on setting 3 and it took about five minutes to sift all my flour. I got wonderful bran to make bran muffins, to add to other recipes that I want wheat bran in. The flour I got after sifting made a bread that was a rich white/yellow color, tasted wonderful, and was so moist. I found none of the issues that people had talked about! I would recommend this device to anyone.12 out of 12 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By Jacqueline D. in NC on 8/11/2016 - Verified BuyerI use to put my fresh ground flour in a fine mesh sieve and then shake it over a bowl. It was very tiring and took a long time to do small amounts. Using the Bosch sifter has made life so much easier. It is a very fine mesh and takes out a LOT of the bran and makes a very fine flour. It is easy to attach to my mixer, I fill it and walk away for a few minutes. I keep a few containers of some sifted flour and some un-sifted of hard and soft wheat and then I can play with the % I add of each. If I need a lot of structure and less bran then I might use a 50/50 mix. The great thing is I still get to use my fresh ground flour and the time saved from not hand sifting. Good bye store bought AP flour. So glad I found it!11 out of 11 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By Heather Z. in MN on 8/10/2018 - Verified BuyerIt doesn’t get the flour to a true “white flour” state. It does make it easier/cleaner it sift most of the bran/germ out. All in all it’s a fun gadget to have. I wish they made different gage screens.Moderator:
In fairness to Bosch, white flour definitely is not what they intend the sifter to produce. To achieve that, the same processes used in commercial milling would have to be employed, with the result that, just as with store-bought white flour, virtually every natural nutrient would be removed. Thanks for your review.7 out of 7 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By Tiffany W. in WA on 3/12/2019 - Verified BuyerIt’s great for your home milled flour. If you bake a lot of cakes and pastries this works well. I’m use to sifting flour by hand and it takes for ever. And when sifting flour by hand you don’t get all the bran out. This gets the bran out and makes a nice fluffy flour. Which you need when making Japanese cheesecake or croissants.6 out of 6 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By Kathleen B. in MN on 3/2/2019 - Verified BuyerThe sifter works just as it says it will. It sifts flour to a very fine level. I bought it to sift freshly milled four in the hopes of being able to improve my efficiency in the kitchen when baking bread (I like to remove a bit of the bran on occasion ). It isn’t really faster than doing it by hand, but you can dof things while it's sifting and for me that’s a big deal... I really hate sifting. My one wish for the sifter is that it have screens of different sizes (or that you could purchase them). The flour that comes out of it is very fine, a little too fine for my purposes. I was hoping for a high extraction flour (85%), I’m guessing it’s more like 70%. Would be a perfect tool if you use all freshly ground flour and want a tool to remove lots of bran so that you can make cookies, cakes etc.Moderator:
Thanks for the great review, Kathleen. We have reps at a trade show right now where the manufacturer is exhibiting, and they'll have your comments within 24 hours!6 out of 6 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By Richard in Texas on 1/5/2018 - Verified BuyerI bought this on 12/29/2011 and haven't used it much. Not because it doesn't work well; it works fine. I just found that I really don't need it much. Frankly, if I knew another Universal user I'd give it away. Typical high quality.5 out of 5 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By Anita M. in IA on 12/10/2018 - Verified BuyerThis sifter is amazing! I've been using it to get a fine pastry flour with freshly ground soft white wheat, or for lighter loaves of bread with hard white or red wheat. I grind very finely using my KoMo mill, then fill the sifter about half full and turn on to setting 1 and let it do its thing. I usually use the sifted bran to make bran flakes. It's a bit difficult to get the remaining flour out of the nooks and crannies, so I don't really try too much. You can the sifted flour to make your own sourdough starter too. Works wonderfully!4 out of 4 people found this review helpful. Did you?

By Donna R. in CA on 3/13/2020 - Verified BuyerThe sifter does exactly what it's supposed to do and it does it well. I don't have to do anything other than measure my flour into the hopper. Everything falls into the bowl - no need to transfer and get flour everywhere.2 out of 2 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By Jeff N. in OH on 11/15/2019 - Verified BuyerImpressed with the quality and optional features. Easy to store and has multiple uses from mixing, blending, sifting, etc.... More impressed with the customer service at Pleasant Hill... Stocked items with people available on the phone is a winning mix!2 out of 2 people found this review helpful. Did you?
