I tried a few different brands, but none of them compare to this. I love my Oxo sifter!

I have owned this sifter for eight years. It has helped make thousands of cakes, cookies, muffins and cupcakes. I also use it to dust powdered sugar over bundt cakes and to slowly sprinkle flour into roux with one hand while stirring with the other. It is easy to use, clean and store. I will never use a squeeze handle sifter again!
I would give it five stars, but it is not perfect for large batches. The perfect large batch sifter would have the top and bottom lid and a generous handle as this one does, but use a crank handle to sift and have more capacity.
Because my arm gets tired from the side-to-side shaking motion when sifting eight cups of flour, I usually place the lid on the top and shake the sifter up and down. This method sifts in half of the time!

Cheaper than its price
While the design seems very clever, the mechanism is very poor: the agitator is connected to the handle which pivots slightly against the main cup - by shaking, the agitator moves back and forth relative to the cup, helping the flour through the sifter. The problem is that the pivot motion is regulated by the flimsy plastic handle - when you shake it, the metal tabs coming off the cup bang sideways into the handle. I'm basically just waiting for the metal tabs to break through the plastic handle. Save yourself the suspense and buy a more durable design.
