The Tala Flour Sifter is a kitchen classic. It lets you sift flour one handed by squeezing the spring loaded trigger style handle. So simple, so effective. It was synonymous with Aussie nannas of the 1960s.
Nanna knew something, because this tankard shaped stainless steel beauty guarantees sifting of flour into a bowl without mess, and is a quick route to a well dusted benchtop or a fluffy sponge. And the twin layer construction means it double sifts – making it speedier and more thorough. A necessity for any sponge cake.
The Tala brand is British and has been since 1899. It’s currently under the custodianship of George East Housewares of Suffolk. Their sifter is made from stainless steel and it’s washable. It’s about the same size as a big economy size jam tin – 9.5cm x 12cm. Just right.
