Vegetable mill

Also known as a mouli grater this is a hand-operated circular metal tool which is operated by turning a handle to break down cooked vegetables which are then passed over a grating disc. A vegetable mill gives a very smooth result and can be used instead of a food processor or blender for puréeing or for preparing baby food, eg place the cooked swede in a vegetable mill and process until smooth.
