My fantastic funnel

I know that’s sort of high praise for a lowly funnel, but I really do love mine.

I use it nearly every week when I’m making yogurt, and lately, I’ve been using it to fill jars with applesauce.

I used to have a flimsy plastic funnel with a snipped-off end, so last Christmas, I put this funnel on my list.

(Shut up. Funnels are indeed Christmas present material, at least when they’re this nice. ;))

A lovely feature of this funnel is that it works with wide-mouth or narrow-mouth jars.

And because it comes with a removable mesh filter, it’s perfect for things like straining broth or pouring milk into jars for making yogurt (it strains out any solids.)

I really, really like that it’s not plastic, both because it will last longer and because I feel totally comfortable pouring hot liquids (like broth) through it. No melting worries!

The funnel is made by Kuchenprofi, and it’s $22 on Amazon. I know that seems like sort of a lot of money for a funnel, but hey, it should be the last one you need to buy, and if you find yourself pouring stuff into jars much, I think you’d love the Kuchenprofi as much as I do.

(There are other, less expensive stainless steel funnels available, like this Norpro Funnel, which costs less than $9, but the cheaper ones tend not to come with a strainer, and some people have complained about things like the handle falling off. In the grand scheme of things, the extra $13 for the Kuchenprofi seems worth it to me.)

P.S. Speaking of stainless steel kitchen tools, while I was making applesauce, I was reminded again how very much I still love my stainless steel ladle (which happened to be the topic of an adoring post a while back. ) What can I say? Stainless steel kitchen tools make my heart go pitter-pat.

hi! I don't know if you have posted something about it before but was wondering if you could do a how-to on your applesauce? I tried some homemade pearsauce recently and loved it! I have a hard time eating store bought applesauce cause most of the cinnamon ones have high fructose corn syrup in them and I am trying to stay away from that. I bought the jars and such but I am too afraid I will mess up!

Great post! I have a friend who actually stopped buying music on iTunes and started buying physical CDs and records again. She noted that she didn't appreciate music enough when she could just get it on a whim, and soon her computer was overflowing with gigs of music files. Now she researches an album and appreciates the physicality (and how it takes up room in her house) associated with buying and listening.

Loved this informative post--would you consider doing one post that listed all the equipment you loved and where you purchased it? I am in the market for some good cookware, baking pans and possibly a food dehydrator and don't mind the idea of spending more for quality equipment. All great Christmas presents yes? I'm sure there are many others who would appreciate this info as well.

Hey, useful presents are the best presents! I've taken to telling my husband exactly. what. I. want. for every gift-giving occasion, because otherwise he goes out and buys really expensive, really pretty jewelry that I don't feel comfortable wearing. For my birthday, I got bobby pins and a cheap digital wristwatch. For Christmas, I found an immersion blender on clearance and used a 20% off coupon that made it $16 for a really good brand. Sure, I bought my own present, but I know full well Hubby would have walked in the store, picked up the first one with the highest price tag, and paid for it without batting an eye. For our anniversary, I intend to ask for a pack of ballpoint pens that are NOT gel, and new highlighters.

Not gonna lie, I thought long and hard before I decided to leave that in there. I don't ever say shut up in a serious way, only in a joking way, and I wanted to make sure that it came across like that. :)

My latest kitchen purchase was Silpat liners. They are already wonderful.
