It's a flour sifter and it's still in use . You can buy one in Target or Walmart but I've only ever seen them in stainless since I was a child,nnever painted.

It is a sifter to remove boll weevils and other bugs from your flower, and some receipts call for sifted flower.

I like to cook, and I have one that's pretty old. I still use it sometimes on some of the older recipes that call for "sifted flour". I'm one of those Type-A people that follows everything to the letter in the kitchen. lol

A flour sifter. I remember using them before. Still in use, but not as common as before. Costs about $10.00 by Amazon!

A sifter for flour, powdered sugar, and other similar things. An absolutely essential tool in good baking from scratch.
