Hello, I am new to this forum. I have a question about food mills. I do not own one and I am wondering if it is really necessary for me to buy one. It occurs to me that the same things could be accomplished with a food processor and by pushing the food through a metal or wire strainer with a spatula. I cook mostly Italian and French dishes, sometimes Greek. I would like to know everyone's thoughts on the matter before I acquire a new gadget that will cost money and take up room in my already somewhat-small kitchen. Thank you.
