Best Flour Duster


Evenly floured surfaces

This flour duster allows for remarkably light and even dusting of dough or a work surface. You simply squeeze the wire handle, which expands the spring bulb so that the wires have space between them. Stick it in a bag of flour, stop squeezing and the spring bulb closes around a golf-ball-sized wad of flour. Then, shake it over a work surface squeezing gently — I tap it over my free hand ala David Byrne’s “Once in a Lifetime” — and voilà: A very even dusting is achieved. I’ve used this flour duster for five years, and have found nothing else that can compete.
