Truthfully, until a couple of years ago, when a friend on the Gardenweb Kitchen Forum saw one of them in a photo and referred to it in that term, I called it the "applesauce making thing with the other thing sort of like a bat." According to Amazon, it's a Canning Accessories Food Press with Wooden Pestle.

But by the time I'd started on the first batch, I wondered if I was passing up the opportunity to use something better (AKA "faster"), and called to accept her offer.
After a false start for Prince CuddleBunny, who had initially attached the wire thingy on the bottom of the mill upside down, but didn't have an excitingly successful outing even after it was fixed, I thought it was time to put them through a side-by-side test.
