I lost the directions between opening the package, washing all the bits and pieces, and finally using the food mill a couple of weeks later. I wasn't concerned, as I'd used a food mill before. After fooling around with the thing for a while, I finally had to look around online to see how to put it together. There is NO help on the product website. I found my answer on a forum of other moms talking about this food mill. I got the parts together in the right way, and it worked well enough. I find it a bit difficult to put enough pressure on the top part to keep the food pressing up into the grinder. If my hand is on top of the bowl to press down, it is in the way of the crank. Holding the stem, it is hard to press down very much. If I put something in it that has any amount of juice in it, some of the juice runs out of the bottom. My other issue is that it is hard to get the screen to release from the bowl after I am finished using it. I have to put some sort of pointed object (fork tine, etc) in one of the holes and turn it with that. I stopped using forks, because they keep bending - it takes that much force to get the screen to turn. I am not a feeble person. I just think this item needs a bit more work in the design area.
