- That's how "passieren" originates (pass through a strainer), but today the terms are pretty much used interchangeably. That's the kind of thing we could mention in the "usage" field. --Tosca 19:54, 28 January 2010 (UTC)
- Are they? Well, if that's the case (and I am not convinced *) then we should mention it in the usage field as you suggest and additionally create two more DMs that distinguish between "pürieren" (as in blending in an electric mixer), and "passieren" as passing something through a strainer.
- * The DWDS does not think so either: "2. etw. durch ein Sieb drücken, pressen", and in fact, though the result might often look alike, the process and the resulting product is not at all the same and sometimes it is crucial not to confuse these two things as "passieren", in opposite to "pürieren", is much more conserving or sparing and/or does filter out more coarse things. --dh 04:55, 30 January 2010 (UTC)
