How do you convert polygons to multiple rasters in model builder?

I am attempting to build a process model in model builder and keep getting stuck at a point where I need to convert vector data to raster. Model builder wants to take all of my overlapping polygons and create a single grid. I thought I would be able to use an iterative process in Model Builder to cycle the process through each of the 100+ records (polygons) in my original feature class, but have not been able to do this.

so the question is:

How do I convert a set of polygons to multiple raster files where each polygon results in a single raster?

or

How can I systematically process only one record at a time?
(e.g. run the polygon to raster tool on the first record in a feature class, produce an output grid, and then proceed to the second record etc.)
