It is a potato ricer. I have wanted one for a long time.
We eat a lot of mashed potatoes around here, we love them. I usually just use the old school hand masher, which works fine, but this cool tool is amazing!
This one came from Lee Valley, but you can get them at most kitchen stores.
Just fill the hopper with some cooked potatoes.
Then flip the little pusher dealy over top of the taters.
Press the handle and look at that! It is like a play dough fun factory!
Once you are all done you end up with a pile of perfectly smooth smashed potatoes. Stir in some butter and cream or buttermilk, salt and pepper and there you have it.
A big bowl of light fluffy mashed potatoes, no lumps, they aren't gluey.
Mashed potato perfection!
Excuse me while I curl up on the couch and eat this giant bowl of buttery mashed potatoes. Like I need more carbs after the last couple of days, oh well!
Have a great weekend everyone!
