Are you looking for lump free mashed potatoes? Then this Cute Essentials potato ricer and masher is exactly what you need.
All you need to do is boil some potatoes – just as you normally would. Once they are done boiling you take the potato chunks and press them through the ricer very similar to a garlic press motion.
Now why would you do this rather than mash them with a huge potato masher? Because the ricer forces the boiled potatoes through the tiny holes and into a bowl.
You make the mashed potatoes as you normally would with milk, buttermilk, cream, melted butter or whatever ingredients you typically use.
The resulting mashed potato mixture after stirring is a perfectly smooth, velvety mashed potato batch without any hint of a lump. Smooth as smooth can be!
It may seem like a tool you don’t need but in reality it is a very versatile tool. When you mash potatoes (the normal way), the mashing breaks the cells of the potato apart releasing the start that potatoes are packed with. That starch can get gluey and sticky – not so awesome. The potato ricer breaks the potato into tiny pieces rather than mashing and the resulting texture is incredible.
