Warmhoming Potato Ricer



VIDEO CONTENTS:I demonstrate how to “rice” potatoes for making mashed potatoes. Basically, I boiled some Yukon Gold potatoes and then inserted them into the potato ricer. After that, I threw in some ingredients (I like experimenting with different recipes) and…Voila, the mashed potatoes are ready!

BACKGROUND FOR MY ORDER:Before ordering this, I had never used a potato ricer before. I wasn’t sure if it made a difference in mashed potatoes, but it intrigued me. I wanted to give it a try. After receiving and using this, it reminded me of using one of those contraptions with Play-Doh as a kid. It’s kind of neat to use! My little one is still nursing, so I haven't yet used it to make baby food.

REVIEW:This is quite simple to operate. I have decent size hands. If you have small hands, you may not want to fill the potatoes up to the top before squeezing, because the handle will be spread too far apart. However full you decide to fill the ricer, you will undoubtedly get the hang of it quickly. Other than that, operating is self-intuitive and easy.

The potatoes come out light, airy, and fluffy. They don’t have any lumps. I haven’t used Russet potatoes with the ricer, so it’s possible that might affect whether it has lumps. However, I had zero lumps with my usual Yukon Gold potatoes.

WHO IS THIS PRODUCT MEANT FOR?If you routinely make mashed potatoes, this is a really cool and useful contraption. It definitely gets rid of the lumps! Mashed potatoes come out very fluffy! Of course, if you like to use dishwasher, this can be cleaned that way.

WHO IS THIS POTATO RICER NOT INTENDED FOR?If you don’t make baby food or mashed potatoes often, it probably doesn’t make sense to have this gadget. This ricer does not come with other attachments, or discs, for using with a variety of foods. Also, it is on the large size at roughly a foot long, so keep that in mind if you have little storage.

  1. Thanks for the review. I have wondered about a potato ricer. Nice to see it in action. I actually use my KitchenAid for mashed potatoes (and everything else). I wonder what a side by side comparison would taste like.

    1. I've used my KitchenAid in the past, but I used to use Russet potatoes. I switched to Yukon Gold when I started using this potato ricer. The Russet potatoes always had some lumps. The Yukon Gold didn't have any. I don't think I changed anything other than the potato and kitchen tool. Who knows, maybe I cooked them longer?
