I have always sat on the fence with these. When they work they work well but there are so many out there its hard to find a good one that is not over priced.
This was the only one that has excellent reviews and at a fraction of the cost.
Happy mashing.
Some reviews........
HAND HELD POTATO RICER WITH TWO STAINLESS STEEL DISCS
This potato ricer/masher is great! It does what it says and is easy to use and clean! You will make smooth mashed potatoes and wonder why (like I did) it took you so long to get one! Enjoy!

This is a great, no nonsense potato ricer which does exactly what it says on the tin. It easy to clean, sturdy with 2 different size ricers. I only use the smaller one because I want fine mash.
I've never achieved smooth mash before, my family is used to lumps but this makes perfect mash time after time. And for a very reasonable price!

Does the job I bought it for. Turns out fluffy mashed potato's, NO PROBLEM........
It is also handy for making potato cakes and patties. Saves quite a lot of work in preparation.
The one downside is that it has no hook or ring so you can hang it up, as it is quite large to store away.
Mind you, better to be too large than too small. If you need a potato ricer that I personaly dont think
you can bend or break like I have done with metal ones, go ahead and buy this one.

Standard or not, its the cheapest one i could find so its a deal.
Do they have one that will make chips out of rice?

I watched the Sunday cooking show with louise Rednap earlier and they used a ricer not long after i posted the deal. It was one where you can hook it over the bowl that you want the riced potato in. It looked really hard do use the ricer like that and the bloke gave up and held it in his hands in the end.

At least now i know i shouldnt have got one of those. The potato looked so perfect. I cant wait to get mine now. Guess whats for dinner till xmas!

It's a bit like meat grinder, except that you cook the potatoes and then the force the potatoes through the ricer. The potato comes out a bit like rice, you can then stir it a bit into mash. I have loads of different kitchen gadgets and thought a potato ricer would just take up space but it is so much better than trying to mash all the lumps out with a traditional potato masher.

Not at all. No waste, very few people eat every potato in a bag.
The weight you see is the weight you will eat, no peel or dodgy spuds to subtract from the weight.
And the price is not far off anyway: Sainsburys 2.5kg bag is 70p per kilo, sainsburys mash is £1.25 per kilo with no waste.
Hardly in the money to burn category and you save fuel my cooking it for less time in an energy efficient microwave.

I pay around £1 per 2.5kg bag so frozen mash is about nearly 4 times the price. I dread to think whether there will be any nutrition left in frozen mash either.

You would never see frozen mash used in a professional kitchen and the reason is obvious.
Is it not a bit cold?
I used to work for the company that made these, Kitchen Craft (Thomas Plant). You can buy them just about anywhere.
that's smash'ing

Tesco do their own one. Aunt Bessie also do one, sold in lots of places including Iceland. I mainly buy when it is on offer.

Cooking and mashing spuds is not the problem.....it's the peeling which I hate most of all

Means I can rustle up leftovers pie in minutes, cottage / shepherds pies also.

Have also used this to make mustard mash, colcanon etc and nobody has ever noticed. Frozen foods retain the vitamins (confirmed by dieticians). It is the way we cook them that often destroys them.

There are many convenience products I would never dream of using but this was a DELIA CHEAT and has to be one of the best

Where do you see potatoes for £1 for 2.5kg?
Why should there be no nutrition left? That remark shows that you know not a lot.
Kitchens use allsorts, including Smash style flakes.
Where do you get 2.5kg of mashable spuds for £1? Please

Edit, and your sums are wrong too

asda - 2 bags of 2.5kg spuds were £2 on monday when I bought some

More than you when it comes to grammar! Pretty obvious to all but you that freezing food reduces nutrional content.

Kitchens use allsorts, including Smash style flakes.
I said professional ones, not Yates' bars!

Where did I say you could? oO

FYI:-

how do you get them this price ?
Why did the potato cross the road?

He saw a fork up ahead.

oO
2.5kg of potatos can be found at Asda for £1 one are general use the others are for baking. Try using mysupermarket yourself, save yourself a fortune and check your facts before putting others down.

There was nothing wrong with my grammar.
I asked where you could get 2.5kg of potatoes for a pound, you showed me where you could get 5kg of potatoes for £2. Shall I ask again? 5kg is a lot of potatoes and this is taken from the ASDA site and pertains to these potatoes "Country of Origin ; UK. A versatile all-rounder. Our pickers will pick your shopping as if it were their own. That means they will always be searching for the best quality, freshness and date codes available The average shelf life of potatoes is 3 days."
So 5kg of mash in three days?
While you are using ASDA for your comparison a kilo of frozen mash there is £1.14. Hardly money to burn. Is it?
Freezing holds nutrients in, I thought EVERYONE knew that.

Your sarcastic posting of the meaning of the word 'NEARLY' shows how ignorant you are.
Your fresh potatoes are 40p a kilo (if you buy much more than a kilo) and my Sainsburys mash is £1.25 per kilo.

Therefore it is a lot nearer to three times as much as it is four times as much.
3X = £1.20
4X =£1.60

Everything you have said is wrong, you made a mistake, now shut up.

You talking to me?
I did not say they were not available, I asked where they are.

Frozen mashed potato is straight up wrong even if it was cheaper it's still lazy and wrong.

As is pre peeled veg and and already grated cheese.
Gone back up to £9.99, still considering getting one though.
Many thanks, always wanted one of these, just purchased x

It is a matter of personal choice. Your use of the word lazy sounds like something from the 1950's when washing machines became affordable, or the 1970's when continental quilts made it easier to make beds

Would never dream of using pre peeled veg, and I grate all my own cheese.

British Dietetic Association acknowledge that vitamins are retained in tinned and frozen fruit and veg (although I hate tinned veg and would never use them).

Remember when Sainsbury's brought out the pre peeled orange....did not last long. oO
I like the Mash get Smashed with the robots who tell you what Earthlings do to potatoes then laugh.

Make potatos into rice?
Yeah yeah, pull the other one.
No not that other one oO
Oh great. A fight about mashed potatoes.

Have always wanted to see what a ricer puts out vs std masher. For sure they need to be strong though.
Well thats another present sorted, great spotted never knew these existed!
Do any of you potato experts know how to make hash browns? I mean the ones you get for breakfast in American restaurants not those triangle things we have here. I have failed endlessly to make hash browns and someone once told me the best way was using a ricer.
Mash? What a waste of good potatoes!

Potatoes should only ever be enjoyed roasted or as chips.
I've been using a plastic ricer from Lakeland (around £13 - dishwasher safe) for years now and it's been excellent.
I don't see much point in fighting about frozen vs fresh without citing hard evidence (with sources) that one is better in terms of nutrition or quality than another. Being a parent has beaten all such nonsense out of me.
For anyone who like I was (as a student) is tempted to try sticking a boiled potato in a blender to make mash, don't bother unless you're sticking up wallpaper.
can you use these with non cooked potatoes to make potato gems / latkes / tots or whatever you call them in this country?

or like hash browns?
