Perfect for light-duty tasks, such as creating a few servings of smooth and creamy mashed potatoes, this economy stainless steel potato ricer is simple and easy to use. Boiled potatoes are packed with starch. Mashing them breaks the cells apart and releases that starch, and if you mash them too much, the starch gets gluey. This manual potato ricer breaks up potatoes into the smallest pieces with the least amount of motion, giving you great, fluffy texture. Constructed of durable stainless steel, the ricer resists corrosion and is easy to clean. With a generous 12-Oz. capacity, the ricer is perfect for making sizable individual portions. Use it for pressing water out of cooked spinach before adding it to a dish, or making a smooth deviled egg filling. The round, stainless steel ricer for mashed potatoes measures 10" x 4" x 5-1/4".
