Mastering Mashed Potatoes

I have been making mashed potatoes with a potato ricer for years! I will never do it without one again. This is the ultimate way to make lump-free, smooth and tasty mashed potatoes. Perfect timing for Thanksgiving coming up, wouldn't you say?

I recently bought my second Potato Ricer on Amazonsince I am giving my first one to my daughter. It is stainless steel so I figure this one will be more sturdy.

For those of you who aren't familiar with ricers, I simply boil my potatoes, then place them into the vessel (yes, with peels still on) and smash them through the strainer. And BAM! Lump-free potatoes. They come out stringy looking. Kinda fun. My favorite disc to use is the small-holed one.

I then add nearly a can of evaporated milk, depending on the amount I am fixing and a cube of butter and then add kosher salt and freshly ground pepper to taste. Then, with a hand mixer I stir away.
My mouth is watering just thinking about it.

Potato Ricers will certainly change your way of making potatoes -- it did ours! Let me know what you think!
Psst! For a great roast beef recipe to accompany these potatoes check this one out. For light and fluffy white rolls, go here.
