Priority Chef Potato Ricer Review


Until recently, I had never heard of a potato ricer. I didn't know there was such a thing. I received the Priority Chef Potato Ricer to review. This is a really cool tool! 

I haven't used it on other vegetables yet, but I love what it does for potatoes! It produced light, fluffy mashed potatoes and it mashed them so completely, there was only the skins left! 

Potatoes are a very starchy food and the more you mix, mash and mess with them, the more glutinous they become. With a ricer, you get mashed potatoes with fewer steps so they are less processed. You also don't have beat them to death trying to get all the lumps out because there are none!

This was a different texture than I am used to, but I really liked them! I have never used a ricer before so I searched for ways to use it with potatoes. I was sold when I came across some instructions that said I didn't have to peel the potatoes. That was the one for me!
I cut the potatoes into chunks and then I boiled them in salted water until a fork went into them easily and without effort. When they were done, I put the chunks into the ricer, skins and all. Then I just mashed away! 

All that was left after each pressing was some very flat potato skins. I peeled them right out of the basket and pressed some more chunks. 
The ricer was very easy to use. I had to use both hands to get the squeeze started because the handles are initially a little far apart and my hands aren't very big, but it was super easy. The silicone grips help to hold it so your hands don't slip while squeezing. The presser part slides smoothly into the basket and mashes quickly. 

My son is a few years past baby food, but I truly wish I had been aware of these tools when he was a baby! I would have been making all kinds of baby foods for him if I had! You can mash your own veggies and mix to create unique flavors so you know what you're feeding your baby.
Only potato skins left

The ricer is of high grade stainless steel so it is sturdy, but also very easy to clean. I have washed mine by hand, but it is also dishwasher safe. 

This ricer is a well made, high quality tool. Whether you just want a new way to make potatoes or you want to make your own baby food, this will do the job for a long, long time.
