My sister was raving about the Martha Stuart potato ricer she got on sale at Macy's. I discovered the reason they marked it down from $24.99 to $7. The thing doesn't work. Perhaps it works if you're willing to take a lot of time to put in a few cubes of potato at a time that have been boiled in anticipation of mashed potatoes.
Last night I had decided to make home made mashed potatoes. I decided to use the new ricer that I just had to get (got the last one at Macy's yesterday and had to wait in line for a long time to check it out).
The thing was awful. It took forever and I only had done one potato. I just got out my old potato masher from my mom and did the whole pot in a few minutes.
The potato ricer is back in the car, waiting to be returned to Macy's.
Maybe I was doing something wrong, but I had peeled them (my sis said it worked better than trying to get the peels tghrough that ricer thing), had the potatoes soft and didn't overcrowd the little cup thing from the ricer.
I guess I just don't have the patience for a ricer. SR did seem to enjoy the taters. There were no leftovers. :D
