Potato ricer

The potato ricer is a valuable tool for those who choose to prepare potatoes for mashed potatoes, gnocchi or other recipes, like the potato peeler. It is in fact a sort of press, equipped with a pestle, in which to insert the boiled potatoes (or other ingredients with a soft and pasty consistency): being perforated on the bottom, it allows the potatoes to come out evenly, ready to be used in various types of recipes.

Most of the potato ricer is made of stainless steel, resistant to high temperatures and the pressure needed to mash potatoes, but some also have aluminum elements. The electric potato ricer is among the most recent and useful models in the kitchen, even on a professional level.

The use of the manual potato ricer considerably shortens the preparation times for recipes with potatoes, alternatively you can mash them with a fork in a plate or in a bowl.
