  1. Hi,

    I bought the adjustable potato ricer at Williams Sonoma. I am having a terrible time attaching the removable disc and attaching it. It has two slots where the disc should fit but I cannot push it on and turn it. Is there something I am doing wrong? Part of the problem is arthritis in my hands. I may have to use it only without being able to adjust it. Thank you

    • Hi! There are two indicators on the side of the ricer. You have to rotate the disc to the arrow mark in order to remove and replace the disc. It does require a bit of muscle to pull it off to clean, which may be difficult with your arthritis. The Williams-Sonoma site has a video showing how to change the settings depending on what type of food you’re ricing, which may also be helpful to you: http://www.williams-sonoma.com/products/oxo-adjustable-potato-ricer/. If you find this ricer difficult to use, OXO also makes a non-adjustable ricer, which can be found on Amazon: http://tinyurl.com/cjtmfkr. Hope I’ve been able to help!

      • Thank you for your answer. I was able to get the disk on by putting it on the counter and pushing with all my weight but it is painful to turn the disk. I can use it without the disk. It is too heavy and cumbersome for me and I may call it a loss and buy the non-adjustable ricer you mentioned. It looks smaller and definitely easier to use. I looked at the reviews on the Williams-Sonoma site. There is a new review I had not seen before from a woman who is also having a terrible time using the adjustable ricer. By the time I have attached the disk and adjusted it I am in a terrible mood. Maybe I’ll stick with my hand held masher. Good luck fellow potato mashers.
