My Latest Toy: OXO Adjustable Potato Ricer

Say hello to my latest kitchen gadget:

After lots of thought, I finally decided to buy a potato ricer. What’s it used for? Potato ricers help you achieve the fluffiest, lump-free mashed potatoes you can imagine. You can also use it to rice potatoes to make gnocchi, which I hope to learn to do one day. The ricer shown above, made my OXO, is available exclusively at Williams-Sonoma. It has an adjustable disk that allows you to switch from fine to medium to coarse settings. With Thanksgiving coming up, I wanted to make sure my mashed potatoes were smooth, buttery and delicious. I’ll let you know how they turn out!
