  • Details
    This is a made in Michigan by Handy Things metal potato ricer, a mega charming vintage kitchen tool, but not a thing that wants to be appreciated just for its beauty, but for its truly superior performance in being able to turn out the best homemade mashed potatoes imaginable.

    The older ladies in my family wouldn't have thought of making mashed potatoes any other way than starting the processing of the peeled and boiled potatoes with mashing them through the holes of this heavy metal ricer basket. Some of the ladies might have gone on to fluff the potatoes with hand mixer after adding milk and butter, but they would never skip the ricing step.

    And this particular ricer has the unique provenance of having belonged to one of the 1940s brides from my own family. I was able to eat her wonderful mashed potatoes many times over the years before she passed away and this became part of her estate. I am thus hoping to pass this ricer on to another wonderful cook who will find it still works well despite its obvious history, or who just wants to incorporate it into her charming farmhouse kitchen decor that pays homage to our wonderful cooks of the past. I can assure her this one belonged to a wonderful cook.

    11" long x 4" high Well loved and beautiful vintage condition.
