Potato ricers and food mills are the tools to use for silky-smooth potato purées, but sometimes I’m in the mood for more rustic, country-style mashed potatoes, and sometimes I like to leave the potato skins on. That’s when this potato masher comes in handy.

Unlike single-plate mashers, this spring-loaded double-plate masher folds and fluffs the potatoes as it mashes them, resulting in a deliciously light yet substantial consistency. And of course, it works just as well for mashing other root vegetables and for making chunky applesauce or other fruit sauces. Because of its sturdy design and 18/8 stainless-steel construction, this should be the last potato masher you’ll ever need to buy. Sur La Table sells the masher for about $12 in its stores. Or order online at www.surlatable.com, or by calling 800-243-0852.
