Do you know what this is? Are you thinking it looks like a large garlic press? Well if you guessed a vintage potato ricer, you are correct! The ricer lets you turn your cooked potatoes (and other vegetables) into a rice-like consistency. Simply peel and cook your potatoes and when done, cut them into chunks small enough to fit in your ricer, press down on the handle and voila! Little riced potatoes. Commonly used years ago to help mash your potatoes, but also great to puree food for babies. Potatoes were a staple years ago and rice was not - mothers often used this tool to give a new texture to the often hum drum potato. Found in antique markets everywhere and usually priced under $15. Why use one today? You will have to try it for yourself and see just how light and fluffy your potatoes can be!
