Enamelation !: The linkage did not seem to transfer full arm pressure to level disk pressure. There's something missing in the angle of delivery. Since the disk travels down the cylinder at an angle - smushed potatoes squish up around the edge. When you lift the arm to reload the stuff that oozed over the plate falls off on the counter. I expected better mechanical advantage in the lever setup.
FrogLady: My only gripe with this ricer is that some of the potato squishes out over the lid when pressing down on the contents. I don't think it matters how much or little is in the canister, it's just the way it works. Other than that, the handles are easy to use and give you great leverage when ricing, even if the potatoes are a little firm. If you've never used a ricer before, go ahead and get this -- you'll get much fluffier mashed potatoes than by using a masher.
Gatzpup: Thanks to the Food Network channel, I now know about ricing potatoes! After watching the television cooks do it, I decided to try it out for myself and choose this Oxo Good Grips Ricer. I'm very pleased with my purchase. The size is perfect. Many people have commented that it is too small, but I can get through 5 pounds of potatoes in no time at all. In fact, after the comments about it's size, I was expecting it to be smaller than it actually was. The handle is comfortable. I don't usually sit it directly on the bowl or pot when ricing, but you could easily do that if you had trouble gripping the handle and just push down on the lever instead of gripping. My 10 year old son likes to cook with me and he has to use that method (he can't grip it). I included a photo so you could see it's size in relation to my hands. The potatoes come out perfect - no lumps (although I hear some people actually LIKE lumps?). Anyway, this is a terrific ricer - clean up is easy too. A simple rinse gets most of the potato residue off and then I put it in the dishwasher!
Genell S. Baun: Once you use the potato ricer, you will never go back to traditional mashed potato methods again. Use that extra time you save to concentrate more on the main dish. Clean up is a breeze. Does not rust in the dishwasher.
Grant E. Smith "The Big Guy": I used it for mashed potatoes for Christmas dinner. I had quite a pile of potatoes and went through them in a jiffy. The riced potatoes are excellent.
