Edith A.: I usually love the OXO Good Grips line of kitchen tools, but this one let me down. The bowl is smaller than my old plastic ricer, and the handle isn't as long, so it's harder to squeeze. I thought the stainless steel would work better, but my old plastic one is easier and more efficient, especially when I make a half-gallon of homemade applesouce. I'll keep this one as a backup for smaller jobs and softer foods.
E. Laneville: This tool is a must-have for preparing mashed potatoes. It takes all of the effort and lumps out of making perfect mashed potatoes.A little bit of potatoes can squeeze out from the top of the lid as you push it down (which is why I only gave 4 stars) but since the gap is so narrow, what squeezes out is also "mashed" so it can be thrown in with the rest of the potatoes.My girlfriend complained that it is a little hard to squeeze when packed to the rim with potatoes, but this can be controlled by putting less potatoes in it each time.Overall an excellent product. Very easy to clean.
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!
