friday freebie: endurance potato ricer [closed]

Posted on Nov 9, 2012 in Food, Uncategorized

–Entries on this contest are now CLOSED. Thanks for participating!–

As we chatted about yesterday, Thanksgiving is coming up at a super rapid clip and boy, do I have a kitchen gadget to give away today that will make your life so much easier! The amazing folks at BigKitchen.com are partnering with BTHR again to give away a few awesome things this holiday season (stay tuned for another cool giveaway from them at the end of November).

To celebrate Thanksgiving, BigKitchen is giving away this super pimped-out, heavy duty, ass-kicking Endurance potato ricer. Never used a potato ricer? Well, it’s the key to pretty much the smoothest, silkiest, easiest mashed potatoes of your life. It’s basically a ginormous garlic press. Stick a cooked potato in, out comes fluffy, smooth mashed potato just asking for some butter, cream and a hefty dose of salt (please don’t undersalt your potatoes).

I used my potato ricer at Canadian Thanksgiving this year and it made super quick work of potatoes for 12 people. What would normally take some serious mashing time was done in a minute or two, and the results were totally lump-free and super smooth.

I’m not a big fan of kitchen unitaskers, and a while a potato ricer is meant to help with spuds, it has a million other uses. Need to squeeze out that frozen spinach? Put it in the potato ricer. Want to make gnocchi? The potato ricer is where it’s at. You can use it to puree almost any soft food (tomatoes, pumpkin, anything!) without any electric power.

If you can’t tell, I’m a big fan of my potato ricer. Ready to win one?

  1. I add butter, salt and pepper, and half and half. Yum.

  2. I love garlic and cheese!

  3. Cassie, your potatoes look delicious. I have never used a potato ricer, but I have seen, Barefoot Contessa, on the Food Network use one. I use a KA mixer, I also use Carnation can milk, real butter, and a little, of the water that the potatoes are cooked in. Sometime I will use sour cream instead of the can milk. I always snip some fresh chives on top of the mashed potatoes before serving.

  4. 2 tbs per pound of potatoes! Yummy!

    My husband loves his potatoes in a river. Since I am trying to eliminate processed foods I want to win this so the gross Potato Buds he eats can leave the house.

  5. That is cream cheese- btw
