This innovative Potato Masher lets you make smooth mashed potatoes with less pressure on your hands. A broad, soft, horizontal handle lets you press straight down while it cushions your grip and absorbs pressure. A fine-grid, stainless steel mashing plate yields smooth mashed potatoes with no lumps. This tool is also ideal for mashing yams, carrots, or other root vegetables, or for making homemade baby food by mashing apples or bananas.
What, no lumps? If you prefer the homemade texture of mashed root vegetables but without the chunks, this is the tool you've been searching for. With its broad, stainless-steel head, potatoes are mashed evenly through a fine grid. It's also great for other mashable vegetables and fruits, as well as for making baby food. The Good Grips line features durable, nonslip flexible handles on every product. Ergonomically designed to fit the palm comfortably and softly, the pressure-absorbing processed rubber handle puts less tension on the hands, while providing an outstanding grip. Made from the same material as dishwasher gaskets are constructed of, the handles are slip-proof, wet or dry, as well as dishwasher-safe. Good Grips products are moderately priced and have won the Tylenol/Arthritis Foundation Design Award. --Laurie Notaro
