"If you've never experienced a potato ricer, it's not too late to make up for lost time. This simple implement doesn't have a digital clock, doesn't blink when it's ready, and doesn't have a tiny computer chip imbedded in it to do all the work.

And be sure to try the ricer with other root vegetables, such as carrots, yams, and turnips." ~C. Whitney-Ward
