Read a wonderful Amazon.com review of the joys of using a potato ricer:

"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. It takes a bit of pressing and squeezing, but the light and airy potatoes that result will be both memorable and worth the work. And be sure to try the ricer with other root vegetables, such as carrots, yams, and turnips." ~C. Whitney-Ward
