O.K. I bought one of these a few months ago on line. The flavour of riced potatoes is very different than that of peeled mashed and most of the vitamins and nutrition is right at the skin. This unit looked powerful enough to squeeze water out of a stone.
It probably would if more than a tenth of the potato came through the ricer ... all the rest of it jams up behind the presser plate and just gets crushed not 'riced' ... It's a Boat Anchor as far as I'm concerned .. find us a better one Kitchen Contraptions ... the funnel's no good for this purpose either ... you don't want it fine and you do want the skin to get through albiet in small pieces. jccampb
