    Mashing Potatoes with a Food Mill

    Anyone tried this? I got an Oxo GoodGrips food mill for Christmas and was thinking about using it for the mashed potatoes tonight.

    I have Chinois but, I think I want a food mill at some point. Here is a good article though y0u may enjoy. I’ve kept it bookmarked.

      Beat me to it, that article is very good.

    Depends on how you like them. Those things are great if you like the steakhouse mash thats almost a puree. If you like a little bit of chunk then id skip.


      We have a food mill and I may try to convince my wife to use it today, she usually uses a potato masher and she likes to add milk and butter to her potatoes. We are cooking a small Turkey today in the oven with dressing, I would sooner smoke it.

        Along with milk and butter we add twoish tablespoons of sour cream to bum it up a notch

      I use a ricer, love it.


        To us homemade mashed potatoes needs lumps so we continue to hand mash or rice the potatoes. To each their own so enjoy.

          Agreed, I like my mashed with some chunks, y'know something you can bite into.
          The rest of the ingrates you'd swear all had broken jaws and need to suck them thru a straw.

          I love being called an ingrate. Nothing more Merry on Christmas…. Lol.

        I prefer hand mashed. A bit more rustic, a little less fussy.


          The food mill worked really well and my wife loved the texture while I tend to prefer the hand mashed texture. Also, a lot easier to clean a hand masher than a food mill. Good thing I didn't get the food mill specifically for mashed potatoes. :-)

          The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

          Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

          Comprehensive Temperature Magnet With 80+ Important Temps

          Amazingribs.com temperature magnet
          Winner of the National BBQ Association’s product of the year award. This 8.5″ x 11″ magnet contains more that 80 benchmark temperatures for meats (both USDA recommended temps as well as the temps chefs recommend), fats and oils, sugars, sous vide, eggs, collagens, wood combustion, breads, and more. Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.

          The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

          The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
