    Mashing Potatoes with a Food Mill

    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.

        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 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. :-)
