If you actually want a piece of kitchen ware that will last do not buy this product. Out of the packaging it looks sturdy. Solid metal basket with metal arm. Then after about a weeks usage you start to notice the neck of the product is so thin that you are bending the arm by everyday use. I've had this product for about 10 days and I hope to get another 20 out of it. Spend the extra $15-20 and stay away from this cheap Chinese product.

This is the first potato ricer I've owned, so I'm not an expert, but this ricer feels well-built, much more so than a model I found in a Target store (can't remember the brand). The handles on this model have little give even under a lot of pressure. It works well to remove excess water from grated potatoes for hash browns, which is what I bought it for.

My daughter has been on a mashed potato kick lately. She's only 15, so I decided to buy this to make them easier for her to prepare. (And less lumpy)

It really is a very simple tool. We boil our potatoes until soft, drain and then add back to the hot pan to remove any excess moisture. Then one by one add them to the ricer and squeeze the handles closed over a mixing bowl. Repeat until done and if any potato has tried to come up the sides, just scrape them down into the ricer before adding the next potato. After that it's up to your taste. We mix in warmed half & half, salt, pepper, melted butter and sometimes a little bit of cream cheese.

As long as we've used the Norpro Potato Ricer we've had delicious lump free mashed potatoes!!

This is just like the one I inherited from my mom which is about 40 or 50 years old...only this one is easier to clean. If you have trouble getting cooked potatoes through cook them a little longer and only fill ricer halfway.

This ricer is mediocre. The handle is large and difficult for my hands to get good leverage for ricing.
The main problem is the fit of the press into the sieve. Gaps in the side cause food to leak out as your press, creating a lot of waste. The press fails to tightly press to the base also creating a wasteful gap.
Poorly constructed. It works but not well.

I bought this because it appeared simple and strong. I'm retired and learning about herbal preparations, for fun and home use. Some of the recipes casually approached the final steps of how-to's with "wring out until dry." I do not have the strength of youth, and the idea of wringing out the soaked or boiled herbs by hand did not appeal to me. However, I could briefly squeeze the handles of the potato ricer pretty well. So, I lined the ricer 'cup' with a couple layers of cheese cloth, poured the herbs into the cup, folded the outside edges in and squeezed until I wheezed. The result? Almost dry and good return of fluids. Then I poured some hot water into a container and dipped the big 'tea bag' into it for several minutes and repeated the squeeze until dry. Neat clean operation, easy to clean tool and simple enough to operate without instructions. Probably would work with potatoes too, but we eat them with the skins, so the ricer would likely clog on the skins.

It worked fairly well and seems faster with the side holes, but after going metal to metal, there was still about 1/4 inch left in the bowl part. The piston didn't push down far enough. With some metal bending I could get it to go far enough, but most people don't have a tool shop available. I might check out one of the fancier kitchen stores to see if they have better ones but for now I'm experimenting and just needed a basic, simple ricer.

Other than that problem, it works well and fast to produce the "ricer" textured potatoes (or steamed cauliflower or boiled eggs).

I haven't had it that long but it seems sturdy enough.

Well I didn't buy it from amazon, and actually I didn't even buy it, my mother did, and this thing still sucks. We got it to primarily use it to strain the water out from potato shreds for hash browns. The handle bent after the second try and on top of that leaves a big gap that makes it harder to remove the excess water/starch. I wasn't even applying much force when the handle completely bent/broke on me.

For making mashed potatoes this ricer should work but I would go ahead and buy a higher quality item, one that will actually last.

Overall, DON'T BUY!!! There are better ricers out there, go ahead and spend the extra few bucks, you will not regret it, but you will if you purchase this.
