I made the pefect lumpy potatoes with this. Sounds odd, but that's what I wanted. I have a ricer, but I wanted the mashed potatoes from my childhood. I went out and bought this specifically for the task. I have no regrets or complaints. The handle felt fine, better than what my mother used to have. I remember hers having more mashing surface, but that may be because I was young. This one seems compact, so it works fine for a small amount of potatoes in a smaller bowl (perfect for me.)

If you want ultra smooth, this isn't the product for you. Get the Oxo ricer.

This wire potato masher, like the rest of the products from the OXO Good Grips line, is a great value of superior quality, unsurpassed durability, and flawless performance. Its ergonomic design, hefty body, and big, pressure-absorbing, non-slip grip, complete with flexible fins to accommodate your fingers, are the reasons why you'll prefer this product over the more traditional models, as they will allow you comfortable, daily, wet or dry use while keeping you away from any stress-related injuries.
Its elegant, stylized shape fits seamlessly with the rest of the OXO Good Grips collection, and it also comes with an oversized hole at the tip of the handle for easy hanging, and a strong, stout double-wire neck guaranteed to be unbendable.
Overall, this masher is perfect to mash potatoes, apples, pumpkins, carrots and other such foods, especially handy if you have a baby in the house. Its easy-to-clean, simple construction and dishwasher-safe, hard-wearing materials make it an addition that will prove a dependable part of your cooking equipment for years. Furthermore, its stainless-steel metal parts will permanently keep your rust worries away.
After submitting this product to over two years of normal, everyday use, mine is still just like new.

Nothing fancy, just mashin' action. I would give it 5 stars if the handle was a bit more comfortable (just hard plastic as opposed to something more comfortable, but it's not like you use it that much) and if the design was closer to the honeycomb open-hole idea instead of the curvy wires, which leave more lumps in your mashed potatoes. But really, if you want perfectly lump-free mashed potatoes, you should be using a ricer, not a masher.

This "potato masher" is perfect if you like "smashed" potatoes rather than mashed, and you like to leave the skin on your potatoes. I had the kind with the flat head and holes and it works fine for peeled potatoes. If I left the peels on, they got stuck in the holes and I kept having to clean them out. You also end up with smooth potatoes rather than lumpy like I prefer. So I purchased this "masher" and couldn't be happier. It makes perfect "smashed" potatoes and any other root vegetables. The other thing I use it for (and one reason why I bought this kind of masher) is to break up hamburger or sausage in a frying pan. It works so much better (and faster) than a wooden spoon. Just be careful if you are using a non-stick pan not to scrape the bottom of the pan. Another good use for this masher is to break up whole tomatoes from a can. Just dump them into a bowl and mash away.

Like all other Oxo products, this masher is well made and will probably last for a very long time.

This masher is very good. It's very durable and simple to use. I use to use a spoon to mash potatoes and it hurt and took forever. With this, it takes me less than 3 minutes to mash it. The grip is fantastic and so is the stainless steel wires.

Great sturdy design!! The handle is well made, soft on the hands, good non-slip grip but yet durable. The heavy duty stainless steel designed wire mesh does every job perfect.

This really is the perfect masher - just like the one my mum had... I've tried every "new and improved" masher on the planet without success - until now. Works quickly to mash loads of spuds without undue effort or mess. Oxo has merely added a comfortable handle and weight to the tried and tested masher.

Honestly I thought ok I'll pay a bit more and it will be so nice. Not true my old cheap one works just as good IMO. Although the handle is really nice.

I bought this here masher about two months ago, and I've been eating mashed potatoes every day, so its gotten some good use. However, I've found that with such frequent use, the masher is getting a bit mis-shapen. It also started to rust after a few cycles in the washing machine, which was unexpected! Not sure if I'm doing something wrong or what, but I was pretty disappointed in this masher. I'd definitely invest in a better masher in the future!
