Product Description

This innovative Potato Masher lets you make smooth mashed potatoes with less pressure on your hands. A broad, soft, horizontal handle lets you press straight down while it cushions your grip and absorbs pressure. A fine-grid, stainless steel mashing plate yields smooth mashed potatoes with no lumps. This tool is also ideal for mashing yams, carrots, or other root vegetables, or for making homemade baby food by mashing apples or bananas.

Amazon.com

What, no lumps? If you prefer the homemade texture of mashed root vegetables but without the chunks, this is the tool you've been searching for. With its broad, stainless-steel head, potatoes are mashed evenly through a fine grid. It's also great for other mashable vegetables and fruits, as well as for making baby food. The Good Grips line features durable, nonslip flexible handles on every product. Ergonomically designed to fit the palm comfortably and softly, the pressure-absorbing processed rubber handle puts less tension on the hands, while providing an outstanding grip. Made from the same material as dishwasher gaskets are constructed of, the handles are slip-proof, wet or dry, as well as dishwasher-safe. Good Grips products are moderately priced and have won the Tylenol/Arthritis Foundation Design Award. --Laurie Notaro

Finally I can make mashed potatoes without using my mixer. I am a quadriplegic/tetraplegic (C5-6 for thos who care) and I can use this tool. Traditional potato mashers just require more grip than I have in my hand. Plus the horizontal handle makes the pushing easier, as well.
My mother with mild arthritis likes this as well as her traditional masher.
As with most Oxo tools it is highly ergonomic: it fits the hand and does the job it's supposed to.

There's nothing quite like fresh mashed potatoes, and with this masher, it's an easy treat to make. The comfy horizontal grip on this potato masher makes it easier to use than the traditional vertical handled ones. You can really put your muscle into the mashing without having to develop huge forearms holding onto it. It has never let me down, very reliable, I've even used it when the electricity is out.
My only complaint would be that if you're doing a lot of potatoes and have large hands, you might get some on your knuckles as you repeatedly crush the helpless vegetables. This is only a minor annoyance though, and if you're in the market for a potato masher, you'd be hard pressed to do better.

Far superior to a vertical masher, I love this masher! Its short handle helps you to avoid slipping around the potatoes when you're mashing and you can throw your weight into it, so to speak. The grip is easy on your hand, and clean-up is a snap.

I couldn't be more pleased. Highly recommended.

I have mild arthritis in my hands and always had a rough time with typical mashers.

I LOVE this masher! I will never go back to the vertical type!

It's also perfect for making frijoles refritos!

There are four spot welds on each side of the handles that attach to the masher, my last WMF ricer-style masher failed at these points because it only had one on each side. The OXO is true to its name, easy to grip. It may take a couple of times to get used to holding your hand horizontally rather than vertically, but it is much less tiring. Model 34581 will only do so much, as your knuckles will touch the food if you are doing a great quantity, but easily works on my usual quantity of 2-5 hand-sized spuds. I have also used it to break up tomatoes and look forward to using it on fresh peaches prepared for our annual ice cream crank. Hard to find a good spot for it in the dish-washer and drawer, forget about storing it in a container on the counter with other handy tools if that is your style.

This does mash nicely, but if you use it in more than a very small pan, you get your fingers covered with potatoes! The handle is really too short, and I don't actually find it ergonomic. It makes you get in a slightly strange position, since your hand has to be clenched on the top rather than gripping from the side. I'm buying something else!

This is an excellent masher. If you're doing skin on potatoes it clogs up slightly - but still made short work of a few batches of mashed potatoes (with and without skin) & mashing up sweet potatoes for another dish.

The one flaw of the design? It's short handle. However, it's not a deal breaker. In fact - the plus-es of this more than made up for it's sole shortcoming. My old masher (vertical handle) was about the same height and had the same issue.

There's only one masher I've used that I liked as much as this one - but it was literally twice the price (it's a Cuisinart model). However, I would still choose this one over that other model because there was no hand fatigue with the Oxo. My family loves mashed potatoes and when I make them I make a lot. This was definitely put through some trials for Thanksgiving. I'm looking forward to using it for Christmas, and for meals in between.

Finally, a hybrid between a ricer & the old "wavy-wire" tool your mother used.
