Reviews forOld-Fashioned Riced Potatoes
"I spent Summers with my Aunt and she always riced them. I have a ricer-need to get it out.Did not know stores still sell them."
"These potatoes are light and fluffy as a cloud! Much lighter than mashed. I had to buy a potato ricer at a dept store, though, but it was worth it as it made short, easy work of the ricing. I love potatoes, any way they're made, but this is the first time I've seen this way. Everyone should try this - you'll never go back to mashed!"
