Hello again, savvy savers! Today finds us with a new product review, and this time the Bellemain Stainless Steel Potato Ricer Review. Now that I have an opportunity to own my own Potato Ricer, I am totally excited! This product is amazing. It will help you make anything from homemade applesauce to prepping potatoes for latkes, to pureeing fruits for frozen fruit for freezer jams. This product works well, cleans well, washes cleanly, and will be a new staple in my kitchen for years to come.
Includes Fine, Medium and Coarse Ricing Discs
Get more uses out of your ricer with a quick change of disc. Use the coarse disc for homemade pasta, egg salad or fibrous vegetables like sweet potatoes. The medium disc is great for potatoes; once they’re riced, just give them a quick stir with milk and butter and they turn into the smoothest, fluffiest mashed potatoes you’ve ever had. The fine disc strains cooked fruits and vegetables to the right consistency for those on a soft food diet; Extra-Large Basket with Bowl Rest included.
The more food you can rice at one time, the fewer batches you’ll have to do. That’s the reasoning behind this large basket design, and it can save you a lot of time. The bowl rest extension lets you suspend the ricer over your bowl while you have two hands free to transfer food from the cooking pot to the basket. A bonus? Cushioned, Ergonomic Handles.
Some ricers require quite a lot of force to get the cooked foods pressed through. Because not everyone has big, strong hands, the Bellemain is designed to take some of that pressure off. Extra-long handles position your hand farther from the fulcrum point, which multiplies the amount of force at the basket with less effort at your end. Plus, they have silicone cushions for even more comfort. Such as? Sturdy, Chrome Plated Stainless Steel handles.
When flimsy plastic or aluminum ricers have broken, bent or scratched, the Bellemain will still be going strong. It’s easy to clean, too: just put it in the dishwasher.
