I am in no way, shape or form an old fashioned girl. I work full time, drink like a fish, swear like a sailor and fully embrace technology... except when it comes to kitchen tools.
For me, there is nothing like the feeling of a knife in your hand when it comes to chopping and when I make mashed potatoes, I am all about smashing the hell out of them, by hand, with one of these -
...and there had better be lumps. You heard me. I want the lumps that prove I did the job by hand. Besides, everything I cook is rustic and home-style and if I happen to be upping my game for a fancy dinner party, I'll smooth my taters out with one of these -
So, when I received an electric tool that exists for the purpose of mashing potatoes I thought of two things:
1) If I use this, I will no longer have a way to get out my hostility toward my coworkers in a healthy fashion.
2) I am too much of an impulsive bull in a china shop to use this tool. It is meant for one with a far more measured and delicate touch. I would likely create glue.
So, for those reasons (but mostly number 1), I am giving away a tool called the Dash Masher. It is brand new in the box and ready for a cook who has far less aggression to resolve than I do. I have family members that use this and swear by it, but I know it is the wrong tool for me.
