Kitchen utensil that can be used to crush potatoes and other vegetables.
It consists of a round, possibly convex, wooden disc with a stem. With this, the boiled potatoes are pressed through the holes of a colander. The tool can also work in a puree strainer and then its shape is adapted to it (1). In addition to the wooden puree masher, there are also metal models, made of iron, aluminum or sheet iron. With these tools, with an open stamping part, you no longer have to work in a colander or a sieve.
See also potato masher (cattle). [MOT]
