    Potato mashers are a kitchen utensil designed to smush and break up cooked potatoes for mashed potatoes. Potato mashers have a handle on one end and a metal mesh or wire on the other end designed to break down potatoes or other soft foods into a smooth consistency. Consider the style of handle that will work comfortably and best for the job you have in mind. Some handles are parallel to the mashing surface and may allow you to more easily apply pressure. Others will require you to grip the handle in a perpendicular position. The mashing surface on potato mashers varies. Some are metal plates with holes in them, which will effectively make your food smoother, but will likely get more food stuck on them. Others are more a hard wire mashing surface. These may require more mashing, but are a bit less messy.
