Getting ready today to serve the tradional pork, sauerkraut, and mashed taters to family and friends. I went to mash the taters and the mixer burned up ! I got a house full of guests, forks in hand, and I am in a pinch! Our kitchen is decorated with antique cookware and utensils. I glance up and get a revelation, theres a tater ricer hanging on the wall. This thing has not been used in probably 75 years ! I quick washed the old girl up, got the wife to scoop and load, and we had the best mashed taters you could ask for ! The kids thought the old contraption was great, and it sure saved the day !
