Spaetzle is really easy, I substitute it for macaroni in mac & cheese. Get a potato ricer, it is really easier the a colander, the hardest part is waiting for the water to boil.

Suzi, here is a link to a spaetzel board that looks like it would be uber easy to use. I'm thinking about ordering one to try. I tried a potato ricer without a lot of success. This looks like it might be easier to do.

Wow what a bunch of great Spaetzel ideas! Inspiring... that Green Onion Creole Mustard combination sounds to die for! Are you going to go for it Suz?

You don't need a rice cooker, just a pot of boiling water. It's just like cooking pasta.

If you have a steamer insert for a saucepan, you can use the holes in the bottom to make the spaetzle right into the saucepan.

I do! It also has a colander that fits into the pot, that just might work! Thanks!
