As I said in the beginning of this thread, this is just one aspect of a research project I am doing for a university design class. I am simply gathering information on who uses these objects and why they use them. While I am giving all of you the benefit of the doubt, I understand that any one of you could pulling my leg. I am collecting data in other ways, like doing research face to face with real people, and personally testing the tools as well, so I'm not really worried if some of you lie to me, because it will show up when I collect information from other sources. In the end I will be averaging out my findings, so if something seems really incongruous with everything else, I don't have to use that response. I don't mean to offend anyone by asking for age or gender. If you really don't want to tell me, then don't. I only ask because it is significant to my research.

@Molly, I have not posted on here before. I came here because I wanted to talk to people who regularly use the item that I am trying to redesign. In an indirect way I am discussing cooking. I'm not here to sell anything or abuse the community.

chriscamp, I'm in Edmonton too. Good luck with the research.

To our members, chriscamp appears to be who he says he is. Thanks for being so "on top" of everything. We appreciate how you look after the place.

Andy...how much was the unbreakable ricer?

I use # 1 -only it is the $10 -18 inch version - 5 inch diameter with five waves of wire across it enclosed in a 4 inch Dia. circle , real good design ,easy washup ,but not for nonstick.
#5 my wife uses in a nonstick 5 qt.
Had # 4 but it was crap.
the weird one -OXO is it?,is turning up in droves at secondhand stores so that's a vote against I'd say
KULL spatsle maker for ricing if I'm piping it ,but that isn't mash ,it is riced potatoe.
The KA mixer works ,but can make a glue like mess easily so best not to do that IMO
I'd stick to # one but change the handle to nsf .
regards Gage ( 60 ) MWM

NSF originally stood for National Sanitation Foundation but is now referred to as NSF International.

Number 5 is the most like the one I use but the one I use is metal. I spent years trying to find it. For some reason all I could find were mashers like #1. I like my masher because it is efficient and strong. It would be helpfull if it were easier to clean. Maybe non-stick.
