When I was asked to review the Masha electric potato masher in return for the device to try out I jumped at the chance. I had looked at the Masha previously but felt I couldn’t justify the price. The reality is a hand potato masher is less than a fiver! I worried that it would be money wasted. As a sceptic I tested the Masha out and here is what I found.
What is the Masha?
The Masha is an electric potato masher, not dissimilar to a hand blender in design. Whilst it is designed for making mashed potato it can be used for pureeing baby food or other things too.
The Masha is a handheld device with a simple on/off switch and currently comes with two blade attachments, the aerator blade or the standard Masha attachment.
The device plugs into a standard UK household socket.
How did I get on with the Masha?
I absolutely hate mashing potatoes but love mash and packet mash just is not the same is it? Whilst I have never tried using a hand blender like the one I have gets food easily stuck around the blades and as such wouldn’t work well.
I love the way this has holes around the end so the mash just slides out hassle-free. My initial thoughts were that the blade did not look strong enough for mashing potatoes but I was pleasantly surprised.
The Masha was easy to use and made the perfect mashed potato for my homity pie. It was extremely easy to clean and made making mashed potato effortless.
Would I recommend it?
I absolutely would recommend the Masha and despite it being around £37.95 currently on Amazon I felt it was great value for money.
I am not a fan of physically mashing my own potatoes and despite potatoes being so cheap I often opt for packet mash for ease or have boiled or jacket potatoes. The money this would save on packet mash is immense and the mash it makes is delicious.
If you are undecided then do consider trying it out as they have a 90-day no questions asked guarantee. If you decide it isn’t for you then you can get your money back.
I love baked potatoes, you can eat them with so many different fillings.
I love potatoes in any shape or form. But my faves are roast potatoes and gravy

It has to be chips. They go with absolutely anything or on their own. They truly are the king of potatoes! lol

I love deep fried potatoes – it’s our family tradition at Christmas. Par boil then deep fry them.
I do love mashed potatoes with loads of gravy. This causes all sorts of arguments in our house as hubby also loves mash, but can’t stand gravy on it. I sometimes forget when I’m dishing it up and then have to try to disguise the gravy on his!
