A kitchen staple since the early 1900s, this manual food processor makes quick work of producing smoothly riced potatoes or puréed vegetables or fruits for sauces, jams and jellies. With the ricer seated in a bowl or pot, ingredients placed inside are ground using the included hardwood pestle, forcing them through fine perforations in the cone. Nothing larger than the perforations can pass through, so cooked vegetables and fruit are ground to an even consistency without any lumps; only the juice and pulp pass through, leaving skins and seeds behind. With perforations from the rim to the tip of the cone, there are no voids to trap food.
The pestle is sized to match the depth and taper of the cone, maximizing surface contact between the cone and the pestle, ensuring thorough results with minor effort. The removable 7" diameter tin-plated steel cone rests in a rigid stainless-steel frame standing 8 1/2" tall.
