I bought this because my children hate lumpy mashed potato. It comes with three separate discs which allow to make mashed potato in 3 different consistencies. The masher itself is well made and appears to be sturdy, it is dishwasher safer but I found it easier to hand wash it as takes up room in the dishwasher. It is comfortable to use and easy to hold. It also comes with a high quality peeler which makes peeling fruit and vegetables much quicker. For me, this is a great kitchen gadget, my children now eat mashed potato without complaining.
