A potato ricer is a kitchen implement used to mash or puree potatoes or other soft vegetables or fruit by forcing it through a sheet of small holes, which are typically about the diameter of a grain of rice. The ricer has been in use for a long time – it was mentioned in a cookbook published in 1918 and it could easily have been used much earlier than that. There are a few different designs of ricer. This particular one is a rotary ricer, and used a pestle to push the food (using a rotary motion) through the holes in the cone. This is what a food processor used to look like.
It has been thoroughly cleaned and then turned on it’s head – the cone originally faced the other direction on the frame – and the pestle has been cut down and used as the stem of the lamp.
