Moms are often in the kitchen preparing meals and baby food. One thing I absolutely hate to do is mash potatoes, it's a pain to do and my potato's always seem to be a little lumpy! Thankfully, there is an awesome new product on the market that is revolutionizing the way that we mash our food! I''m excited to introduce you to the Masha!

*I received a complimentary Masha for review in exchange for my honest thoughts and opinions*
The Masha is a product that I had never heard of before, but when I discovered it I was instantly intrigued. One thing I hate to do is mash things up and if there was an appliance that would make that job just a little bit easier, it was worth owning! The Masha is perfect for potatoes, vegetables, baby food, guacamole, cake mixes, pastries, and many other things!
When the Masha arrived I was impressed on how compact it was, yet it was still large enough where you wouldn't get your hand dirty if something was to splash up at you. The Masha requires an electrical outlet to work (rather than batteries) which is not a problem for me since I seem to have a million outlets in my kitchen, and honestly, who wants to buy extra batteries for an appliance? Not me, and probably not you either!
So now that you've seen the Masha and can see how awesome it looks, you may be scratching your head wondering how the Masha works. The Masha is equipped with a patented ROTOR-CONE technology that forces the object being mashed into the outer mesh of the Masha, which produces a perfect mash within seconds. The "Mashing Blade" as I have nicknamed it, is a smooth plastic that helps remove lumps from your food, and is a breeze to clean as well!
The Masha is easy to hold with a comfortable rubberized grip that you hold while you are mashing your food. At the top of the grip there is a button that you press and hold while you're mashing up the food The Masha only mashes at one speed which I personally think is great because it insures that you will not use a speed that is to high and get food all over your kitchen (which is something that I would most likely do!).
For my first time using the Masha I decided to test it out with a sweet potato. I baked it as I normally would and then transferred it from it's tin foil into my pyrex bowl. I then plugged in the Masha, sat the mashing blade on top of the sweet potato, and pressed the button! I found that you do need to press the Masha lightly onto the food item you are mashing, and once you do the Masha does the rest! In less than twenty seconds my entire sweet potato was mashed to the perfect consistency and ready to be devoured.
When it was time to clean the Masha I simply squeezed in on the release buttons and pulled out the bottom section of the Masha. Using my scrubby brush I was able to get all of the sweet potato out of the meshing easily and get the blade clean with no hassle. I let it air dry on the counter until I was ready to put it away. The bottom portion of the Masha is also dishwasher safe, so if you would prefer to stick it in the dishwasher that is an option as well.
Overall I really love the Masha and I know I will be using it every time we eat something that will require mashing! It's going to be an absolute treat during the holidays when the last thing I want to do is deal with mashed potatoes and it will be so helpful when baby #2 comes around one day and I'm making puree's again!
