I had a discovery while making potato soup today
You know those immersion blenders that you put in the pot or bowl to mix the food?
I have thought for some time that it would be cool to have one, but I've delayed buying it, not sure how often I'd use it. Today I made potato soup and pulled out an old potato masher that belonged to my husband's grandmother. I realized that I use it all the time, and I also realized that I don't need a machine to do the job, this little gadget does what I need to be done.
(This is close to the one I have and is estimated to be 100 years old)
This does the job, is easy to clean, only uses a little muscle power and not electricity.
