Meet My Mashers: ¡Machacador!

I don't know that I've ever met a bean masher I didn't like.


I pick them up whenever I see them. I like all the different sized but my favorite one is somewhat big and made from madrone wood. It's from Native Seeds/SEARCH and is incredibly substantial.


I always oil them with food-grade mineral oil but even with care, the cheap ones can split. It's not the end of the world although I wonder if food couldn't get trapped and create some trouble.


I don't know if a wooden bean masher works any better than a metal potato masher but it's a nice tool to pick up when you're traveling.

They work well on guacamole as well.

Before you ask, I don't know where you can get these other types in the states and I don't have them for sale.



holy cow, I love tools and those are wonderful. I had no idea there were specific bean mashers. But I'm just getting caught up on my bean learning. :)
