Looking for a fast and easy way to get silky smooth mash speedily?  My new favourite tool is the Kenwood’s stick blender – which has a pop-on attachment specially for mash. The posh name for it is the Tri Blade Hand Blender £69.99. Pricey but it does a lot more!

1 Drain potatoes, return to pan and heat for 1 min to dry out.

2 Turn off the heat, add a large knob of butter and generous glug of milk.

3 Whiz together with the mashing attachment until smooth.
