Before wire whisks or food processors, a favorite mealtime staple, mashed potatoes, were painstakingly prepared by hand.
A wooden implement of numerous designs, some were quite primitive. Some were made on a wood-turning lathe, and graced many old-time kitchen shelves.
Once the potatoes were peeled and cooked, they were placed in a cooking pot or large bowl and hand-mashed with these crude instruments.
Other wooden utensils on display are butter molds, butter paddles, spoons (some with holes), meat-turning fork, vegetable slicer, salad tongs, Springerle cookie rollers, a noodle roller, flour scoop, and a pie-docking roller.
This collection of potato mashers was assembled by the late Ella (Reiter) Flamm (1916 – 2005) and displayed in the kitchen of her home along Telegraph Road, in Arnold, for many years.
This collection is now on loan to the Arnold Historical Museum by Barbara Berry of Imperial. It will be on display until September 30th.
