View Full Interactive Version Of This Page : Parallel mashers - who makes a good one?
I'm looking to buy a set of parallel mashers and I'm wondering who makes the best of these? I mean, I really want a pair that mashes perfectly parallel.
I was afraid someone was going to say Dona :D They're so expensive! But maybe it's worth it. I haven't had much luck finding any...most of them are quasi-parallel. The only other one I found works on a sort of plier mechanism but tweaked to press parallel. The cost increase is remarkably steep so maybe there isn't much of a price difference between those and the Dona tools. I'll have to check it out!
I have just the BBQ mashers (I think Frantz makes the best ones of those) but I've seen the parallel mashers/pliers thing and it's a bit of a Frankenstein. I think it looks pretty unwieldy and I imagine they'd take a fair amount of strength to close.
I can get a pretty flat bead from my BBQ mashers by mashing, turning the bead over and mashing again. Sometimes I'll do it several times.
