I actually got this for free to try and see if I like it and I absolutely did I found it was a great masher and the fact that the bottom turns flat against the handle so it can fit in easily with the rest of your kitchen utensils.
This Orblue potato masher has kind of a unique design that I haven't seen before, but it's actually really clever. For me, Potato Mashers are the number one utensil that causes a drawer to get stuck. In this case, the mashy part of the utensil can be turned flat for storage, avoiding the sticky drawer situation! It also makes it much easier to keep clean, as you can direct the water flow right onto the stuck food from the correct side!
I was a bit worried that the folding design would weaken the masher, but it's high quality and doesn't weaken it at all. The masher does a great job mashing up potatoes, tomatoes, really anything you can mash.
It is a little confusing at first to figure out how the masher turns to a flat version, but that was my mistake, because Orblue included a booklet I had managed to miss inside of the box which explains it easily.
Simple pinch above the screws on both sides of the metal handle of the masher and hold and the bottom part will then be able to be turned. There'll be a satisfying click when it's in ready to mash position!
