    Amazing. My first time making mashed potatoes and I was worried about them being creamy enough. Everyone loved them, I will continue to use this as my only mashed potato recipe.

    Fast, easy, cheap and tasty. Softening the butter without melting it does wonders; I threw it in the microwave for 15min on the lowest possible setting and then zapped the milk for ~5min on medium-low.

    OMG... Love it! It came out so creamy and best of all, it didn't get dried up in the crock pot like before. Maybe it didn't dry up because it was such a hit that we went through it quick. This is my go to recipe from now on. Using the mixer was so effortless and a huge time saver.
