Multi Masher

Adjustable Grid Potato Smasher

Student:

Pratt Insitute

Semester:

Fall 2021

Through testing and market research, I found that users smash not only potatoes but all sorts of different foods, and only some of them are as easy to beat with one grid setup. Hence, I looked to offer the user the ability to customize their grid pattern to fit their needs better by simply rotating the grill of the smasher. The cantilever handle allows the material to offer some bunchiness in the motion of smashing, making it easier and effortless altogether.
