VERMONT - Masher
IRISH POTATO MASHER
This is a copy of an antique design. Our ancestors were onto something. No moving parts, no batteries. No loose bits to fall into the potatoes. No metal to corrode. Does the job right every time. Now that's engineering design at its best!! This masher is not only good for potatoes, but you can see that it is perfect for tenderizing meat as well. It measures 10-1/2" tall and 1-3/4" in diameter , made from solid yellow birch wood.
SIZE 10-1/2" x 1-3/4"
ABOUT THE COMPANY
Vermont Bowl Company is a privately owned company located in Wilmington Vermont. With very few exceptions all the products are manufactured right in their own facility. Their craftspeople are both men and women, young and old, with the longest serving having been with the company for over 30 years. They have been producing fine wood products since 1967 when John McLeod first started in a borrowed workshop just months after emigrating from Scotland.
John worked for a number of years as an individual craftsman. The business went through all the traditional stages of borrowed workshops, house basements, tiny converted gas stations and property purchases finally followed by five factory extensions and the development of two attached retail stores.
No other company produces a range of wooden bowls in production quantities to equal that of The Vermont Bowl Company. Because of their earlier years of individual craftsmanship, a tradition of standards was imbued into the company, which has translated into a reputation for quality and integrity in company policy and in product which is the envy of the industry.
VP Tommy Fox has been with the company for over 30 years. Tommy is a partner in the firm with John and it is with Tommy that the future of the company lies. Tommy and John collaborate in a number of areas such as design and future planning but Tommy has complete responsibility for the day-to-day operation of the company.
