SpudNik looks more like adult toy

SpudNik looks more like an adult toy of the sort found in Ann Summers or Agent Provocateur than a Russian spacecraft. It certainly doesn’t look like a potato masher, which is what it is.

Spudnik works by a rotational action and ‘reduces the effort of mashing by up to 50 per cent’, which makes you wonder how they measure these things. A Design Week guinea pig took Spudnik home for a test run and found it ‘very satisfying’, as only a potato masher can be.
