Took a risk and used this on Easter - I was out of burners! - and it was fantastic.

The first time I made these, they turned out quite soupy. Made the again, putting a few layers of paper towels under the lid. Kept the condensation from falling back on the potatoes. After that, they came out great. I don't use the garlic or onion powders, but I do increase the salt a bit (we don't care for the flavor of garlic in mashed potatoes and the onion powder didn't do much.) All in all, really tasty and so convenient not to have yet another pan on the stove or in the oven on turkey day!!

Best potatoes ever - so easy to make and clean-up was a breeze. Will make again and share recipe with my friends.
I used vegetable broth and did not drain it; did not add the milk. Cut the potatoes into sixteenths and hand-mashed after the four-hour cook time on high.

Question is to drain the chicken broth off or is it absorbed by the potatoes? really want to try this for Turkey Day. It will free up oven space from the usual overnight potatoes we traditionally make.

I made this back in November for Thanksgiving dinner at church.. I didn't have any to bring back home and everyone loved it.

It's easier to get all the lumps out if don't add any ingredients until after you've mashed the potatoes. Drain the chicken broth, then mash the potatoes (a ricer works great) then add the other ingredients. I don't add the butter until after the potatoes are drained and mashed. We like more butter flavor. Great recipe!

I've been making these for years and everyone loves them. I substitute vegetable broth for the chicken, and run the potatoes through the ricer for a perfectly smooth texture. Delicious!

I substituted the sour cream with 16oz.french onion chip dip, it was a good choice to jazz up mashed potatoes...made them for Thanksgiving...everyone was ranting and raving about how good the potatoes were.

Be sure to drain the chicken broth before mahing otherwise you end up with soupy potatoes.
