I am making 35 lbs of mashed potatoes and I need to know how to keep them warm. I have a steam roaster. Will this work or will the roaster make them soupy?
You should be fine using the steam roaster to keep your mashed potatoes warm. The soupy texture usually occurs from over mixing the potatoes. I find I have the best luck in using a hand masher or my favorite, a ricer.
