Start to boil the water. When the water is boiling, put the potatoes into the water and turn down the heat to middle. Let the potatoes be boiled for about 30 – 40 minutes. You can also put on the lid when boiling, this would decrease the cooking time.

When the potatoes are finished, get rid of the water from the potatoes by air drying them. The boiled water can in this case be emptied from the boiler.

After 5 minutes of drying, put the potatoes and the butter into the boiler, and start smashing them. Put milk, salt and pepper. If the mashed potatoes are too thick, put more milk.
