I would like to try this recipe but I don't have a Sev-Press and I couldn't find one in my local flea market either(boo-hoo!!).
Can anyone confirm that a potato ricer or Spätzl-maker would work just as well, as I know where to easily get those particular gadgets.

Don't know about a Spätzl-maker, however, a ricer is designed to push a solid object trough a shaping-plate (for want of a better word). I imagine that paste would probably leak out of the 'piston' at the back. If you already have one, try it out, but I wouldn't go and buy one specially.
I'll ask Julia, she may have a better idea. --Chef 12:41, 26 July 2010 (BST)
If the potato ricer is like the one that I have (like a giant garlic crusher) then it may well work, but am not sure.--JuliaBalbilla 14:13, 26 July 2010 (BST)
Thanks Chef & Julia. I'll go and check out the prices of ricers and decide if it's worth investing in one

User: Robin - what sort of consistency is the batter? More like pastry or similar to soggy mashed potato??
