Peel potatoes with the Paring Knife and cut them into four pieces using the Chef’s Knife.  Place the potatoes in the 8-quart Dutch Oven and add 1 cup of water.  Place lid on the Dutch Oven with Redy-cook valve closed; cook at medium heat for 25 minutes, or until potatoes are tender.

Drain remaining liquid using the Junior Steamer/Colander.  In the 1-quart Milk Warmer, heat up the milk and butter at low heat for 5 minutes.  Add the heated milk mixture to the potatoes and mash; season to taste.

Using a pastry piping bag make ghost shapes.  You can use any vegetable you love to make the faces.
