  1. How much water do you use to cook them ? I’m assuming you just cover the potatoes with water then drain and add in milk and butter after they are cooked ?

    Why I haven’t I cooked mash potatoes in the slow cooker earlier? omg so fluffy and delish <3

    I did the 4 hours cooking time and they were cooked to perfection however I did add 2 cups of water what I drained prior to mashing (my own personal preference as I find potatoes cook better with a little liquid) after cooking I made the mash how I normally would have either by butter/milk or the sour cream/chives packet mix which is awesome.
