I think they are basically the same, but whipped potatoes are made with an beater, while mashed potatoes would be made with a masher.
That's what I'm thinking too! I'm from the whipped potato generation; my grandmother used her potato masher; sometimes my mom would use the masher to "push" the potatoes through the holes in a ricer before making them into mashed! I don't know why she called it a was a pan with holes in it (also used it on top of another pan to steam veggies, etc).

This is a headache day; need to take some meds 'cause it's not going away on its own.

Have a great day (I know, I keep saying it 'cause I mean it!)
