I freeze mashers all the time ;-) Just let them cool and place in approriate size zip lock baggies, remove as much air as possible and place in freezer :-)

We raise a lot of potatoes in our garden and when we make mashed potatoes, we will make a large batch, and just place the extra mashed potatoes in zip lock bags and place in freezer. We just defrost and heat in the microwave. If they are too thick, just add a little milk. We started freezing single servings or small servings of mashed potatoes, and when our small grandchild was here, we could have a vegetable for him as he began to eat table foods.

My sister freezes them by using a small scoop like you would use for cookies and making small balls of them on a baking sheet. Then freezing several hours. Once frozen place into a Ziplock bag and when you want to use them take out only the amount you need and heat in the microwave. They got the idea from the Schwans' mashed potatoes that are so convenient but so expensive.

How well do these store in the freezer? I keep my freezer at 0* fahrenheit and will be using large freezer containers.
