You can check the doneness of potatoes by sticking a small knife through one of them: if the knife goes through easily, the potatoes are done.

Pour the water out. Keep the potatoes in the same pot where they were cooking.

Add butter and mash the potatoes using potato masher.

If you do it right away while potatoes and their pot are still hot, you’ll end up with perfect, lump-free mashed potatoes without too much effort.

Then pour in the hot milk, a little at a time, and continue to stir the potatoes.
