a whisk for the corners

Using a round whisk for a squared-off pot drives me crazy, especially when I find unmixed custard, pudding or sauce bits in a channel along the bottom edge. Whisks such as this or this or this or this are painless investments, and come in handy when you want a perfectly-mixed chocolate pudding, and you want it now.

  1. I’ve been using one of these for a long time and never noticed its peculiarity – I had bought it just because it is silicon coated and worked right with my nonstick pans. Now you’re giving me one reason to love it even more :)
    (btw just happened on this wonderful site and I absolutely love it :)

    Hi! Can you post your mini whisk recommendation that is a circle of wires and you are using for beating just one egg? I know you were pleasantly surprised by the mini whisk, but I can’t find the recommendation on your website. Thank you!!

    Have you tried a Danish dough whisk? I find them to be fabulous for mixing bread and cookie dough, and I think this could be another option for a “whisk for the corners.”

        Ah, so many whisk types, so little time. I remember back in the early 1970’s (I am aging myself) when I bought my first balloon wire whisk, and it made me feel oh so française!
