Dough Whisk Recommendation for You
You know how once in a while you find a tool that is just so pleasing and works so well that you want to tell everyone about it? This is one of those times. I've always had a fondness for mechanical beaters/whips: there's something pleasing about passing a bowl of whipping cream around the table and having everyone take a turn to whip the cream until it's done. And the gears, and whirring..the whole thing is just very pleasing. However, most mechanical egg beaters/whips/mixers are not well made: they're stiff, they rub, they grind, they're awkward to hold, they rust.
The OXO Good Grips egg beater solves all of those problems. It's stainless steel, disassembles so the working parts can go in the dishwasher, has a beautiful smooth, whirring action, and a nice upright rounded handle instead of an awkward horizontal bar. But the BEST PART is that you can take the two beaters off and you are left with a perfect dough whisk!
Anyhow. Not to nerd out over a tool, but it does make me happy every time I use it, so I thought I'd share. It's $20 on Amazon, but probably available in plenty of other retail outlets.
