Whisk It to Win It - Which Whisk Is Right for You?
Okay, it might seem elementary to have a whole blog post dedicated to whisks, but just think about how many times you use them in your own kitchen over the course of a year. I have about four that I use on a regular basis and all serve a different job. Think you don't need one? Here are just a few of the many things you can do with a whisk in your own kitchen:
Beat scrambled eggs
Make homemade whipped cream
Fluff egg whites into meringue
Make homemade mayonnaise
Use to mix dry items while baking instead of sifting
Large whisks are great for heavy duty beating jobs like the above-mentioned whipped cream or meringue.
Smaller whisks are great for mixing salad dressings or scrambling a quick bowl of eggs.
There are also ball, tornado, and French whisks - all of which have their own specific purpose from making the perfect sauce to developing the creamiest of puddings.
A dough whisk is exactly what it sounds like. It is specifically formed to help mix wet and dry ingredients when forming dough for bread and pastries.
Moms, how many whisks do you have in your kitchen and what do you use them for when cooking?
