This nifty twist whisk was brought to my attention by Nuno Antares — many thanks, as I hadn’t seen anything like it previously.
I like using a whisk for lots of things, but they’re hard to store in a drawer. And on a boat, it’s a pain to have a bunch of kitchen implements in a countertop container of some sort that you have to secure before you get underway.
And that’s why this Joseph Joseph 2-in-1 Twist Silicone Whisk is so neat. Twist the handle one way, and the “wires” lie flat so it’s easy to store in a drawer; twist the other way and it’s a regular whisk.
Two other neat features:
- The wires are silicone-covered so are safe to use in a non-stick pan; and
- The whisk comes apart for cleaning.
The cleanability factor is always an important one to me on a boat where you’re washing by hand and trying not to use oodles of water. I’ve written about this in more detail here and here, but being able to disassemble an item is a HUGE plus in my book.
If you look at this whisk on Amazon, you’ll see some of the reviews talking about the price being high compared to other places. Well, that seems to be in the past as Amazon’s price is right in line with the others now — and if you combine with something else to reach the minimum for free shipping (or you’re a Prime member), it’s cheaper.
