Let's face it, whisks are a useful kitchen accessory. The trouble is that they can take up a fair bit of space in a drawer. When you think about a whisk you would, like most people, think about whipping cream or making meringues by beating egg whites. So far, the biggest use ours has seen is the heating of milk in our non-stick milk pot. By moving the milk around it is less likely to burn to the bottom of the pot. The same is with heating fruit juice in our camper van. It's winter. We need warm drinks...and don't want to waste gas...so moving the liquid around WITHOUT it splashing everywhere is important. This minimalistic whisk is GENIUS!
