Info: 2-in-1 whisk (transforms to flat or balloon)
More than meets the eye, this flat whisk transforms into a balloon whisk with a mere twist of the wrist, using the hanging knob at the end of its handle. A unique creation from the United Kingdom, this is a versatile and stylish gizmo every creative chef should own. Flat- and balloon-style whisks each have their uses (for blending sauces or whipping, respectively), but this does both, so saves on expense and clutter, and flat whisks are easier to store (they are much less likely to become entangled with their neighbouring utensils in a drawer, and hug the wall better if hung).
This handy tool combines the strength of steel wires with the advanced protection of a silicone-coating, which is suitable to use on non-stick cookware, and is heat-resistant up to 270C/520F, so you can not only use it to combine ingredients together or emulsify colder ones, but also to prevent hot ones from sticking or burning on the bottom of a pan.
Use as necessary, either as a balloon whisk for whipping, or as a flat whisk for blending sauces in low pans or making gravy in roasting trays.
The Twist 2-in-1 silicone whisk is dishwasher safe, and separates into individual components for thorough and easy cleaning. (This is the all-green wire model shown disassembled here, which also has a green knob, rather than the multicoloured wire one we are selling which has a red knob, pictured above.)
