Cuisipro puts a twist on an essential kitchen tool with the Twist Whisk

Cuisipro Twist Whisk

Our limited kitchen counter real estate means we try to edit our kitchen tools pretty ferociously. But one tool that has earned a place is the Cuisipro Twist Whisk.

The Twist Whisk was originally created to beat eggs and cream. If you love the hands-on part of whipping cream or egg whites, this, plus a copper bowl, will make the task lighter.

Over time, though, I’ve found more and more uses for it. This whisk has distinctive twisted, silicon-coated wires. As the company notes, “This unique shape creates more movement of air while mixing, allowing for more efficient blending.” And it really does make the task easier. I use it to mix up pretty much any sauce.

It’s very helpful in baking, making fast work of batters (when I make this gingerbread, the Twist Whisk always gets involved). It’s heat resistant, so you can whisk up a sauce over a flame. It doesn’t scratch! Wash it in the dishwasher. It is just a beautifully designed, enormously useful tool. We have four or five different whisks, including the IKEA DIREKT Whisk (which is perfect for whisking a roux). But when I am at the stove and my hand goes out to grab a whisk, this is the one my brain always selects.

You can find the Twist Whisk in two sizes and various colors online, for around $17, at Amazon, Cooking.com and the Epicurious shop.

If God had intended us to whip egg whites and heavy cream with a whisk, he would never have given us the stand mixer.

Seriously, I have one of these as well, and I really like it for just about anything one could use a whisk for.

Okay, so pride goeth before destruction, but one thing I have always had an inflated sense of pride about is knowing my kitchen tools. So how did this one slip past me? It’s now added to my Amazon cart. Thanks for the recommendation, Terry!
