WFMW: The Kitchen Edition
It's time to post yet another WFMW tip. Shannon is hosting a kitchen edition this week!

I do a lot of baking in my household. While traveling, I found stumbled across a type of whisk I'd never seen before... a stainless-steel ball a specialty kitchen store. I bought two different sizes.

I've looked for them in stores in my area, but haven't found them. Then, the other day I found them for sale on

These whisks are fantastic! They're great for mixing both wet and/or dry ingredients. The thing I love about them is that the food you're mixing doesn't get stuck in clumps on the whisk, like they do with the egg whisks that I used to use.

If you haven't tried a stainless-steel ball whisk, I encourage you do do so! You'll love it!

Stainless-steel ball whisks work for me! To see what works for others, be sure to check out the other links at Shannon's, the creator of Works-For-Me Wednesday!

Now this is something I would love to have. I don't think this edition of WFMW is going to be good on my budget - LOL :) !!

I have never heard of a stainless steel ball whisk. But I love anything that makes cooking and baking better. I'll have to see if they carry those around here.

Very cool! These will go on my wish list.

At 11:06 PM, Blogger Jane said...

Oh I have to get one of these for my mom. She loves to have the latest gadget and this one is actually useful. I bet Amazon would have them. Great tip!

At 11:42 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Woo Hoo!! Finally a good reason for my 1 year old to have made my wisk mysteriously disappear! Now I can buy one of these, I do hate when the dough gets all stuck in the regular wisks... Thanks for the tip!

At 12:05 AM, Blogger Rae said...

I've seen these in Williams-Sonoma around here and am always just SO tempted to buy one. I never completely understood the concept behind them though but you just made that clear as ever to me. This is my next "to buy" item. Thanks so much for recommending these! =)

Okay I MUST.HAVE.THIS. My hubby will love it too. He's been complaining about our whisks and how someone needs to make one thats worth a poop! Wait til he sees this! Thanks for the info!

I had never seen one of these, but what a smart idea. I'm going to have to look for one.

At 7:32 AM, Blogger Heather @ Marine Corps Nomads said...

I've seen those before, but I never knew if they worked any better. I'm thinking I might need to get one of these now. ;)

At 7:40 AM, Blogger Mom said...

I have never seen this gadget before! I have to find one now, what a great idea. By the way, those photos on your site, on the left hand side, did you take those? They would make wonderful subjects for paintings!

At 7:44 AM, Blogger Leni said...

I have looked at those a couple of times, and now I think I'll just have to buy one!

I must say, my Irish heart was taken with your pictures. Beautiful. Makes my longing to visit there before I die even stronger!

God bless, Leni

Ingenious! I despise the clumps that get stuck inside a regular whisk.

At 7:57 AM, Blogger Robin said...

Oooh, I love the non-clumpiness idea. I use my whisk for sifting, too. Do you think it would work for that or would the balls snap flour all over the kitchen?

At 8:03 AM, Blogger M said...

I've never heard of this - but it sounds great!

At 9:25 AM, Blogger Annie said...

This is new to me :)
I am going to order one, my pampered chef wisk (although I use it often) annoys me!
Have a great Wednesday.

At 10:00 AM, Blogger Pieces said...

I've seen these before--it is good to hear a review of them. I think I'll get one too. I was just mentally cursing my regular whisk yesterday as pancake batter was all clumped inside of it.

At 10:22 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

I've never seen or heard of this before. Sounds great! Thank you!

At 10:57 AM, Blogger Sandy said...

I use to sell Pampered Chef so my kitchen has the best cooking tools! Fun site, I'll read more.
Come visit me if you have time.

At 11:04 AM, Blogger GiBee said...

Very interesting ... are the tines stiff or flimsy? I'll have to try one out.

At 2:46 PM, Blogger Michelle said...

I need a wire whisk like that! Thanks for the link!

At 3:02 PM, Blogger Merci said...

This is just fabulous. I can't wait to find me one of these! I use a whisk to make pancakes and the batter always gets clumped up. This is perfect! Thanks for the tip!

At 12:35 AM, Blogger Awesome Mom said...

That is pretty neat looking. I will have to add that to my list of kitchen gadget wants.

At 3:19 PM, Blogger Janis Rodgers said...

That is awesome! I will have to look for one of those! This is my first visit to your blog and I have to say that it is just beautiful! Thanks for letting me visit!

At 8:13 PM, Blogger Darlene said...

Darlene from I'm thankful for the thorns here,

Just stopped by on my way throught the blog party. Love your blog. I'll be back. But for now, I'm off to meet more people and read more.

Come visit mine. I'm #867

Blessing, Darlene

I'm going to be looking for this. I get so tired of fishing out clumps from the end of my whisk. Great tip.

I'm finally getting around to visiting WFMW tips! It's like getting to the Sunday paper by Thursday.
