To be honest I really only bought this whisk because it is so darn cute. The whisk is a small manual hand whisk and where you usually find a handle you will find an egg with a face on it, a cute little egg man who sort of looks a bit like a duck. The egg shape is probably about the same size as a regular egg. On his face Egbert (yes, we have given him a name) has two little eyes, an orangey/yellow beak and two big orangey/yellow feet. His little beak is upturned so it looks like he has a bit of a frown on his face which makes him even cuter in my opinion.
As a whisk this is really not the best whisk you can buy by a long shot. To begin with it is a manual whisk which really are a lot more labour intensive than an electric whisk. It is very small as well. There are only three metal loops on the whisk so you will not get a very good whisking action with this as they are not that close together and will not airate your mixture very well. I really only use this if I am going to make scrambled egg for myself as it will happily mix up one or two eggs but anything more than that and say something like a cake mixture, do not even bother with this whisk, use an electric one.
It's fairly easy to hold this whisk in your hand. Unlike regular whisks where you have a long handle this egg fits nicely in the palm of your hand and you can rest his flat feet in your palm and get a nice flat hold so whisking up little things is quite convenient with this whisk.
I bought him in a fancy kitchen shop for around the £5 mark and he's cute but probably not the best kitchen tool ever.
