My Mother in law bought us a few items when we first moved into our house although to be fair most of it was just duplicating items that we already had seeing as we had been living together in two previous flats before the house. However seeing as I never look a gift horse in the mouth I accepted this egg whisk and set of egg cups/spoons which were a matching set with open arms.
Of course I don't know how much was paid for this egg whiskie but I should think it wasn't especially too much as my mother in law does like a good bargain. Having had a quick look on different internet sites I can see that the price ranges from a couple of pounds to around £4 so it is worth shopping around for.
The whisk is quite cute and at 13 cm in length is able to stand on the work surface next to your cooking items. It is not excessively large especially when compared to the previous whisk I had which was a bit of a tight squeeze fitting into the kitchen drawer.
The whisk is able to stand up because of the cute little cartoon like egg character which not only doubles up as a handle but also a stand as it has some cute little feet. The egg part is made of a thick durable type of plastic and the whisk is of course made of a stainless steel.
The whisk itself is not suitable for the dishwasher because of the egg shaped handle as I guess this would not like the heat and would probably get water trapped inside. It is however pretty easy to clean in a bowel of hot soapy water and the most difficult thing to get off is when we make cakes and the mixture congeals to the whisk but again this is still not much bother to remove if it is cleaned quickly after use.
Of course I can't say that this egg whisk is particularly to my taste and doesn't really fit with the décor I am aiming to have but there is one member of the family who does like using it and I think that if it is going to get my little 5 year old involved in the cooking side of things then it is a good thing. He finds the whisk utterly adorable and enjoys helping making cakes and scrambled egg and the like when using this whisk.
The quality of the whisk is not that great and I can't see it being one of those items that last for a many years. I am sure that the plastic egg will in time come away from the metal aspect of the whisk but for now it is going strong and it is a cute little item which fits in the kitchen drawer and works well. I think I can easily award it a good score of 4 out of 5 stars and I would recommend it to those with little helpers who would take interest in such thing.
I do hope that this has been of some help/ interest to you
Many thanks for taking the time to read.
