Tesco Value HM06
I use my whisks alot as I am constantly baking. I also tend to use an electric whisk for mashing my potatoes as it makes it alot creamier and fluffy. About three months ago, my beloved whisk shot a flame out of it and ceased to work. After the shock I needed a whisk quickly as I was in the middle of a marathon baking session. Luckily for me, my Mum was in Tesco and saw their Tesco Value one and picked it up for me.
It came in the standard Tesco Value box - plain with the Tesco Value logo and a picture of the whisk on the front. The whisk itself was wrapped in plastic and with the instructions tucked in the side. The whisk is made of solid plastic and is white. It has a handle to hold on to whilst whisking with the speed setting just above the handle. I like where this is positioned as it is easier to switch between speeds whilst whisking. It comes with two whisk attachments which easily connect into the main body of the whisk by simply slotting them in until you hear them click. There is a button on the top of the whisk which press to release the attachments when you need to clean them.
There are 5 different speed settings which are 1-5, one being the slowest. Ths whisk is very quick, even on the lowest setting. I use it for baking and for potatoes and have found that even on the lowest setting the whisk still flicks bits of cake batter or potato out of the mixing bowl. I still use the same mixing bowl I used with my old whisk and never had this problem. It is a little annoying.
The other problem with the whisk is the cord is so short! It really makes it difficult to move around with. It also limits where you can plug it in. I am unsure why Tesco would cut the cord so short. I understand it is a Value product but the length of the cord is absolutely crazy!
All in all the whisk is okay. I preferred my old one to this one as the cord was longer and it didn't spray food out of the bowl when I am whisking! This set me back £4.97 from Tesco.
