A Very Good Kitchen Gadget

WMF, a German food service equipment manufacturer of all things from cutlery, glassware and kitchen gadgets to coffee brewers and pressure cookers, has been in business since 1853. I don't know if they invented the "ball whisk," but they sure make a good one. Two sizes: eight and twelve inches at Sur la Table for $20 and $25, respectively--pricey but worth it if you use a whisk now and then. These whisks will do what the basket wire whisks have been doing since Julia Childs rode a tricycle, except they don't get clogged up and are easy to clean. Try these on waffle batter, risotto, egg mixtures and vinaigrettes. Since the handles are smooth, they should roll nicely between the palms to make whipped cream (though I now use a stick blender for that). Wire whisks are such a hassle to unclog and to clean that you will seek opportunities to use a ball whisk.
