The Flat Whisk
Today we're highlighting one of our favorite tools - the flat whisk. If you ever deglaze a pan, this kitchen tool is a must. Yes, a regular whisk will do the job, but the flat whisk really gets in the edges of the pan and gets all of the good bits of flavor off the bottom. It also does a wonderful job with making the roux for gravy or sauces like hollandaise. We're huge fans of tools that make things easier in the kitchen, and this tool definitely delivers.
We have a silicone coated flat whisk, which is great because the sound of metal on metal sets Michelle's teeth on edge. It also protects your non-stick pans from scratching.
We give the flat whisk four thumbs up.
