Better Batter Whisks

Better Batter Whisks

Generally, whisks that are large and have many, well spread-out wires are the most effective for mixing batters because they can get through the batter to incorporate all of the ingredients quickly and easily. Tovolo’s Better Batter Whisks break this tradition to some degree. The colorful silicone whisks are not large and have relatively few “wires,” but they have an unusual design that combines a ...

The Cake Knife

The Cake Knife

Layer cakes are notoriously difficult to slice and serve if you want to keep the slices looking their best. After the cake has been sliced, you typically need to slide a small spatula or even a pie server underneath the wedge of cake and try to transfer it to a waiting dessert plate.

What is your favorite kitchen unitasker?

Kitchen Unitaskers!

Unitaskers are kitchen gadgets that have just one use, rather than being versatile enough to be applied to a variety of situations. The term was coined by Alton Brown on the show Good Eats, where Brown was always looking for things that could serve double duty in the kitchen.
