Kitchen utensils: whisk

I feel I need to discuss a very serious word today :) It's a very useful kitchen tool and we use it for beating food. You can beat eggs or cream with it to add air and make the whole thing light. The word I'm talking about is

A WHISK

In Polish we call the tool trzepaczka. And this is how you pronounce the word whisk. To say more about this great tool, I need to add that you may have either an electric whisk or a hand-held whisk :)



A few examples from the Internet:
  • The only downfall was it required batteries but nonetheless a very good whisk.
  • Realizing I would rather be turning than wire cutting I decided to take a cheap whisk with a poor handle and make a handle for it.
  • Realizing I would rather be turning than wire cutting I decided to take a cheap whisk with a poor handle and make a handle for it.
  • When the lentils have cooked through, remove the pan from the heat and use a whisk to break down the lentils.
  • Use a whisk to gently combine the egg and sugar, and beat until the meringue begins to form soft peaks.          


My question to you:
Do you have a whisk in your kitchen? What does it look like? What do you use it for most often?

    2. Dziękuję za przetłumaczenie,nie sądziłam jednak że mam aż tak spory problem z gramatyką ale sądzę że z Pana pomocą poprawie ją bardzo szybko. Miałam tyle pytań ale już zrozumiałam poprawione błędy.

      Now I understand why you don't have a whisk :) good joke heh

    3. Well, I do have a whisk! :)

      A co do gramy... no niestety... jak to się mówi... diabeł tkwi w szczegółach, tak? Warto studiować gramatykę, bo dzisiaj się ją bardzo zaniedbuje i dużo mówi się o komunikacji itp. Ale jak tu się skutecznie komunikować, skoro zdania są niegramatyczne i błędne, a przez to wprowadzają niezrozumienie i zażenowanie po stronie słuchacza? Osobiście uważam, że gramatyka jest jak klej... Możesz znać tysiące słów, ale jak nie masz dobrego 'kleju' to z tych słów nic nie skleisz, czyli nie wypowiesz się dokładnie tak, jak byś chciała...

    1. Hah! I've got an electric one and I use it very rarely :)

    2. Wow, I have never used an electric whisk! And I think I couldn't. Handheld tools are more reliable :D At least in this case ;)

    4. Ahhh ok, my mistake. I don't say in Polish "elektryczna trzepaczka", but "mikser". This is why I thought that an electric whisk is like "trzepaczka" but electric :) Of course I've got an electric whisk. However, I use it only to make cakes or something. It is too much work to use it for eggs... You know, You must wash it, put back into cupboard... ;p

    5. I see :) This is the same reason why I don't use it very often :) Besides, I can't make too many things myself... What a pity :)
