These foldable whisks are really easy on the eye aren’t they?
Designed by German product trio Ding3000 for Normann Copenhagen (website – has soundtrack that you can switch off via top of page link), Beater is a foldable, nylon whisk available in a range of pastel colours. Of course, six or seven colourful whisks do look funky, but you’re not really likely to have that many hanging off your utensils rack! Inspired by a pack of plastic drinking straws, Beater has a sliding ring that allows the whisk to spring open and close. The idea being that when closed it’s easier to store in your cutlery drawer.
It looks great, though I wonder how it performs in the kitchen when compared to a conventional stainless steel balloon whisk? As whisking mixtures or beating eggs can be quite a vigourous activity you need a whisk that is sturdy, efficient and easy to hold.
