A whisk is a kitchen drawer essential but can leave you with achy wrists when mixing lots of ingredients. Thankfully, the internet has found a solution: an automatic push whisk.
This nifty kitchen gadget looks like a standard whisk but push the handle down and the whisk will rotate automatically, creating a silky-smooth mixture in seconds.
It’s proven popular on the internet, garnering thousands of views on TikTok, with users praising how fast and easy it is to use.
A quick scroll shows people using it to mix everything from eggs and cake batter to salad dressing and creams.
As a homes writer, I’m always on the lookout for useful gadgets, which is why I was keen to see if the push whisk lived up to the hype. I decided to test one out in my own kitchen, putting it through its paces on a variety of tasks. Read on to find out what I thought.
Push whisk: My honest review
At first glance, the stainless-steel push whisk is nothing special, looking no different from my regular whisk.
Firstly, I decided to beat eggs and make a vinegar and olive oil-based dressing. Pushing the handle down took little effort, while it took less than 20 seconds to complete each task.
I felt I had more control while mixing too, with no noticeable splashback after use – a nice change to residue flying everywhere! But, most importantly, my wrists remained ache-free and ready to move on to the next task.
I then tried stirring milk and syrup into my iced coffee, and my partner used it to mix protein powder into shakes. Admittedly, a spoon is just as suitable for these tasks, but the whisk was super speedy and it felt like all the ingredients were well mixed.
One note? Similar to a standard whisk, the push whisk isn’t suitable for thick ingredients and large quantities of food – so don’t get rid of your trusty electric hand mixer just yet!
Push whisk: The verdict
I’m in agreement with TikTok on this one; this whisk has proved such a handy utensil, making fast work of tedious mixing and saving my wrists from previously tiring tasks.
It’s now one of my favourite time-saving products (Scrub Daddy’s damp duster comes a close second) and is reasonably priced at just £6.99.
I use this push whisk on an almost daily basis so if you’re tempted to try one, pick one up from Amazon here.
