This whisk, shaped like a milk frother or a coiled spring, can be a more effective tool in the kitchen than the more common balloon whisk. It is significantly better for cooking sauces and eggs – anything in a small or flat-bottomed pan that needs to be whisked smooth. The flat, curved head fits perfectly into the corners of a saucepan, and since the bottom of the whisk is flat instead of pointed you’re less likely miss spots.

The familiar balloon whisk, shaped like a teardrop, is better for use with rounded bowls and for aerating a mixture – cake batter, for instance, or egg whites.

IKEA has these (left) in paired bundles with a balloon whisk for $0.99, only available in stores.

For something a little fancier, try this Rosle Saucepan Whisk at Sur La Table for $16.
