Shop Talk - Whisking Away

Three Balloon Whisks- The most common kind

Choosing a whisk can be a challenge. The varieties are wide and the prices... at times, can be as different and confusing as the type, make and model.
Some whisks are longer and narrower -- others are like big balloons. Some are flat, (yes, flat) and some are coated with silicone for use on non-stick surfaces. Some have mini wire balls inside the main whisk as a way to increase the air, and as a result, the volume of whatever your whisking. But I have never found these to be useful, just allot of work at clean up time, and they really don't whisk that much more air.
