Balloon Whisk / Fresh Whipped Cream

Number 6 on the list of essential tools.  For your custom vinaigrettes, hollandaise sauce, and fresh whipped cream everyone needs a balloon whisk.  This tool will aerate (combine air), emulsify (blend unblendable liquids), and simply mix. A balloon whisk is a modest investment that’ll run you $5-12 and will provide functionality for many years to come.  We chose one of the simplest, yet most rewarding recipes-  fresh whipped cream.  3 ingredients, and a couple tips and you will never buy Cool Whip again.

    I love this video! From style to content amazing! I have never gotten my cream to whip properly without an electric mixer, must be because I wasn’t using a balloon whisk…

    very cute video. I have used a whisk for years but didn’t do the back & forth method—I did circles. Now I gotta go buy some heavy cream and try it the right way!! Even old dogs can learn new tricks! lol
