UNBEATABLE: You don’t need to dig out the electric hand mixer for every occasion that calls for scrambled eggs, whipped cream or a smooth batter.
Sometimes, the good old-fashioned egg beater is more than enough.
For easy use, check for a beater that has smooth movement and an easy-to-grip handle. This one, made by Oxo, was inspired by the mechanism of a fishing rod and reel. That detail’s a real plus if you’re going to have helpers in the kitchen, young or old, who may have a hard time grasping things. This egg beater still will scramble if you rest the tool on the bottom of the bowl, and the beaters detach for easy cleaning.
