Classic Whisk: thanks to the thin handle end and wide spaces between the wires, the mixtures which are more or less liquid are easy to mix without much effort. I use it for: pancake, creams, sauces and soups.

Kitchen Whisk: the big round handle combined with many flexible and tight wires guarantees a good result when mixing pasta and preparations of thicker consistency. I uses it for choux pastry, custards …

Balloon whisk: she shape of the balloon brings a lot of air in the preparation when it is whipped. I use it for: beat the egg whites, whipped cream, make a sabayon …
