Old fashioned egg beaters – do people still use them? I’d personally never used one so was very intrigued to give one a try. I have this image in my head of my grandmother using one while cooking and baking in her kitchen. But who says old fashioned egg beaters can’t make a come back? With OXO’s new product, I think they could!
OXO was kind enough to send me one of their new Good Grips Egg Beaters to try. Just like the name hints, the handle is soft and easy to grip, making the job super simple and comfortable. This product does a great job of combining the classic structure of an egg beater with slightly newer innovations. For example, the stainless steel beaters can simply pop out of the base to make tasting and cleaning easier. The base also easily detaches with the simple push of a button and is dishwasher safe! There is also a “bridge” between the two beaters that helps it rest against the bowl, keeping everything balanced and helping to relieve any possible arm strain.
If you couldn’t tell, I really like this product! I used it to make the quiche in the previous post, along with whipping up an omelet this morning with some of my extra spinach and a handful of parmesan cheese. And even though it’s specifically called an egg beater, it can be used for so much more, like whipping cream and mixing batters.
So, thanks to the sweet folks at OXO, I have another Good Grips Egg Beater to give away to one of you! There are four easy ways to enter:
