Yeah, like that. I can't find them at Walmart. I think I bought my last one at Price-chopper, a grocery store, hanging in an aisle with other such kitchen tools.
What happened to that one? They just don't make them like they used to, and I get about two years' use out of an egg beater before it wears out... and that's pushing it, using it long after it needs to be tossed.
Most people ask why I'd want one, when I have a perfectly good KitchenAid mixer.
Here's the thing: If I want to beat a couple of eggs and then mix them with milk for my home-made rolls, for instance, who wants to dirty up a beater and a big ole bowl like that? I can use my egg beater and mix them in the measuring cup that's already been used to measure the milk. (Have I mentioned I don't have a dishwasher?)
The other question I'm often asked is this: Why don't you just use a whisk?
Whisks are fine to mix up scrambled eggs, or get lumps out of something you're cooking on top of the stove. But when a recipe calls for "well-beaten eggs", you aren't going to get the job done with a whisk.
Anybody know where I can find an egg beater?
