When it comes to kitchen gadgets, I’m constantly lamenting how my favorite pieces (old, wood and worn-in) aren’t always the most functional or ergonomic. They look beautiful, and worn wood feels soft to the touch, but if you have to stir and fold something a million times, they start to lose their charm. That said, the ultra-ergonomic OXO-type gadgets smack me in the face with so much ugly that I find myself hiding them in drawers.* Why can’t function and form marry more frequently when it comes to kitchen gadgets?
Thankfully, they have when it comes to these lovely whisks from Normann Copenhagen. I’ve heard from a friend who just got a set that they’re easy on the hands and the eyes, which is a win-win in my book. Inspired by the silhouette of an Italian Cypress tree, these whisks combine bamboo and plastic for a tool that’s useful but not so plastic-y and unattractive that you have to hide it in a drawer. You can pick up this whisk right here at Gretel Home for $26. If anyone knows of another form-meets-function kitchen tool out there, I’m all ears. I’d love to find some that are pretty and practical. xo, grace
