Master Whisk

Updated on February 12, 2018

Coil gravy whisk

Most often the best kitchen gadgets aren't expensive, they are the favorite tool you reach for again and again because they simply make your job easier. I feel that way about my favorite kitchen gadget which my husband and I lovingly call Uncle Roger's whisk. This whisk is a flat gravy whisk.

My husband's uncle was a hard working, strong and sometimes gruff farmer who lived and farmed in Iowa all of his life. And while his wife did most of the cooking, he loved to cook and shared with me on several visits the spices, kitchen tools and gadgets that were his favorites. This flat coiled wire whisk was one tool he gave me. I'm a chef so I thought I had the best tools for the kitchen but this simple, inexpensive kitchen gadget has become one of my favorites. Norpro, the company that makes this whisk calls it Krona Sauce Master Whisk. I call it "the never have lumpy gravy" whisk or the scrambled egg whisk, but most of all when I need it and can't find in the kitchen drawer, I ask my husband, "Have you seen Uncle Roger's whisk?"

If you want to whip up a velvety lemon kissed hollandaise, make a sausage country gravy without lumps or whip eggs for a fluffy omelette like a professional and you don't have this whisk buy one. But first read the reviews! I'm not the only one who thinks this is simply the best kitchen gadget around. And it's the only whisk I use for my creme brulee style rice pudding.

At Christmas and Thanksgiving, you will become the gravy master, easier than you ever thought possible. This flat gravy whisk gets into the corners, sweeps up the pan drippings effortlessly and pulls it all together into a sauce worthy of the holidays.

Tuck one into a Christmas stocking for the home cook and/or chef in your life. Tie one to the handle of a stainless steel saucepan with a big red ribbon. Slip the Krona Sauce Master Whisk into a housewarming basket with a basic book of sauces.

But don't make the mistake of buying this kitchen tool if you are looking for a whisk for heavier batters like cake batter or pancake batter...this is a whisk for light gravy, sauces, and egg recipes.


"SAUCE, n. The one infallible sign of civilization and enlightenment. A people with no sauces has one thousand vices; a people with one sauce has only nine hundred and ninety-nine. For every sauce invented and accepted a vice is renounced and forgiven."

-Ambrose Bierce

Hollandaise is not a hard sauce to make but it does take practice and good kitchen tools.

Cream gravy with sausage and fresh sage, not an everyday food but delicious spooned over hot country biscuits.
