What is the most efficient way to clean a whisk?
It seems like it takes me ages before I can get all the batter off them, and I almost ALWAYS have to use my fingers. Am I missing something?
I put dirty wkisk into a wide mouth jar full of HOT water and soap and then whisk. The batter comes off quickly and then you can lightly wash with a dish rag, etc.
I find that a 3500psi gasoline engine powered pressure washer works wonders.
Soak the whisk in water for 30 minutes while the batter is still wet on the whisk. The batter will loosen and you can wash it with a sponge or rag to apply soap.
(I also like davenmidtown's suggestion as there is no wait time.)
Put it in the dishwasher as is. You don't have to clean it, rinse a little and put it in the dishwasher. Mine always comes out clean.
Let the dirty part soak in warm, sudsy water for a few minutes, use the wisk in the water and then put the wisk into the dishwasher for a full cycle with the rest of the dirty dishes. This has worked for me!
I whisk soapy water as if I'm beating eggs. Seems to work okay!
I soak mine or immediately wash it the same way I dirtied it. I put my dirty mixing bowl in the sink and fill it with hot water and soap. I vigorously "stir" the water and soap and my whisk comes clean pretty instantly. If I have waited too long, then I soak. This the exact same way I clean attachments on my electric hand mixer, but keep them attached to mixer and use the power of electricity instead of my puny muscles.
I use old tooth brush to clean the batter off the whisk. Works everytime for me.
My wife suffered with " how do I clean the whisk syndrome" for years. Now she brings them to me when I'm watching T.V. Amazing what a husband can do given half a chance. When I finish, she throws it in the dish washer. She still doesn't know the dog helps!

It is so tough for me to write a summary and keep it within the word limit. When you reach the limit, that's it....I see other summaries that are quite lengthy when I see other Hubs. Is there a "work around"?

I was just getting ready to send a hub in an email from the email option that used to be in the Share section. I couldn't find it.. has it been gone long? Or am I missing something?
