I'm almost embarrassed not to have thought of this tip before seeing it! It's so logical and simple!
I talk about the inevitable damage that whisks make when they are manipulated with enthusiasm!
Frosting and cake mixes, crushed potatoes and smoothies are all opportunities for the contents of the bowl to be found on your clothes, the counter and everything else that drags around!
But if you drill holes in a paper or foam plate and you pass the whisks there ...
You have a perfect anti-damage accessory! Splashes go on the plate and nowhere else!
I'll keep a small stack of paper plates in my closet: no more splashes when I cook ...!
