Flat whisks are a popular whisk for cooking sauce or gravy. The angle at which these whisks are constructed are perfect for shallow pans.
The flat whisk typically has four to six wires (tines) that loop from and back into the handle. These tines get progressively smaller and they are all oriented in the same direction. There are many different versions of this tool, but they all are useful for liquids in shallow pans.
The main thing we have noticed about flat whisks is that the way the tines come into the handle are a big indicator of quality.
You don't want there to be any way food or liquid can get into the handle.
These whisks are mostly made of stainless steel, but they can also be found in silicone.
The Oxo Flat Whisk is a recommended buy. Good Grips Whisks are perfect for stirring sauces in comfort. This whisk is 10 inches long.
