Push Whisk

  • Is named for how it is used (being pushed upon).
  • Whisk head spins vigorously when the handle is pushed.
  • Sometimes referred to as a "frothing", "rotating" or "spin" whisk.
  • One of several whisk types.
handle and tines are noted

Push whisks are likely the fastest moving stirring device that is manually driven. The rate at which it spins is very fast and the motion used (pushing on the handle) is very natural and easy to do.

Most push whisks will have a similar looking head. The heads can be described as having 8 to 10 tines (stiff wires) each having a triangular shape with one loop near the bottom of whisk.

This shape is seen on frothing tools and is immediately recognizable.

The shaft of the tool has a tip at the bottom which doeas not move. This allows the tool to spin around freely without being slowed by the bottom of bowl or container being used.
