Eliminate the yuck when washing your hand egg beater
on October 25, 2011
For years I dreaded handwashing the old hand egg beater because the flat surfaces on the beater seemed to hold the egg or other gunk especially when I did not wash it right away. It always seemed a germy situation if you know what I mean. Then I saw this on Amazon! OMGoodness, beaters that look like the ones from my handheld electric mixer that can easily be removed and popped in the dishwasher.
If you look closely at the photos here on Amazon, you will see that there are 4 main parts -- two beaters that easily detach (dishwasher safe), a white neck (dishwasher safe) and a handle that is easy to hold (do not put in dishwasher--probably due to the gears in this part?). There are 2 gray buttons on the front and back that you push on to release the white neck part. The gray buttons should work well and the neck should come off easily--I have ordered several as gifts and one did not work properly (appeared it was maybe a previously returned item).
Who would of thought the old classic could see such innovation!
