Great, but overpriced here
on January 7, 2014
I love this thing. I use it to whisk eggs up or I can put the metal part in a hot pan when I'm making hot chocolate (I heard somewhere that hot chocolate drinkers are some of the happiest people around -just doing my part for humanity). I've found that using a light bouncing motion is the best thing to do with this. It shouldn't be depressed all the way down forcefully, just kind of bounced up and down with the hand.
I would only use this for soups without stuff in it (just liquid, no stuff in it), eggs or drinks. I can't see this taking on whipping cream. Too much work too -just use a hand mixer.
Easy care -I recommend hand washing it...I wouldn't put mine into a dishwasher. Just wash the metal part off.
It's overpriced here. Go to a very well-known auction site and don't pay any more than $10 or $15 for this gadget.
Update: It's June 2014 (orig. review written in Jan 2014) and I still use this.
