- The wire whip is used primarily for incorporating air into:
- egg whites
- whipping cream
- some candies
- angel food cake
- The current wire whip has stainless steel wires and a hub made of burnished aluminum.
- Because the hub is burnished aluminum, the wire whip is not dishwasher safe.
- If washed repeatedly in the dishwasher the hub will become pitted and give off a grayish residue.
NOTE: If you use the wire whip for cookies, batters, mashed potatoes or other mixtures, the tines may separate from the hub.
The flat beater is intended to be used for those.
