When I was asked if I would like to review a whisk it was going to be a polite 'no thank you', but I thought I would take a look at the you tube video mentioned in the email anyway....
Once I'd seen the video I was sold, I loved the look of this new gadget, and a woman can never have too many gadgets right?
I received my Nova whisk in green and set it to work straight away on my morning cappuccino. I usually use my Kitchen Aid hand blender to froth my milk but it can be a bit of a faff to get out of the posh carry case every time I need it, however the Nova whisk is slim enough to keep in my utensil pot.
Just a few effortless presses on the whisk & the milk frothed up beautifully, ready to pour onto my freshly brewed coffee.
It's not just for frothing milk, and as can be seen in the video it has a number of uses - milkshakes, omelette batter, pancake batter, whisking cream and egg whites.
I decided to give the boys an after school treat and whisked them up a milkshake to share - it didn't froth up the cold milk as well as the hot but it was still lovely & frothy without any effort.
2 heaped tsp Nutella
1/2 pint Milk
scoop of ice cream
- Mix the Nutella with a little boiling water - enough to make a syrup, allow to cool slightly
- Whisk the milk and ice cream together until frothy
- Whisk the Nutella syrup into the milk, reserving a little for later
- Top with quirty cream, the remaining Nutella sauce and chocolate chips
- Serve immediately
I was provided with a Nova Whisk for the purpose of this review
