I have a rather old plastic whisk that does the job if I want to whisk up something quickly without having to get out one of the electric beaters. But it is uncomfortable to use and it is really thick and it isn’t very efficient.
So if you have one of these thick plastic whisks or an old bent, rusty metal whisk, my advice is “Toss it Out’ and get yourself a Le Creuset Balloon Silicone Whisk.
This whisk is 100% silicone coated and you will find that it will flex when you need it to, but it will keep its shape and its color after use. The ergonomic handle gives you a nice easy, comfortable grip.
The wires are fully encased in silicone so it won’t scratch the surface of your precious Le Creuset cookware.
And you can use it safely on your nonstick and metal cookware. The Le Creuset balloon silicone whisk is stain resistant and will not absorb food flavors.
It is heat resistant to 800° F and it stays cool in pans on the burner.
The whisk cleans up easily by hand in soapy water or you can simply pop it in the dishwasher.
The majority of people who have purchased this whisk just love it and find that it whisks quickly and efficiently. You can read the reviews for the Le Creuset Balloon Silicone Whisk at Amazon.com

The Le Creuset Pate Terrine is one of those pieces of cookware that really isn’t all that necessary when you think about it but if you are a fan of pate and make your own then you will love it. And if we think outside of the box here it really isn’t limited to just cooking pate. You can even use this for meatloaf, cakes, breads and sweet or savory terrines.
The Le Creuset Pate Terrine is made from enameled cast iron which is perfect for the slow heating required for cooking pates. It also means you don’t have the problem of having to season the cast iron nor the problems associated with foods contaminating with the cast iron surface.
The terrine comes with a tight fitting lid with a vent to allow steam to escape.
What We Like
- The terrine looks good enough to take to the table.
- The cast iron makes this strong and durable and it should easily last a lifetime.
- The terrine is dishwasher safe so you won’t need to hand wash this one.
- It comes with a lifetime warranty.
What We Don’t Like
- Cast iron is heavy so those with arthritis or weak muscles may find this a little hard to manage.
- This is not a cheap piece of cookware but it is one that will last a lifetime.
