One of our students from our English conversation class, brought all us teachers a present from a trip home to Pakistan. I don’t know what this kitchen tool is called, and I have never seen on anywhere else but it is so useful!
For a while I didn’t use, it just sat in the wooden tub where all the spoons, whisks and stirrers are, but one day I was having problem with lumps… I can’t remember now whether they were lumps in custard or white sauce or cheese sauce, but I had lumps. I picked up this thingmy and put it into the sauce then rubbed the spindle between my hands as if I was trying to light a fire with a piece of wood. I rolled it vigorously then gave the sauce a stir… lump free! It was amazing, so easy, so quick, so effective.
I use it frequently now, especially with soups, or when I’m trying to thicken something and I want it to be smooth and lovely. I could imagine if you were making hot chocolate in the old-fashioned way, or a milk shake or smoothy type of drink then this would be really handy. If ever you see one, definitely buy it… you’ll be amazed at how good it is, and it doesn’t use any power except muscle-power!
