Or it could be that it is on back order.

This is my favorite sauce, roux whisk, it gets all over the bottom of the pan. It has a bend in the handle so that it sits flat in the bottom of the pan. Ours came as part of a set from Ikea, and if it breaks I'll have another immediately.

Kuhn Rikon is a Swiss company. Perhaps it comes to America by snow ski and rowing boat

I would order the MIU, which is almost identical to the one you were looking at. It is $3 more, but it's in stock and ships via Amazon Prime.

I was thinking of ordering the MIU, but one of the reviewers said it discolored. Sur la Table has the Kuhn, and it's not far from me.

I have a small and a large spring coil whisks. Use one or the other every time I make salad dressing. I usually make a single or double batch of salad dressing straight in a jar or Pyrex measuring cup - enough for one or two heads of lettuce. This way I dirty only one vessel and the jar can go in the fridge if necessary. Springs whisks seem to work better in a down and upward motion and IMHO their main plus is being able to use them in jars or very small bowls that tend to be taller than wide - if I have to "whisk" in a circular motion I find a regular whisk of the balloon style to be more effective and much easier to use. My $.02.

I have a small one that I got at the old Lechmere's store in Cambridge more than 40 years ago. Great for doing one egg. It came with a set of kitchen tools in miniature. I lost all the others, but still have this one whisk that I use all the time. I also have a larger one from the Dollar Store. Ready to toss it and get a newer one. Wires are all bent. What do you expect for $1.00?

I had a spring whisk many moons ago and somewhere along the line it disappeared.
Until you mentioned it I hadn't thought about it and come to think of it, I never liked it anyway.

My favorite regular whisks are Vollrath whisks from the restaurant supply store, they are the only ones that I haven't managed to destroy!
