Spring whisks

Has anyone tried this spring whisk?

Kuhn Rikon 10-Inch Galaxy Spring Whisk : Amazon.com : Kitchen & Dining

If so, what types of things do you use it for in recipes?

I use it for emulsifying dressings. Making mayonnaise, etc.

Do you have that particular whisk or another one? I looked on Amazon and there's also one called Mia.

My mother had a spring whisk that she just called a gravy whisk, and that's all she used it for. I don't think she ever owned a regular balloon whisk.

Along with several conventional whisks, we have a silicone coated one that looks like this:

I have a couple of the colorful silicon whisks for use in my Caphalon pans.

Have you noticed the time required for shipping? For such a small and inexpensive item, does anyone really want to wait THAT long?

1-2 months - that's crazy. It's eligible for 2-day shipping with Amazon Prime, though. Wonder if that's a marketing tactic

I am a Prime member but sometimes it takes more than 2 days ( sometimes it comes the next day).

In this case I can't expect it until Feb. 12-27.

I have never liked spring whisks. It's all my mother ever had and I thought they were hard to use. I have several balloon whisks and a straight whisk.

But I'm thinking that a spring whisk would be good at getting stuff out of the edges of pans. Maybe I'll reconsider ....

I think it is more of a typo. Someone needs to notify Amazon.
