I’m a teacher and avid home cook; I likes to think of myself as self-taught, but I of course have been influenced by others. I like geeking out in the kitchen with new recipes, techniques, and equipment.

Several years ago, I purchased a Le Creuset 7 1/4 Quart Round Dutch Oven. Well technically a French oven, since it’s enameled, but that’s besides the point. I love this piece of kitchen equipment because it’s large enough to do big batches of soups and stews, and it can hold in the heat for long braises and slow cooking. However, it’s an expensive piece of kitchen equipment, and I wanted to protect it. I came across many recipes that asked me to whisk inside the enameled pot, and this concerned me; I was afraid that I was going to chip away and scratch the enamel! This is similar to my concerns of using a whisk in a nonstick pan, so I went out looking for the best whisk for nonstick pans.
Yes, you can use a whisk in non stick pans and enamelled cookware if you have a whisk that’s built specifically for protecting nonstick cookware! To my delight, I found a great solution: The Cuisipro 10-inch Silicone Egg Whisk. Here is my review:
Review of the Best Silicone Whisk for Nonstick Pans and Cookware
This balloon style whisk is lightweight and feels natural in the hand. The wires are firm enough to easily whisk up custards, scrambled eggs, gravy, and meringues. The reason for the firmness is that it’s not a non-metal whisk; instead, it’s a regular stainless steel whisk with a silicone coating applied to protect the nonstick surfaces of pans and other cookware. The wires of the whisk are heat resistant up to 750F, so you will never have to worry about accidentally leaving it in the pot. The whisk comes with a beautiful stainless steel handle, and the wires are available in three colors: frosted and red. The whisk is also dishwasher safe.
I’ve now owned this whisk for a few years, and it still works like new. I highly recommend it for your enameled and nonstick pans, pots, and other cookware.
