I love new fangled kitchen gadgets, but wouldn't trade my old fashioned, heavy duty egg beater.
Why? A zillion reasons. For one, my grandmother used one and every time I use mine, I'm reminded of cooking with her. Then, I like using hand power knowing that if the grid goes down, I can still make whipped cream. Finally, I enjoy putting my energy into my food, feeling a connection with the eggs as they get frothy and the raw cream as it whips up. It's just plain satisfying to feel the power of the beaters create a tasty treat.
