The OXO SoftWorks Egg Beater combines old-fashioned reliability with updated design for your kitchen. Hold the contoured non-slip grip with either hand and turn the soft knob to activate dual beaters. A stainless steel bridge rests on the bottom of the bowl to elevate the beaters as they turn, reducing hand strain. The Egg Beater's smooth gears are housed in the handle for safety and easy cleanup. When you're finished, remove each beater and the base to clean in the dishwasher. Handle is hand-wash only. Great for whipping eggs, light batters, cream and more to your heart's content.
