This Danish dough hook is so simple but effective. Cookie dough, meat loaf, thick mixtures for casseroles. This baby gets it done with much less stress to the hand. The thick handle & sturdy metal loops allow you to cut through stuff like a dream.
I needed a flat meat pounder. I use it on chicken quite a bit. This one has been perfect.
While making my Mojo I thought this would be better than using the side of a knife to whack garlic cloves. It is does an amazing job with little effort & no chance of slicing my hand.
If you want to smash garlic get a meat pounder.
I'm always on the hunt for utensils that make my life in the kitchen easier. Not electric gadgets. I rather use my own power. I find slicing & dicing meditative. Do you?
