1. When brown sugar or salt clumps up due to humidity, use a whisk to break up the blocks and get those crystals to behave.
2. Most people use a fork to scramble their eggs, but a whisk is the secret to rock-star omelets and eggs. More air means more fluff!
3. If you don’t have an ice cream machine, use a bowl, the freezer and a whisk. Put your ice cream base in the icebox and whisk every 20 minutes until set. I’ve made tons of sorbets like this when my machine went out.
