I went looking for a silicone whisk today. I keep rusting my metal ones. Said confession will show that I tend to leave dishes in water longer than I should, I guess, but regardless of how it happens, my whisks run to rust. I recently bought a Faberware silicone spoon and loved it, so I thought I'd give their whisk a try. I used it tonight and at first I was a little uncertain. The lack of resistance felt odd at first. However, by the time my roux was done, I was in love with it.
Of course, now I've run across negative reviews saying that water tends to pool in the handle in the dishwasher. . . Given my propensity to let dishwater sit. . .. On the other hand, given how much I paid for it ($7, an unheard of amount for me to fling out on a kitchen utensil), I expect I'll take good care of it.

My other exiting purchase was pint-and-a-half wide mouth mason jars! Have you ever?!?!
I can't be the only one who has filled up a pint and needed more or poured into a quart and had too much room left over.
Furthermore, I'll only use wide mouth jars--can someone tell me why they even still make those tiny mouthed ones?
Anyhow, I am over-the-top excited about these jars--despite the fact that I've got to wash them first.
