I have OCD. Without shame. Some things irk me, like unmixed chunks of flour in dough mixes.
Sometimes, it is my fault – the wrong bowl, wrong spoon, wrong time. In spite of these, when the stars align, I’m in heaven.
Some of my favourite things are square quart storage/ mixing bowls. They remind me of American chefs, like David Chang who store their fine creations in them. Pretty but sometimes, when I mix up flour and attempt to use my dough whisk, I get stuck. I end up with chunks and powder in the curved corners because the whisk can’t get in there and make a fine mixture of it.
Enter my omorogun (Turning stick) from Aga concept.
It wins on three counts:
- long handled
- flat sides
- tapered end
And if that wasn’t enough, I made a video too 🙂
