3D-Printed Adapter Turns Bamboo Skewers Into an Easy-Clean Whisk

If there’s one tool that’s a necessary evil in your kitchen it’s the whisk. Its ability to blend and whip is matched only by its resistance to being cleaned. But if you have access to a 3D printer and a bag of bamboo skewers, this simple adapter could mean you’ll never have to clean out the nook and crannies on a whisk ever again.



The 3D model is available as a free download on MakerBot’s Thingiverse (here), and once brought to life it’s as easy to use as jamming six bamboo skewers into each of its holes. You can even trim the sticks as needed, and after a bit of soaking, cleaning, and drying, there’s no reason you can’t reuse a set of skewers again and again—if only for delicious whisk kebabs.
