Occasionally, a new tool comes onto the market that makes you think, “Now why didn’t anyone come up with this before?” Here’s one of them: Cuisipro’s whisk with an instant-read digital thermometer built right in. The temperature probe is in the whisk wires, and the digital readout is in the handle. Heat from your hand has no effect on the reading.

This clever marriage of two essential tools eliminates the awkward situation of trying to whisk a pot of custard sauce with one hand while holding a thermometer in the other to monitor the temperature. Also handy for tempering chocolate and making cooked meringues and hollandaise-style sauces, thermometer whisks come in a few shapes and sizes. Our favorite is this 11-inch French sauce whisk ($25 at Williams-Sonoma.com). A larger balloon whisk and a flat whisk are also available.
