Wet the bamboo whisk before you use it. When it is dry, it becomes brittle and easy to break.
Store the bamboo whisk on a whisk keeper after using it or in a dry place. This will help the whisk to retain its shape.
If the handle develops a tiny crack, we recommend you continue using the the whisk as long as it is usable.
Bamboo bristle tips are slightly curled before use. The tips will usually uncurl after the first or second use.
Tip for Whisking:
When you prepare matcha, whisk slowly over the entire bottom of the matcha bowl with the whisk´s bristle tips. Whisk the upper half of the matcha brew, moving the whisk quickly like writing the letter “W.” In doing so you will create a nice and delicious frothy matcha.
