Our love for the stand mixer knows no limits. We use it to whip cream for pies and hot chocolate, egg whites for meringues and pavlovas, and cream butter and sugar for all sorts of cookies. The only downside of using the mixer, however, is having to clean it afterwards.

The bowl itself is pretty stress-free—it’s the whisk attachment that causes the most frustration. If it sits with food on it for too long, it becomes almost impossible to scrub off every nook and cranny. Luckily, there’s a new tool specifically designed to solve this problem. It’s called the Whisk Wiper PRO for Stand Mixers, and it’s available on Amazon for just $15. It pretty much comes in every color imaginable: yellow, violet, red, orange, green, blue, clear, and even aquamarine.

Here’s how it works: you’ll attach the Whisk Wiper to the whisk attachment of your KitchenAid stand mixer before you begin mixing. When you’re finished, you’ll slide the Wiper off, taking with you all the residue from the whisk (which can then be returned to the bowl). When you’re ready to clean the bowl, it doubles as a bowl scraper.

If you think this is as genius as we do, go ahead and order the original Whisk Wiper, designed to clean hand-held whisks.
