Material: zacaton plant root
Care: Put the whisk into boiling water for a few minutes prior to initial use. This process will make the whisk tougher and more resilient. Wash out after every use and leave to air dry. If the whisk has food remnants between individual root segments, fill up one of the now clean dishes you were washing with water and shake the whisk vigorously in the water to dislodge the food remnants.
