    Honestly, I would probably never use it, because it looks mini.  It’s a cute idea though.  I always think it’s best to stick with edible favors.

    I would personally use it, but most of my friends & family would throw it away. Since he’s a chef, maybe something edible? Or a favorite recipe wrapped up with some candies or a specialty spice or something?

    i really like it, and since your FI is a chef it will add a personal touch 🙂 maybe you could get your FI to make some edible favours to go with?

    I use a mini whisk all the time, and I think that’s adorable, even better that FI is a chef!!  Cute and personal.  I think people will look at it and smile.

    I’d leave it behind. I have enough whisks.

    i may use it b/c i love to cook but i can’t answer that question for your guests.  do your guests like to cook?  would they appreciate it?  i would have to say that only 50% of my guests would use it.

    I love the idea, but don’t know how useful they’d be! They’re cute though!

    It’s a cute idea, and I may or may not use it, but I can see how many people would not.  (people who have many of these items already, people who don’t cook, a single guy in his 20’s who doesn’t want to get harrassed when he might have company over, ect…)

    I like it, and would bring it home, and put it in my utensil drawer.  I’m not sure how often I would use it, but it is cute 🙂

    It is cute, but I think if every single guest were to get one, most of them would go to waste. Couples & families would only need one between/among them, and even then not all of them would get used.

    So, I guess it depends on whether you’re going more for “cute,” or “useful.”

    If you did decide to go with this, maybe you could print up a couple of recipe cards with “Our Favorite Recipes” and tie them to the whisks? That would add a cool personal touch – and maybe increase the likelihood that guests would put them to use!

    ETA: ha ha, just saw that you beat me to it on the recipe thing!
