Have you ever wondered how those wire loops get on a whisk? Or never thought you did but now you do? In this video, the web show CUPS (Cooking Up a Story) goes inside the only U.S. manufacturer of whisks.

"Next to a knife, fork, and spoon, I think it's probably one of the most common tools in a home kitchen," said John Merrifield, who runs the factory with his brother. (I'd like to see him debate that with a spatula manufacturer.) Watch the video, after the jump.
