To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This one little instrument replaces FIVE [count-em] utensils I otherwise ordinarily use: a whisk for early stirring of doughs, a wooden spoon for final mixes, a big chop stick I use for stirring my sourdough starter when I feed it, and a fork for mixing pancake batter, scone dough and Welsh-cake dough. Now this one does it all - and better. And the clean-up is easier! What more can you ask of a device? And yes, as has been noted, that hole in the wood where the whisk enters is a minor problem, easily fixed by a strategic squirt of silicone sealer to fill it in. I really recommend doing this and then never having to worry about it.
This dough whisk is really good quality, its very strong and doesn't bend easily at all I definitely can't see this whisk breaking. The handle is smooth pretty and feels comfortable in my hand with no splintering and as you can see from my photos it's around 13" long which makes it easy to work with. I'm definitely happy I've added this to my baking supplies. Hope this was helpful 😊
As I've averred on these pages before, I am not a Gadget Girl. Like Alton Brown, I like most of my kitchen utensils to serve multiple purposes. I almost never buy a "one trick pony" for my kitchen.
But I had to make an exception for this Danish dough whisk. As a person of very recent Danish ancestry, I had never heard of these little miracle workers, but I was surfing YouTube watching kitchen shows one day and saw Chris Thingummie of Cook's Country report on how terrific they are. And so I came to Amazon and found one, and bought it, and OMG THIS THING IS AMAZING!
It's the simplest of gadgets: a sturdy wooden handle joined to a swizzle of stout wire. Looking at it, you would not think "that's going to mix up a huge bowl of bread dough with ferocious ease and efficiency!" And yet - it does! This whisk makes mixing up dough an absolute BREEZE. It is so much freaking better than a spoon that I almost can't describe it.
I sent my mother one, which she uses to rip through double batches of very stiff biscotti batter in a trice. I use mine to make bread a few times a week.
So far the whisk has stood up to hard use and not faltered. It appears to be constructed to go the distance.
I give it only 4 stars for "ease of cleaning" because you do have to use a stiff brush to get every speck of dough from between the wires. It is 100% worth that bit of extra effort.
Very good quality whisk from China. Wood handle has been sanded very well. No rough edges. I haven't used it yet, but the whisk part is not flexible at all. Very sturdy to mix in a stainless steel bowl. Not sure about mixing in a glass bowl. The whisk part is thick stainless steel. Not sure if it is USDA food quality steel or not.
Never used one before. I just made the No Need Pizza Dough recipe in half the time with half the effort. The curve of the tool fit better and worked better against the side of the stainless steel bowl for getting that last thin coat of flour dough scraped and incorporated (completely removed it, which also defied common sense that wire would when a spoon and scraper often does not), and very little (almost no) dough stuck to the tool making cleanup a cinch as well. Didn't have any dough (in a 2.33 lbs/1060 g batch) get anywhere near the handle insert area either, but also liked others' suggestions of putting some silicone or epoxy in the hole. Can't wait to try it with other sorts of mixes.
