Over my many years of cooking, I have tried a variety of cooking gadgets and tools. One such instrument is the often used “whisk”. It’s hard to imagine any kitchen without one! I still have a few old ones stashed in my kitchen drawers. The dutiful ones; however, reside in a crock on my countertop 24/7 – and they are the OXO Good Grips® Whisks. They are my absolute favorites, and to tell the truth, they are just very comfortable in my aging hands.
OXO makes a variety of whisks, so I have several. There are smaller ones, like the 9″ Whisk, which is perfect for use in small bowls and containers. It has a narrow profile; thus, it can handle small jobs much better than a bigger-sized whisk. No matter the size, all OXO whisks allow you to mix with ease, due to their ergonomic design.
Other features I like about their whisks is that their handles don’t slip around your fingers, whether they are wet or dry. The stainless steel wires stand up to a lot of use, and are super easy to clean. While I usually rinse mine by hand, they are also dishwasher-safe. Also, I have never had any rust issues with them … which is a statement I can’t make for the other brands.
Another whisk I like is their 11″ Better Balloon Whisk. Due to its size and balloon shape, it is up to any whipping or whisking job you might have. I usually use this one for medium to large jobs, or for those recipes that result in a thicker or heavier batter. Whichever whisk you prefer, I think you will be pleased with the comfort, service, and durability of these indispensable kitchen tools!
