Pros: cleans up well, comfortable to use, well-designed
Cons: large for a standard drawer

The well-equipped kitchen must have at least one whisk, and probably more. We like to pretend our kitchen is well-equipped, so we have two. Or three. Maybe four... We once had a wire whisk with a wooden handle that lasted perhaps a year. I just wrapped the cracked handle with bright copper wire and that another fifteen or twenty years before we got around to buying a new one – a KitchenAid Utility Whisk.

It looks like what you picture when you hear "whisk": an egg-shaped bundle of springy stainless steel wires set in a crisscross pattern, all stuck into a sturdy handle. This one’s a bit more than a 12” long, including its 5-inch heavy-duty handle. The wires – there are eight of them - bulge out to around 3” in diameter at the widest point. The wires, stainless spring steel, are fixed in place by a stainless ferrule on the end of the handle. That handle, which is available in multiple colors (mine’s red) handle bears the KitchenAid logo and has a wide hole at the top end for hanging. It’s dishwasher-safe, though my experience is that it’s easy to clean by hand: just whip the dish water until it’s frothy, and the whisk gets clean in the process..

I like this one’s heft and balance: it feels sturdy and comfortable, and still feels comfy even after twenty minutes to half an hour of use. The wires are stiff enough for a thick roux-based sauce, yet still delicate enough to whip a frothy milk or egg concoction. Be careful not to use this metal whisk on non-stick coated cookware; you’ll want a nylon or plastic whisk for them.

The one problem I’ve noticed with my whisk is size: the 3” diameter is a little too much for our drawers, so we’re forced to hang it on a rack. It’s also a little large for small saucepans. Overall, though, it’s nice, solid, well-designed and feels good in my hand: a KitchenAid Utility Whisk belongs in your kitchen.
