I'll stick with a wooden spoon
on April 19, 2011
I make a very moist dough, that featured in "Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day", fairly easy to stir but rather sticky. I make a batch every day or two. I find it as easy to stir my dough with a wooden spoon, and the spoon is a lot easier to clean.
This whisk has multiple points at which dough is very prone to stick, and difficult to clean. Particularly the place at which the wire joins the handle, a spot difficult to reach with a scrubber, the dough gets caught badly. The unfinished wood of the handle is also very sticky for dough.
Also, the 11 inch is really too small for more than a single loaf, in my opinion. The labeling on the web site is a bit confusing, in that some vendors describe this as "small" and some as "11 inch".
