Customer Reviews

These worked perfectly when I was scrambling eggs.
Peggy G. Wheeler
It has a large grip that is easy on the hand and it is very well weighted.

This whisk is so stury, I doubt I will ever have to buy another.

When shopping for a whisk last year I was tempted to get a somewhat cheaper one, until my husband pointed out that this one was particularly well-made, and the ferrule joined seamlessly with the wires -- which meant no food residue trapped inside, easier cleaning and no rusting. Trust me, not all whisks have wires sealed in at the base!
Well, he was right. The contoured, easy-grip handle is a bonus. This whisk is so stury, I doubt I will ever have to buy another. It's also a good medium size, versatile for eggs and everything else I've ever needed a whisk for. Perfect!

As Norah Jones is singing something about love being a lost balloon, I am sitting here contemplating the sheer beauty of this whisk. Not only is this my new favorite whisk, it is truly well made. While making a custard filling for caramel éclairs (you know those magical éclairs in the Simply Irresistible movie) I found that the balloon shape and the way the wires adapt themselves to the shape of a saucepan was highly desirable.

For one thing, you don't want any clumping in a sauce or custard and things do tend to get clumpy if you can't get into the inner edge of a saucepan. With a bit of pressure, you can whisk into every inch of a saucepan. This is not always possible with a plastic whisk which is definitely not as flexible.

The handle on this whisk makes it easy to keep a grip and OXO is known for their ergonomic considerations. I think of it as an almost suede rubber that is not only comfortable to hold, it allows your hand to grip the handle more firmly.

Now the reason the 10 stainless-steel wires are so sturdy is because they are sealed into the base with a clear resin material. This also prevents food from building up and I throw this whisk in the dishwasher without fear.

If you bang the wires against your hand you can see how sturdy this whisk is and I can almost imagine that somewhere in the world someone is using this whisk as a musical instrument.

I love this whisk. It has a large grip that is easy on the hand and it is very well weighted. The steel is very high quality and a wonder to clean. I make more salad dressings and french toast just to use my whisk! I really recommend buying this tool. It's great!

I couldn't decide between the 9" or 11", but I bought this one first to see if it would work for smaller jobs. I still may get a 9" non-balloon whisk, but more because I use my whisk a lot and hate cleaning by hand in between dishwasher runs. This whisk is perfect for baking because it aerates so well and is sturdy and comfortable. It doesn't work as well on just one or two eggs, but I still use it for now. The big plusses about this particular whisk are the handle and construction. As with all OXO good grip products, it is sturdy, comfy, and looks great.

The all stainless steel handle looks much nicer than this rubber one, but don't even think about it unless you're whisking something watery for only a couple minutes. When i'm preparing egg whites or baking, the handle makes a huge difference so I can continuously whisk. If you are planning to whisk egg whites at all, make sure you get a good grips whisk, whatever the size and shape. Also, a rounded, uncoated, copper bowl is mandatory.

Nice large size. Very comfy handle. Dishwasher safe. My old whisk had 5 wire loops that would jam into each other and bend funny (piece of junk). The Good Grips 11" balloon whisk has 10 wire loops that don't come into contact with each other, allowing for more thorough whisking. The plug in the handle where the wire loops go though is heavily sealed, keeping it very sanitary. It's really durable. It can whip up a half a dozen eggs in a big mixing bowl super quick (that's the most I've tried -- I'm sure it can do more). Also great for large gravy making at Thanksgiving. Other than discoloration of the wire loops (after much use and dishwasher cleanings) it still looks and feels new.

I use this for small jobs that I don't want to get a hand mixer our for. I love the fact that it is metal and not nylon, but I wish the very end had a bit of a pointed tip. It would make it much more useful when making gravy on a saucepan on the stove. Other than that, it is great and makes awesome pancakes and scrambled eggs.

I didn't like my old whisk because it would slowly rust and come apart at the handle. This one does not do that.
