The problem with many silicon whisks is that the silicon material used to make the whisking wires is too soft, too flexible, and gives too much such that the whisking effectiveness is substantially reduced. This problem is especially prominent when whisking a thicker batter. It'd be like swimming through molasses.
This Oxo silicone whisk does not have the same problem -- or I should say, the least amount of give (flex) compared to other brands. And it only gives slightly when compared to the Oxo Balloon WIRE whisk made out of stainless steel.
Why do you want to get a silicon whisk, you ask? For two primary reasons: 1) safer on your teflon or ceramic coated pots, pans, and dishes. And 2) food sticks to silicon wire slightly less than stainless.
For most people #2 reason above is not apparent or perhaps not that important, and people are generally correct. However, if you'd observe side by side (take two balloon whisks one made of stainless and one silicone) and whisk up crepe batter, you will find the batter drip off the silicone whisk ever so faster, quicker, cleaner than the comparison stainless whisk. Won't make or break the batter or make or break the recipe, but hey, it's an observable fact and it may be important to some and totally irrelevant to others.
As for reason #1 above, yes, you have to own a good silicone whisk if you own teflon or ceramic coated cookware. I think the reason is pretty self explanatory. You just don't take metal to teflon.
Well, like I said, the silicone material used here is pretty sturdy. It is very comparable (in terms of results and whisking power) to the stainless variant. I'd have to whisk a bit stronger to compensate for the softer material but, again, not significantly so that I'd complaint. Whereas the other products on the market I'd say "nahh, tooo soft.. too difficult to whisk up!"
This whisk is dishwasher safe. The huzzle is stainless, and the grip is comfortable, nonslip. and smooth.
5 Stars given because the product delivered: 1) Function 2) Durability 3) Ease of use and clean 4) Balance of function & elegance and 5) Total, Overall balance of everything mentioned above against the price you pay.
For the price you pay, this is a good whisk.
