The reason this whisk is better than the others is because no food can get at the bottom where the handle and whisk part meet. It is filled with some type of epoxy or equivalent and works great.
Only downside with this whisk is the two piece part. The top section has a thick plastic piece that inserts into the bottom and worked great for years, but eventually the plastic piece broke recently.
I will be buying another one of these because there is not one I found that is better. If they could make this a one piece design that would be great.
Easy to clean 5/5 *****
Easy to hold 5/5 *****
Sturdiness 5/5 *****
My recommendation 5/5 *****
The back habdle material started to drop black specs into my food on the first use.
Maybe i was beating it to vigorously.
I suppose if you were you wisk very gently there would be no problem.
They should have put that in the description.
For gentle wisking only.
Also if it had been eggs, i may have been able to say it was pepper, but it was whipped cream, and i was using vanilla extract.
Just buy a different wisk
It’s also easy to store, since the wire is flexible without being too bendy.

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 rubber handle on this whisk is very well made and makes it easy to keep a firm grip all the times even with wet hands/
The 10 stainless steel wires are very sturdy because they are sealed into the base of the handle with a clear resin material preventing food from being trapped and also making it easy to clean.
The medium size in my opinion makes it versatile for eggs, cream and everything else you'll ever need a whisk for.
You can wash it in the dishwasher without fear!
I absolutely suggest this product

Very easy to hold, no grip burn that I used to get. The wire is sturdy and mixes brilliantly. Plus there is a good weight behind it which takes out some of the effort when hand mixing.
Cleans up nicely and came out fine from the dishwasher.
The Oxo whisk, on the other hand, is an absolute joy to use. It is neither too lightweight, nor too heavy; it has just the right amount of weight behind it, making it perfectly balanced. This ensures easy, more efficient whipping so you won't be working at that bowl of cream for what seems like a lifetime. The handle has a nice soft grip to it preventing unwanted friction whilst in use and the wider shape makes it feel very natural to hold. It also washes up easily by hand since there's no fiddly silicone covering on it but is indeed dishwasher safe too.
As a professional chef, I have used many types and brands of whisks in work and something which can be quite common is the wires coming loose after heavy usage. The wires on the Oxo whisk, however, are very sturdy without being clunky and are held firmly in place with a little resin giving this whisk the longevity that many cheaper whisks lack. That being said, it's also great value for how well designed it is.
If you are someone who is looking for one good quality, versatile whisk and are not sure which size to choose, I’d recommend you go for the 11 inch (28cm) over the smaller 9 inch one. The 11 inch is a good all-rounder, whereas the actual head of the latter is probably smaller that you would imagine. The size and extra wire in the larger version will also mean for less strenuous work on your arm!
Overall, this is a wonderful product from a highly regarded company, that I see myself using for many years to come.
