Whip Up Delicious Foods With The Norpro Balloon Wire Whisks
This delightful set of wire whisks can make your cooking days much simpler. Available in three different sizes – 6 inch, 8 inch, 10 inch – the whisks are made from stainless steel and a 7 wire construction. They are used to beat air into food mixtures and create a light, airy texture. Although hand washing is recommended, they can be tossed in the dishwasher for a quick clean-up. When reviewing the product, I found that the majority of people thought highly of these wire whisks, especially with their affordable cost. Reviewers enjoyed the three different sizes that make it possible to create all types of mixtures, including omelets, vinaigrettes and batters.
Whether working with wet or dry ingredients, these handheld whisks seem to handle it all. Lots of reviewers were pleasantly surprised to see just how sturdy these wire whisks are, despite their economical cost. Most had no issues with the whisks breaking, bending or melting, even in extreme conditions. Reviewers were happy with the three different sizes, although many found that they worked best with one or two of the sizes, instead of balancing between all three.
People also reported how easy and lightweight the whisks are to use, making it especially simple to add in the air. Generally speaking, the whisks are best for lighter creations such as mixing eggs or puddings. Although the product is recommended for hand washing, the majority of reviewers said they placed the balloon whisks in the dishwasher with no problems regarding rust or tarnishing.
A few of the reviewers felt that the whisks were too small, especially the smallest size. Even those who were happy with the product felt that a fork could produce the same results as the smallest whisk. However, with the affordability of these wire whisks, it’s almost like you’re paying for one whisk and getting two for free, which is why most people didn’t seem to mind.
So What’s The Scoop?
I would highly recommend these stainless steel wire whisks, and would be willing to add them to my kitchen at any time. They’re a bargain and won’t put a dent in the pocketbook, so even occasional use of the product would be worth the cost. With the different sizes, you can teeter back and forth between whisks, and their lightweight structure makes them easy to hold and clean. If you’re looking for heavy duty whisks that will handle thick batters however, you may want to invest in a higher quality set from Kuhn Rikon.
