The OXO Good Grips 11-inch Better Balloon Whisk feels comfortable in your hands and makes quick work of whisking jobs without getting bent out of shape.
The OXO Good Grips 11-inch Better Balloon Whisk earned our spot for top pick thanks to its sturdy wires, lightweight design, and satisfaction guarantee.
It comes in classic stainless steel or silicone-coated style, but unless you are looking for a whisk you can use on non-stick cookware, the stainless steel whisk is preferable since it has 10 loops versus the silicone version’s eight loops. Plus, the silicone-coated whisk is only rated up to 600 degrees Fahrenheit.
Regardless of which whisk style you choose, OXO’s whisk has the celebrated ergonomic, non-slip handle that keeps your hands from growing tired before your task is done. The loops are strong enough to take on most whisking tasks and it’s also dishwasher safe and easy to clean. If you do encounter any problems, OXO offers a standard satisfaction guarantee.
