A 'French' whisk (together with its balloon shaped brother) is an essential piece of kit for both professional and domestic kitchens alike. It is composed of a series of overlapping flexible wires which join together at the handle. Its shape is different than a balloon whisk, however, in that it is longer and narrower. Like the balloon whisk, this is an all-purpose tool.
Our regular version from Best of the Standard French Whisk is of a medium weight making it ideal for a multitude of kitchen tasks. Its narrow profile allows it to better whisk and scrape right to the edges of bowls and pans, so it is a favoured tool for mixing sauces or ingredients which are being combined in a deep pan. Dishwasher safe.
