There are more types of whisks than most may expect, and each carries out its own individual purpose in the kitchen.

However, it is nonetheless important to identify the differences and then make wise decisions based on your personal cooking needs.

Egg whisks, flat whisks, balloon whisks, silicone whisks galore! There are many to choose from. The most common and favored whisk type is the balloon whisk which is most likely the first image of a standard whisk that comes to mind. It’s optimal for whipping light substances such as egg whites and cream. Like a balloon, the tip is round and covers a large surface area compared to most whisks, allowing for lightweight whipping.

What is a whisk used for?

Aren’t all whisks designed to whip light substances? This may leave you questioning what a flat whisk is used for, for example. A flat whisk has fewer wires and is best used for preparing thick sauces and gravies. Its design almost resembles a spoon, which is what makes it more accessible for cleaning down the sides of the saucepan as opposed to using a balloon whisk. 
An egg whisk, also commonly referred to as the French whisk, is similar to the balloon whisk except it is relatively smaller with the wires closer together. Its perfect use is eggs, of course! Whether whites or yolks, an egg whisk is a perfect choice for baking. Every now and then there are brands that innovate the existing and you’re in the market for a whisk that is truly exciting, browse our selection of Cuisipro whisks.
