The Danish Dough Whisk

Sep

Post by community member:

Or some call it a Polish Dough Whisk.


I didn’t know such a thing existed! Until the Retreat and Sonia had one. I spied it during the Homemade Beauty Products class…it was just sitting there looking intriguing.

I had to know what it was.

And I, being me, was trying to figure out how to make one. It’s just one piece of stainless steel heavy gauge wire wrapped around in loops and stuck into a wood handle.

By the time I was done with my inquisition, I had it all figured out. I was just wondering where I could find some food safe stainless steel heavy gauge wire.

Then, sweet Sonia GAVE IT TO ME! She just gave it up! This is the neatest, manual kitchen gadget I’ve seen in quite awhile.

The wide open loops allow you to mix dough (yeast doughs, cookie doughs, stiff doughs, light doughs) without it getting clogged or your wooden spoon getting all gunky.

It’s been sitting pretty on the counter ever since I got home. I finally used it to make bread! (It’s been a slow recovery of getting back to normal. B.R. (before Retreat) bread went into the freezer and I haven’t had to bake in a while.)

I even added a couple tablespoons (or so!) of the True Homemade Honey beekeeper Angela P brought me.

I need bees! This is the best honey I’ve ever had…even of that I’ve bought locally. This is unpasteurized, which must be what makes it better.
Thank you, Ang!

Think of the Danish Dough Whisk as a manual KitchenAid. It wasn’t rough using. I just kept whipping it around until it formed a ball of dough.

Sonia said she flops it out and gives it a quick knead, so I did, too. But I don’t think it needed it.

And look how clean my bowl is!

I absolutely love this, Sonia, thank you, thank you, Thank You!

    I too had to have one, and LOVE mine! I asked for one at Lehmans when I stopped there on the way home from retreat. They didn’t have one called “Danish” but showed me a picture of the “Polish” one. It was the same tool, and only $4 too! After getting it home and washing it, I noticed the little sticker on the bottom of it that said, “Made In Poland.” HUH! I guess that answers that question!

    I have one just like this and bought it from the King Arthur Flour website. I have the large one and use it all the time for making bread and cinnamon rolls. I love it and plan on ordering the smaller one also.

    I want one, too, but alas, have had to give up most hand mixing due to the aging wrists.

    Enjoy! They really look useful!!

    Blyss, you were lucky to get one for $4. They are $9.95-$12.95 on the website in the Lehmans catalog.

    Hmmm…I might actually start making home made bread if I can get my hands on one of those. That is awesome!

    Brookdale, I noticed a LOT of things are cheaper in the store than through the catalog or online… and that is not counting shipping either! I am not sure why that is, but I noticed some of the other things I bought there were more expensive if I ordered more. Depending on where you live, it might be a fun trip to just go visit…. and shop of course!

    After I saw the picture of the clean bowl, I just HAD to have one. Ended up ordering 2 of them. You can get them from Brotform.com pretty inexpensively (much higher from King Arthur). Check this out from Brotform.
    1 x Danish Dough Whisk 11.5” (JL-00200) = $6.79
    1 x Danish Dough Whisk Size Large (JL-00201) = $7.09

    oh… thank you Debbie!
    I was just putting this on my wishlist, but at those prices, I might just go ahead and get one now.

    Thanks Cindy for posting about this – I don’t make much bread, but I hope that’ll change in the future!

    I ordered one of these from Lehman’s and it came today. I used it to mix up my bread dough…worked like a charm! Love it! I still had to knead of course, but it was easier than using a spoon to mix. Thanks for posting this. Love to learn about new gadgets. I wonder what else you can use it for?
