I have the ASDA Premium Stainless Steel Top Tier Whisk which I've used for about the last 12 months or so. It's not something I use everyday, but it is something I use regularly, whether it's for baking or even for making scrambled eggs. The ASDA Premium Stainless Steel Top Tier Whisk cost me £3.50, which I feel is a really good price and a price that I was very happy to pay. This whisk is essentially a basic whisk, but it's well made and stands up to the tasks that it's presented with. It is a hand whisk and so it's suitable for those tasks that are better suited to be done by hand because in the day of the electric whisk there are certainly some things for which the electric whisk would be preferable! However, for a hand whisk, this one is very good.
The main part of the whisk is made of stainless steel and so it's very strong and not liable to bend out of shape - which I have had happen with hand whisks I've used in the past. Because the whisk is strong, it cuts through mixtures fairly easily, which makes my job a lot easy. Because it is made of stainless steel, it doesn't rust, corrode or stain and so that is obviously very advantageous for a metal that's going to spend the majority of its time in wet damp mixtures.
The whisk has a soft grip handle and so it is comfortable to hold and doesn't rub. It also means that the handle is non-slip and so even if my hands are wet I can get a good grip on the whisk.
It is also dishwasher safe and so I can just bung it in the dishwasher when I'm done.
Overall, I think this is a good product and I recommend it.
If you read my spatula review you will already know I'm a keen cake baker and to help me with my cake baking experience I've been using this ASDA Top Tier Whisk. I was given this whisk a little while ago and as I have found it a good product to assist me while baking I decided to review it.
~ ASDA Top Tier Whisk~
This whisk is stainless steel with a black soft grip handle, it's what I'd call a full size whisk as I know you can get lots of different size whisks these days. I do have an electric whisk but most the time I like to whisk my cake mixes manually. The whisk is comfortable to hold and use due to the soft grip handle, it's easy for me to keep hold of when vigorous whisking is called for. The actual whisk part is very well made, not cheap and nasty like lots of other whisks I've got through in my time. It's what I'd call a very sturdy and strong whisk, its withheld quite a bit of abuse whilst I've had it and I don't know about before I had it but it seems to be lasting well, since it wasn't new when I first used it, I am quite impressed with the excellent condition it remains in.
If I had a dishwasher, this whisk would be fine to wash that way, but as it is, I wash it by hand and it always comes up nice and shiny. I find this whisk very useful and because it is so easy to hold and use I find myself using it quite often.
As regards price, well I didn't buy it, but scanning the internet I found this whisk available to buy from ASDA direct for £3.50. Now to be honest I was shocked when I saw the price of it, had I been looking to buy this myself I think I would have opted for a cheaper version elsewhere. However because I didn't know the price before hand and had already decided that the whisk was indeed a good one, I think that maybe the whisk is actually worth the money. It seems to be lasting well and just by looking at it briefly, I can tell how well made it is.
~If only we could try before we buy~
It is a shame we don't get to try out all the things we are interested in buying, even before we know the price of it, because like I mentioned about the whisk, on seeing the price of it, I would have moved on to another one if I had been looking to buy and I would never have experienced using it and finding out how good it is. I know price is a big factor when we are looking to purchase something and quite often we look at the price and instantly dismiss it because it is to expensive, I do this quite often and I'm sure I can't be the only one. But at the end of the day, we do get what we pay for and by paying a little more we more often than not get something better. This whisk is a fine example because I wouldn't have paid £3.50 for it straight off, but because I got to test it out, then I would have quite happily paid £3.50 for it.
5 stars for this ASDA Top Tier Whisk because it's worth it.
