2020 has been the year of home baking. This may have something to do with the fact that we’re all stuck at home. If you’re like the rest of the world, your kitchen tools have been getting an upgrade as you improve your baking game. One of the most important tools? Your whisk.
It might seem like a specialized tool, but whisking with a less than perfect whisk is exhausting. I’m talking hand cramps, I’m talking ruined eggs, I’m talking all the things you don’t want in your baked goods.
If you’re in the market for the perfect whisk, we’ve found the 10 best ones for you to perfect your baked goods. Let’s get mixing.

There are quite a few different styles of whisks, but we’re going to start with the most classic shape. This whisk is one of our favorites because it’s not only well-made and sturdy, but with a simple twist it will lie flat and take up less space in your drawer.
This solves the biggest problem with most whisks, which is that they immediately destroy any organizational system you might have.
If you’re going hard on the baked goods this year, you may find that different recipes work best with different sizes of whisks. This set of three gives you an 8 incher, a 10 incher, and a 12 incher, for all your needs.
They’re stainless steel, which is absolutely going to last, and you can even throw them in the dishwasher when you’re done with them.
Maybe you want the size options, but you’re not a fan of the slick stainless steel handle. These whisks give another option for the baking aficionado. They’ve got contoured rubber handles with a bit of texture so you can really get in there and beat your ingredients.
That doesn’t mean it skimps on materials when it comes to the whisk itself though: that’s still a beautiful stainless steel.
This whisk is of the Danish style, which is great for breaking down tough ingredients that just aren’t mixing with a traditional whisk.
I particularly like this one because it has a wood handle, which I find more comfortable than the usual plastic or metal. This whisk will never let you down (or give you up).
If you’re trying to stock up your whole kitchen, you may want to look at this package that not only contains three lovely whisks, but also a spatula, tons, and a basting brush. It’s always nice to have tools that match each other and are high quality.
This set is great for someone who wants a pop of color in the kitchen and knows they’re going to be using every tool at hand.
Did you know that whisks come in different shapes for different uses? I sure didn’t, but I discovered that this cool flat whisk is especially for gravies and sauces. This particular one is angled so that you can get into every nook and cranny of your pan and make sure that any sauces you create are smooth and perfectly blended.
Whisks: they’re for more than eggs.
When this listing says that the whisks are mini, it really means it. Coming in at 5 inches and 7 inches, these whisks are great for smaller ingredients, like spices, hot chocolate, or dressings.
This will definitely take you to the next level, because you’re about to give every ingredient and every mix the level of attention it really deserves.
Whisks are useful for hand beating ingredients, but I personally want all the help I can get when it comes to whisking. This set of two gives you the classic whisk, but it also has a semi-automatic whisk to add some extra oomph.
The semi-automatic just requires a little push from you and it goes into action. It’s great for eggs, sauces, and shakes.
Ball whisks are definitely a different design from the standard balloon whisk. They’re great for getting into corners or spreading out across flat surfaces, and they’re super easy to clean. That’s why they’re great for getting at ingredients in a small space, like a measuring cup.
Plus they’re perfect for scrambled eggs. Get this one to try it out for yourself.
Our final whisk is one of my favorite shapes, because it’s ideal if you need to whisk a cocktail. Because of its shape, all you have to do is move the whisk up and down and it gets mixing.
This whisk is a fine example of the coil style, and a great addition to any kitchen.
