Why a Bread Whisk Makes Better Bread

Posted by

Do you and your family love making bread? A helpful tool is a bread whisk! It's great for mixing the wet and dry ingredients in a wet-dough. Wikipedia lists a whisk as "A whisk is a cooking utensil which can be used to blend ingredients smooth and to incorporate air into a mixture, in a process known as whisking or whipping." 

It basically speeds up the process significantly and aerates, or adds the necessary air to the loaf, making it lighter and/or creates more volume, removes lumps from the flour and adds air making the resulting flour and typically the bread, lighter in texture and consistency.

And It definitely cuts down on time and the use of your hands for kneading any kind of dough. Whisks add in air when you're blending ingredients such as eggs and whipping cream.

Traditional spoons or regular whisks can cause the heavy bread batter to stick. Mixing bread batter can get tiresome and cause sore hands and wrists. With the Sassafras Bread Whisk, this cuts down on the discomforts and makes baking bread much more enjoyable
