However, occasionally I can't restrain myself. Last month when I attended the King Arthur Flour Baking Class, I was impressed with how the instructor used a dough whisk. Within seconds I knew I needed this to become a better baker, so I purchased one directly from King Arthur Flour.
I love this little tool. The dough whisk allows me to mix doughs without fluffing flour all over my counter and floor, and it's easy to clean. This whisk works much better than my old wooden spoon, which becomes encased with plaster-like dough. I highly recommend this tool for home bakers.
As an added bonus, this kitchen tool could be used to threaten young children. "Don't make me get out my dough whisk. I whup your behind!" Just kidding. I might threaten young children, but I'd never beat them.
