Artiste Mixer Batter (Cookie) Whisks - set of two
Batter whisks have only two wires rather than 5 that come on the French whips included with the Artiste Mixers.
These are wonderful for thick batters and a light dough. I like them especially for making pastry when I jog the machine on the spring loaded switch to lightly mix the pastry dough and cut in the shortening and the liquid. These are the best choice to make cakes since they have less wire they do not develop the gluten in the flour of your cakes as the french whips might do. Always mix cakes on the lowest speed on your Artiste Mixer.
Sold as a set of 2.
Some things we like to do with our Cookie/Batter Whips are:
Tip: We would recommend using the wire whips and batter or cookie whisks for pourable batters, creaming butter and sugar for cookies but when adding flour or heavier ingredients like oats, switch them for the dough hook. We cannot get a warranty on bent batter or french whips so jog your machine a few times before turning it on to cream the butter and sugar. The batter whisks (DB2's) are a bit stronger than the wire whips for "heavier pourable" batters. For cookie dough, the best choice is the new Cookie Paddles. See our cookie dough demo here. For the best whipping action in lighter foods like whipping cream or fluffy frosting, the original DB3 wire whip is certainly the best tool.
