In case you’ve missed it, baking bread is the hottest trend at the moment. Whether you’re advanced enough to nurse a sourdough starter or are tackling a more approachable quick bread (i.e. banana bread), you can’t deny that bread in all its glorious forms is having a moment. For any recipe, you're going to need some basic tools. And while you might already have a standard whisk at home, we can attest that a Danish dough whisk is the secret to perfectly mixed dough of any kind.

When I tried baking bread in the air fryer, I found the Danish dough whisk was a solution to the stand mixer my kitchen lacked. A Danish dough whisk consists of three differently-sized coils stacked around each other designed to cut through dough without over-mixing or getting stuck, making it an effective option for various types of baking projects. (Try using a balloon whisk to mix any kind of bread dough, and you're in for a mess.) The round edges easily scrape the sides of the bowl ensuring all the flour is fully incorporated — and important step when baking.

As I mixed the dough for my air fryer bread, I found the soft handle of the OXO whisk was comfortable to hold, although it doesn't completely alleiviate arm or hand fatigue that comes with mixing for minutes at a time. However, it did fully incorporate my wet and dry ingredients quickly and my air fryer bread was a success.

We could see a dough whisk coming in handy for other types of batter and baking projects like muffins, brownies or no-knead bread. Some bakers also claim it's ideal for mixing batters for crepes and pancakes that shouldn't be overmixed. If anything, we think this whisk will at least help you hold off on a major stand mixer splurge for a little bit longer.
