Danish Dough Whisk

Does anyone use a Danish dough whisk? I would love to hear people's experience with them. They look weird and interesting.

And here's a picture of what they look like.

I have one of those, and I love it! Great for mixing the first several cups of flour into a bread dough. I've had it for at least 25 years, and it still hadn't come apart, KOW.

Why do they call it a Danish whisk when it's made in Poland?

I have the 14-1/2" version, which I picked up at King Arthur Flour when we were going through Norwich, VT. It's made in Poland, probably by the same company. I'm not much of a baker, but it works well for slack doughs like no-knead doughs. My pizza dough is stiffer, and I knead it by hand after mixing with a wooden spoon.

Does KAF call their whisk a Danish one now? That's where I got mine from way back, and it was just called a dough whisk then.

Love my dough hooks. I have two, one large; the other one about half the size. Less stress on my hands.

I have one and use it for mixing no knead bread ingredients.

I have two as well. Don't use the large one quite as much as the smaller but I love them.
