Well, I finally bit the bullet and ordered the Danish dough whisk
from Eric at Breadtopia.com.
( I can be such a cheapskate sometimes) I have never used anything like this before, and was really skeptical if it was all that he said it was. It really surprised me as to how quickly and thoroughly it mixed the NYT bread dough, and cleanup was a snap.
Also, after doing a Google search to get the best price, I found that Breadtopia had the best price, and his shipping was only $1.85 by USPS. If you make a lot of NYT like I do, you'll thank yourself for buying one.
