Danish Dough Whisk Review

I mentioned a week or so ago that Isaak had his first Auntie Anne's pretzel, and he didn't know if it was bread or chicken. I said to Isaak, "We'll have to make pretzels similar to this at home." Isaak said, "You know how to make them?" I said, "Yep." He said, "I'd love that Mom."

I got a Danish Dough Whisk to review. I thought it was the perfect kitchen utensil to make homemade pretzels. 


Let me tell you the Danish Dough Whisk worked great!

Before I get into how to make pretzels here's a little information about the Danish Dough Whisk:
  • It's rated 4 stars on Amazon. The cost is $17.90, but it's on sale for $9.95. There is a 100% satisfaction guarantee on all of Kitchen Simple products.

  • It's a 13.5 Dutch Style Stainless Steel whisk with a wooden handle.

  • I like that it feels sturdy! When I used it I thought it wouldn't break things up, and would make a mess. Boy was I wrong. It's great for pizza dough, pastry, bread dough, homemade pasta, pretzel dough, and cookie dough.

  • You can use it for baking and cooking. Many professionals use the Danish Dough Whisk as their secret weapon. 

  • It's easy to clean! Most whisks are a pain in the butt to clean. I had no trouble at all cleaning this. 


Pretzel Time:

I haven't made pretzels in years. The kids loved making them, and eating them! I imagine they are healthier for you than store bought ones. I could have attempted gluten free all purpose flour, but stuck with the gluten this time. I didn't want to risk messing up the first attempt with the kids. 

All the mixing was done with the Danish Dough Whisk. You can see there is little mess. I used to use a wooden spoon for this, but the dough would stick to the spoon. This whisk was super easy to clean up! Isaak did some of the mixing.



Pretzel Recipe:



I let the dough rise for about 30 minutes. I put it in the lowest setting of our oven with a wet towel over the bowl. 

Take the dough out of the oven, and turn the heat up to 425 degrees. Knead the dough with 1/2 cup all purpose flour. 

I cut the dough into 12 pieces, and they each rolled the dough in their hands. Both boys loved making the pretzel shapes. They said they were making snakes. This was their favorite part! 


We made ribbon and pretzel shapes. It doesn't matter if they are a certain shape. They all taste the same.


Mica brushed on the egg mixture: 1 egg + 1 Tablespoon of water.


Isaak sprinkled on the  sesame seeds, and I sprinkled on the course salt. 


Cook until they are slight brown. About 20 minutes. They are so good!


You could opt to make a sweet pretzel. Just paint with the egg + water mixture, and sprinkle cinnamon and sugar on them. The ones I made do taste good dipped in a cheese dip. I didn't do all that, but it's good!

Have you ever made homemade pretzels before?
