This is an update to my first review (not here for whatever reason) and I'm even more unhappy with this product. I was disappointed in finding out this is made in Taiwan when I thought it was from Poland. And then I used it today. It worked great!! For my bread recipe. I used it again for a stiff cake batter and the wire whisk part came clean out of the wood handle!! I would not purchase another one obviously and would not recommend it either.
