Can a company be built on ten stainless steel wires?

We sometimes feel as if ours has, because the product that really made us the standard for the industry is our professional-calibre French whip, as indispensable to the serious cook as it's been to us.

Best's wire whips are designed and made by our own craftsmen in Portland, Oregon. Now available in many different styles and sizes, they have been providing pleasure in the art of cookery to home cooks for decades.

Crafted with an eye to design, balance, performance and hygiene, the Best whip is the result of our own exacting standards, as well as those of the professional with whom we've designed them—the home chef, the restaurateur, the kitchen manager… and the retailer, who understands the customers' needs so thoroughly.
