Judge electric whisk summary

Don’t be put off by the Judge’s lightness (it only weighs 800g) – this is a well-built whisk. The impressive stainless steel body and good-quality accessories make it look far more expensive than it is.

The 300W motor is punchy and efficient, but this also means that even at low speeds, ingredients are thrown around, which can get messy. The whisk is a tad heavy towards the front, which tips it forward slightly. That aside, with the reasonable price and its efficiency, there’s a lot to like about the Judge electric whisk.

What were our first impressions of the Judge electric whisk?

The Judge whisk is a solid, unfussy whisk. Despite its weight, it’s incredibly well-built, with a black plastic handle, a lightweight stainless steel body and impressive array of good-quality accessories. There were very few fingermarks to be found on the steel at the end of testing, and those that there were wiped away easily. 

The 300W motor was a little noisy, but powerful. With six speeds plus an excellent turbo setting, it stood up well in every test we put it through, including making short work of kneading bread dough and whipping up glossy meringues. As the machine starts out fast, even on the lowest settings, it did tend to throw ingredients about a bit, especially flour.

How is the Judge electric whisk to use?

Each setting is selected easily with a thumb switch on the handle, which gives a discernible and reassuring click into place. The eject button needs a bit more persuading, requiring quite a push to get the beaters out.  

The handle is comfortable to hold. If we had to find a fault, the balance was a little unsteady thanks to its slightly heavier front end, which made the whisk tip slightly forward. There was little vibration until the whisk reached the top speed.

Our verdict

Given its reasonable price and efficiency, there’s a lot to like about the Judge whisk.
