We’re Local. We’re Unique. We’re Personal.

WELCOME TO WHISK! LOCATED IN CARY, NC AND DREAMED UP BY DAN AND DIANA SAKLAD, WHISK IS the triangle’s favorite store for cooks, foodies, chefs and gadget lovers.

First, an introduction.

We are Dan and Diana Saklad, founders of Whisk. We created Whisk because we had a vision of building a local cooking and kitchen store where our customers could find everything for the cook, all in one place. At Whisk, you’ll find:

  • Quality Kitchenware – 15,000 unique items

  • Cooking Classes – 40+ public classes and private cooking events each month

  • Culinary Inspiration – An idea driven community of chefs and home cooks eager to create, share and help!

We want Whisk to be that place that you keep coming back to because you like shopping here. The kind of place where the staff is enthusiastic and knowledgeable, there is always something new to pique your interest, and the services are unique and value-added. The kind of place you walk into and say,"Whisk is the best kitchen store in North Carolina."

Thanks to our great community, our dream has come true!  It started with being awarded The Best Kitchen Supply Store in The Triangle, and progressed to Gourmet Retailer's Kitchenware Retailer of the Year award as well as the International Housewares Association's Global Innovator Award.  We are proud of the national and international press we have received, and humbled by the fact that it all started with a dream to start a community-focused small business in North Carolina. 


We love to cook, experiment, and play in the kitchen. Whether it is a party, a gathering with family and friends, or a simple family dinner, we have always found the kitchen to be the center of action in the house. Spending as much time as we do in the kitchen, we’ve come to understand how great kitchen gadgets, gourmet ingredients, and cookware can really transform your entire cooking experience. We created Whisk as a place for you to feel that same enjoyment by introducing you to some great kitchenware products, and enhancing your culinary knowledge and proficiency through our cooking classes and demonstrations.
