About Whisk: Cary, NC’s Premier Kitchen Store

Welcome to Whisk! Located in Cary, NC and dreamed up by Dan and Diana Saklad, Whisk is a unique kitchen supply store offering specialized services and cooking classes.

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 you (our customers) could find everything for the cook, all in one place:

  • Interact with a staff who has a deep knowledge and enthusiasm for cooking
  • Find innovative, reliable cookware and kitchen supplies from skilled artisans and exceptional brands
  • Gain valuable knowledge through cooking classes
  • Be inspired to cook! 

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."

We Share Your Love of Cooking!

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.
 
LIFE HAPPENS IN THE KITCHEN. ENJOY IT!
 
– Dan and Diana Saklad

Whisk Kitchen | A Community of Cooks

“I think cooking and food is something that unites everybody. Being able to share that with our friends and our neighbors people that we meet here in the store is something that really, really makes us feel like we are sharing our passion. Diane and I started this business with the idea of building a community of cooks but the true test of that is does the community build on itself and take a new life of its own? And that's really what's happened We've got the community of chefs and that's profession based and they cook in a restaurant Then we've got assistants who help out in the kitchen passionate cooks, people who just love to be around the kitchen. Our customers are a big community. We try to bring people into the store we try to educate them, entertain them, and inspire them. It's the sharing of the food and the technique and the skills that makes it so delightful. Whether it is sharing through a class, a party. Sharing tools that can make cooking more fun, easier. There is no other cooking store that has the inventory that they have. I get the expert advice as well as the product I'm looking for. This store is built with over 15,000 different, unique items. and all of those tools have a purpose. We've got the tool that will provide value, and also help them accomplish whatever they want to accomplish. When students come in for our classes they can expect great training, technique, fun, and a party! But they can pick and choose what they want We have some students that come in so they can up their game We've got other students who might come in for a Friday or Saturday night They're getting a show, they are getting technical training but they sit back, relax, sip on a glass of wine and it's their choice how much they participate. I love that look on a persons face when they go "oh my gosh, I can't wait to go home and try this out" Literally, cooking changes the chemical compounds in food Figuratively, cooking changes the way you eat, it changes the way people interact together, and it changes your experience. It's in that process, where you're sitting together, you're cooking you're learning about what's being cooked, but really what's happening is you're starting to talk about life stories. It's through those life stories that you end up getting enriched yourself because it just broadens your experience Everyone has to sustain themselves and if we can do it together in the kitchen it's something that we really want to nurture in our community. We are really, truly a community of cooks and people love it.”
