An Automatic Stirrer

By David Ponce

You know those recipes that tell you “Stir often”? Well, they really put a cramp on your ability to multitask. I, for one, would enjoy being able to watch the game, while simultaneously making myself a delicious risotto, or some custard.

So, I’m really considering spending $20 for this, the “Stir-Chef Hands-Free Stirrer”. Simply place on your pan, turn on, and forget.

Come inside for the full specs.
