Sure, a heavy gerbil on a wheel rigged up to an elaborate contraption could probably stir our food for us. Unfortunately, we’re not in the possession of said contraption (nor a big enough gerbil to mix thick porridge), so we’ll have to settle for Stirio. This automatic stirrer features two clamps at the ends of its adjustable arms, stirring pretty much anything within a pot of virtually any size. No need to be in proximity of a plug since it runs on rechargeable batteries, plus it comes apart into several dishwasher-safe pieces, except of course for the motor unit, for an easy – and lazy – clean.
