How many times have you burned something on the stove because, for some reason or another, you forgot to stir whatever you were cooking?
Here is a product that claims to do the stirring while you are doing something else.
It is called the RoboStir, and as the name would suggest, it is a robotic stirring device.
It is a new spin on cooking, but would the RoboStir get dizzy in our As Seen On TV test?
We all love homemade soups and sauces, but who wants to stand in front of a stove for hours stirring?
If you step away, you could end up burning your food.
Often times, the food gets burned because we do not stir what is in the pot, and we are off doing something else, so the RoboStir claims to be like the third hand you need in the kitchen so you can keep stirring the stuff that needs to be stirred while you could do other things.
RoboStir has three silicone feet that can supposedly withstand hear up to 572 degrees. The top has a button that you push when you want to activate it, and it has three speeds.
I decided to make some nacho cheese sauce for the kids to see how it works. The RoboStir goes in the sauce, and while it is stirring, I got started on some beans. After about eight minutes, I turned it off, and the sauce looked very creamy with nothing burned.
It's dishwasher safe, and you can just rinse it off and move it on to your next project. I decided to try it out on pork and beans with a little bit of barbeque sauce. Could RoboStir handle the rigors of pork and beans?
The barbecue looked good, and nothing in the pot was burned.
The RoboStir is 100% water proof, so it even works under water. It has its own scuba suit, and seemed to do well, and while it does, it follows the contour of the pot.
As in the infomercial, the RoboStir does what it says it will do. For most people, they may not want to wait, and they will go ahead and just use a spoon or a whisk to get things mixed up. However, if your head is constantly spinning, if you’re preparing a big meal, RoboStir will probably come in handy, and it gets a thumbs up.
The RoboStir runs on four AA batteries, not included.
I picked mine up at Walgreen’s for $10, but they are in a lot of stores and all over the Internet.
