stirio-two-1

As we’ve just come through the holiday season, I’m betting a fair majority of you spent a great deal of time in the kitchen. I know I did! One of the things that a lot of folks hate is the need to stir something while trying to get other things done. That can be avoided if you have an assistant or a prep cook or something, but for most of us that just isn’t going to happen. So there you are, standing at the stove, one hand stirring a pot while you try to get other ingredients together with the other hand. It doesn’t work so well.

Stirio actually debuted a year or so ago to great acclaim, and now they’ve gone and improved it. It’s still the same deal, where you clamp Stirio to your pot or whatever and it stirs the food so you don’t have to. But the new and improved version has a quieter motor, is safe to use in non-stick pans, is easier to use (and clean), and has a one size fits all stirring blade. It’s even rechargeable, so you don’t have to have it plugged into an outlet to work.

The blade actually adjusts to whatever pot you’re using, so you don’t have to worry about it not fitting or getting hung up. Stirio will work in any pot or bowl that measures 15-25 cm wide, and 7.5-18 cm tall (about 6-10 inches by 3-7 inches). The blade is made of glass-filled nylon, and can be used in temperatures up to 260?C (500 F). You’re not supposed to use it in empty pans, however, and using it in an oven is probably a poor choice.

I have to admit I’m not still convinced. I mean, sure, there have been several times I’ve wished I had something like Stirio so I wasn’t chained to my stove, but I have some issues. It doesn’t appear you can adjust the speed for one, and also some things simply don’t need constant stirring. It would be nice if it could be set for intervals. The concept is a good one, I just think it needs a little tweaking. Those of you who think Stirio is perfect just as it is can take one home for 49.95 (about $61.00 US).
