SkyMall Monday: Stirr Cordless Kitchen Tool

Us Gadling folks travel a ton. Some of you probably spend a great deal of your time on the road, as well. All of that time away from SkyMall Monday headquarters makes us savor each and every home-cooked meal that much more. We love dutifully working in the kitchen to prepare some of our childhood favorites as well as dishes inspired from the far-off places that we have visited. Like you, though, we run into the issue of multitasking in the kitchen. We simply do not have enough hands to make sure that each dish gets the attention that it deserves. We don’t have the money to hire a personal chef or teach our dog butlers how to cook. Thankfully, SkyMall has the solution to our problems. Sadly, it is not a sexy cooking android or a third arm to attach to the front of our torsos. No, it’s simply an ingenious device that allows us to focus more on being lazy doing other tasks and less on tedious kitchen work. When we cook, we use the Stirr Cordless Kitchen Tool (aka RoboStir).

Stirring is boring. It is certainly not one of the glamorous cooking tasks such as butchering or marinating. Stirring is monotonous grunt work best left to your children or small robotic devices. Why risk injury to your wrists and elbows when you can leave your kitchen unattended while something that looks like a head massager pirouettes through your bisque?

Think that we shouldn’t hand over more American jobs to outsourced labor? Believe that the machines will eventually rise up? Well, while you keep your gravy from getting lumpy, we’ll be reading the product description:

Like a kitchen assistant that does the stirring. Now you can cook custards, sauces and soups without constantly stirring. With the innovative Stirr, you can do other kitchen prep while you keep an eye on what’s cooking. It “walks” around the pot, blending flavors and keeping ingredients from sticking or clumping.

Haven’t you always wanted an assistant in the kitchen to replace your cat, Mr. Whiskers von Cuddletons? Besides, if his litter box is any indication, he actually seems to prefer clumping.

Rather than take my word for it, have a look at the RoboStir in action. Marvel at its beauty. Fear its power. Respect its authority.
