As number 4 in the best automatic pot stirrer buying guide, the ardente gourmet stirrer is a decent pot stirrer that can stir preserves, soups, sauces, and more. The blades of the stirrer are positioned as close to the bottom of the pot as possible to thoroughly stir its contents without scraping that pot.\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - Ardente Gourmet Stirrer Color Black\r\nThe Ardente Gourmet Stirrer Color Black automatic pot stirrer is capable of continuously stirring ingredients for most of an entire day before it runs out of power. It also has adjustable blades and has a wide and decent range of pots that it can be used for.\r\n\r\nPerformance\r\nIt has 2 stirrer options available, and although it can stir for a maximum of about 24 hours before it runs out of power, it\u2019s only strong enough to stir sauces, lighter soups, and preserves without getting stuck, as it would get stuck if used to stir cheese, which means that it\u2019s not as powerful as the StirMATE Smart Pot Stirrer. However, that also means that it has a much longer battery life than the StirMATE, as the StirMATE has a battery life of about 13 hours.\r\nDesign\r\nDespite the simplicity, there\u2019s more to this than its sleek looks and glossy black color. Like the Uutensil Saucepan Stirrer, it isn\u2019t rechargeable and requires 4 batteries. However, while the Uutensil uses AA batteries, the Ardente requires C batteries. This adjustable pot stirrer can fit pans that are 9-14 inches in diameter and 6-11 inches in height. It also has exceptional heat resistance, as it can withstand stirring ingredients that have been heated to 375 \u00b0F.\r\nValue\r\nThe saki automatic auto stirrer costs slightly less than the Ardente stirrer, but is more powerful and is rechargeable. Porridges, custard, cheese, and chunky stew barely slow it down compared to the effect those meals would have on the Ardente stirrer. Also, since the Ardente uses batteries, it wouldn\u2019t be cost efficient if the user wants to constantly use it. Unless the user doesn\u2019t need to use it very often, and only needs it for lighter recipes, stirrers like the saki stirrer are better alternatives.\r\nArdente Gourmet Stirrer Color Black Wrap Up\r\nSome customer reviews have noted that while this stirrer isn\u2019t the most powerful and specializes in slow stirring, it manages to stir as close to the bottom of the pot as possible when stirring the user\u2019s lighter recipes. They have also mentioned that it\u2019s best to hand wash the stirrer.
