This small device is more useful than people would initially think. As number 6 in the best automatic pot stirrer buying guide, the robostir automatic pot stirrer is sturdier than it looks. It offers the ability to withstand higher temperatures which make it a decent stirrer to use while cooking.\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - RoboStir Automatically Stirs Cook Speeds\r\nThe RoboStir Automatically Stirs Cook Speeds pot stirrer is able to stir up to 4 hours straight with its silicone feet before its batteries die. It\u2019s able to withstand a high temperature of 572 \u00b0F, is water resistant, and despite it\u2019s small size, can be used for thicker recipes such as oatmeal.\r\n\r\nPerformance\r\nThe robostir automatically stirs as the user cooks up to a temperature threshold of 572 \u00b0F. Like the Uutensil Saucepan Stirrer, this stirrer requires 4 aa batteries and can\u2019t be charged. However, in comparison to the Uutensil Saucepan Stirrer, it has less complaints in regards to stirring power and the size of portions it can be used for, and no one star reviews on Amazon at the time of this review. It may not be as powerful or as adjustable as the saki automatic pan stirrer, but it\u2019s still impressive for a handheld stirrer.\r\nDesign\r\nEven though it may look like the skeleton of something that belongs in the toys\/ games section of Amazon, there\u2019s more to it than meets the eye. Despite its deceptively flimsy appearance, it\u2019s actually pretty sturdy, as one customer review included a video that demonstrated that it can stir thicker recipes such as oatmeal as it cooks without completely stopping the stirrer\u2019s stainless steel legs from moving. The silicone pads at the end of those legs are always a nice touch to have too.\r\nValue\r\nThis is better suited for smaller portions of food, and unless the user plans to only use a stirrer for those smaller portions and thinner meals, it\u2019s for the best to purchase a more powerful stirrer. While they usually cost about $20 more, stirrers such as the StirMATE Smart Pot Stirrer can be used for both smaller and bigger portioned recipes. That is partially why those stirrers are more expensive than the RoboStir.\r\nRoboStir Automatically Stirs Cook Speeds Wrap Up\r\nSome top reviews of this verified purchase from the United States have recommended to try this and to please make sure you have a compatible pot or pan before buying it. A new customer would be skeptical at first due to the stirrer\u2019s structure, but they would be surprised by the results.
