The whisk is a glorious invention with an irritating, Carpal Tunnel inducing mechanism. For about ten seconds, there's just something so satisfying about using a bulb-shaped wand of intertwined silver wires to stir a sauce to thickening: it even makes the same pleasing onomatopoeic sound of its name. But then there's ten minutes of tedium on the tail end.
Technology can, of course, do better. The Stirr is a hand free whisk that you just plop into the pot, stirring your sauces or gravies or soup automatically, like some sort of Hogwart's culinary instrument. It runs on four AA batteries. $23.
