As you know, I have a weakness for the infomercial.
Pajama Jeans, anyone?
So, when I saw the infomercial for the Robo Stir, I couldn’t help myself:
The Robo Stirâ„¢ is the new way to make kitchen work quick and easy. It’s the tool that let’s you stir your food without actually having to stir.
Stirring food is such a chore! Obviously I need a Robo Stir.
The commercial for Robo Stir really makes it look like it is something that rotates in a whisk-like motion, so I was a little surprised when I got my Robo Stir in the mail and found that it really just vibrates.
Vibrates in a circular motion.
I was sure that it would be MUCH better in a pan and solve all my stirring needs, so I gathered a little help (Jana & Andrea) and we prepared to make white sauce to test out the Robo Stir.
We melted the butter.
We added the flour.
We set the Robo Stir in the pan to relieve us from the strenuous stirring duties.
I grabbed my camera and took the picture above and then grabbed my video camera to accurately demonstrate the rotational component:
Yes, if you watched the video to the very last moments of the Robo Stir’s first minute of use, you saw that the stirring mechanism fell off.
Despite the missing ability to stir, the Robo Stir continued to jiggle and jump in one portion of my pan for a few more moments until…
…all three of the Robo Stir feet fell off as well.
So, if you are satisfied with a product that will give you 45 seconds of marginally helpful use, then Robo Stir is for you.
As for us, we have found a better use for the Robo Stir.
It delivers a mildly effective back massage.
