I look at the Electrolux Easy Stir and I immediately think to myself "risotto." It's one of those recipes that requires a truly demanding amount of attention through constant blending. It would be so helpful to have that action mechanized.

 came up with a clever culinary concept along these lines with a lovely plant-like pot mixer. It sits in the base of the saucepan, with its squiggly stem emerging and accessible, it spins to continuously agitate the heating ingredients and does so in a cutting-edge way.

The gadget's pivoting fins -- or leaves -- keep revolving under the influence of convection currents. Magnetized in this way, the Electrolux Easystir does not require any charging to work, just the right kind of stovetop.
