The unit looks like the picture. The arms have the ability to fold up next to the unit for compact storage. I have no idea what they mean by "spring loaded arms", the three different sized paddles that come with it have bendable tips that allow for a fitting into pans that might not be the exact size of the paddles. They aren't rubber and you don't really want them scraping along the sides of your pan, so you often find yourself going with the smaller paddle, which works just as well to keep things moving. The paddles connect to the unit via the metal rod that has a clip on one end. The rod fits thru the motor part, and at no time is it actually connected; this allows the varying depth. The unit either turns constantly, or intermittently, depending on where you set the switch.
Biggest problem I have with the unit (next to the 4 dead batteries that it came with) is the speed at which it turns; the constant turn setting seems a little slow. I found that at the speed it turns, I needed to keep my heat at a slow medium or I got build-up and scorching. Not a problem that you can't overcome, but lower temps mean longer cooking times. I really would like to see a version 2 of the unit that allowed for a variable turn speed.
It fit the pan and that is THE ONLY thing that was a positive. As soon as those worthless paddles hit that hot oil and flour, they began to dissolve! Surely these idiots knew that they would be used for stirriring more than luke-warm water.
The person that gave this 5-Stars must have been the inventor!
However, this product, used at its maximum range (width-wise) I found to be very dangerous, because its arms are spring loaded, meaning you pull them out for a bigger pan to clip them to the edge of the pan. It says right on top of the device that you shouldn't put it in a hot pot, and the reason is that once you have an arm on one side and you're trying to put the arms on the other sides (thus stretching out the springs) an arm can slip off and the whole device snaps back at you like a rubber band. This can send sauce and the device itself flying all over the place. Needless to say, this is a substantial burn danger if you try to put it in a hot pot. Putting it in a cold pot doesn't solve the problem, because the same thing can happen when you try to remove the device from a hot pot. Also, if there's grease on the sides of the pot, I fear that the normal vibration of the device could cause it to snap off.
So, it's useful, but I would suggest that if you buy it, you only use it on smaller pots where you don't have to stretch out the arms.
I love the fact that I can make bernaise sauce or other sauces and not have to stand there and constantly stir it.
Buy the Chef's stirrer instead (worth the extra money)

I had this stirrer and it drove me crazy as you can only use on small pot or saucepan. If this would work for 10-12" pots it would be great.Published 13 months ago by Algansk
