StirChef Unique Saucepan Stirrer
Save time and extend the life of your cookware. The StirChef Saucepan Stirrer is specially designed to be hands-free so you can work on other kitchen tasks while your soups and sauces are on the stovetop. The adjustable arms unfold to fit any saucepan from 6 to 8-1/2″ in diameter (typically 1-1/2 to 4-1/2 quarts), and the 3 interchangeable heat-resistant paddles offer smooth and efficient stirring, including an intermittent setting and splashguard.
Use it for any dish that calls for continuous or occasional stirring, including puddings, pasta, chili, rice and gravy. When not in use, it folds easily to be stored in your utensil drawer. Includes removable stainless steel shaft and recipes for sauces, soups, risottos and more. Dishwasher safe. Imported.

All in all, not a bad product, and relatively handy if you have other things to do than constantly stir something. If Amazon allowed for half stars, I would have given it only 3.5 instead of 4, but it is better than a 3 star rating.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.

I DO NOT LIKE THIS AT ALL. It wasn’t what I expected. It fell into the pot often and required way to much attention from me. I ended up taking it off and hand stirring which defeated the purpose of the purchase. I hope it works better for you if you decide to purchase.
