VIDEO: Japanese Pot Stirs Itself!
Throw Away All Your Kitchen Stirring Instruments

One thing that's always been part of a pot-mixing recipe is that you have to manually stir your food using some sort of stirring spoon or even a spatula if you need to wash dishes. It's so demanding and your arms can get so tired; it can really take a toll on the whole effort of making food. But now you don't have to do that anymore!

Japanese Dentist Hideki Watanabe has invented this lovely pot, called Kuru-Kuru Nabe (Pot Round and Round), that saves you the effort of stirring by making the food stir itself as it boils. Relying on basic thermodynamics, this creates a mini whirlpool to cause the actual stirring. As a bonus, the food cooks more evenly and more efficiently, plus the compacting foam prevents any boiling over.

Not for particularly thick foods like chili or refried beans, but it's perfect for soups.
