Battery Powered Automatic Ardente Gourmet Stirrer - New Kitchen Must-have!

How many of you make your own homemade sauces? I know I do! Every year I spend countless days in the kitchen cooking up spaghetti sauce, homemade tomato soup, pizza sauce, etc. and then I can them for use during the winter. If you have ever made your own homemade sauces, you know that it is a time consuming process but it is worth every minute of your time. Homemade is always better than store bought!

The Battery Powered Automatic Ardente Gourmet Stirrer was developed by an Italian boy who wanted to help his mom from burning the spaghetti sauce during huge family gatherings. The battery powered automatic Ardente Gourmet Stirrer uses either a continuous motion or intermittent cycles to stir everything from delicate sauces, soups, stews and even mashed potatoes. It will work with any 9" to 14" two handled pot!

With the Gourmet Stirrer you can be hands-free and won't need to continuously stand over a hot stove for hours on end! It guarantees continuous hands-free stirring that's quick and easy. It comes in white or black, so one will definitely work with the color scheme of your kitchen. It features a stainless steel shaft and 2 non-stick blades (one large and one medium) which are dishwasher-safe making clean-up a snap! Once you are done using it, dis-assemble it and store it flat in a drawer. It doesn't take up much space at all. You will need 4 C cell batteries (not included) and it comes with a 1 year manufacturer's warranty.

We received an Ardente Gourmet Stirrer to review for all of you and let me tell you, now that I own one, I don't know how I ever lived without one! You might be thinking that since it runs on batteries it wouldn't be powerful but that is totally not true. This stirrer is MIGHTY and can handle all kinds of different soups, sauces, mashed potatoes and more!!!

Since receiving it, I have used it to make a batch of homemade spaghetti sauce and it was super nice that I didn't have to stand over my hot stove as it simmered. It did a great job at stirring the sauce and it didn't scorch or burn at all. I've also used it when cooking down some chicken stock to make & can some homemade chicken gravy, it did equally as well! On New Year's Day we used it to stir a large batch of mashed potatoes and they came out lump-free and creamy! Another thing I have been using it for is when I make homemade "cooked-style" puddings. I made two batches of pudding over the holidays and was very pleased with the results!

Once Spring and Summer get here and I start my home canning again I will be using it a whole lot more! I can see me using it to make my jams, jellies, preserves, relishes, sauces and all kinds of other things. If you are a home canner or love to prepare foods from scratch, the Ardente Gourmet Stirrer is a must-have item! We love it!
