After reading the Actifry thread I'd like to share with you this kitchen gadget............simply brilliant! http://www.uutensil.com/product.php5?id=102 It's a battery operated stirrer! Why you might ask? Well, some of you may recall my thread about burning milk products on an induction hob (not halogen, induction.......completely different). Whenever I warm milk, make roux based sauce, custard, rice pud I get a brown film on the base of the pan (mehling's reaction....remember it from uni days!) with the result of brown specks in everything. Only stirring the entire time prevents this which for 30 minutes on a rice pud is tiresome in the extreme, and for poaching meringues for Isles Flotante is impossible! I've tried to find out why this happens on induction hobs only but no luck. Must be to do with the unique way induction works (no direct heat). Anyway, this gadget saves the day. Just pop it in the pan with the milk/sauce/rice pud and switch on! Fantastic! Only thing it's no good for is Isles Flotante so in future I shall poach in water and use the gadget in the milk to make the custard.
