Judging by the reviews it sounds as though you were lucky (and the firm is now out of business).

I have several like this
ASDA Wooden Spatula | Kitchen Utensils & Gadgets | ASDA direct
Cheap cheerful and effective. stirs the sauce etc., and prevents sticking and burning to the bottom and sides of the saucepan. "Does what it says on the tin" and cheap enough to throw away when worn out or damaged.

Sauces that have to be constantly stirred have to be constantly watched so a go-away-and-leave-it gadget seems a bit pointless.

Nothing gadget-y that has a simple, effective alternative gets into my kitchen. (Sorry, that sounded very po-faced!)

That link didn't work. Here it is: ASDA Wooden Spoon | Kitchen Utensils & Gadgets | ASDA direct

I prefer something with a flat end, like this:



I imagine one of those automagic stirrers could be handy, if you are doing a lot of different things in the kitchen at once. Still not my cup of tea.
