Yes, it looks great for making soups.

They had a similar product available, and all I could think of was how long the batteries would last, what would happen if the liquid boiled off, and whether or not it would melt.

Yeah, OK, send me two of them. Yeah, right!

No, Z! This pot has no plastic parts and does not need batteries. It's quite clever.

If I'm cooking a long cooking time dish (jambalaya, for instance), I like to think ahead to whether I'm going to be available for stirring.

If not, I'll put it in the fridge to continue later.

I can't imaging turning my pot of food over to some gimmick that has the potential of making a really big mess.

Not a gimmick or gadget, you should watch the video on this one. Also, it's really for making soups and such, not thick sauces.

Sorry, Fi, I missed your reply. Do you think it would work? If so, what would you use it for?

In chemistry class we had some sort of platform that we put the beakers on to heat and dropped a couple of plastic coated magnets in. The platform would rotate the magnets and keep your solution moving. It was a long time ago, so I don't remember the details.

Well, if they can keep my split pea soup from scorching, I might just be a customer. Is there a speed control?

I would only use it for broth type cooking. It's still cool. Check the link Hoot supplied for what the pot was created for. Very nice layman's explanation.

As for the magnets (Magnetic stirrer - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) I'm not sure they would be able to stir split pea soup, either.
