Grandpa Witmer Mixes Up The Peanut Butter

Grandpa Witmer's Model 100 Old Fashioned Natural Peanut Butter Mixer 3214

Good peanut butter is essential. But as anyone knows who goes for the good stuff, it tends to separate upon standing. One could use a butter knife to mix up the peanut butter, having it emerge from the jar like some kind of peanut butter club, or one could use Grandpa Witmer’s Old Fashioned Natural Peanut Butter Mixer. Then again, if you use a butter knife as a stirring implement, half of the jar of peanut butter is likely to stick to it, and then you would have to eat it–which really isn’t a bad thing after all.

Product Description
Oil separation is a natural occurrence for non-hydrogenated peanut butter. This innovative new device will easily stir the peanut butter in the original conatiner without splashing the oil. It conveniently cleans the mixing rod upon removal from the jar

One Turntable And A Mic(rowave Mixer)

Microwave Mixer

The inside of a microwave isn’t something to play around with. Unless of course, what you’re cooking needs mixing. While it isn’t advised to pop your hand in there while the machine is on (a not-so-easy trick), there is a clever gadget that works in tandem with the rotating turntable your microwave probably already has.

The Microwave Mixer is a handy utensil that sticks to the roof of a microwave staying in place via a suction cup. As the turntable rotates, the gadget stirs what is in the bowl. Much better than walking around with one radiation-enhanced superhero mutant hand anyways.

Twist Whisk promises more than hot air

Twist Whisk 10

Air turbulence isn’t always a bad thing. While the aerodynamically sensitive industries surrounding planes, trains and automobiles may disagree about that, cooking is all about moving air. One might think that usually cooking concerns the movement of hot air in particular, but not in this case.

The Cuisipro Twist Whisk may look like loopy red licorice vines sticking out of a handle, but these silicone-wrapped wires aren’t going to be very tasty (or easy to eat). Designed to create more movement of air while mixing, the textured nature of the of the wires carry with them the promise of increased efficiency, resulting in reduced whipping and mixing time. Forget the mysterious black box material, if Red Vines licorice makes things go faster, maybe they start making airplanes out of candy.
