In our merry travels around the globe, we come across an awful lot of unnecessary bumpf. The kind of barmy gadget ideas that should never have made it out of the pub where they were first thought up, let alone allowed see the light of day. But occasionally we find something of this ilk that is so absolutely bonkers that you have to smile. And then buy one. And find it positively delightful to play with.
It’s for this reason that we bring to your discerning eye theSelf Stirring Mug. It’s brilliant! No, we don’t know why, but watching it swizz your morning brew into a hot swirling vortex at the touch of a button is guaranteed to cheer you up. Better yet, make an instant soup and watch in glee as your dehydrated croutons run laps around the rim. Ah, it’s the little things in life...
So how does it work? Well, a tinybattery-powered impellerat the bottom of the cup spins rapidly to swirl the liquid around the bottom of the cup.Press the button on the handleand watch as your hot beverage slowly starts to spin, until it’s a veritable steaming whirlpool.
Pitched as theultimate gift for the lazy tea-drinkerin your life, what tickles us is that you’ll still need a teaspoon for adding coffee, or removing the teabag. Which you’ll still need to wash up. So it’s no more time-saving than using a regular mug and giving it a stir. And that’s why we love it!
