For some people, making soup is the height of tedium. Now, a Japanese dentist has created the easy chair of kitchen equipment: a specially sculpted pot that stirs itself.

Hideki Watanabe came up with the Kuru-Kuru Nabe (Round and Round Pot) while experimenting with dental plaster at his office.

The water in the pot rises as it gets hotter, and spirals etched into the sides redirect it into a circle. It’s also efficient, hitting the boiling point faster than conventional cookware; it’s less likely to boil over; and it keeps pasta from sticking to the bottom.

Watanabe is hunting for investors now, possibly looking to leave dental work behind. The only foreseeable problem is with the demographic: People especially interested in a pot they don’t have to stir might not be the most helpful when it comes to getting up and donating to a young project.

I’d buy one.  I hate having to stand there and keep stirring stuff when I’m cooking.

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you’re a mile away and you have their shoes.

It’s a nice-looking pot, at the very least.

That’s excellent! I always end up with stuck pasta because I forget to stir, so it’d be ideal for me.
