We can't be certain of the thought process one would have to undertake before buying this self stirring mug for themselves or as a gift, but we imagine it would go something like this: I/my loved one have/has very delicate wrists. I/my loved one am/is very, very lazy. I/my loved one do not/doesn't own any spoons. Those are the three conditions you'd have to satisfy in order to make a self stirring mug make sense.
We hate this idea. We hate it on many levels, not the least of which is the misguided addition of a robotic swirling mechanism being added to something that by nature holds very hot liquid. We also hate that it is $18.99. We also hate that it says SELF STIRRING MUG on the side as if you could forget.
We'll stick with spoons, thank you.
