Short info

From the Gadget Warehouse: The Salton Cook 'n' Stir.

Detailed information

Salton's Cook N' Stir

Salton, who made the Hot and Cold Tray, also made this Cook N' Stir, in about 1984.  Dick got his from Hammacher Schlemmer.  A self-stirring saucepan with a motorised rotating paddle to cook and stir your sauces, puddings, and naturally, the all-important gravies, while you go and check on the meaning of the "vernal equinox".

Tefal made a similar product called Le Saucier.  Still available is the Stir Chef, which does not cook, but sits on top of a saucepan stirring the pot, while the pot itself is being heated on the stove.


Salton's associated company Black and Decker apparently owns the Gizmo brand.  I hope Dick gets his share of royalty on the use of the name.

Dick's Gadget Warehouse ...

... was built in about 1920, Dick reckons, with 7-foot thick stone walls, and built like a fortress.  Its size is about 10' x 10' x 10' (see Episode 5, the first Warehouse Friday).

The Jerk Store

Kelly from the Jerkstoppers Store in California wants their Jerkstoppers (Episode 507) back, namely Dick and Leo.  A take-off of the Seinfeld Jerk Store.
