Mix-Stir - Stainless Steel
Mount on an electric hand drill to mix must, de-gas wine, or agitate lees. 22" long, stainless shaft with replaceable plastic blades. The collapsible wings make it easy to insert into and remove from a carboy.
I like this stirrer very much. Love the fact that it’s stainless steel and that the paddles are mobile so they can fold to get into small openings but then fan out when in motion. However the paddles are a flimsy plastic than I don’t trust very much and they are held together by a simple nut and bolt that becomes loose very easily. Perhaps the plastic is intended to not damage the inside of the whatever vessel it’s being used in. For the price tag I would expect those little 2 issues to be fixed.
Woks great, but will only go into carboy at certain angel-way and don't use drill on high speed. I use cloth in my hand to control shaft wobble, also don't have container to full because of whirlpool action of liquid being stirred will spill out liquid.
works great. degasses the wine in less time and much easier than stirring manually
Doesn’t hold in my drill, needs grooved
The only criticism that I have is that, for the price, I think the paddles could have been stainless steel, too. This would have made the degasser totally robust. There could be reasons, other than cost, that the paddles are nylon, but it is the only minor concern that I had about the long term durability of the product.
