Swirl / Stirring mixer concept of cooking


When cooking in the kitchen, people often feel it is too hot. This is because the extra heat from the soup in the pot is released into the air, making the environment become hot, which is a waste of heat energy.
When cooking soup in a pot, we need to stir it from time to time to evenly heat it and prevent it from burning, which consumes a lot of our time and energy.
Applying SWIRL in these circumstances, it not only utilizes this wasted energy, but also helps us stir the soup, reusing the wasted energy and turning it into useful functions.
