I made this for Myong today... Click for the video!
The stirrer is pretty cool but, it still doesn't dissolve certain things. That's where heat comes in handy. I could have just bought her the stirrer with heat built in but I didn't know then, and it was quite a bit more $$. This was made from a broken coffee maker, $12 in parts from RadioShack, and several hours of my time. With love. No harm was done to the stirrer either. It fits right into the cutouts I made in the front and back of the box almost perfectly.
The wiring is super simple. Hot from power cord goes thru switch, thru heating element, to neutral. That's it. This is a fancy switch that has red LED when off and green LED when on, built right in. All the metal (except screws and a bracket under the heat plate) is aluminum and therefore not magnetic, so it doesn't mess with the mixer's magnetic field. It gets really F'n HOT! and fast too. Problem Solved.
