A ridged spoon descending from the inside roof of the microwave .Spoon maybe attached using suction cups . Magnets ????Spoon traces patterns in food as bowl rotates off-centre .
A lot of ideas - crankshaft , lazy susan with edge turning by touching inside of microwave and even little motors
running on microwaves but for this simple is best .
A suction cupped long flexible spoon that attaches at centre of platter rotation on inside roof .
A rollick attached to spoon has a L shaped form that
is held ridgid by the weight of dish the spoon is stirring .
The rollick is in radius line , on the inside edge of the dish . The dish is smaller than platter and sitting as far out on platter as possible .
As the dish/food goes round on the platter
the spoon is twisted and the twist releases through the rollick bearing surface stiring the food .
OK not quite a spiral but definitely twisty .
||The spirograph pen is not stationary. I believe you will find that your suctioned spoon will create nothing more than a spot or circle (depending on the spoon's distance from roof center) in the oatmeal, a bit off-center (depending on the bowl's distance from center).
