Very effective


Excellent resource for tedious task of mixing paint


Best painting gadget


Love the mixing mate paint can lid. Locks on tightly, keeps paint from drying out, and no messy drips. Does a fantastic job of stirring paint without the “spill over”. Liked the first one I bought so much that I bought a second.More > < Less

Great invention


So long as you are working with only a gallon can this idea is great and works well.

About Rockler

Mix, Pour & Store

Who hasn’t struggled to open a crusty paint can with a screwdriver, only to find the contents have solidified? The Mixing Mate’s can mixer and lid combo seals, mixes, and pours, to make painting (and staining or varnishing) a drip-free breeze.

The Mixing Mate locks securely onto quart- or gallon-sized cans, creating a seal that prevents the contents from spills and drying out. Crank the handle and the auger-style interior paddle lifts settled pigments from the bottom for a more thorough mix. So, goodbye, wooden paint stirrer.

You control pours with the trigger on the handle and, when you’re done, keep the lid on to store the can or rinse it out to use on another one.

Rockler Woodworking and Hardware Company is behind the Mixing Mate. They have been family-run for 60 years, and are proud of the decades spent helping DIY-ers and woodworkers. With this handy lid, any job or touch-up is easier and neater.
