Default Best way to aerate wort?

I have seen the stones used to aerate wort and folks seem to be happy with. Them. What about th at paddle with the collapsable tip that plugs into a drill? Is that product not as good for some reason? I have not seen it mentioned as much.

I've seen someone use that drill mounted one before. Home Brewer TV maybe? I just pour the wort/top off water into the fermenter as aggressively as possible to aerate it. Then stir aggressively as well before taking an OG sample/pitching. Works pretty good so far.

I use one of those plastic rack canes to stir the wort after I move it into the fermenting bucket.

The best way is to fill the head space with O2 and shake.
