Re: Manual food processor or blender?

Hey, Skippa. My ex girl friend has a hand crank blender which works pretty well - two speed, clamps to a counter edge. I'll call her and get the brand name and get back to you.

Re: Manual food processor or blender?

What about a Mouli?

Mouli Julienne Grater Food Processor 5 Discs 445 Box | eBay

We have one of these at home. I keep thinking we should try it on the boat, but have not yet. Works great.

Re: Manual food processor or blender?

I know this is not really what you're looking for but I couldn't help but think about some of the gas powered blenders I have seen in remote locations.

One such is at The Daiquiri Whacker Gas Powered Portable Blender

Re: Manual food processor or blender?

I ended up with a normal $25.00 110v blender. I already have an inverter and I just couldn't justify the cost of something else that wouldn't work as well. I only use it for 5 minutes a month so it's not like I need another solar panel for it.

I agree about a chef's knife for almost everything but when it comes to pureeing the best thing is a high quality hand blender (110V) or a 12-volt Waring blender. My hand blender is a Miallergo and makes the creamiest mashed potatoes ever. My 12-volt Waring blender is heavy and bulky to carry but it's a workhorse, unlike small, battery-op blenders that are underpowered and do not puree heavy duty stuff in smoothies

Hereabouts that be fightin' talk

Me uses one of these:-



and the secret to the creamiest mashed potatoes ever is Jersey butter and Jersey Double Cream (and plenty of mashing ).

Re: Manual food processor or blender?

The best chopper is ProChopper, available from Amazon. Only get the three blade version. Makes tapenade as fast a Cuisinart. Ditto hummus, cole slaw etc. Hand worked but easy to use.

Re: Manual Food Processor or Blender?

I have a couple of friends with the Vortex Hand Blender mentioned by BadSanta. They love it and I've seen it in action, works really well.

Re: Manual Food Processor or Blender?

My wife loves her handheld 110 volt blender thingie, but recently got a VitaMix.
It needed a new inverter, so of course I said OK !!
Now we have a 1500 watt sinewave inverter to power the 1000 watt VitaMix.
It makes great smoothies while drawing 92 amps for one minute, but the solar brings the batteries back to 100% charge in a couple of hours.
