One way I try to reduce my energy use is with a hand crank food processor. Another way is with a hand crank blender. I love my hand crank blender. It does the job, and it uses no energy. It even comes with two speeds! An added bonus – my arms get a workout.
I bought my hand crank blender from a sporting goods store. Search Vortex blender on Internet, and you should be able to find one.
Stop subsidizing SWEPCO and Entergy! Reduce your energy use by switching to hand crank appliances!
