Emergency Kitchen Tool: The Rotary Egg Beater

The Rotary Egg Beater, was a staple kitchen tool, until the electric beater came along.  Hand powered kitchen tools gave your arm, shoulder and fingers a workout. Now, all you need to do is hold an electric beater in your hand while it does all the work.  Or you can watch a blender, crush, mix and frappe without much effort on your part.

Before the advent of electric kitchen appliances, everyone used kitchen tools that were powered by elbow grease.

Electrically powered blenders, food processors, peelers, mixers, make food preparation fast and easy.

Hand powered kitchen tools provide exercise for your wrists, fingers, and arms.

In a weather emergency you may lose power.  Electrical appliances won’t work.  Grocery stores will be closed.  Be prepared to use other methods to prepare food, open cans, and to keep perishable food cold.

Remember this: when you don’t have power, and the grocery stores are not open, you can still eat healthy, but more simply.  You have to plan ahead for those emergencies.

Make The Rotary Egg Beater, a staple kitchen tool in your home.  When the power goes out, you can have your shake, and drink it too.
