Crank up your mixer

Whether you've got a spare outlet, you can still run the Dual Speed Hand-Crank Mixer.

The Dual Speed Hand-Crank Mixer Lehmans

I've been in plenty of situations where I needed to mix up a bowl of something but there was no power available: kitchens where plugging in one more appliance would throw a breaker, places that just didn't have power, and even RVs where running a mixer just wasn't an option. Whether you're living off the grid or just not able to reach an outlet, however, there is an alternative to an electric mixer: the Dual Speed Hand-Crank Mixer. This mixer is built by an Amish craftsman and requires less effort than mixing by hand. Just by turning the hand-crank, you can get professional results.

The Dual Speed Hand-Crank Mixer has a sturdy 4-quart plastic bowl with a splash cover guard cover that sits on top of an aluminum casting housing. It's built to last even if you're using it on a daily basis. The mixer weighs 21.25 pounds, so it isn't exactly portable. It comes with both a dough hook and twin beating whisks. You can choose what speed to mix at--high or low--although you don't have to crank any harder for high speed. The Dual Speed Hand-Crank Mixer is available for $650.
