So I ask you - who need power guzzling kitchen helpers to make delicious food? My only regret is that I was unable to find all my plastic items in wood - but I console myself with the fact that at least I'm not using any power when I need their help in my kitchen.
What implements do you have in your kitchen which are "off the grid"? I would love to see a photo of them - you can e-mail me at: dani at ecofootprint dot co dot za. If you like I will do another post to show them off for you...? :-)
