Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I had a wonderfully efficient mechanical beater that you clamped to the edge of the table. You turned a large cogged wheel with a handle on the wheel that transferred the energy through a simple gear. The two interlocked beaters could be twisted out of the gear for washing. Simple, efficient and cheap.

It is now on the island where we try to do without electricity during the summer, although there's a PV panel for minimal lighting that is somewhat safer than candles or fueled lamps with kids around.

The only electric kitchen gadget I have is a zapper, or 600 watt handheld blender with a tiny sharp propellor blade in a shallow housing. Ideal for purées and soups.

You can't be me, I'm taken
