Cruising Gadget: Vortex Hand Crank Blender

The marketing literature for the Vortex Blender says, "Increase your popularity. Make new friends. Pick up ladies. These are just a few of the hidden benefits of owning our hand-cranked blender." We don't know about that, but it is a great product.

We run a simple ship with only a moderate number of electric gadgets. We use foot pumps and only have an emergency water maker. When we started looking around for a blender, this one fit in perfectly.

The crank is very powerful and has two speeds. The base will clamp firmly to a table or counter. In every other way, it looks like a regular blender, but it won't drain your batteries like a anchor windless.

It is made by GSI Outdoors. We found ours at REI, but it can be had elsewhere as well for about the price of a normal kitchen model.
