[Editor's note: These can also be found at the American version of Amazon]I have for several years on land been very happy to have a hand blender. I blended very little with it, but chopped rather a lot. Lots and lots of onions. Garlic. Nuts. Parsley. Everything is smoked in the chopper, and I have therefore looked for a replacement for it. Not because it is dying, but because of course it requires 220V and on the boat we have 12V. Best of all, it would be if you could find one which did not use electricity because it can at times a limited resource - despite the solar and wind. Other things have a much higher priority in current accounts than just a kitchen appliance which really could easily be replaced by a knife (it's just much easier to use a hack! Especially in a seaway.).
The answer to my prayers was a manual food processor, a VeggiChop from Chef'n . And it really IS the answer.
It is powered with a pull ring like a few salad slings do.
I've now tested it with onions, garlic, ginger and various spices, and it is something close to phenomenal!
Five jerks on the leash and onions are ready.
If one goes on and pulls fifteen-twenty times, then you have something similar to puree. Wow!
