That is the greatest piece of kitchen equipment I've ever seen!
I want one.

I have seen a similar model...

I might be able to one-up it, though: [nearly] Annually, we rent a sailboat in the British Virgin Islands and sail around for a week or so... snorkeling, SCUBA diving, enjoying island cocktails, etc. The first few years, we really wished we had a blender on the boat. These boats usually do not have 120v service (unless you are plugged into shore power). We got smart one year and brought a nice blender and a 900 watt inverter. So, when it was time to mix some drinks (you know, like 9:30am, for instance), we opened one of the engine access hatches and clamped the inverter to a battery... then started up one of the Volvo/Penta diesel engines and whiirrrrrrr! -- we were in business!

That's pretty cool, all right- a diesel-powered blender!
But I have to say that the motorcycle-style hand grip throttle on that other one opens up a whole new world of Culinary Mayhem possibilities...
Talk about variable speed!

It'd look good on the shelf next to the 1/2 in. drill I use to core apples.

I've seen one of those gas powered blenders-the whole campground sits up and takes notice when you fire that thing up since it sounds like a dirt bike--lots of people wander by to see what all of the noise is about-which helps the party to grow and helps use up the margarita ingredients quickly!


I found a great battery operated blender for our blended drinks and smoothies while off the grid-it uses powerful rechargeable Black and Decker Batteries-more low key, but that means less people wandering over and requesting samples and more margaritas for our campmates

If one needs a blender it seems it's an ideal candidate for an Inverter. Though Blenders can draw 600 watts, they don't run for very long. A 1200 watt Inverter can be purchased for $60-70 and has multiple uses.
