LOL, not me.
Ingenius though.

I love it!

It's not me either...although I do confess to borrowing my husband's drill for various different jobs at the shop.

and well, we all know how microplanes became big.

Actually, I've seen this a lot here in Japan. Restaurant chefs sometimes make tempura batter this way, or takoyaki batter (which is basically pancake batter), and guys who do street stall food almost always do so. Is it really that unusual elsewhere? I mean, I never thought of it myself, but it seemed obvious enough once I saw it.

well it certainly is good idea if you're a street vendor (or just plain don't have a mixer)....they don't make many cordless mixers that can hold up well, I'm assuming.

get yourself an 18v DeWalt, and you're set to go!.

got it off this site...which is pretty funny.

Have seen drills mix concrete in a pinch. This I think is also ingenius.

If shaft was longer could be used to puree soups and sauces for a lot less $ then the one on market.

If it's variable speed and reversable it's better than any hand mixer I can find on the market.

Tools in the garage

For years I have used a half round chissel to bone out hams , and legs of lamb. You just push them right along the bone and they detach meat cleanly and neatly.

Hm... isn't Robin Hood flour a midwest product? They had a bakery in Davenport, IA. It smelled lovely when we drove up River Drive. DeltaDoc, to you remember? :lol:

Two of my "off lable" cooking tools

Back in Ottawa I used my cordless drill to convert a hand crank pasta roller into an automatic model. Kind of worked if you moved really fast...

And I still use this---a pair of dog nail clippers to trim small bird wing bones. For the record these clippers were never used on any of my boys (they were for a breed larger than I have).

Mezzaluna, I sure do. I also remember when it burned down. It was right at the end of the 1-way that led into River Drive.

I keep a channel lock pliers in my kitchen, works great on stuck jar lids.
