Here's an excerpt from a Wikipedia article:

"A few gasoline and gas-powered appliances exist for use in situations where electricity is not expected to be available, but these are typically larger and not as portable as most small appliances. Items that perform the same function as small appliances but are hand powered are generally referred to as tools or gadgets, for example a hand cranked egg beater, a grater, a mandoline, or a hand-powered meat grinder."

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Small_appliance

I think if the title of the thread was named "Small Electric Appliances" it would have solved the issue.

Argh... I've tried 3 times to post a comment and each time I hit submit my power goes down.

Been flashing up and down faster than the proverbial toilet seat in a co-ed dorm!

I had to edit my list multiple times because I kept remembering something else.

Maybe you're using too many small kitchen appliances simultaneously?
