Matthews Fans: You Spin Me Round, Round Baby!


Ceiling fan designs have come a long way in the past couple of years.

Eva Solo Gas Grill

RPM Blender

What can make a boring old kitchen blender cool? A tachometer of course! I wanna know the exact speed at which my smoothie is being blended and I don’t mean “low,” “medium,” and “high.” I’m talking rotations per minute!

That’s right, this blender by L’Equip will have you L’Squeeling with glee as you watch the little needle rev it up between 500 and 20,000 RPMs. There’s even a toggle switch; and if you’ve been keeping up with the posts here on WithoutStyle, you’ll know we’re big fans of toggle switches.

Don’t know if it will blend an iPod, but the solid looking brushed steel base with a the polycarbonate blending jug and tamper stick will make a great looking and functional addition to any kitchen or bar.

Available at Table Tools for $134.00
