The essential function of a drill is almost identical to that of a blender, in that it consists of an electric motor that spins something at a high rate of speed. Because a drill is a tool for construction while a blender is a kitchen appliance, one usually would not consider using it to do the same things. However, with a slight modification, you can use a power drill to mix batter for cakes and cookies or make milkshakes.
Things You'll Need
- Electric drill
- Damp rag
Clean the drill. Unless it is brand new, it is probably covered in dust, oil, and dirt, and you do not want this falling into your food or drinks. Wipe it clean with your damp rag. Wring out the rag first to ensure that you do not drip water inside the electrical components.
Remove the drill bit by sticking the key for the drill into its hole in the drive head and turning it to the left. Remove the drill bit and place the beater in its place. Hold the beater and the drive head with your hand and run the drill until it tightens around the beater.
Place the beater into the bowl or pitcher that is full of whatever you want to blend. Run the drill and move it in smooth circular strokes until the mixture is smooth.
Tips & Warnings
- Do not stick your fingers between the beater tines as you are securing it into the drill, as this could cause injury.
- The speed of your drill may be faster than the highest speed on your blender, so be very careful.
