Nowadays, most people are completely reliant on their electric kitchen appliances to make a meal. Mixers, blenders, microwaves, electric ovens, and so forth. But if the grid ever goes down, they won’t be able to cook anything. That’s why it’s best to start acquiring powerless appliances now.
Of course, the possibility of the grid going down isn’t the only reason to stop relying on electric appliances.
