As so, I decided to add some juice to my manual and boring ice cube crusher..I wish you could see the look on my girlfriend's face when she saw it :D.

Ok down to business, Here's what i did to make it happen.

    I didn't know such an appliance existed!

    I've been looking for some way to grind/chop/reduce my kitchen waste for composting and was thinking along the lines of a paper shredder. This might be a solution.
