We use my mother's Kitchenaid mixer circa 1970ish. The same mixer is still made today in nearly the same configuration. Thing is a workhorse and still going strong. Used every week to make bread and cookies by my mom, and now by my kids mom.

My Kenmore (GE Profile) gas range is a 1996 model. Does that qualify as a "classic" yet.

I did inherit my father-in-law's Craftsman drill press, which probably dates from the 1940s.

Thanks for this thread -- I remember some of those older designs of toasters, blenders, etc.

Sorry but this is way off topic for cycling discussions. You can carry this on in Foo if you like and it’s moved there right now.

Thread moved from Classic and Vintage

If you've got an old counter-mounted stovetop, even a full oven/stove combo, and you want to replace it, look around on your local Craigslist or similar for buyers. There are lots of folks who want those things for period-correct remodels. Those things were built like tanks, and they were real simple electro-mechanical devices. I had a stovetop and wall-mount double oven that I got $700 for when I remodeled my early-1960s kitchen.

Some of these designs are completely energized inside the case - pretty sure most of the old guard here knows this.

Nevertheless, as such, it's a wise thing to update the cable - especially as the originals have NO ground.

Also, a nice video from Technology Connections on the subject of period Sunbeam toasters:

Were you peeping through his windows? I think he was showing the toaster, not trying to sell anything else in the house.

We use this every day. It had a meatloaf in the oven when I took the picture. The magazine ad above it shows the right hand model rather than our left handed one.

For example, from the image links:
Liftable broiler on the left, deep well with pot, 3 burners, oven, and storage. The enamel cover folds down over the burners.


Our last house had a Merritt O'Keefe stove similar to this design, the bad part about it was the main stove was to just the right size for our aluminum pizza plate when cold, but the plate jammed tight inside the stove when hot. My 8th grade science class's ring and ball thermal expansion experiment instantly came to mind. 🔥

For me that's the main attraction of vintage, people often tried to build the best thing they could. Not thinking about the replacement market so often build to last and keep the customer happy about the toasts.

Roasted chicken in my 1956 Chambers 90-C last night. Used a Lisk No. 6 roasting pan.

Genius damn toaster... and not one touch screen or diode to ruin your day. A touch screen on a toaster... really? Yup, just saw one.

And yes, it raises and lowers your bread, and does bagels... but for $300... would you expect anything less???

I found mine in an alley.
I suggest you give the gearcase a regreasing.

That Sunbeam was pretty cool.

How about the English beauty, the Duolit? Warning, it's English, so it breaks.

I did house inspections a long time ago. I went to turn on a light in the cellar, I should have known, it was bakelite, meaning a bazillion years old. When I touched it, it knocked me several feet back, and I wasn't quite right for a week.

Toaster needs to be rewired..
