Vintage Osterizer Blenders

From the John Oster Manufacturing Company of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, this Osterizer CycloMatic vintage blender not only has classic retro style, but it has a really cool and useful analog timer-based pulse blend conrol that automatically blends-cuts off-blends until the designated time has elapsed. It has ten speeds with corresponding push-buttons. It looks awesome, with a high-shine chrome body, white & metallic blue control panel with raised embossed Osterizer logo, and a real glass pitcher with bakelite base and handle. Perfect for the home bartender or mixologist, the removable plastic cap in the lid has 1oz and 2oz measurement lines. The pitcher holds 4 cups and is also measured (but not in metric!). The Osterizer CycloMatic model 677 E is tested and works perfectly. It is also in excellent cosmetic condition, clean and ready to use! The blender was used and there is some minor spotting / pitting in the chrome, as well as some faded spots on the brushed aluminum knobs. Overall, it still works wonderfully and looks great just sitting out on the kitchen counter. It stands a total of 15 inches tall. Scroll down to see the original beehive Osterizer, a true American classic.

RETRO ROBOT VOICE KENMORE TALKING ICE CREAM MACHINE

kenmore talking ice cream machine

This stunningly high-tech device is the Kenmore Talking Ice Cream Machine...yes, folks, the future has finally arrived 30 years ago...and you didn't even know it, did you? Here at your vintage online store, we have found it all just for you.  The Kenmore Talking Ice Cream Machine churns away in your freezer while a talking box with the voice of Stephen Hawking gives you updates like, "Your Kenmore Ice Cream Machine is Working", and "Your Ice Cream is Ready" in a classic Speak 'n Spell computer tone. So, civilization has a talking ice cream machine all this time and STILL no jetpacks or flying cars...whatever. This vintage ice cream maker appears to be barely used and all parts are intact and in excellent working condition. It was poorly stored and does show some cosmetic flaws; a few scratches and chips on the white wire frame and the oil/lubricant that the factory used to grease the motor dripped and stained the seam areas of the plastic unit. All pieces that actually contact food ingredients are in perfect condition. The box shows moderate wear and tear, but assembly and use instructions are still perfectly legible on the side. A recipe book was originally included, but it is gone. Ice cream recipes on the internet appear to be fairly universal, no matter what ice cream maker is used. Shock and amuse your family and friends with this oddity, then enjoy the tasty results! It appears to be a 2-quart capacity, fully assembled unit measures 11 inches x 9.5 inches x 7 inches. Made in USA.

This 1955 vintage Kitchen-Quip brand Foodmaster kitchen slicer shredder chopper is the "Deluxe Five Cone Model", complete with all five cones and the original instruction book with recipes. The Foodmaster is constructed of solid aluminum with heavy-duty stainless steel cutting cones and has a nice bright red embossed logo. The black rubber suction feet still work well and hold the Foodmaster in place on countertop surfaces when in use. The item was used and shows minor wear and tear, but is still in very good condition. A few of the cones have small rust spots where they attach to the crank mechanism (not on the cutting blades or food surfaces). The blades are still very sharp. The front and back covers of the instruction book are loose (see last photo). The assembled Foodmaster measures 9 inches tall and was manufactured by Kitchen-Quip of Waterloo, Indiana.
