And so another Sunbeam mixer is welcomed into the flock! Over Memorial Day weekend, my husband did a bit of rummaging and picked up the newest appliance for my growing collection, the Model 9 mixer in the foreground with the juicer attachment. It's in better condition than it's twin (almost) standing just behind AND we were lucky to get the original manual! For the back story on the previous two, read more here.
Here are a few pages showcasing all the attachments available for purchase. Thirteen in all, including: meat grinder/food chopper, drink mixer, slicer/shredder, butter churn, colander, can opener, bean slicer, ice cream freezer, coffee grinder, knife sharpener, polisher, pea sheller and potato peeler (click on any image to enlarge).
So I think a bit of organizing in the pantry is warranted as I have no counter space left, it being totally consumed by vintage machinery. But you can be sure that these mixers have not seen their last bowl of frosting . . . or in today's case, a Lazy Daisy Cake destined for strawberries and cream! I don't collect antiques only to support my love affair with the dust cloth, but to use them in all their vintage glory!
Is it possible to geek out over a stand mixer? Oh ya, baby!
