I bought this Brand New unopened Hoover Blender from ebay for $130. It is so awesome. It is from the 1960s and works so well. These are very rare to find brand new unopened from the box. Hoover is one of the rarest blender brands. I waited 3 years to buy a Hoover Blender brand new, and I finally got it. They do say those who wait will get what they want. I got what I wanted.

I too have the cream colored version as pictured on the manual. I'm old and bought it new way back in the early days of electricity laughing

Too funny... I have to call my relatives to make sure they still have all their older things still in the basement for when I visit.

Love the avocado green. I would guess that to be in the '63-'65 era as coppertone and harvest gold were more prevalent in the latter part of the decade.

Great find--enjoy!

I wonder if Hoover made blenders in the 50s. I've seen some that don't have a solid state logo, and that look a lot older.

non vacuum Hoovers

Others will know more but the first non vac product was the iron in late 40s.Then the small washer in 50s.Then about 1970 blenders & toasters & coffee pots & shoe polishers & fry pans & air filters & fans & electric knives & hair dryers & ???.
Nice blender above.I have good used Hoover blenders and fry pans that will be on EBay as time allows.

I believe these were made by Knapp-Monarch under the Hoover name. It would make sense that they showed up around 1970 as Hoover bought Knapp Monarch in 1969.

Since finding this site

a few years ago, it amazes me that something made 50 years ago is still brand new and unopened. I wonder what the story is behind that blender?

I am thinking it was an estate sale find. The ebay user went to an estate sale and bought this blender for $10 and then sold it for $150. I made an offer for $130 and he took it. You can find some NOS items at an estate sale. I am wanting a NOS vacuum cleaner from the 70s or 60s, but I know it will be probably about in the high hundreds, since NOS vacuum cleaners are the rarest items you will ever find.

you think NOS vacuums are rare? try finding a classic car 30+ years old in drivable condition with good interior/paint with less than 10 miles on it. you WILL pay a very LARGE fortune for that, even with my specialty classic car interest, ford country squire and mercury colony park station wagons post 1974 -1987

Hoover solid state

Hi, does anyone know how I can get a replacement gasket for my Hoover Solid State blender? It's fabulous and it was my great uncle's - I'm 52 and he died 25 years ago! It started leaking.

Any help would be so appreciated!!

You may have to make one from an inner tube or rubber gasket material.Use the old gasket as a pattern to cut a new one-or make several while you are at it!

Aren't the gaskets just flat rubber? Cut it out of a sheet of rubber gasket material.
