Hi everyone, I just ordered a 1950's General Electric Triple Whip mixer. I discovered that there are 2 different variations in the model I have! I know that General Electric made the first Triple Whip in the 40's, I have one. If anyone knows anything about the Triple Whip and can help me, please!!! I would like to know if I have the early 50's or the later 50's model! The gray and white mixer in the pictures is mine and the all white and red lettered mixer is the other model like mine, but has subtle differences. Thank you! :) -Michelle

Wow What a blast from the past. My Grandmother had one of those GE Mixers. I loved to watch that mixer in action.

sorry I can't tell you much about it other than Nice Mixer.

GE Triple Whip Mixer

You are correct there were 3 variation in the GE horizontal triple whip mixers.

All of them had beaters with no center post.

The first had the speeds marked on the gray speed dial and had no written speed guide on the mixer and no beater ejector, I don't know its model number. The beaters had a knurled surface to make gripping them easier to remove. The juicer of the model required a metal mounting bracket that the juicer bowl rested upon, and it had no strainer.

The second is model 133M9 having a a gray dial and the 12 speed guide printed on the mixer. Same knurled beaters and juicer of the first model.

The third mixer is their M12 model having a white dial speed guide and ejector mechanism (turn dial to the left past off to actuate). GE stopped producing triple whip mixers around 1956 and their all-purpose mixer the model 25 was introduced. Th mixer has a plastic juicer having a tray/spout that attached where the mixer body, the strainer bowl sat atop that and the reamer was inserted in the middle of both pieces.

The speed reducer and meat grinder of the previous vertical triple whip models also fit the horizontal mixers too.

Each model had its own recipe/instruction booklet having some common recipes others

I hope this helps you out. The instruction booklets of all the models have surfaced on ebay.

Earliest Triple Whip model

What is pictured is the earliest model I have described. Having no written speed guide. How many speed setting are written on the dial?

Wow!!! Thank you very much!!! That's exactly what I wanted to know!!! I collect electric hand and stand mixers! I have 25 stand mixers and a crap load of hand mixers! Awesome, so mine is the earliest!?!? That's cool! To me, I was guessing mine was the earliest due to the lack of styling/no mixing guide. Mine has 12 speeds. I just got it today in the mail! It works good too! I have the original triple whip from the 40's with original big bowl and juicer, so I can share those with my new one! I have 5 GE stand mixers: 1935 GE Hotpoint model 139DM4 3 speed, 1940's Triple Whip model 149M8, 1950's Triple Whip model 123M9, late 50's or 60's model 17M25, and a 1970's model D4M44. I have way more Sunbeams, every model starting with the model 3 and up. I'm very knowledgeable on the Sunbeams, just want to get smart on the GE's now!!! Thanks again! :) -Michelle

Mixer collector here too!

My collection consists mostly of Sunbeam and Hamilton Beach in chrome both hand and stand models. Also have on GE M 25 and a Westinghouse FM 511 both are so quiet compared to others at even high speed. My everyday workhorses are Kitchenaids.

That GE M25 mixer is the least durable of the lot. The beaters rotate the opposite of most models too. The only other stand mixer that does is a Sunbeam EM stand mixer, to my knowledge.

Mixmaster man

human's profile picture
Until very recently, I had four Sunbeam Mixmasters, but now i'm down to three. My favorite is a Mixmaster Vista from the mid-late '70s, chrome with a brown base. I really like the built-in work light. Paid a whopping $5.75 for it in like-new condition at a thrift shop. I've also got an all-chrome Mixmaster with brown accents from the same era. The last one is an incomplete early '80s Mixmaster (permanently attached cord and no power takeoff) that's really just a collection of spare parts. It's chrome with brown accents, sitting on a white base and missing the square beater. I also have a food processor (slicer/shredder) attachment that goes onto the two with power takeoffs on top.

The one I recently parted with was a late '80s or early '90s white plastic one with black accents. The lady I've been dating recently made a comment that she'd like to have a stand mixer (without knowing about all the ones I have) so I brought it over to her as a surprise. Her kitchen is done all in black and white, so it looks quite at home there. I'm glad she's enjoying it instead of it just gathering dust in my cabinet with the other three.

GEstand mixers thanks for the information in this thread !

Hi everyone

This was a help for me too. I'm new here and from Antwerp Belgium. On my website I have started a few years ago an International Register of Household Appliances. Of course that is work in progress, and this week I am busy with the GE stand mixers. Their numbers etc are a bit confusing. I never understood why companies never used a more logical numbering, for ex 40 always referring to stand mixers, 50 to hand held mixers and 60 to blenders. Than a year fpr ex. a 50-56 would be a hand held mixer from 1956 etc.

My website will probably stop this year, but as all websites it will get archived via the internet archive:*/retroscoop...

But what I really would like to somehow built is a website solely called International Register of Household Appliances (IRHA). The whole thing is written donw on paper (I used to work for the very user friendly Belgian database for historical heritage Erfgoedplus): a section for company histories, a section where all appliances of all brands can be described with model numbers etc and a section for pictures of the appliance, its packaging and the main documentation (front scan of the instruction booklets etc) In the last segment, these instruction booklets could be added completely, or booklets for former repair shops etc. And then, the idea would be to find people in every country that ever built such appliances to fill in the files like other people make Wikipedia articles. Apparantly, here on Vaccum land I'll be able to find a lot of collectors with the necessary expertise ! But first, I'll have to find the necessary financial support for the whole project, why not from wealthy entrepreneurs that finance cultural relevant projects... And there is definetely a need for one such database, in which everything can be brought together, in stead of scattered around on multiple websites. So that those interested in GE stand mixers can easily see which other things GE made etc.
I can be reached via

By the way, I ave an "all brands" question: I've seen several hand miwers from the late 1950's which got special colors (so something else than white, milk white, silver or green from the 1930's models):were there some companies that did the same with stand mixers ? (for the moment being I'm restricting the registration to pre 1960 models)
Thanks a lot for your comments

GE Stand mixer with the grey speed selector

The unidientified model Cajunvac talks about, the one with the speeds on the grey speed dial is apparantly the 123 M 9

I'm still puzzled by the vertical mixers ("soup can models"): there seem to be at least three, but right now I don't know the difference between them

139 DM 8 (instructions booklet from 1941 (was there a DM 1, 2,...?)
149 DM 7
149 M 8 (8 speeds)

Is there no reference book on all these standmixers, or on those of GE ? Someone already tried to make a complete list of all the models ?


Does the DM and the M mean something specific, anyone ?
