This is my vintage food processor. It's from the early 80s. This was given to me by my boyfriend's grandma who had it in a box in her garage. She said her husband bought it for her and that it had been expensive at the time but that she had only used it maybe twice. It still works great and I'm glad to have it. There is also a picture of my corning ware percolator. It's not electric but it's old. This was also given to us by bf's grandma. For the first month we lived here that's all I had to make coffee with. On the stove no less!

This looks like something that would have been a prop in the McFly kitchen in 2015 in Back To The Future. Very cool "toy".

Lol. It does look like something from then. But despite looking clunky and cheesy looking it has pretty good power. I actually use it being it's the only food processor I have right now.

Defintitely hang onto it, I've never seen anything like that before, and I go to Goodwill a lot. Being a kitchen appliance, nobody collects them so they don't recirculate that much, once they break people just toss them out.

"being a kitchen appliance, nobody collects them."

WRONG! There are many members here and on AW that are collectors of kitchen appliances, cookware and more. On both sites is Hans Craig--Kenkart here, who has a BARN full of small appliances and cookware. On AW, members collect coffeemakers in all forms, electric mixers both stand and hand held, and many more kitchen appliances from all ages. Me? I have vacuums, love vintage stand mixers and cookware. If I had another big kitchen there would 2 or 3 stoves both gas and electric from Frigidaire, GE and Wedgewood.

The rules of this site talk about respecting other posters and your comment shows a lack of respect for his interests. He only a bit younger than you, living in a new place with a man he loves. He's asking questions about all things and that's what the Household category is all about! If you can't share his interest in knowing more about the new items he's being given, please refrain from posting. We don't put other posters down here! We encourage them! We can argue all we want on the attributes of this vacuum, floor nozzle, rug head etc, but with respect! As the saying goes, if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say it! This is site for collectors of ALL!

Thank you!
Greg Bushman

People out there do collect small appliance-there is a site just for mixer collectors.A food processor would be a machine related to both mixers and blenders.I do have a SMALL collection of small machines-not a huge one as other members here do.I only have so much space.And I have a small collection of digital cameras!I have a film one--but can't get film for it anymore.

Nice! I too love vintage appliances and feel they are of much higher quality than most anything you can buy new today. People tend to just toss them out or take them to thrift stores and buy something new. Their loss is your gain. Posting a few pics of my vintage appliances, including my GE food processor/blender that I found at a thrift store for a few dollars. It works great!

Umm, what?

I was not attacking you, I was not attacking Josh1998, I was not attacking kenkart. Read the rest of my comment that I wrote instead of focusing on just a section of it. I was speaking about SOCIETY, not the specific people of this forum, because if you would have read the entire comment you would have seen "I shop at Goodwill a lot" starting off the sentence.

Which means that IN SOCIETY when there are people that own a food processor or a microwave or a blender, whether it is this one or others, and they break, they don't just put it on eBay in hopes someone might be able to fix it and they can make some money off it, they throw it straight in the trash. This being the case, they rarely appear on the secondhand market because they are not going through the buy/sell cycle. They are used and then when they break down, that's the end of the line.

Contrast this to antique gas lanterns for example, or power line insulators, old flashlights, road signs, or such like that which have a strong following. When things like those are found they are cleaned up and put back into use and either are kept or resold back onto the market again for the next person to enjoy, thusly causing them to be more commonly seen because they are circulating enough, and not just stopping their life at the landfill. Makes sense?

I was not putting anyone down and there was no reason for you to get so irate over that. I have been on here a lot since fall of 2017 learning, and helping people out, and posting my finds. I have never attacked anyone. My first post about my (then) recent Kirby find I made on here matter of fact, I was greeted with someone attacking *me* telling me to leave because they thought I was whining.

EDIT: I looked back on that post, and to my surprise, it was you that was the person attacking me matter of fact.

HMMMM-have seen a LOT of street signs in the scrap bin at the local street maintenance yard here-so non one there collects them-they just get thrown into the scrap container-so road crews are not sign collectors!Probably because they are STATE property and have to be handled under their guidelines.
