Here's a memory that brings a question to mind every now and then. I've seen pictures of Sunbeam, Dormeyer and Hamilton Beach versions of their hand mixers on stands in the 1950/1960's but did GE ever sell such a model? I have this memory of being at the home of a lady from our church when I was a kid and the mixer on her counter looked like a mid-1950's GE portable but on a stand. Perhaps it was a 1950's triple whip model and I'd never seen one before, but I seem to remember the thumb speed selector on top.

They did, though mine is from the 60s. It is in avocado green, I will get a pic tomorrow.

Here's a pic I found online of a GE stand is the same model and colour as the one my aunt owned in the mid 60s. The speed can be adjusted using the red button or the dial on the top of the handle.

I used to have a Hamilton Beach mixer very similar to the green GE pictured in Reply #2, but in harvest gold. I tried using it as a hand mixer a time or two, but it was a bit too heavy to use comfortably that way; besides, putting it back on the stand was a pain and a half. It worked pretty decently as a stand mixer, but my ex-wife, after we got married, informed me that I couldn't bring it with me when I moved into her house because she had a KitchenAid, so out it went. She was just that way. I had no mixer for more than a decade, until I briefly got obsessed with vintage Sunbeam Mixmasters. I had four or five of them at one time, but these days, I'm down to just two, both chrome, one with a chrome metal base and one with a brown plastic base and a built-in work light. Two is really more than I need, but what the heck. They don't take up that much space.

I like the cameo that your Elux LX made!

I have one similar to the green one in reply 2, except mine is white. It has white glass bowls with the GE logo on the bottom center.

I really should get rid of it, I think I mainly got it because I was in a mixer collecting craze at the time. I was surprised it still has its original hang tag on it too.
