1948 Hamilton Beach Mixer

A new member of our family came in very handy this morning. 
This fall we were lucky to find a purchase a 1948 Hamilton Beach Mixer with the juicer attachment for less than the cost of a weeks worth of Starbucks coffee. We found the booklet for it at Vintage Books in Vancouver, WA for $4.00.
Today, with an abundance of mandarin oranges, we were able to make fresh orange juice.
Very easy to use, quick and painless clean up and great, fresh juice.
You can have the "good life" without spending too much if you take the time to look for it.


  1. I agree, there are millions of foods that you can make at home that people choose not to because of the "convenience" of buying it at the grocery store. It isn't very convenient, however, when their organs start to shut down from all the preservatives and other junk that is put into those convenience products.
