Oh lawdy, I can just imagine what today's idiot consumers would wind up doing with the snow flamethrower. Seems like a bad idea all around. Scorch your sidewalk! Melt the snow and it just turns into glare ice instead! BURN YOUR HOUSE DOWN.
Use our Croc Pot all of the time.
Some of these appliances may have went out of production for more than one reason. The double oven range with the slide in cooktop may have been found to be a fire hazard if pushed in the wall when a burner was on or still hot after cooking, while at the same time the average square footage of homes in the 50s and 60s were a lot smaller than many of the home built today, so the space saving features this provided back then isn't that important today. The free standing double oven range with an oven over the cooktop was popular with large families typical of the 50s and 60s, before microwave ovens became a common item in the kitchen in the late 70s or early 80s, and now it's common to have an over the range microwave oven with the range hood blower integrated. And some things are beginning to make a comeback, Big Chill has many products in various colors like red and teal blue, once fairly popular with vintage appliances and bathroom fixtures. Only time will tell.
I never heard of a refrigerator with a built in stove before
Countertop dishwashers are still sold, but they're usually special order.
My mom used a pressure cooker fir beans which was a precursor to thr crock pot. It had a little pressure valve at top the youldvpop up when the beans were done. We also had a coffee percolator which had a nob at the top and you could watch the coffee "bubble into a glass knobs as itceas being made. When this process stopped the coffee was ready to be enjoyed.
Another hand thing we had was a tea pot the would heat water for tea or instant coffee abd would whistle when itcwaa boiling. EVERYTHING took time but tasted better back then. OH FOR THE GOOD OL' DAYS when food was REAL eating without ARTIFICIAL ingredients preservatives or flavoring!
I don't think they're strange. Clever is more like it😁😃.
I want the portable washing machine.
I love all the color options there were back then. Not just different versions of White!
My grandpa says that cars used to have colors too but i can't imagine a car that's not black, white or a shade of gray
Tons of awesome products here except 2. I would not want my dishes washed in the same bucket as my dishes and the flame thrower snow remover, I seriously would have ended up burning my house down.
at 4:56 that kitchen layout is basically the same as a kitchen we had when I was younger, except no dishwasher(That's what us kids were for).
I still use my grandma's salad spinner the bowl is porcelain I think some kind of thick glass
The stove with burners that slide out of the way sounds intriguing until someone slides them back in with a burner still on. And the flamethrower to clear snow sounds good until that melted snow freezes into ice…
What a fun video! I love the first stove picture even though he didn’t talk about it. I have Wanted one of those things all my adult life. I think they’re so cool.
We had a avocado green and brown fridges
We had a gas powered refrigerator in our how , the freezer was so small all we could use it for was ice cubes ,the ice trays were metal and you pulled up a a handle to release the ice.
I want a wall fridge 😭😭😭
The combination stove refrigerator sink is still made an order one for my RV
What is the cabinet next to the stove in the thumb nail.
I miss the sound of my great-great aunt's electric can opener. I would use it to open the canned dog food.
My great-great aunt had THAT very Crock Pot.
The 'Telebar', seems like the ultimate 'man cave' "Do-It-All'. Then I'm reminded of that episode I saw on 'Beyond Belief: Fact or Fiction', called 'Couch Potato'. At the end he's sitting in his chair where he brings everything including a small fridge into his living room. Imagine if he had the 'Telebar'.
But one thing I noticed about the 'Telebar' that perked my antennae. The built in record player. It is bringing back a long suppressed memory where I remember seeing a cabinet type of furniture with a built in record player. It belonged to my great-great aunt. I never saw anyone use. I never knew if it worked or it was just waiting to be tossed out. For some time it just sat in our living room being used as rest for decorative objects. I used to meddle with it by pulling out the record player part and examine the mechanisms. It amazed me how it was constructed. Eventually this piece of furniture would suddenly disappear without a mention.
I've never seen anything like that, a fridge that looks like a cabinet. Surprising this idea wasn't considered when all these expensive apts that were going luxury. It's a perfect space saver for those that storing light. Yeah, the color options for home appliances are boring now. My great-great aunt had an aqua "green" freezer, a "yellow" fridge and deep freezer.
Bet the Japanese could do it. Since they have some households that try to conserve water so it doesn't go to waste.
Old apiances last for ever if you look after them now all these appliances with electronics and computers don't last past 5 years you're lucky if they last 8 years yet I know appliances from 1970s still working like new .
Used to work for Frigidaire, some of these things are still talked about but they just didn’t sell, more (like the all purpose washer) just didn’t work as intended, or did damage.
I have seen the combination sink/freezer/stovetop in videos showing space-saving apartments in Japan.
bring back that flamethrower
Is tappan still around
I LOVE my Crockpot and pancake griddle ! The griddle stays on my countertop to be ready for any meal.
The washer dishwasher had a drawback, don't leave on wash when doing dishes. Spinning China is dangerous.
I have the salad spinner . They still sell them here in Italy .
Portable dish washers still exist, I have one on a wishlist on Amazon!
Wow, the future looks… what do you mean the 1950s?
I still have my mom's Osterizer blender. It has like 12 settings, is heavy and the pitcher is glass. I've killed my share of more modern "smoothie" blenders and makers, but that Osterizer is well over 50 years old and will not die, lol! I love that thing!
Some old things were really good And if you find one it probably still works made in USA
That flat fridge is so neat!
Never put a washer dryer combo set near your kitchen. Trust me, I know. If you’re doing laundry and stick some in the dryer, while you’re cooking, your clothes will smell like your food. Either time your drying or put a door in between.
Those little stove/sink combos exist in Japan and are quite operational space savers.
Cook and wash could never return. Water and electricity 🤔 poof. 🤣
I feel like I remember seeing a stove with back burners tucked in halfway into the counter at somebody's old house when I was a small kid. I remember thinking it wouldn't be too good to cook on like that….
you can definitely still buy an electric griddle.
