A hundred years ago mixers were a little simpler. According to a 1921 advertisement, a Roberts Lightning Mixer beats everything.

clever double entendre there
I think we had something like this when I was a child. But it didn’t last long …
This is a fun advertisement. It’s interesting to see the price of the mixer. I think the simpler appliances may have been better in some ways, than the counter-space-eating miracle machines of today. 😀
I have s similar “Speed Whipper” that I use to make froth for my lattes! It works great on cream and lots of other things. It’s old and leaks a little, but it works so well I’ll keep it!
And so it begins – the improving and more innovation. Inez used a glass jar and just shook it! She used it for everything – even to make butter!!
This looks familiar to me. I do so enjoy reading your blog. So many images of my mother in the kitchen
We certainly have lots of choices now!
We had one of these. My parents used it in mixed drinks, but I have no idea how.
A gadget that sounds like a lot of women wanted to try out… I know I probably would have if I had the money.😄
I could do with something simple like that!xxx
