We had a avocado green and brown fridges
Haha, my mum had the orange centrifuge :p
Omg I need that fridge stove sink all in one deal that looks really cool. What if we had something like that today but it had interchangeable parts like that Motorola phone nobody gave a toot about. I would actually buy this though because it’s actually useful for small apartment living
The washer dishwasher had a drawback, don’t leave on wash when doing dishes. Spinning China is dangerous.
you can definitely still buy an electric griddle.
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…
Very interesting thanks !!
Lol i get the naxon crockpot thing. One day our grandkids will probably say iPhones and androids were the same thing and we will go "no they are not"
I LOVE my Crockpot and pancake griddle ! The griddle stays on my countertop to be ready for any meal.
Salad spinners are still around. You can buy them everywhere.
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….
3:51 Samantha on "Bewitched" had one of those oven/stoves
The old items last longer than the new ones
Who owned a pressure cooker?
Too bad that there are too few appliance manufacturers. Kitchen Aid, Maytag are owned by Whirlpool. Nether are the quality they were when Kitchen Aid was part of Hobart and Maytag was it’s own entity. GE appliances is not owned by GE corporation. We have also lost Amanda, Magic Chef, Merritt, Wedgwood and O’Keefe. Samsung and LG are nothing to write hope about.
I want a wall fridge 😭😭😭
I’ve seen that sink/stove/fridge combo in a garage inlaw unit we remodeled. It worked fine so we left it.
If you look at an older smaller trailer or RV, they have the same concept, except separate components in a cabinet.
Still have the redish orange crock pot
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!
Actually bring it all back so cool we’ve all become the same every appliance’s are the same these days i’m sure we are afraid of colours and we stick to the same safe colour which is white silver, black brown
bring back that flamethrower
I have the salad spinner . They still sell them here in Italy .
Is tappan still around
The "Bespoke Refrigerator" from Sammsung has easily replaceable front panels in a multitude of attractive colors and finishes. We change panels with the seasons.
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 .
Wish we still had them
I’d LOVE to have that Frigidare Imperial range with its pull out burners!!
Wow, the future looks… what do you mean the 1950s?
I am still trying to figure out what Microwave to buy 🙃
Only like 50 different options.
That wall refrigerator is genius. Especially for someone in a studio apartment or tiny home.
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.
Cook and wash could never return. Water and electricity 🤔 poof. 🤣
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 have seen the combination sink/freezer/stovetop in videos showing space-saving apartments in Japan.
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.
Turntables and tube amps have come back.
Tele bar and wall fridge wow love that ❤
That flat fridge is so neat!
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.
When I was in college in the 80s our dorms had several apartments for guests and single teachers. My roommate was handicapped so she and I were allowed to live in one of the apartments. We had the sink/two eye stovetop/refrigerator in our room.
The combination stove refrigerator sink is still made an order one for my RV
I used to get into grandma’s bar when she wasn’t looking. Back then, if you could pour it, you were old enough. lol
3:50 my grandmother had that exact stove. It probably worked fine when new but given it’s age, it kept breaking and parts were discontinued. Because of it’s non-standard shape, she ended up needing to have her kitchen remolded just to replace the stove.
Countertop dishwashers still exist. I have one.
Quite a few of these things still exist and are just more energy efficient now.
Some old things were really good And if you find one it probably still works made in USA
My only question is why aren’t more people talking about the flame gun? We regressed to using shovels over this?
Those little stove/sink combos exist in Japan and are quite operational space savers.
I still use my grandma’s salad spinner the bowl is porcelain I think some kind of thick glass
What is the cabinet next to the stove in the thumb nail.
Portable dish washers still exist, I have one on a wishlist on Amazon!
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.
