Large Hamilton Beach Mixing Bowl – SOLD

I’ve always loved these vintage Hamilton Beach bowls! The bowls were originally sold as part of the HB mixers, which are quite seriously collectible today. While I’m a massive fan of pyrexware, I don’t normally buy plain pieces, but these bowls are an exception. I love the ridged lines that run around the circumference of the bowl, and the Hamilton Beach logo that’s embossed on the base is so lovely (unfortunately not visible in the pics). A perfect bowl for a large salad or pasta, or as a spare if you’re lucky enough to own the matching mixer!

Dimensions: 22cm in diameter x 12cm tall

Price: R120

Vintage Hamilton Beach Mixer – SOLD

It’s a real pity that the large pyrex bowl is missing from this vintage Hamilton Beach mixer, but they’re so hard to find in good nick (especially the chrome versions), that I just couldn’t pass up the opportunity! Plus I do come across the bowls by themselves from time to time, so I’ll likely be able to find the bowl at some point in the future. The chrome base is a little pitted in places, and the inside of the pyrex bowl is scratched from years of use, but the damage is minimal considering its age. The Hamilton Beach mixer was patented in 1938, although they continued to be manufactured for years, so it’s hard to tell the exact age of this machine, but Id’ say at a minimum you’re looking at at least 50 years old – I wonder how many mixers made today will still be going strong in 2060? A beautiful piece of machinery that will look fantastic in any kitchen. As good looking as any Kitchen Aid out there at a fraction of the cost!

Dimensions: Height of mixer – 27cm; Base – 18cm wide x 33cm long; Bowl – 16cm in diameter x 12cm high

Price: R540

Pair of Large Hamilton Beach Mixing Bowls – SOLD

For dome reason I just couldn’t get a clear shot of these vintage Hamilton Beach mixing bowls – something to do with how the light was reflecting off them, so you’re going to have to use your imagination a bit! The bowls would originally have come with a Hamilton Beach mixer (my favourite of the vintage mixers!). The bowls come in two sizes, with these being the larger of the two. While I love the Sunbeam mixing bowls, the HB bows are particularly nice with their ridged lines. My sister’s had one for years, and she says that it’s super handy in the kitchen and makes a great salad bowl. Sadly the one bowls has quite a few scratches on the inside base (caused by stirring) and one or two marks on the outside as well, but the damage isn’t too serious. These are handsome, sturdy bowls that will out last (and out-style) any modern mixing bowl.

Dimensions: Each bowl measures 21cm in diameter x 11.5cm tall

Price: R120 each

Collection of Pyrex Mixing Bowls – SOLD

Collection of pyrex mixing bowls

Those of you who have been following Mint for a while will know that I’m pretty much obsessed with pyrexware! And while I tend to prefer the brightly coloured (and patterned) pieces from the 1950s and ’60s, there’s something to be said for these plain mixing bowls that date more or less to the same period. Originally these bowls would have come as accessories to mixers, but obviously over time the mixers have given up the ghost. I particularly like the smaller ridged bowl that belongs to a Hamilton Beach mixer that dates to the early 1940s. There’s a slight scratch on the inside of the bowl, but other than that it’s pretty much perfect (what looks like a chip in the photo is actually a manufacturing defect) – impressive for a bowl that’s in the region of 70 years old! Only one of the Sunbeam mixing bowls is stamped on the base, but given that they’re identical I think it’s a fair guess that they were both originally part of Sunbeam mixers. I think that they’re probably a fair bit older than the HB bowl (they’re missing the detail that you’d normally find in an art deco piece), but they’re quality bowls that are sure to come in handy in the kitchen. A functional collection of bowls that are bound to be better quality than most of the bowls that you can buy today.

Dimensions: Hamilton Beach mixing bowl – 11.5cm tall x 16cm in diameter; Sunbeam mixing bowls – 12cm tall x 17cm in diameter

Price: Hamilton Beach mixing bowl – R85; Pair of Sunbeam mixing bowls – R65 each

Hamilton Beach Mixer – SOLD

Hamilton Beach mixer

This vintage Hamilton Beach mixer is in great condition given its age. There’s some discrepency over the exact date of manufacture -some sites say it dates to 1939, and others the early 1940s, but either way it’s close-on 70 years old. I doubt that many of the machines made today will still be going in the year 2080 – I think most of them will have made it to the scrap yard by then! In its day this was a top of the line machine retailing for nearly $30 in 1941 (see print ad below). I’ve never come across one before that has its juicer attachment – this version does, but sadly it’s missing the one crucial part that attaches the juicer to the machine – but if you persevere I’m sure you’d be able to pick one up fairly cheap on eBay. Fortunately it does still have both of its mixing bowls which are in perfect nick. The only serious wear and tear is to the mixing blades where the metal is slightly corroded, but I’m sure with some TLC they’ll keep going for a good few years. I’ve always thought that the HB mixer was quite beautiful, but you do get different models, and this version is particularly good looking – the design of the base just does it for me! A solid piece of design that will look good in any kitchen.

Dimensions: Stand – 32cm long x 19cm wide; Mixer – 22cm long x 15cm high; Large bowl – 22cm in diameter x 12cm tall; Medium bowl – 16cm in diameter x 11.5cm tall

Price: R720

Vintage Hamilton Beach mixer model 9-31

Vintage Hamilton Beach mixer model 9-31

Chrome Hamilton Beach mixers are like hens teeth in SA – in fact it’s hard to find any vintage HB mixers in working order, but the chrome ones are especially rare! This particular design was patented in 1938, but apparently was reproduced in the early ’60s, so I’m assuming this model is from the later period. The chrome is quite pitted in places and there are some areas where it looks like it’s been scratched, but the motor sounds fine and despite the wear and tear it’s still a beautiful looking machine – I don’t think there’s a mixer made today that can touch sides looks wise! I often find that older kitchen appliances are a lot stronger than their modern counterparts, but I don’t think this holds true for vintage mixers. They don’t seem to have quite the same power as the mixers you can buy today. That being said, while you want the machine to work, I think the primary purpose of this beauty is to sit there looking pretty! A gem of a machine that I truly wish was mine to keep!

Dimensions: Height of mixer – 27cm; Base – 18cm wide x 33cm long; Large bowl 22cm in diameter x 12cm high; Medium bowl – 16cm in diameter x 11.5cm high

Price: R580
