A couple of Thrift Store finds

Went to the town thrift store and scored an Osterizer blender Model 432 circa 1951
and a Oster Bread Machine Model 5814 (plus three paperbacks for $21)

Now all I have to do is learn how to make bread...............






This is not my picture but it looks just like this........

4. The oldies with the simple knob or toggle switch were the best

because they were easier to clean and let's face it, that array of little buttons didn't do anything special, at all. They just collected kitchen schmutz efficiently.

I still find myself using the blender more often than the food processor unless I've got a buttload of veggies to slice up.

9. Love the look of the blender! Great find. :)

If the bread machine doesn't have the instructions, you can probably find them online!

10. Baking bread is easy

And easier without a machine.

Use the Joy of Cooking basic white bread recipe.

Or for something slightly more complicated there's a great buttermilk bread recipe here.

11. I want your blender :)

The cool thing about Oster is the parts/threads to the blades/gasket/pitcher have not changed since my Mom got one as a wedding present in 1958.

I found the parts cheaper at Goodmans online: http://www.goodmans.net/d/668/oster-blenders-blender-parts.htm

Also the threads on the bladed base exactly (well sometimes you need an extra gasket) match true Mason/Ball jars. So you can add your smoothie stuff to a pint ball jar, screw on the blades; blend then drink. I have found Ball jars with handles at thrift stores. You have to check the threads; some store brand jelly jars or "kountry" look glassware have a threaded top but the pitch(?) is too short.
