the posting about refrigerators got me thinking as I was making toast today. My toaster is at least as old as me (54) and I believe it was a wedding present when my folks got married in 1950. It is still going strong - a Sunbeam. I also have a Sunbeam waffle iron that I believe has the same history.
Anyone else got a well-loved old appliance that you wouldn't trade in for love or money? I don't think they make them the same quality nowadays.
