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!
