Wonderfully vintage! An aqua mid century General Electric stand AND hand mixer, with a Pyrex mixing bowl. Hands-free mixing on the stand, or the mixer slides off the base to be used as a hand mixer. The mixing bowl has the Pyrex name, Made in the USA, and the GE logo on the inside bottom. Includes the stand, mixer, bowl, and 2 beaters.

The mixer is in good vintage condition, with few issues. The mixer casing is plastic, the base is metal and the two have not faded evenly, so there is a very slight difference in the blues. It doesn't look bad at all, and I didn't even notice it until I started inspecting it closely. The metal areas are age appropriately chippy, but not extremely so. It could use a cleaning in the nooks and crannies. There is one small brown stain, on the back underside of the rubber molding. It's smaller than a dime and doesn't show when mixer is in the stand as pictured in photo 2. All of the white marks on the hand mixer in the photos are reflections, not flaws. Don't overlook the bowl - it's in very good vintage condition, with minimal wear. There are very few minor scratches, a tiny flea bite chip under the rim, and some "waviness" from the manufacturing process, which I think looks pretty cool. The bowl itself is a treasure - that logo is fantastic!

It does work, but the speed selector doesn't move as smoothly as it once did (who does after 50+ years?). There is a "hot" smell when it's turned on. I only checked to see that it works - I didn't actually use it and only let it run for a short time. As with all vintage electrical items, you should use caution and/or have it checked by a professional.

Whether you buy this to use, or as vintage decor, it would be a fabulous addition to any kitchen!
