Hamilton Beach Drinkmaster MixerBy Mark Chervenka
Hamilton Beach Drinkmaster Mixer
Mixed up on age?
Introduced in 1934, the Hamilton Beach Drinkmaster mixer has been a standard for Art Deco collectors as well as persons recreating the 1950s look in family rooms. The design is so popular it's back in production.
Like the originals, reproductions were available in institutional green and are still sold in white. How do you tell new from old? Original mixers are heavy cast iron with a thick porcelain finish. New are stamped metal with a painted finish. Reproductions like the one shown here retail for around $60. Working originals in good condition sell for $125-$160.
