The Sony BOOM boxes that took about 16 D batteries...if you were cool like that.

Sony Walkman with the spongy orange earphones. Nobody still has one of those...right?


I think it's out in the garage next to the 8 trak

I do not suppose that TV is an appliance but has anybody seen tube TV's for sale recently.  Nobody sells them in Knoxville.

I think I read somewhere that there are only one or two factories left in the world that make CRT's for tv sets/computer monitors... that means they're now harder to find and more expensive than flat screens. Last one I bought was at least 14 years ago.

A friend of mine has one and we still use it every Spring at the annual Frogmore Stew Event. She brings it and several people place their dishes on it to keep warm, I think last year it kept the choriqueso and a dish of buffalo balls.
 
NO - Not those kind either!!!!!

Those hair dryer things that had a base unit that heated the air, that ran through the hose that attached to the plastic bag you put over your hair.
 
The electric can opener that stood on legs and was NEVER the right height for ANY can.
 
HEY I GOT RIPPED OFF
I looked my Sony Boom Box only takes 12 D batteries!
But man could you break dance to that thing!

CK- i should have kept theirs when I emptied out the house. Still worked. AND i should have kept Mom's Oster electric fondue pot. Many uses-especially for nacho sauce.

When I was in college 20+ years ago, the old electric fondue pots were widely sought after, as they made excellent vessels for making ramen noodles.

Ann - Should I be surprised that you haven't written about missing your electric bong?

Basically it's an electric saucepan, right?  My parents gave me one new at the start of my freshman year and it provided many Sunday suppers of Chef B pasta products, Spaghetti-Os, soup, etc.
 
We have this electric griddle-type thing at home; I'll have to dig it out.  It belonged to my wife's great-aunt back in the '60s or '70s (looks like it was hardly ever used) and each surface has a number of indentations, each about the size of a ravioli.  I think it might've been intended for mini-sandwiches and the like...but the ravioli idea is kind of interesting.

I guess I predate you by another 20 years in college starting in '71 during the summer of my high school jr year. I didn't live in the dorms then or ever did for that matter, but I knew and hung out with pleny of folks that did. That was about the heyday of the fondue pots which were mostly cheap sets that used a can of Sterno. Of the three universities that I attended over my academic lifetime, most had some sort of prohibition about cooking in the rooms. No hotplates, toasters, toaster ovens, later micowaves. I never heard of anyone using a fondue pot, although it's reasonable given that most RA's would look past an immersion heater (those little coil-like things with a plug), maybe one of those hot doggers and most definitely what used to be called a "hot pot" That was the universal ramen noodle maker. I'm sure they're still around. Every pharmacy and grocery store used to sell them. They usually were about a 1 Qt. aluminum pitcher that sort of looked like a small perculator coffee pot with a removable top,pouring spout, and built in heating element that took one of those two prong cords. These were very inexpensively made and came in all sorts of colors back then.
 
Some additions:
 
Double wide hamburger presses that could double as a two sided grill
Hot air pop corn poppers
The dome type poppers that had the stirring arm
Electric perculators, some very elegant and expensive ones!
Stand alone Ice Crushers
Yogurt Makers
First Sun Tea makers during the 70's
Juicers..all kinds from orange to rotary macerating that made peanut butter too.
Anyone remember those attempts at countertop dishwashers that hooked up to the sink faucet?
 
On the ice crushers. They were accessories in some cases such as Waring offered one that used the base of the blender. Attachements to mixers's shafts, and the craziest was a knife sharpener my parents bought that had a box-like thing that attached to the back and used the motor inside. This one also sharpened knives too and was returned because it wouldn't open many cans without skipping spots.
 
The yogurt makers were nothing but a warming base with a bunch of thick glass cups and lids, but most all of the companies jumped on this one during the mid 70's. Every store had a half a dozen or more choices. 
 
This was also the time when the toaster ovens took off. Some of the companies such as Rival and Toastmaster took this trend to the limit building huge ones larger then most microwaves or countertop convection ovens of today that you could cook an entire 12-15lb turkey and had a broiling element. Not convection, just regular heating elements.

We made millions of the Norleco Toaster Ovens that used quartz elements.  As an aside, most of our workers were women.  The men in Clay County, KY were real go-getters. They'd take their wife to work in the morning and in the afternoon they'd go get her.

Not a broom...not a vacuum but the good ok' carpet sweeper that used no electricity and made the most horrific sound. I haven't seen one in hundreds of years...but I still cringe & shudder if I think of the sound of the carpet sweeper.

Many carpeted restaurants still use them in between customers around a messy table.  Our local Chinese place has 4 of them.

Still around, much to the chagrin of dogs and cats. I have a Bissell carpet sweeper. The newfangled version of these is the Original Europro Shark and the Swivel Sweeper that both run the roller brushes on batteries. Actually work quite well too until the batteries die.
 
Re: the electric knives. Just since the posting, I've kept my eyes out the past few days. I haven't been to any department or appliance store, but during the day's travels to grocery stores, I've seen one in Publix, two in Winn Dixie, and 4 in Navarro which is a large chain pharmacy down here so far. Imusa, 2 different models of Procter Silex, & Oster. That's just a small sampling of places, so it's probably fair to assume they're alive and well on the shelves down here.

Geeze Louise. Electric? Mine was plexiglass and human powered, ice was extra and too lazy to change the water regularly. The kids nowadays have electric vaporizers. Far cry from a pot of boiling water with a lump of vicks and a towel over our heads when we were kids.

I was armed and downright dangerous in the 80s with my butane curling iron & can of Vavoom hairspray...as tall as the Empire State Buildiing.

Non-smoking section for me.
