Sir Mix-a-lot

I am participating in a ” 31 Days of…” series for the month of October. You see a whole bunch of sweet blogger buddies have been getting together the past few years to do 31 posts in 31 days. The topic is always something they have a passion for. This year they have invited all of their readers to post 31 days of their passions. If you are interested in participating in the 31 Days of…series, or you’re just curious about what everyone else is writing about, please visit The Nester, Jen, Melissa, Sandy, Darcy, Emily, and Emily. I hope you enjoy my series on finding treasures both vintage and of the heart. Let’s hope I can overcome my inconsistent blogging habit and share those 31 posts within the next 31 days!

Shall I introduce you to Sir Mix-A-Lot?

Sorry to get your hopes up, it’s just a mixer, not the rapper. But it’s a pretty cool mixer if you ask me. Last weekend I purchased the 4200 Dormeyer mixer for $5, with all original parts and the manual, including the milk glass mixing bowls which is what drew me in. It was a deal I could NOT pass up. And it works! I tried it out the other day and didn’t burn down the house! WOO-HOO! A thousand points for not having to meet the fire department yet again!

The only piece that’s missing is the wooden pestle or, the smasher in April terms. I assume it was for the meat grinder, doesn’t the sound yummy?

I loved the settings this puppy has…

Plus, if your clueless in the kitchen like me, it’s got all the measuring conversions…

I really don’t think this has much re-sale value as the brand isn’t all that well known. But I love it and am currently researching how I could get this little gem back into a usable and safe condition. Because really, where can you find a stand mixer for $5 ?
