You don't often see antique items like these in kitchens these days.

These antique cooking and baking gadgets give new meaning to the phrase "just like Grandma used to make."

1 Cookie Press

Perfect for pumping out pretty cookies in the '50s.

(in reality, we still use a cookie press!)

2 Cake Breaker

Do not fear this scary-looking antique kitchen tool. It's actually meant for cutting delicate cakes like Angel food.

3 Flour, Sugar, and Tea Canisters

In Grandma's kitchen, everything had its rightful place.

4 Breadbox

Decorative breadboxes were all the rage in Grandma's day.

5 Butter Molds

Because it was very important that butter be beautiful, these molds came in all kinds of designs.

6 Strainer Sieve

This was a farmhouse must-have for making jam and tomato sauce.

7 Condiment Serving Tray

It was all about presentation in the good ol' days. Case in point: This cute condiment serving tray from the '60s with glass bowls and ladles.

8 Iron Trivets

Whether cast iron or wrought iron.

9 Egg Poacher Pan

If Grandpa liked his eggs poached, Grandma surely had one of these pretty pans.

10 Food Mill

The old-fashioned way to make everything from baby food and applesauce to mashed potatoes and pureed soups.

11 French Butter Dish

The clever design allowed for cool water to fill the area on the saucer around the glass bowl—effectively keeping butter chilled but still soft enough to spread.

12 French Fry Cutter

Because even grandmas craved fries.

13 Nesting Pastry Cutters

We're betting these nesting cutters bring back some memories of helping Grandma with pastry-making.

14 Hand Mixers

In the days before electric standing mixers, all the blending was done by hand, with little egg beaters like this one.

15 Ice Cream Sandwich Maker

We're totally down with bringing back this '70s Tupperware trend.

16 Ice Pet

For shaving ice. Anyone care for a snow cone?

17 Meat Tenderizer

Vintage meat mallets like this one look more like something from a horror film than the tenderizers we know today.

18 Aluminum Ice Trays

Before everything came in plastic, Grandma froze water in one of these metal contraptions with levers for easy ice removal.

19 Nutmeg Grinder

Etsy

Much like a pencil sharpener, grinders like this one from the '30s clamped onto the counter and could be cranked to churn out ground spices.

20 Pot Strainer

These little gadgets sat atop pots to make it easier to drain water.

21 Potato Mashers

You don't see these in most modern-day kitchens.

22 Vintage Pyrex Casserole Dish

Every Grandma had at least one of these. (Heck, we still have a whole collection!)

23 Soda Syphon

Basically the SodaStream of the '60s.

24 Slicer

This handheld utensil features 11 sharp metal blades—to conveniently slice things like eggs and cheese, of course.

25 Baking Mold

Vintage baking molds like this looked a lot like a waffle iron—only for cooking

I actually still use pyrex too.

Amazing!
I know very little.

It amazed me as I copied this, that much of this 'vintage' stuff I still use, the potato masher, the china cap and wodeenmallet(to make apple sauce) the pyrex dishes.  I find them at rummage and garage sales.  

You're a teacher in the kitchen. Congratulations!
