These antique cooking and baking gadgets give new meaning to the phrase "just like Grandma used to make."
Perfect for pumping out pretty cookies in the '50s.
(in reality, we still use a cookie press!)
Do not fear this scary-looking antique kitchen tool. It's actually meant for cutting delicate cakes like Angel food.
In Grandma's kitchen, everything had its rightful place.
Decorative breadboxes were all the rage in Grandma's day.
Because it was very important that butter be beautiful, these molds came in all kinds of designs.
This was a farmhouse must-have for making jam and tomato sauce.
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.
Whether cast iron or wrought iron.
If Grandpa liked his eggs poached, Grandma surely had one of these pretty pans.
The old-fashioned way to make everything from baby food and applesauce to mashed potatoes and pureed soups.
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.
Because even grandmas craved fries.
We're betting these nesting cutters bring back some memories of helping Grandma with pastry-making.
In the days before electric standing mixers, all the blending was done by hand, with little egg beaters like this one.
We're totally down with bringing back this '70s Tupperware trend.
For shaving ice. Anyone care for a snow cone?
Vintage meat mallets like this one look more like something from a horror film than the tenderizers we know today.
Before everything came in plastic, Grandma froze water in one of these metal contraptions with levers for easy ice removal.
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.
These little gadgets sat atop pots to make it easier to drain water.
You don't see these in most modern-day kitchens.
Basically the SodaStream of the '60s.
This handheld utensil features 11 sharp metal blades—to conveniently slice things like eggs and cheese, of course.
Vintage baking molds like this looked a lot like a waffle iron—only for cooking
I actually still use pyrex too.
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!
