An Appliance with a Story.
I have been intrigued by mix masters and food processors of late. There are too many to choose from though and I really want it to be useful. Mum had given this one to me when we first got married, but I did not have as much use for it then as I do now. I asked for it again recently. I have unpacked it today.
Now this was not a mere meeting with an appliance, but rather a little trip into time gone by. There were receipts in the manual. The receipt was for one hundred dollars. The year, 1979.
The receipt was issued from Singapore and there was a customs form attached as well. We were living in South Africa at the time and the letter attached to the customs form stated that my Dad was returning from a business trip to the "Far East". He picked up this food processor in Durban, once he had returned. Oh I hope this machine works as I would really like to keep it and not have to choose an 'anonymous' food processor/mix master now.
I bet noone else has such close ties with their appliances.
