About This Quiz

Can you imagine baking cookies without your stand mixer? Or making waffles by having to heat the griddle over the open flame of your stovetop? If you can, then you would have made out great with vintage kitchen items. But if you need electricity for your appliances, or one appliance that can do multiple tasks, you're better off in the current state of kitchen tools. 

The era of the 50s, 60s and 70s emphasized the vintage housewife ideal and hosting the most perfect dinner parties. If the place settings weren't just right, the proper platters and serving trays used for the right things, and leftovers wrapped up just right, you'll be the talk of the neighborhood for weeks. Talk about pressure. Good thing that era was equipped with plenty of tools to pull off the perfect evening. 

It seems the 70s loved their gadgets, and had almost a different one for every task. There were even tools that seem irrelevant in today's world. New items can be found at various stores in the mall or local brick and mortar shops, but if you're in the market for a vintage item, the internet is your best bet.
