Endurance Vintage Nutgrinder

Endurance Vintage Nutgrinder grinder for nuts

Kitchen prep work requires some elbow grease; chopping, slicing, mixing and cutting can be hard work. Ah, but the work is worth it when a delicious meal is the result. Still, sometimes cooking can seem like a marathon. One that requires endurance. Such as the Endurance Vintage Nutgrinder.

The 1.25-cup glass jar has a stainless steel hopper and a hand crank for manual nut grinding. It even has measurement markings along the side, so you can keep track of the progress — assuming you don’t stop for a ground nut snack along the way!

Retrosink: 1970’s Salton Peanut Butter Maker

1970's Salton Peanut Butter Maker

It’s not available anymore, but check out this 1970’s Salton Peanut Butter Maker that was up for sale on Amazon. Dig that orange and yellow palette! I can almost taste the 70s on my palate. They probably used to make so many of these things that they had to ship them on a pallet. Wouldn’t you agree, pals?

*** UPDATE 12/11/13 ***
It would be pretty hard to hunt down one of these vintage peanut butter makers again, so in the meantime, here is a new one: Nostalgia Electrics NBM400 Electric Peanut Butter Maker. Not colorful nor highly rated, it won’t evoke the same memories, but hey, it’s less than $30. Just imagine how many bags of peanuts that could buy in 1970!
