VINTAGE HAMILTON BEACH "G" MIXER

Today it's my new early 1940's Hamilton Beach Model G Mixer...
I found this sitting in the back of a thrift store for ten bucks.
I cleaned it up and discovered it worked perfect, the inside was super clean and the original cork seals look like new.
The chrome little handle is really cool as it adjusts the speed "MixGuide".  And each speed shows what you can do on that speed... #4 Juicing Fruits...  Really cool.
The top hole there is for attachments.
Look how heavy duty the beaters are.. .they even have this chrome bar for extra strength.
The really cool part of this one is the top slides off and the top now becomes a hand mixer!  Plus, that other lever there pushes the bowl to the side so you can scrape the sides when you mix... 
I don't know why they don't make this feature anymore.
It came with two of it's original milk glass bowls.  Made by Pyrex and stamped Hamilton Beach.
I'm going to find some other attachments for this great mixer...
Check out that art deco design on the base of this thing... I mean, you can't find this attention to detail on a modern appliance... I like to make stuff in the kitchen and feel that a vintage mixer, is a must for a Vintage Gear Guy...

  1. I found my GM old mixer when I was spring cleaning the kitchen, in about the same shape but doesn't turn on. My dad's going to refurbish,and hopefully
    Get it working. Need to find bowls, don't know if most HB from that era will fit.

  3. This could well be the best mixer ever made! I have one that was a hand me down through the family. Unfortunately the bowls and other attachments have disappeared over time, but the mixer still works great! I think I'm going to buy another one so I have all the parts plus some extra pieces.

  4. Have 2 identical mixers with all of the juice attachments, however the beaters scrape the bottom of the bowls?! Anyone else have this problem?

    2. on the base of the mixer is a screw ,tilt the mixer back and turn the screw to the right one full turn at a time , that will raise the beaters off the bottom of the bowl , hope this helps you

  5. Anonymous - yes, that's how it works, there really is nothing that keeps it from hitting the bottom of the bowls. When you get a bunch of batter in it, it won't be an issue. I guess that was a design issue, but it also helped to mix in the contents down in the bottom of the bowl.

    1. yes there is , there is a screw on the back of the base , it adjusts the beaters up or down, can turn it to the right to raise them off the bottom . turn the screw left to lower the beaters so it will drag on the bottom of your dish or you can turn it to the right and raise them off the bottom

  7. I located this same model G also at a thrift store for $20 bucks. It works perfect thru all the speeds but needs a good cleaning. It runs very quiet compared to my other mixers.

  8. I bought one of these dandy mixers today but it didn't come with mixing bowls. I've check ebay and Etsy but the combined cost of the bowls and the shipping is sky high. Before I pop for them on-line, I'm going to visit some collectable shops to see if I can't find a bitter deal--maybe yes--maybe no.

  9. Antique malls and thrift stores have the accessories if you check weekly
