Let's bring back these appliances
The Built-In Toaster and the Built-In Food Center
Here are a couple of built-in appliances from the past that were once commonplace as add-ons to high-end kitchen sales. Modern Maid's built-in toaster mounted conveniently between wall studs and popped out of the wall when needed. Back in the day, the chrome and black styling was compatible with most kitchens. Of course, a 21st century version would be stainless steel.
The heart of the Nutone Food Center was a flush to the countertop built-in power unit. The power unit accommodated a plethora of attachments such as a blender, food processor, mixer, juicer, ice crusher, meat grinder, and knife sharpener.
Each of these appliances had the space-saving benefit of helping keeping valuable counter space clutter-free. Both the food center and toaster required installation and were sold through the same channels as built-in appliances, just as the built-in coffee maker is sold today.
What do you think? Could you sell an updated version of either of these products today?
